both are fairly large areas and encompass nice to very nice neighborhoods. up in the hills are the nicest areas of tarzana and encino, but the flats are also nice as well. south of ventura blvd is the most desirable portion on both areas, but they don't really become sketchy until well north of the 101 (say around victory blvd). as for demographics, the entire southern san fernando valley has a large jewish (and now persian jewish) population. otherwise, from i've seen these two areas are mostly white with young families to old timers who have lived in the valley since the original development in the 40s & 50s.

my observation was that encino and tarzana are some of the more expensive areas of the valley. if you want even more affordable look further west to woodland hills and west hills.

Really, I was looking at rents and prices of homes and condos and it seems a lot cheaper then LA proper.

I am going to be attending Cosmetology school and looking for affordable housing. I just read a thread on here that states that if you're from another state and residing there for more than a year you can qualify for Section 8. I may look into that as well.

the west valley is generally very safe and is very family friendly. it is the last area in the city of LA to have good schools from elementary all the way up to high school. it is also the hottest part of the city and often gets above 100 degrees in the summer, sometimes reaching above 110 degrees.

1.) LAUSD.

2.) Some parts of Tarzana have a LARGE number of group homes for alcoholics and drug addicts.

3.) There are redisdential streets in Tarzana where half the houses have converted the garages to an extra room and also either rent out rooms or rent out guest houses. Lots of renters in some areas, even south of Ventura.

Bottom line, is drive through yourself. Observe the number of cars parked on the street and factor in that its all SFR's.

1> what is LAUSD?

2> The other poster paints this town so much different then you. Making it sound like a nice Jewish Family community. I believe those homes for abuse users are Sober Living Houses not for actual users. That's cool with me.

3> I agree, I will check it out :FURSURE: as the valley girls say ha ha ha
