First-Time Home Buyers Head To Highland Park


I’ve talked to a lot of first-time  home buyers lately who want to focus their search in the Eagle Rock and Highland Park neighborhoods. The reason is simple: you get more for your money than you do in areas such as Silver Lake, Los Feliz and Echo Park. And for first-time buyers on a tight budget, it’s important to save wherever possible.

To further illustrate the allure of Highland Park check out the three listings below – in the aforementioned neighborhoods you could tack on an extra $50-$100k, but in Highland Park these are realistic options for first-time home buyers.


6142 Springvale Dr
Los Angeles, CA 90042

3 BR, 1 BA

No this isn’t a new bettershelter listing. I guess you could call it a….tribute? Regardless, it’s very nicely done and sure to attract a lot of interest.

514 Oleander Dr
Los Angeles, CA 90042

3 BR, 1 BA

Loved this charming cottage when I saw it the other day. Great front yard, cozy living room, lots of early century character and located in a great part of the neighborhood.

400 San Pascual
Los Angeles, CA 90042

2 BR, 1 BA

It would be very easy to move right into this turn-key Spanish home. Located on a  surprisingly quiet corner lot, you get a nice front yard, large living/dining room, and a two bonus rooms attached to the garage in addition to two nice-sized bedrooms. Great starter home.
