Santa Monica isn't really known for affordability—unless you happened to score an incredible rent controlled apartment way back when. In fact, home prices in the city are among the highest in the nation. Still, it's not like there aren't a few (sort of) reasonably-priced residences out there, particularly in the condo market. With that optimistic thought in mind, the folks at NeighborhoodX set out to find the 10 most affordable properties in Santa Monica. Turns out, they're all under $750,000. Not bad, right? Okay, bad compared with most of the world, but still. Let's check out the properties!
