gangs. dogs. drugs. shooting. real estate agents are here to sell you a home and lie. the houses are constantly improving but the area has a bad rep due to the gang activities, etc. come at night on a sat and sun and judge for yourself. i lived here from 1982-2007. not pleasant.

Sorry to hear you've had a bad experience with agents. I would advise to any client asking about safety to check with the local law enforcement websites. Every buyer should educate themselves about the area they are buying into. While no one can predict the future for an area, you can get a pretty good idea when studying the past and looking at the economic profile of the neighborhood.
Good luck.

I have lived in this area all my life. I say wait for the next housing bubble to burst. These very inflated prices are too high for the area. The same homes were in the $200 - 300k's. The area is OK but certainly not worth the prices folk are asking for these days!

Hi Rosiesworld:

Park Mesa Heights is part of the City of Los Angeles, which is a very diverse community. They have a Park Mesa Heights Community Council in which you can get some further information regarding the demographics of the area. I have attached the link below.

The area has changed a lot over the past several years due to the change in property ownership, whereas, the home prices have been lower, and people wanting to obtain homeownership have moved in, upgrading the homes and having pride of ownership. Also, the City of Los Angeles has made great strides in attempting to bring in businesses and to beautify many of the major areas, like the Crenshaw District.

Take a look at the website.

Good luck and all the best,

Park Mesa Hgts is a diverse mix of Hispanic, Black, Asian and White residents, most of whom are home owners. According to 77th Division LAPD, Park Mes Hgts has one of the lowest crime rates in the entire divison. We don't have gangs, or graffitt. There is a Charter middle ahd high school in the immediate area. We take great price in our residential properties and welcome new neighbors. Property values have recently risen to more realistic levels, but there are a few that I would consider to be overpriced. Most however, fall within reasonable price points conisdering that the lots are fairly large, the homes are vintage and have withstood the elements for decades. The area is very stable. People move here and don't leave, so the average length of ownership easily exceeds what you might find elsewhere.
