The area was largely transformed in the mid-twenties by developer A.W. Ross who sought to create a commercial district comparable to downtown Los Angeles out of a rough road and farmland west of Western avenue. The result was the Miracle Mile which attracted huge commercial interest, making Ross’ venture a resounding success. Since that time, the Miracle Mile has managed to stay relevant for over 80 years.
The Miracle Mile boasts a few high rises and multistory commercial buildings like the Variety building and the Samsung building, but it remains mostly a low rise neighborhood. Many of its apartments, condos and commercial properties remain only a few stories high. The low rise buildings reduce the urban aesthetic and inject a hint of suburbia that is refreshing. Many of the apartments rent for between $2000 to $5000 and some studios go for as little as $1000. Condos and houses in the area average between half a million and $1.5 million dollars.
This is definitely a neighborhood for the trendy urban dweller that likes to be just within reach of everything. The Miracle Mile sparkles with the magic of possibility and excitement. It also has a relatively young demographic which ranges between 20-40 year-olds and the seasonal influx of UCLA students. On an average day you will find strolling couples, joggers, and foodies enjoying their favorite meal or beverage at a local eatery or coffee shop. The historic Wiltern Theater and El Rey Theaters are just minutes apart on the Miracle Mile giving way to a bastion of ethnic and local eateries, offering cuisine from India and Italy to Africa and Korea.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is undoubtedly one of the crown jewels of the Miracle Mile. It houses a number of fine art collections, hosts cultural events year round and is located only seconds from the La Brea tar pits, a naturally occurring phenomenon in Southern California. The famous Peterson Automotive Museum along with LACMA are among the many museums and cultural spots in the neighborhood.
While the Miracle Mile appears mostly untouched by the economic downturn, the neighborhood has seen some changes. It has seen the demise of a few local businesses and many have been replaced with big box commercial venues and franchises. Additionally a number of newer condos are being developed in the area, along with a luxury car dealership. And while many of the changes have been beneficial, there are markedly more commercial, residential and medical office vacancies. The neighborhood has also seen foreclosures on a few of its condos and single family residences. These changes may be a temporary sign, but shrewd buyers and renters may want to remain vigilant in the current bear real estate market.
Overall, the Miracle Mile has remained relatively stable. The area has many factors working in its favor. Its proximity to Hollywood, UCLA and Beverly Hills has helped to keep this a vibrant and economically resilient neighborhood. The La Brea Tar Pits, Museum Row and its numerous entertainment venues also help to keep the Miracle Mile a hot spot for affluent Angelenos, students, and tourists. Its cultural diversity and proximity to many of Los Angeles’ notable neighborhoods make it a desirable location for those who like accessibility and variety.
The racial makeup of the city is a decently rich mix, with Caucasians and Asians being the largest two groups represented, but a healthy mix of many people. And while Rancho Palos Verdes is a decidedly affluent town, with a 2007 estimate of median household income at around $112,00.00 annually, don’t worry – there are plural lovely and affordable condos! (And some that are maybe not so affordable. But still lovely, to be sure.)
The schools of Rancho Palos Verdes are lauded as some of the nation’s best. And that goes for its highly regarded private schools as well as the public Palos Verdes Unified School District as well. The excellent educational institutions of the area greatly increase its desirability for families with school-age children (or those who are planning ahead).
While the city has its own independent government, it uses LAPD and LAFD staffers at its emergency services stations. The former, however, will often find themselves bored in this safe, secure town. Residents are rather used to that type of lifestyle, what with median home prices hovering just under 1.5 million dollars.
But like I said, fear not! We can beat the heck out of that and still give you plural bedrooms and bathrooms! Some wonderful properties for <375k – 625k. Take a look.]]>
The area, which is yet another unincorporated but “census-designated” area of Los Angeles County, gets its name, aptly, from the huge marina that dominates the region. The marina (which is really more than a dozen smaller marinas loosely connected) can dock over 5,000 small to medium sized boats. So if you own a boat or are just a general boating enthusiast, well, this may be a good place for you, captain.
