Superfine Pizza Owners to Open Playa Vista Restaurant
By Yo! Venice, 12/24/2022

The owners of Rossoblu and Superfine Pizza, Steve and Dina Sampson, have plans for a new eatery in Playa Vista as reported by What Now Los Angeles.

Reportedly, this new restaurant Superfine Playa should open early in 2023. Superfine Playa will be located at 12746 W Jefferson Blvd, where the recently shuttered Bull & Butterfly used to be.

According to WNLA, as the name suggests, the restaurant will not only serve the pies that Superfine DTLA is already celebrated for but, as a full-service restaurant, the menu will also come with pasta, “wood-grilled proteins” and vegetable-based dishes that would include items brought straight from the “nearby Playa Vista Farmers Market.”

Heading into the holidays, mortgage rates continued to move down. Rates have declined significantly over the past six weeks, which is helpful for potential homebuyers, but new data indicates homeowners are hesitant to list their homes. Many of those homeowners are carefully weighing their options as more than two-thirds of current homeowners have a fixed mortgage rate of below four percent.
Housing Market Doesn’t Need Much for Buyers to Return
Housing Market Doesn't Need Much for Buyers to Return
by Conor Sen (Bloomberg), The Washington Post, 12/20/2022

Surging mortgage rates have brought the housing market down from its giddy highs earlier this year. Now the question on everyone’s mind is how low will building, buying and prices go? We’ve already seen people who follow the market speculate about housing prices falling 10% or even 20% from peak levels.

But that kind of shock-and-awe analysis is incomplete, and based on an assumption that housing affordability has to snap back to pre-pandemic levels, or match some theoretical monthly payment-to-income ratio. A better guess about where the housing market will stabilize would take into account the fact that housing activity was still just fine up until April, even though affordability was much worse than pre-pandemic. You also would need to account for the squiggles in the data as mortgage rates have moved up and down since then.

by Michael Kolomatsky, New York Times, 12/22/2022

As prices rise, higher mortgage payments follow, and after nearly three years of rapid home appreciation during the pandemic, qualifying for a home loan is more difficult than ever. Today’s buyers also face the additional cost of rising interest rates.

In its most recent quarterly report,, a source for national mortgage and home equity rates and news, charted the annual income required to qualify for a mortgage on a median price home in the country’s 50 largest metropolitan areas.
