Great article. Just so you understand that area and what is involved.
One of the other factors that contributes to the price difference between Westlake Terrace/Palisades and Westlake #1 and the northern end of Westlake Highlands, for example, is the proximity to BART and Westlake Center. Like anything else with a home purchase, it's really all about your personal priorities. I agree with others that Westlake Terrace and Palisades can be a fantastic value - I call it the "fog discount". Or, if you prefer something closer to the city and with a more gentle climate, it might be worth the higher price for you to be in one of the more Northern neighborhoods.

If you purchase a home there, make sure there is no mold. Once you own the home, Make sure you have a good paint job, good roof and windows and also proper ventilation.
