Real Estate: The Hot Property column in the Nov. 4 Real Estate section reported that actor Matthew McConaughey personally knocked on the door of a Malibu home that wasn't on the market and struck a deal. However, the story should not have implied that he chose the home at random. He was represented by Lily Harfouche of Coldwell Banker-Malibu West and was shown the house by the seller's agent, Michael Cunningham of Pritchett-Rapf & Associates, Malibu Road, who had a pocket listing on it.

Well, it has finally happened. I knew it would eventually. The Sunday Real Estate Section has totally disappeared. First, they eliminated nearly all the garden features, then Remodeler's Diary, then it became only a two- or three-page section. Even my small local paper managed to put out a two-page real estate section on the holiday weekend. But The Times had absolutely nothing. Hello back there. Is anybody listening? Please bring back my Sunday Real Estate Section with more remodeling and gardening articles, otherwise, I'll have no reason to get up on Sundays and no excuses for not getting dressed until 10 a.m. CAROLYN LINGOR El Monte

Is there any other subject "Hot Property" can represent besides celebrities and where they are living and for how much? Does this insignificant information need to be the front cover story of importance for this town and the Real Estate section? Is this the best you guys can do? We're waiting for something better.

For years I have watched in vain for a story about dog houses on Page 9 of the Real Estate section (that would be K9, wouldn't it?). AL HIX Hollywood

I would like to compliment you for your excellent articles which appear in the Real Estate section. In particular, I am interested in Real Estate Q&A, the "Hot Property" column, the Gardening section and the other articles of general interest. Candidly, from all the many sections in the Sunday Times, I feel that the Real Estate Section is simply the best. JOHN SCOTT MATTHEW Sherman Oaks

Congratulations on your new, interesting "Hind Site" column in the Real Estate section of the Los Angeles Times. Combining history and facts, Evelyn De Wolfe has tied L.A.'s past to the present and turned out a concise gem. I have enjoyed her in-depth reporting on articles in the past, such as one on the little known architects of Hearst Castle. "Hind Site," however has enhanced the Real Estate section in that it creates a mini-series to look forward to. Its brevity is really appreciated in this era when time is of an essence, and it is both informative and interesting.

I am so impressed with your newly revised Real Estate Section that I decided to write and say "thank you." Especially to be noted are sections on preservation, urban scene, architects, gardening and home improvements. Leon Whiteson's article on the Home Savings of America Tower (March 19) was well written and most interesting. SHIRLEY SUPPLE Arcadia

A home with sweeping views of the city: That's how restaurateur Dave Chasen envisioned the house designed for him and his family in 1954 by architect Paul Williams. With its walls of glass, and focus on the California indoor-outdoor lifestyle, the home is acknowledged by many in the real estate community as one of the most spectacular view estates in the L.A. area.

This is the first time I have written a letter in regard to a column in the Real Estate Section of Sunday's paper, but I felt compelled to do so after yesterday's (Feb. 21) article "California, Here I Go." My wife and I both read the article and had identical reactions: Why in the world would you print such an article? Given the status of the economy and the real estate market in the Southland, this was, at the very least, a strange article. Perhaps The Times has concluded that the majority of your subscribers are thinking of relocating to another state and, as a reward for years of loyalty, you are now telling them exactly where to go!

I have been a strong enthusiast of the Real Estate Section of the Los Angeles Times for the past 25 years. I felt that it has always exhibited a very high degree of professionalism and good taste. However, I have always been perplexed by the "Hot Property" feature. This is the kind of news that belongs in the entertainment section or somewhere else! I feel there is much more going on in this Greater Los Angeles area that is more newsworthy than these kinds of articles.

These comments relate to the "For Rent" article which appeared in the Real Estate Section on March 22. We operate rental housing in the Hollywood and Mid-Wilshire areas and our current vacancy rate is 11%. It has previously been as high as 15%-17%. I know of other owners who are currently experiencing 15%-20% vacancy rates. The figure quoted of 6.6% is unrealistically low and 5.8% last year is a figment of someone's imagination.
