Steve is right. This property will not sell in the open market for $25k. It is not listed on the MLS for sale. If you have a specific price range in mind, let us know. $25,000 is not a realistic price though for a home in the LA Metro Area. This property most likely has other loans on it for much more.
As far as schools go, I can't tell you for sure which schools or parks are in the area since the property address is not listed.
All the best,

Iâ€™m not sure whether you have been formally Pre-Approved. As far as buying, this is your first step (not a pre-qualification, see:. http://www.Steven-Anthony.com/default.aspx?pp=39377 for the difference between the two) so you can be ready to act when you need to, or be aware of any issues that may prevent you from buying when you want to.
To avoid being "RealtyTracked" again, and assuming you would like to continue searching for a property on your own, do so via http://www.Realtor.com as they load ALL listings from ALL Assoc. of Realtors MLS systems automatically. Trulia is making strides to do this as well, but it will be some time before their feeds are comprehensive.
