Last issue, I presented you with six great properties meant to give you a broad idea of what you could buy for $1,000,000 in various areas of Los Angeles. As you could tell, you can do pretty darn well with that kind of money. But what if you’re not quite in that price range? What if you top out at, say, $750,000? Well, let’s go for a spin and see what that’ll get you. Like I said last time, let’s assume that everything’s at least somewhat negotiable!

17110 Nanette St.
4br/2ba in 2,077 sq. ft. on an 11,840 sq. ft. lot
Affordable architecture! 1964 classic Joseph Eichler residence by architect Claude Oakland exemplifies Oakland’s social concern of building better living for those without the pocketbook of the very wealthy. Here in the Balboa Highlands, Eichler built one of his now-historic modern neighborhoods. This is a classic, stunning mid-century modern beauty!
These are just a few great examples of what $750,000 will do for you. It’s not the same as a million, but there’s an upside to this price range. Depending on several things, you can get into one of these houses for as little as 3.5 percent down payment. With interest rates at all-time lows, now is definitely a great time to consider getting into the market! If you like anything you see here, feel free to give me a call. I’m here to help! Next week, we’re gonna take it down another notch, and see what kind of good stuff you can get for $500,000 and under. And believe me, there’s plenty!
