If you're feeling bummed-out because your loan officer told you that you only qualify for $325k and you want to live in Hollywood, Silverlake or Echo Park, you may want to consider broadening your horizons a bit. You still have options in the LA Metro area, my friends! A place that's within your budget, has tons of charm, great neighbors and plenty of amenities. Take a look at Leimert Park.
Not only will you find better prices for more house, but you'll find that you're still in close proximity to all things necessary: shopping, cultural events, good eats and live entertainment. This is your answer to home ownership!
As of today, there are approximately 19 homes for sale in the Leimert Park area under $350k. Here are my favorites:
|3bed/2bath with 1,575 sqft, remodeled Spanish style home...listed by H. Moreno (First American Home Team) at $319,000|
|3bed/2bath with 1,915 sqft, needs some restoration..listed by Jesse Correa (Keller Williams) at $329,000|
|3bed/1bath with 916 sqft, beautifully remodeled...listed by Alberto Acuna (Pacific Properties) at $259,000!!!|
