Westwood Real Estate Market Overview

Home to UCLA and minutes from the beach, Westwood is a blend of bustling college town and upscale residential community. Head to Westwood Village at lunchtime and you'll be squeezed in line next to suits, scrubs, and sweatpants. The fairly young population here lives and works in some of Los Angeles' most historically significant buildings - art deco and Mediterranean gems dating back to the 1930s and '...;40s (which is ancient in L.A. years!). Once a hot spot for nighttime entertainment, Westwood has recently revitalized itself as a center for arts and culture on the west side, boasting The Hammer Museum, new art galleries, and trendy dining.View more
