↑ This classic 1950s ranch home in Reseda has been thoroughly overhauled since it last sold earlier this year (for $490,000). Sporting an updated kitchen, updated bathrooms, and new windows and floors, the property has five bedrooms and three bathrooms spread across a main residence and a guest house. The home has 2,000 square feet of living space and sits on a 9,740-square-foot lot with a grassy lawn and a two-car garage. Asking price is $675,000.

↑ This unique Long Beach unit is located in the Ebell Theatre Lofts, a handsome Spanish-style movie house converted to condos in 2005. The roomy 1,545-square-foot unit has one bedroom and one bathroom, along with an office space and an open living area. The condo has concrete floors, 20-foot ceilings, a private patio, and a loft space accessible by spiral staircase. Building amenities include a gym and parking. Asking price is $675,500, with HOA dues of $544 per month.

↑ This stately 1905 residence in Westlake has clearly been updated over the years, but it retains nice design features like coved ceilings and a bay window in the living room. We also wouldn’t be too surprised if you found some nice hardwood floors under that carpeting on the lower level. The house has four bedrooms and 1.5 baths spread across 2,128 square feet of living space. Sitting on a lot less than 3,000 square feet in size, the gated property doesn’t have much in terms of a yard—but it does have a rare California basement. Asking price is $679,000.

↑ This Marina del Rey condo is just a block from the harbor and offers some excellent views of West LA and the newly revamped Oxford Basin. Inside it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with 1,422 square feet of living space. Features include wood floors, walls of glass, and easy access to private balconies. The complex, Marina City Club, has a long list of amenities, like a gym, tennis courts, and multiple swimming pools. Asking price is $675,000, but the HOA dues certainly aren’t cheap; they’ll cost you $932 per month.

↑ Here’s a little house in Glendale that has plenty of potential for an update but also looks pretty homey already. Sitting on a 4,009-square-foot lot at the base of the Verdugos, the 915-square-foot house has two bedrooms and one bathroom. Built in 1955, it’s got wood floors, vintage bathroom tile, and a brick fireplace in the living room. Asking price is $675,000.
