Where to find an affordable (?) condo or townhouse in the San Fernando Valley
Disappointed by the lack of affordable condos and townhomes out there? And by affordable I mean a 2+ bedroom under $500,000? (I know; that seems like an outrageous price but this is where prices are now.) I took a look through the mls for the San Fernando Valley and here are the areas with the most units available at that price or less: Woodland Hills, Encino, Sherman Oaks. Glendale also has a bunch of units at this price, but isn't technically in the SFV. One of the major price-determining factor, as always, is location, location, location. Walkability to Ventura Boulevard is a huge plus and adds dollars, too. If you are willing to go farther north, or father out, the prices go down. I'm sure I've missed looking some communities, but this is a start.
