I have been living in "Upper Irvington" yes Upper Irvington for over 25 years and it is not blending into the city as one of our viewers have mentioned. If you don't live here don't offer any views. It have been very quite in my neighborhood, never had any major problems and also raised my son here. Surprisingly, not what people want to expect because it's close to a big city Newark, which is becoming more advanced in its later days. Other towns are good, such as Bloomfield, West Orange, South Orange. These are other areas close to NYC. We also have a new mayor who is very assessable to the people and yes the old mayor was horrible, but the new major is awesome! He walks the streets in the neighborhood to receive and answer any complaints.... more
Westchester L.A. CA 90045 home prices have really appreciated. Westside location close to freeway, Playa Vista Silicon Beach, beaches, parks, Loyola, upscale shopping centers and restaurants. Homes built after WW11 and new construction. Inland homes and bluff homes with views. Yes the drawback is the proximity to the airport. There are certain sections the experience airplane noise. Other areas do not experience the airplane noise. Not an expert on pollution level. Would assume pollution levels highest close to airport and freeway (405).
As a buyer determine areas of Westchester that are desirable. It is a great community.

Since 2015 there has been a scarcity of properties on the market. More buyer's demand than housing inventory. With low interest rates and housing scarcity home values have appreciated. September 2016 noticing more inventory, listings on market longer and asking price reductions. The market maybe leveling off or correcting. Buyers always want to see most recent listing. In addition, consider listings that have been on market for some time. Those sellers maybe receptive to reasonable offer. Active buyers should have current active and daily updates.... more
