That's not really true at all. I mean, maybe in general, but Long Beach is cheap as hell. That's where I'm about to move to (from Downtown), going to look at places on Tuesday. You can find plenty of small condos not far from the beach, within 10 blocks anyway (and plenty within 4-6), for $100,000 to $125,000.

I was surprised how cheap Long Beach is compared to most every other place in the Greater L.A. area. The only place cheaper is Canoga Park, basically.

It's cheaper because:
1) Downtown isn't too far removed from being a cesspool
2) The beach in LB sucks(or is non-existent, like DT)
3) People have an odd fixation with name - LB isn't "Venice" or "Santa Monica" or "on the West Side with a 310 area code[though it used to be 310]"

Move down into Naples or Seal and the prices go up dramatically
