Hot Property: Veteran actor buys L.A. condo

August 20, 2009 |  6:46 pm

Veteran actor James Hong ("Balls of Fury") has purchased a condo in a courtyard-style building in Los Angeles for $721,000, public records show.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit has 1,437 square feet of space plus a patio with fireplace off the living room. There's a formal dining room, hardwood floors, city views and custom cherry cabinets and granite counters in the kitchen.

If you aren't familiar with Hong's body of work, imdb has about 350 acting credits for the 80-year-old spanning more than five decades.

In Hong's new 90048 ZIP Code, 19 condos sold in the first half of 2009 at a median price of $502, according to MDA DataQuick. That was a price drop of 9.5% from the same period in 2008. My calculator shows he paid just about that per square foot. 

No photos on this one.
