Five - ten years ago I would have said the Santa Clarita Valley was the most up and coming area in LA County. Homes were being built by the thousands. There's still thousands on the drawing boards, but the big developers are all bankrupt or cutting way back on build-outs. Today, LA county, in general, is suffering with high unemployment and lots of home foreclosures.

Most "up" might be Altadena
Most "coming"? That's a tough one. How about Van Nuys, Chatsworth, or Canoga Park?

I get it. Ugh. I'd include a certain mansion in Holmby Hills, but I truly doubt the old man's vitality in that respect.

South Long Beach...90802. Three new art galleries opened up on Alamitos Ave between 4th and 7th street. MOLAA is also there...ton of hipsters on 4th street.

For those that Silverlake is "up and coming" WRONG! It's already UP, UP...look at all home prices there. Silver Lake has a ton of artsy people but it is in no way "up and coming" it's THERE!

Read that article. If a starving artist can't afford to live there, then the neighborhood is UP!

Good luck.

North East LA seems to be the most up and coming area.

Atwater Village

Highland Park

Cypress Park

I consider Echo Park, Mt. Washington, and Glassell Park to be already up and coming despite their flaws.

Downtown LA is another interesting area because the condos/lofts have dropped in price a lot and there's currently a lot of inventory so it's a good time to consider buying if you enjoy downtown living. Just do your research on the condo developers & builders.

Speaking of Echo Park, I was just down there for a project on gentrification:

I think Los Feliz and Silverlake have already been gentrified for the most part. To find anything really rundown and cheap, you'd have to look at the very fringes.
