Shocked in a good way, I hope.

Very different from what it is now.

I moved from the Valley to Houston to escape the problems. Houston, unfortunately, has its share of illegal trespassers. But overall, I am glad I moved away from the Valley.

Its a shame so many good and decent people have left the valley these past 15 to 20 years.

Studio City and Toluca Lake will still be good areas. North Hollywood could improve once the economy improves. (When the expansion of gentrification resumes, its the most likely Valley area to be gentrified.) Valley Village will almost certainly get better once the economy improves as it's still generally a good area (although the posters here indicate some streets have problems even if the area as a whole is good ; would that make Valley Village the Mar Vista of the Valley?) Sherman Oaks could remain a good area (although according to SandyCo there are certain buildings with problems)

As for the rest? There's little hope. Now, if the Red Line had ended at Van Nuys Boulevard rather than Lankershim Boulevard, Van Nuys would be in FAR better shape. As it is, it's only going to get worse. I see the West Valley, even including Woodland Hills, getting more ghetto as time goes on due to its public transportation problems.

SFV is a pretty large area, not all of it going to go in the same direction. The parts of North Hollywood that is close to the metro link station is currently undergoing gentrification. In ten years it will look a lot like Glendale. The light industrial businesses, low income housing that used to be there just get pushed farther out, towards San Fernando. Generally the areas closer to the mountain range dividing The Valley from the non-valley will be doing better.

Sorry to dig up an old thread but it seems like most posters are seeing Tarzana, Encino, S.O. much like Reseda, Panorama or Van Nuys in 10 years?! Is it even worth buying there then? Can't afford the westside where I'm currently renting or hide in the Encino Hills for when 2019 comes :P
-was thinking about buying in Encino, but i'm kinda concerned about how most of you guys see these decent areas in 10 years!

Anything south of Ventura Blvd in the Tarzana, Encino or Stdio City will only improve over the next 10 years. There is no way that 1/2 acre and larger parcels of land in the foothills are in the affordable range of folks who could make it look like Reseda, Panorama City or Van Nuys.

Right, but are those other areas, for example in Encino between Ventura and the 101 Freeway, really going to become like those other bad cities? This scenario would mean that if you can't afford the hills / foothills, you are better off buying in Pacoima for less than half what north of ventura in Encino is worth then!
