Los Angeles Real Estate Market Overview

This city of perpetual sunshine and good vibes has taken the nasty word "sprawl" and transformed it into its biggest advantage. Because L.A.'s charms are not easily accessible, they're discovered with an open mind, patience, and time spent in each of its many enclaves. From the ocean to the valleys, each neighborhood has its own distinct personality - with plenty of things to do. But shared in eve...ry corner of this city is that starry-eyed notion of starting fresh, and many of its neighborhoods have lived different lives over the decades. Only fitting for a city always gleaming with the promise of reinvention.View more

Moments in Los Angeles

Insider Tips: Where to Go



Grab the (arguably) best breakfast in town at Sqirl - a pesto rice bowl or a thick slab of toast - then walk off the carbs at the beautifully renovated Reservoir.



Spend the afternoon shopping along Sunset Boulevard. Gawk at goods from Mohawk General Store, try on brass cuffs at Dream Collective, or pick up a gift for someone with impeccable taste from Hemingway & Pickett.



L.A. nights can be chilly, so slurp up a steaming bowl of ramen at Silver Lake Ramen, then throw back a glass of chilled rose and oysters on L&E Oyster Bar's patio.
