Which are the nicest neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley?

Asked by Jb, Agoura, CA Mon Jul 28, 2008

Hello - I am looking for a 3 bed, 2 bath in the valley but I am not very familiar with the neighborhoods. Our budget is around $400K.
Thank you!

Chek out on Zillow you'll find tons of option, the more you look around the better idea you'll have of every neighborhood. Let me tell you in advance with that budget you can find some single family but in the center of the Valley, Reseda, Winetka etc.

Hi Jen,

You can find some homes in Encino, Lake Balboa, Tarzana, and Van Nuys in the 400K range, they may not be 3+2, more will be 2+1, but there will be some. You don't say where you work and what other things might be important to you, so those are some good choices off the top of my head. You can search on my website, or call me if you like, so that I can get a better sense of what the nicest neighborhoods for you might be.

Best regards,

There are lots of options, depending upon your needs.
Agoura is a lot different than the valley, and the SFV is pretty big, so you might need to narrow down your search a little.
If you'd like some assistance I have an associate that work in the valley. You can contact me via my Trulia profile.

A three bedroom condominium in Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Encino or Woodland Hills would be your best bet. Starter single family homes in these area range from $700,000 and up.

Hello Jb,

I grew up in Toluca Lake. I know some agents will say there areas are best but where the values are highest and truly are great neighborhoods to live in I would put Toluca Lake, Sherman Oaks, Encino, Woodland Hills, Studio City, Valley Village and Burbank. If you would consider a condo (those areas you may not find a condo in with 3 bedroom, Other options would be Valley Glen and Lake Balboa. If it's a home your looking for and not a condo then North Hollywood and West Van Nuys might be doable options.
