What does "good" mean?

What is your budget?

What type of house?

Are schools critical?

Where is your job located?


Here's a zip code map:

I thought the whole of woodland hills is a good area... as far as safety and a good school system is concerned, and good for children? Am i wrong? is it just certain areas? if so which areas should be avoided and which are more desirable?

I grew up in the West Valley and am quite familiar with Woodland Hills.

In general, the entire area is very desirable, safe, etc. However, I would say that areas "South of the Boulevard" (this is a reference to Ventura Blvd) are considered the most exclusive.

That said, it all comes down to price and what kind of a deal you can find (be it south or north of the Blvd). I'd say find a GOOD real estate broker/agent who knows the area well. I've never met a broker who doesn't think it's a good time to BUY....so choose wisely. Interview several.

South of Ventura is always nice. However, if you have children who are of high school age you will be better suited to move to the area in El Camino Real High school district and not Taft high school. El Camino is pretty much the only LAUSD school that is still more than half white (its 55% white). Taft is majority hispanic now and also have large black population as well. Many Taft students live in South LA, Canoga Park, and Tarzana. Almost all of El Camino's students live in Woodland Hills, Calabasas and West Hills. El Camino consistently out performs all other LAUSD high schools.

I can't think of too many neighborhoods near Woodland Hills with new homes. Use the power of redfin to filter by year, for example, after 1995 or so. There are newer homes in Thousand Oaks, late 1990s, early 2000s. Also Simi Valley, maybe some parts of West Hills, west of Valley Circle (probably above $400K though).

Here's a visualization of homes newer than 1990, $350K-$500K, SFR, min BR = 3:
