Hi Lillian8,

I was in the Bay Area to be exact Mill Valley a few days ago, it is very nice and green there! I am in Pasadena 15-20 minutes on the 110 freeway to DTLA. I grew up here so I am familiar with the area. I have seen the prices continue to rise for a while now. These are the zip codes for and near DTLA http://www.zipmap.net/California/Los_Angeles_County/Z_New_Downtown.htm .

Here are some statistics for zip code 90015:

Month.....Active.......Sale price average
Jan.........85.................$456,865
Feb.........81.................$782,297
Mar.........77.................$738,991
Apr.........71..................$738,991
May.........69................$658,000

Time frame is from Jan 2014 to May 2014
Type is 'Single Family Residence', 'Condominium', 'Townhouse'

Most agents may recommend themselves so it's up to you to decide who you connect with or feel comfortable with. Call a few and see if you are comfortable with him or her, visit their website to find out a bit more about them.

Much success!

Von

Obviously, before you talk to the city, hire a good contractor who knows code or an independent code inspector to look things over.
