The tax rate is very different from an appraisal. If you want to know the value of your property, it would be a good idea to contact a local Realtor who can stop by and run a CMA for you. Our estimates of value include our market knowledge,so they are very good. Most local Realtors will provide this information to you at no charge. ... more

Hi JC,
Good question. Actually, the inventory in this area is not that high. There are many home buyers that are interested to move to that area, because prices are a little lower than north of Santa Monica. This area is very residential, quiet, and is within the walking distance from the Westwood charter school which is very good. Many families with children or young couples that want to start a family want to live in the area for that reason. In addition, this area is close to UCLA, Century City shopping mall, and many restaurants. It is a safe area for single people as well as families with children. I have been living in this area myself and I love living here.

Hello and nice to meet you.

I would be happy to send you a list of rentals that match what you are looking for. You can also try Westside Rentals and Craigslist just be cautious with all of the scams that are going on with rentals.

There are a few 2 beds, 2 bathroom units off of Sunset and Sepulveda that I can send you.

Take Care,

The Westholme, built in 1976,so you can expect they may need some work. As far as I know there is nothing wrong with the building.

Beverly Glen is best south of Wilshire, or North of Mullholland. Lots of great condo complexes and its really not that bad pulling in and out of the underground parking lots either. Consistent traffic but no worse than any other street in Los Angeles. Have a wonderful rest of the day and know that I'm here to help should you need my assistance!

Hello Serhan

It's the same process as if you were buying a traditional home for sale, all it means is that the home is either Bank Owned, in default, or an auction property (typically bank owned homes are auctioned when they don't sell on the traditional market). Have a wonderful rest of the day and know that I'm here to help should you need my assistance!

Love2bspoiled, I'm not sure where you get you info from? I did a search and the most recent condo in Westwood that sold around that price was a bachelor pad, not even one bedroom that sold for $230,000 in 2009. Maybe you are confused with city limits. There have been condos that have sold, not too long ago around $250,000 on Wilshire, but in Los Angeles. You specifically said Westwood and there is a huge difference from parts of LA and Westwood. What was the address of the property you mentioned? I'll look it up for you. I still feel that you are grasping for straws. Good luck. ... more

All great answers. I would make sure that the building has a strong and committed Home Owners Association and that building maintenance is a priority.

Hi Katherin,
The best thing to do is to establish a working relationship with a buyer agent. Once you have that, your agent will find property for you that meets the criteria you have.

Richard Schulman answered:

Others have given some good answers but just thought I'd add another piece of info and let you know that this is an apartment conversion that happened a few years ago, where they converted apartments into condominiums and revamped the units and the entire complex. It already was one of the "hot" spots for UCLA students to live, and it continues to be.

And to clarify on what another contributor said, this is not directly on fraternity row. The majority of the complexes on this particular street are apartment buildings. The fraternity houses, are nearby though. It is also one of the closer buildings to Downtown Westwood (which is nice, since it is an easy walk into town), and still very close to walk into campus too.

My office is located in Westwood, very close to this building, and I am highly familiar with this area. Feel free to contact me for more information or to discuss the market in this area.
