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: $400,000.
Here’s a nice one-bedroom in Glendale just a few blocks from Brand Boulevard. The building was constructed in the 1970s, but the condo has been updated with new flooring, lighting, and a renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Featuring 774 square feet of living space, it opens to a very large private patio that wraps around the unit. Asking price is $399,000, with HOA dues of just $200 per month.
How about a freestanding home in Long Beach? This one is admittedly tiny (it’s got just 576 square feet of living space), but has two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a freshly updated kitchen. Built in 1919, the little home sits on a grassy, 2,709-square-foot lot with a detached garage. Asking price is $397,000.
Here’s another space on the small side—this one in the Tokyo Villa building in Little Tokyo. It’s got one bedroom and one bathroom spread across 579 square feet of living space, with a very handy in-unit washer and dryer. Building amenities include a landscaped garden, a fitness center, a hot tub, and a sauna. Asking price is $410,000, with HOA dues of $359 per month.
Here’s a condo in Pasadena with one bedroom and one bathroom spread across 719 square feet of floor space. Interior features include a large bedroom and an open living space that opens to a private balcony. Building amenities include a swimming pool, hot tub, fitness room, and barbecue area. Asking price is $395,000, with HOA dues of $379 per month.
We’re really digging the 1970s script style used to label this Woodland Hills condo complex as Warner West. The unit itself isn’t so bad either—it’s got two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with 883 square feet of floor space. Glass sliding doors in the living room open to a balcony overlooking the courtyard and swimming pool. The building also includes a spa, tennis court, and sauna. Asking price is $395,000, with HOA dues of $319 per month.
