Real estate listings site Redfin recently released its latest sales report for Los Angeles.
Its analysis, based on March sales, found that the median home price in the market is $575,000. Ouch.
The median price of a house on the Westside “broke” the $1.2 million barrier mark, a spokesman for the site said.
There's still hope, however (if you live in a two-paycheck home where both people make way more than L.A.'s median household income … ).
Here are the 10 most-affordable real estate communities in Los Angeles highlighted by Redfin's report. Some of the areas are crime-challenged. Others are just challenged. But look closely and you might find a hidden gem:
10. North Valley $455,000
9. Sun Valley $440,000
8. Fox Hills $432,000
7. Sylmar $400,000
6. South L.A. $386,000
5. Panorama City $368,000
4. “South Central” L.A. $359,450
3. West Long Beach $355,100
2. Pacoima $343,000
1. Watts $287,500
Happy house hunting.
