Silicon Beach Creates a High Demand for L.A. Westside Homes

Silicon Valley is well known, but have you heard of Silicon Beach? There has been a huge growth in start-up tech companies on the Westside in an approximate three-mile area covering Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey and Playa Vista.

Companies such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Snapchat and Hulu have branched out into “Silicon Beach”, and Los Angeles as a whole probably has the the second or third highest concentration of tech companies in the world. With this kind of growth there would be a high demand for homes normally, and this is compounded by the severe shortage of inventory.
