The NY Times had an article about 6 months ago that said over a 30 year period, home ownership may result in a slight decrease in wealth versus renting for the same 30 year period. Add in the stress and headaches with home ownership maintenance and ask yourself is it really worth it.

If you have a few kids and want good schools, maybe it is.

If you have kids and want good schools renting would clearly be the better option. The higher cost of buying would be more likely to put someone in a worse neighborhood with worse schools.

YES YES YES! I used to live in the Valley and there was something very perverted about the men there. Maybe it is due to the porn industry operating heavily out of the SFV, not sure. But the men treated me as I was a willing potential sex partner everywhere I went. Even to the point of getting leering gazes from men in their cars as they pulled up next to me. It was disgusting. If you said hello to anyone they acted like it was an invitation to screw. AND the people are volatile and rude. EVERY SINGLE TIME I got to the valley I see/hear someone screaming at a customer service rep or waitress or someone. Always someone somewhere screaming "You don't know who your f*cking with". They ALL think they are some one you don't dare mess with, like they are the President of Capitol Records or something…..like they have control over your entire existence at the drop of a hat. So pathetic. I guess they are trying to make up for the fact that they can afford to live on the west side.

Woodland Hills is Little Middle East? I thought the Persians focused primarily on Tarzana, secondarily on Encino.

I thought Woodland Hills was mostly a boring, whitebread suburban culture. A sort of Brady Bunch holdover. A time warp of what L.A. had been in the 1970s.
