Google is expanding its presence in Los Angeles buying 12 acres in the Playa Vista development. It is estimated that this will bring in as many as 6,000 employees. This, coupled with the huge growth of the tech industry in the general area known as “Silicon Beach”, is of course good news for the local economy in general and the real estate industry in particular.
Where are all of these people going to live, especially in the sellers’ market that is Los Angeles real estate at present?
Let’s take a look at activity over the past six months in some of the neighboring areas.
82 homes sold. The majority of housing in Playa Vista is condominium complexes. Only 12 of the sales were single family.
The low was $365,000 and the high $1,634,000. The median price was $769,500.
