I've lived in the Village Green for 12 years and I and I'm pretty sure nearly all of my neighbors feel perfectly safe here. If you click through to the Trulia crime maps, you'll see that there isn't any significant crime that happens within the Village Green itself, or in the immediately adjacent neighborhoods. Inside the Village Green, we are mostly older retired people and young professional families. To the south, there is a quiet hillside residential neighborhood and then the Kenneth Hahn Park. To the west, there is a major commercial center (Target) and then the super-hot (and safe) Hayden Tract and Culver City Arts District. To the north there is a quiet residential neighborhood hemmed in as a big cul-de-sac by the Expo Line tracks (very safe). To the east, there is the rapidly gentrifying Leimert Park neighborhood. The only semi-dangerous neighborhood nearby is the Baldwin Village area (a.k.a. "the Jungle") a few blocks away to the southeast, which in years past was notorious for gangs and drugs, but has since quieted down significantly. We do also have 24-hour security provided by the HOA that helps to keep a close watch on things, but it's safe regardless. The worst that we suffer is the occasional car break-in on the perimeter. ... more

Hi Len

Thanks for your opinion, however if you noticed this was posted in 2009 from a buyer in North Carolina, you would have also noticed the buyer is interested in buying in Baldwin Hills, CA which in in Los Angeles County.

Also, it seems this question pops up in the local current Q&A and therefore an LA buyer or an East Coast buyer wanting to relocate for some reason, may also appreciate the answer.

Steps to Buying.

1) Don't get fixed on one thought, keep an open mind
2) Interview and select a Realtor who knows of several loan programs
1) FHA 2) HomePath 3) BMR 4) City/County Programs
3) Your Realtor will recommend one or more lenders to work with and possibly a financial planner.
4) Your Realtor will take you through the Buyer Process in a Buyer's Interview Meeting
5) You very well may be able to find something that is not a foreclosure, so as I started with, Keep an open mind.
6) Your Realtor will give you a plan and a list along with your lender to achieve your goal.

Good Luck. Oh, geez, I just typed this whole thing up and realized you posted this in November. Did you find your home?

No not really. A Seller is free to accept or reject offers. If the offer is for full price and the seller rejects it, they might be liable for commission to the listing agent.

There are no consequences unless you have broken/violated any of the equal housing laws. Rejection just means there was not a "meeting of the minds" hence there is no agreement. Also, in California all real estate transactions must be "in writing". ... more
