We’re exploring options in Sherman Oaks, Westwood, Altadena, Long Beach, and Van Nuys

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 and condos within $10,000 of today’s price: $750,000.

We’ll start things off with this two-bedroom home in Sherman Oaks. Built in 1955, it’s got hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, a classic midcentury kitchen, and sliding glass doors that lead to the backyard swimming pool and a pergola-shaded patio. The house has 1,692 square feet of living space and sits on a 5,700-square-foot lot with a carport framed by its jauntily sloping roofline. Asking price is $760,000.

Asking price is $750,000, with HOA dues of $638 per month.
