         The Perfect Storm


Limited geographical area of demand -- approx. 7 square miles.

Strong historical base of support from entertainment industry for filming and short term residential rentals.


Steady Increase in International Demand -- investors and families from Asia, Australia, Middle East and Europe as well as the U.S.

      Airbnb, VRBO/Home Away and others have created 

efficient global e-commerce platforms and

increased market awareness and demand for short term rentals.

The Arbitrage

          A well-priced, well appointed and well marketed,

luxury short term rental home can average up to 20 rental or more

rental nights per month.

    TriCanyon homes generally recoup  all monthly carrying cost (mortgage, taxes, utilities, maintenance) in 9  to 11 rental nights 

per month... everything else is profit.

          Short term rental revenue can be double or more than that of a year-long lease and average 20% -30% annual, net,

cash return on investment...

...And still allow an investor/homeowner to have

ample time in the home to enjoy it.

And provide an ongoing capital appreciation opportunity.

                           a pool is a must have.

TriCanyon Luxury

Finding Value in the Hills

Sunset Plaza Drive, Hollywood Hills West

Home prices in the Hills, with the criteria TriCanyon looks for, generally range from $700 per square foot to over $2,000

per sq. ft., depending on the neighborhood, land (views, location,

lot size and % flat) and the size and condition of the home.

New and fully renovated homes generally cost $1,200 per sq. ft. and up, depending on location, particularly if they have the

V and 5 Ps; Most homes priced over $2,000 per square foot have an exceptional amount of land (for the area), jetliner views,

and are larger than 8,000 square feet.

At TriCanyon, we believe there is excellent value in homes between 2,800 – 5,000 sq. ft. and  priced between $2 million - $4.5 million, costing $700 - $1,000 per sq. ft.

We like ugly ducklings... homes in good condition that need cosmetic work to look their best. These homes tend to sell for a discount to full value. With relatively little money in improvements, they can be made pristine. “Presence” is the easiest “P” to add or fix.

We like smaller homes, on great land, with room to grow…

 Home additions, with high-end finishes, can readily be built for $250 - $500 per sq. ft., creating a potential profit of $500 -$750 per sq. ft.

on the new space, in a neighborhood where renovated and new homes sell for $1,000 - $1,300 per sq. ft.
