First, Congrats on your decision to buy a home! I work with a ton of first time home buyers who have limited funds but are ready to purchase now. It is possible. There are lots of neighborhoods in Los Angeles that you can afford. Are you willing to get your hands dirty? Expect to paint and do a few other improvements over time. I can assure you that if you have an open mind and you are determined you will definitely get something in that range! Best of Luck Raj!Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions and haven't found the perfect agent.

Hi Raj;
I'm just wondering why a single family home vs. a condo? A condominium will give you more options, with more square footage, in more, and better, neighborhoods.
You can, of course, find properties throughout Los Angeles and surrounding counties that are single family homes. In addition, if you want to reside in the property, consider a duplex or triplex, which will assist you with income to help make the payments.
The real estate landscape is broad. I'm confident you can find the right fit.

Hi Raj. It is possible to be able to buy a house for $180,000! but you will be limited to the areas where you can purchace your home. And the market is very competetive right now .

Hello Raj,

It's possible. Depends on if you are picky about neighborhoods or open. There are a lot of options in Los Angeles. I have such a property listed on Trulia. You would have better options in Condos neighborhood wise but yes, you can get a home for 180k in LA Couty.

Hi Raj,
You can get a home for $180,000.00 in Los Angeles. Since the inventory at that price point is hard to come by, you'd have to be ready to by right away. What I mean to say is that if you saw something you like at $180,000.00, you'd have to jump on it and have all your ducks in a row--loan, etc.
if you'd like to see what's available, I could send you all listings of properties for sale at $180,000.00. Feel free to email or call me.

There are SFRs for under $200,000 but they will be in outlying areas of Los Angeles. It will depend upon where you are commuting to work, and or what part of the city you spend your time in, but in general the northern San Fernando Valley and the Inland Empire would be the first general areas to consider.