Being so close to the water, it stays nice and cool in Marina del Rey all year round. The temperatures rarely go much above 80 degrees, even in the middle of the summer. With 45 degrees Fahrenheit being about as cold as it ever gets in winter, this is a pretty mild place, really. And a pretty new one, by the way: the area was not fully developed and the harbor not officially active until 1965 (that after decades of false starts, abandoned building projects, etc.).
If sea breezes, beautiful beaches and a laid back lifestyle sounds about right to you, visit us at CondoDomain. Yeah, some of our featured properties here are north of one million dollars, but c’mon… the view baby.]]>
In recent years, much of the city has been very much on the rebound, as it were. From Downtown to South Los Angeles (as it was re-designated to break the stigma of the area’s former name, South Central), Los Angeles is becoming a much safer place to live, to work and to raise a family.
And what does that mean? Well, many things. But for our purposes, it means that for the home hunter who is willing to bet the city’s ascendance will continue, now is the time to buy! Baldwin Hills is a neighborhood of Los Angeles it would be easy enough to overlook. It is tucked to the south of the 10 Freeway and to the east of Culver City. It shares borders with some historically unpleasant areas on its own eastern edge and, as such, is an area many seek to avoid. But this reaction is out of date. Restaurants and shops are cropping up and homes are available. Take a look yourself and see if maybe you can’t picture what this neighborhood could look like in a few years’ time.
Take a look at these stats (as of 10/18/11):
1 BR: Active Listings – 5 • Lowest – $190,000 • Average – $197,200 • Highest – $199,000
2 BR: Active Listings – 8 • Lowest – $269,900 • Average – $308,675 • Highest – $349,000
3 BR: Active Listings – 6 • Lowest – $250,000 • Average – $347,500 • Highest – $389,000

We’re taking a step back from discussing specific regions and the lovely condos they offer again today. Today I am going to tell you about some of the finest markets and shops for those… gourmands among you. If you love to cook and you live in L.A., this article is the one for you. If you hate cooking but live in L.A., maybe forward this to a friend. If you love cooking but live in Macon, GA then maybe when considering your next move… ah forget it.
Los Angeles boasts scores of locations where the foodie set thrives. There are dozens of farmer’s markets, fish markets, vegan only specialty shops, spice stores, etc. Today I am going to brief you on five places, all of which are very different from one another but representative of the wonderful variety of spots available the Angeleno who is a real food lover (see, that works too!).
Farmer’s Market – “The Original”
Humble? No. Excellent? Pretty much. The Farmer’s Market at Third and Fairfax is open every day, offers all sorts of crazy-good fresh food and boasts extras that really none of L.A.’s other markets can, what with its permanence. There are prepared food vendors spread out among those selling fresh foodstuffs, so you can fill up as you stock up. You can even grab a drink at one of the two fine bars there! Or just get your arugula and saffron and off you go.
The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills
Hey, are you way into cheese? Like… really into it? Like $70 platter of assorted goat cheeses sounds totally fine with you? Then welcome home, mon amí! Or… something that makes sense in French. From caviar to charcuterie to spreads and crackers and – you guessed it – lots and lots of fine cheeses, if you’ve got the pocketbook for it, this is the place to get cheese in L.A.
Passing through the up and coming and ever so hip neighborhood of Silver Lake? Say, while you’re here, you should stock up on lemon pepper and coriander and sugars in colors and varieties you did not know existed. And much, much more. The Spice Station is basically unbeatable if you want the obscure, the extreme… the… spiciest? And you can buy as much or as little as you want, so it’s perfect for that oddball ingredient you need for that rub you are making without leaving you the proud owner of a useless ounce of blanched paprika (no, that does not make sense). (They also have a Santa Monica location FYI!)
This excellent market in the Venice neighborhood boasts all the right foodstuffs, will happily deliver to your location and offers catering services and gift baskets to boot. You know what this market looks like and offers – it is what you picture when someone says “gourmet market.” So if that’s your thing, come on by! Or rather head on over there… don’t come by here, I’m busy.
