I am a Realtor and I've lived in Culver City close to this location for over 20 years. I think the area will definitely gentrify, and in fact is doing that already. Since Silicon Beach has caused home prices to rise exponentially in our neighborhood, and there is a shortage of inventory, buyers who would have preferred to be in Culver City proper, rather than slightly adjacent are moving there.

Ron Escobar's description is accurate. Good luck in your home search!

Anywhere from 200-500 per sf. Lots of variables. A good finsih would be 300/sf but there is no end to the finished one can pick. If you are on the strand, the finished are very high but if you are building in east part of MB, next to Aviation, do not over spend. You have to look at neighboring homes and then decide. Cost estimates change with time. Good luck.

Hi There!

So, I gather you bought a Home either on the Court steps or For Sale by Owner.

If you bought it off the MLS then you would have signed off on HOA documents and if there was
a neighborhood Pool or a HOA, then you would have been made aware via your Agent.

If you have lived in the home for Years and are not aware then Relax there is none,
otherwise you would have been in default and Foreclosed on by your HOA.

I really hope this helps you!

My husband and I bought a house in Idell Street , Ca 90065 10 years was rented out till we relocated from Boston, 2 years ago.
We find this area safe. My neighbors are helpful and friendly. Even strangers we meet while walking smile and say "Hello".
We love the public transportation....busses and subway.
Lots of grocery stores, markets and within walking distance to my house is Burger King, Mac Donald, Home Depot, Ihop etc.......very convenient location.
I asked my neighbors about safety issues and they told me that they have not heard of any. I guess in any area/environment, one must use common sense and be alert at all times.
We have off street parking and we have not heard of any stolen cars to date.
The con against living here is that there is a church and school in this there is some noise factor.
I think that covers it.

Michelle Menna answered:
Here is a link to Wikipedia
It says it was Harvey McCarthy & then Spyros George Ponty in 1933.

In 1922, J. Harvey McCarthy developed the area as an upscale residential district along the San Vicente Boulevard line of the Pacific Electric Railway, bounded by Wilshire Blvd. on the north, Fairfax Avenue on the east, Olympic Blvd. on the south and Schumacher Drive on the west. McCarthy originally named the district Carthay Center (Carthay being a derivative of the developer's last name). The areas to the south of Olympic Boulevard remained undeveloped until 1933, when developer Spyros George Ponty built several hundred homes in two districts later named "South Carthay" and "Carthay Square" that are part of the Pico-Robertson neighborhood according to [6]and also part of the P.I.C.O. Neighborhood Council.

The Carthay Center development included the single-screen movie house known as the Carthay Circle Theatre at Carrillo Drive and Commodore Sloat Drive, just south of San Vicente Blvd. This renowned theater's name resulted in confusion that led to the area today being known as Carthay Circle. Although Carthay Center in no way ever resembled a circle, the Carthay Circle Theatre did. The more famous theater's name (similar sounding to Columbus Circle, an actual circle in New York City) evolved over time to become the name of the lesser-known Carthay Center.

A three month single family home/ condominium/apartment furnished lease in the city will be more difficult than the West Los Angeles beach cities (Venice, CA, Marina del Rey, CA and Santa Monica, CA). In addition to scarcity it can be costly. I would suggest checking with Westside Rentals and Craigslist.

Gail Mercedes Cole answered:
The price per square foot is going to very per areas in 90035. Price per square feet is not going to be the same for single family home compared to duplexes in area. With a specific area and property type in Los Angeles 90035 Realtor can give estimate of price per square feet. Price based on minimum of 3 sold comps within 0.50 miles. Comps need to be similarities. Contact Realtor and give area of interest and can tell estimated price per square foot.
