There are 3 listings available in Ladera in your price range.
- $439,000 asking Old Ladera
- $539,000 asking Old Ladera
- $639,900 asking New Ladera
The 2 available under $600k are in Old Ladera and the least expensive in New Ladera asking $639,900. Contact me and I will be happy to send all listings in Ladera Heights. I think with your price range you may be do able to purchase in your range. You need daily MLS availibility.

Your budget is within range of the area. However, these homes are highly desired and move fast. Competition is intense. You may want to begin searching other areas (90043 has a very desirable area in Angeles Vista). I can send you some additional properties that may be of interest to you.

HI Joyce,
Your range of budget should be enough to find something suitable for you in that neighborhood.
You should have an agent help you by going thru the MLS to find what is currently for sale, and for how much.
I like to take my clients thru the area they are considering, and go through the listings, and prices to give them a starting point to begin our search. I like Ladera heights myself, and feel they is some properties that could interest you right now. Feel free to contact me if you need any help, or information to begin your search.
Best of luck!

Hi Joyce I strongly suggest you connect with an experienced area Realtor, someone you have open and straightforward communication with and who will not only send you all that is there in your price range, but who also understands what it is that you like and dislike, what your must haves are and your would be nice to haves.

Also do you need to sell a property in order to purchase the new 500 K to 600 K property, and make sure
you are pre-approved by a reputable lender so that you can quickly make an offer....

Hi Joyce,

I am looking for another client who is interested in the same area. There are homes that become available in the price range you mentioned, but since this is a very popular section of town, they go fast. If you are serious about wanting a home in Ladera Heights, please contact me, and I will add you to my Home Buyers Scouting list, so you are the first to know of properties as they become available for sale.

We will also need to review your Loan pre-approval documentation to make sure you are ready to move when the Right House becomes available for The Right Price in Ladera Heights.

Best Regards,

Hello Jocye,

This is a small area. Not too mich on the market right now but come the first of the year hopefully we will see more inventory. In your price range in Ladera Heights your going to be looking at a fixer. If that is ok with you let me know and I'll send you a few options. Many of the homes in Ladera Heights get listed in Los Angeles Southwest of the MLS instead of Ladera Heights so they can be tricky to find but I know the area well and will be happy to help.
Something will me up. If it's a short sale, be patient.

Hi Joyce,

You most certainly can find a single family home in Ladera Heights in your price range...I have for my clients! Keep in mind that in this range you are most likely to find a 3 bedroom fixer home that may be a short sale or bank-owned property. Such homes will generally be concentrated in Old Ladera (east of La Cienega/south of Slauson)) and Lower Ladera (west of La Cienega/south of Slauson).

Please contact me for additional information as currently there are properties on the market that fit these specifications.

Happy house hunting!
