Good day. Finding a condo in the Hollywood or Rose City Neighborhoods in the price range you've mentioned is indeed possible at this time. in fact there are presently about 5 in the price range you mentioned with a few others than are listed a bit higher, but with some negotiation could perhaps be persuaded to move down a little. If you go to http://www.RoseCityProperty.com and then pick the Rose City and Hollywood area you can receive daily emails of not only those presently on the market, but also any that may come on in the near future.
You are right about the Whole Foods coming to the Hollywood area. It is in the process of being built at this time. The Library is also close along with a Trader Joes, 24 Hour Fitness and an increasing amount of new retail and restaurant establishments. Please don't hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I do work in the area and have lived in the neighborhood for over 20 years.... more
