The Canyon Country area of Santa Clarita does not have a lot of Mello Roos (also called CFD which is short for Community Facilities District but basically the same thing) except in some of the newer construction areas. And it varies based on age of the covered home as well as its square footage. The best option is to have a real estate professional check the records specific to an individual home of interest. ... more

Hello potential Renter...This appears to be a pretty safe area. But you need to do your own investigation. Contact the local police department and ask about incidences in the area..You can also go to and put in the address.

Good luck with your search..

I have lived in both and enjoy each. Thousand Oaks has more moderate weather but is a little quieter. For some reason good restaurants are harder to find. Has a great Parks and Rec system.

Woodland Hills is nice because there are more restaurants and good school districts but it is regularly over 100* in August and Sept.

Can't go wrong with either one unless you hate the heat.

If you need help let me know.

If you are taking the 405 to the 101, it'd be the Tarzana/Encino area.

If you are taking PCH to Las Virgines Rd/Malibu Canyon Rd to the 101, then it'd be Eastern Malibu between the Malibu Pier & Carbon Canyon Rd. ... more

Much depends on what you are asking. It is impossible to state a definite travel time. There are many factors with rush hour traffic, etc. However, if you are asking how far in miles, it is about 12 miles if you go north and connect to the 134 freeway.

If you need help with real estate, please call or send an email.

Hi Alison,

I'm not sure exactly what areas you travel to the most frequently, but I have had great experiences with the Metro. The new Expo line has been such a time saver for me as well as a fun way to sight see, attend events and not have to park.

"The Metro Expo Line connects the Westside by rail to Downtown LA, Hollywood, the South Bay, Long Beach, Pasadena and dozens of points in between. With 10 new stations serving USC, Expo Park, and diverse LA neighborhoods such as Culver City, the Crenshaw District and Downtown LA, the Metro Rail system will expand to 80 stations and over 87 miles of rail to destinations across LA County."

Woodland Hills is okay too, you can go right over Topanga Canyon to get to Santa Monica. Your gonna hit traffic either way, might as well make it a beautiful drive.

It depends on whether you are speaking about the commute from 6:30 - 9AM during rush hour which can take about 1 hour and 15 minutes or 9 AM - 3PM which could take about 40 minutes. Let me know if you would like to learn more about alternative means of driving or comuting.

Cricket Yee answered:
Hi Lost, I remember you! I think anywhere along the Metro Red Line should work for you. The MetroLink (from Chatsworth or Northridge) is a bit more expensive and less frequent as I understood it. So that means Studio City or Sherman Oaks should work for you. I live in North Hollywood, and I don't know what smog and congestion they are talking about-- it's not worse than anywhere else in the Valley.

Santa Clarita has its bus system which travels from various areas in Los Angeles to and from Santa Clarita and its surrounding areas. It also connects with the MetroLink line as well. I would check either the City of Santa Clarita ( and the Metro ( websites for more information.

I hope that helps.

Jane Peters answered:
One thing is for sure, the 405 South coming down to UCLA in the morning is a nightmare and the 101 (Ventura Freeway) is classified as the busiest in the world. That would not be a stress-free commute. Later at night it would not be such a problem. The better commute would be against traffic, i.e. South to North. Given that somewhere in the San Fernando Valley, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Encino might be a compromise as it is more or less half way, but then you deal with the heat in the summer. It also depends on your budget. The Valley is less expensive than the Westside of Los Angeles. It certainly is not the wrong time to buy right now, but no one has a crystal ball as to what prices will be in 3 years. If you are thinking of only staying three years then you might consider renting. You have some tough choices. ... more

Hello Azucenas,

That's a tough one. I'm thinking an hour but to know for sure you should take the drive. You are better off avoiding the 405 as they are going to be working on it the next two years.

Hello Michellezh,

I think you are probably looking at 1 hour to 1.15 minutes. I tried doing PCH to Agoura Hills and that might be an option but PCH can be unpredictable.
