Buying a Home in Los Angeles by Neighborhood – Westwood and Century City

Buying a Home in Los Angeles WestwoodYou are new to Los Angelesthinking of buying a home in Los Angeles, but have no idea where to start.

We could use West Los Angeles as an area, but this is such a loose term and there arguments as to what really constitutes West Los Angeles.  In my mind West Los Angeles is an area that stretches from Westwood south to Rancho Park and Palms, west to Beverly Hills, and east to Brentwood  and Santa Monica,  and for the purposes of this post it will be included together with Century City,  a small area on the south-east side of West L.A.

Westwood 90024,  is the home of UCLA and a mix of commercial and residential with multi million dollar homes and condos and apartment buildings, the latter prevalent near the campus.  Westwood Village boasts movie theaters, restaurants and shopping.  Westwood is a desirable area for students attending the college.

The Wilshire Corridor 90024, also known as The Golden Mile is an approximately 2-mile stretch of high rise, high-priced condo buildings perfect for those looking to downsize and live in pampered luxury.

Century City 90067, is a commercial and residential district which derives its name from 20th Century Fox and sits on the old back lot of the studios.  It is home to many entertainment, law firms and upscale condo buildings, both low and high rise,  including the new Century, and it is one of the few areas that offers some nice outdoor space in its complexes.

West Los Angeles,  is a more affordable area on the Westside of Los Angeles.  Close enough to UCLA, Santa Monica, Brentwood and Beverly Hills, but easier on the pocket book.