The Oaks Gourmet
If you’re a Hollywood denizen (or just passing through), you owe it to yourself and your taste buds to check this place out. It’s newer, barely two years old, but excellent indeed. The cheese and wine selection alone are reason enough to visit. Ditto the coffee and pastries. And, y’know, everything about it, really. There’s chocolate like you read about (um… like you just did… 2 seconds ago), prepared food, etc. Just take a look at their website and then head on over.
Beautiful, breezy Santa Monica is one of the most famous, iconic cities in Southern California. Arguably, it is one of the most famous cities in America: its name has been featured in songs, images of its beaches and beloved pier are plastered across postcards and it has served as backdrop to countless films and television shows. And not only is its iconic status richly deserved, but richly storied.
Santa Monica has boasted permanent residents since time immemorial, with westerners first settling the area in the second half of the 18th Century. It was officially incorporated as a city in December of 1886. According to the 2010 United States census, there are approximately 90,000 people who call the city home. This number surged in the late 20th century, as the town’s center gentrified and people flocked to the area.
At only eight and a half square miles in area, the city has an outsized reputation; one by which visitors will not be let down. There is never a shortage of things to do and sights to see. There are myriad focal points in this beach community, with perhaps the three most notable being The Santa Monica Pier, the Third Street Promenade and the beach itself.
The Santa Monica Pier is just over one hundred years old. Over its long history, it has been the site of a grand ballroom, a permanent carnival, Ferris wheels and roller coasters. Today the pier maintains its carnival atmosphere, still featuring newer versions of the aforementioned rides, an arcade, various games and a plethora of food stands. The pier itself has been featured in numerous works of cinema and TV.
The Third Street Promenade is essentially a giant, outdoor shopping mall. Several blocks of Third Street – just a short distance from the Pacific Ocean – have been permanently blocked off to create ample space for visitors to stroll, window shop or pause for coffee or a bite to eat. Street performers mingle with tourists and locals up and down the three block stretch of the Promenade, which at its southern end leads into an indoor shopping mall.
The beach itself needs little in the way of explanation. Sandwiched between Venice Beach to the south and Pacific Palisades and Malibu to the north, the beaches of Santa Monica are much flatter and wider than much of the Pacific coast line, creating a perfect place for sunbathers, volleyball players and more to congregate. The long concrete path that runs the length of Santa Monica’s beaches (and beyond) is busy at all hours with joggers, bicyclists and casual strollers, taking in the sea breeze or sunset. Easy to do, with the cities more than three hundred sunny days a year and mild climate.
The city has its own dedicated police and fire departments, hospitals, school system and even an airport (though it serves private craft almost exclusively). Various businesses and film production companies have their headquarters located in Santa Monica, as well as notable private citizens, such as producer/comedian Larry David, actor Sean Penn and architect Frank Gehry (who, in fact, designed the indoor mall adjacent to the Third Street Promenade).
But what you want to know about are the homes, I know. I was just trying to whet your appetite a bit! I’ll assume that was a success and that you now must move here to be happy. Good news / bad news time. Let’s to the bad first: the houses are expensive. The good news? Ah, you saw it coming. Santa Monica condos are well priced and lovely!
Take a gander (yes, gander):
(Photo of 2726 Montana Ave Listed by Yan Yan Zhang)
1020 19th Street – $625,000
2726 Montana Avenue – $1,090,000
619 Euclid Street – $2,999,999

Did you know, for example, that El Monte is a fully incorporated city in the central-eastern part of L.A. (in the San Gabriel Valley, for those in the know)? Or that it is home to well over 100,000 residents? Or that in the 18th century Spanish settlers, missionaries and soldiers frequented the area? And were you aware that next year, 2012, marks the centennial of the founding of El Monte?
If you didn’t know any of that, I forgive you. You also probably didn’t know that there are dozens of 3 bedroom condos available there for under $250k. And 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condos for around $150 thousand. That’s right: scarcely 10 miles down the 10 Freeway from Downtown is a city just begging for you to take a look (and then stake a claim… this is the historic “End of the Santa Fe Trail,” after all!).
Take a look at these three homes, in ascending order of size, price and amenities, and then tell me where else around here you can find that kind of value! (What? Oh… right… in many of your past articles. Well, just doin’ my job, then.)
Just over $300k…
