A cozy cottage in Beverly Crest or a brand new house in Atwater Village

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various LA 'hoods. We've found five homes within $10,000 of today’s price: $899,000 (because that price sounds so much more affordable than $900,000).

↑This airy treehouse near the Stone Canyon Reservoir is about as close to a starter home as you’re likely to find in the ritzy Beverly Crest area. Featuring two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms, the 1,008-square-foot home sits on a 5,286-square-foot lot, with stairs leading to a garden and a detached office or third bedroom with that half-bath we just mentioned. Asking price is $899,000.

↑Located in historic Harvard Heights, this handsome 1924 Craftsman is looking for an owner who wants to take on a project. The interior of the home looks fairly well maintained but will almost certainly need some maintenance. The 6,716-square-foot lot includes a second dwelling that’s far from move-in ready. Oh, and did we mention this one’s cash only? Asking price is $899,000.

↑This colorful four-bedroom home in Jefferson Park was built in 1925 and retains plenty of cool vintage features, including beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and a tiled staircase with a wrought-iron railing. The Spanish-style home has three bathrooms and 3,380 square feet of living space. It sits on a 7,253-square-foot lot with a good-sized backyard and a three-car garage. Asking price is $900,000.

↑Perhaps you need some help paying the mortgage on a $900,000 property? That’s understandable. Consider then this four-unit building in Lincoln Heights, which includes one vacant apartment with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Rental income from the other three units should help keep those monthly payments manageable. Located in the Lincoln Heights Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, the 4,288-square-foot property is asking $899,000.

↑How about a brand new contemporary home just off Glendale Boulevard in Atwater Village? Two houses in this group of three are currently available. The 1,800-square-foot homes feature three bedrooms and three bathrooms and include skylights, walls of glass, deck space, and a mix of concrete and hardwood floors. Asking price is $899,000.
