Hi, first post here. I am almost through with residency and about to become surgeon and was wondering if anybody knew of any doctors that live in Malibu? My salary will be about $600,000 a year. I'm not talking about affording a $7 million house on Pacific Coast highway, but a decent sized house for raising a family. If not, what are the parts of L.A. that doctors tend to reside in? Thanks

Sure, there are plenty of homes for under $2M in Malibu that would offer enough space for raising a family. As long as you save up a decent down payment, you should be able to afford it. You can get more for your money in the Valley, but if you want to live in Malibu it's doable.

it depends on what hospital & medical group you'll be practicing out of. Many high-income earners with steady day-to-day jobs like doctors and attorneys opt not to live way out in Malibu because when PCH is closed (due to flooding, mudslides, rock slides, or fire) it adds an extra hour and a half to your commute as you have to loop around from the other side of the Santa Monica Mountains.

600k / year sounds a bit high for starting salary for a surgeon, but let's assume its that. To me, it seems to live comfortably in Malibu requires being in a higher bracket than upper middle class.. An executive VP at a company I worked for lived there and he was 5.5M / year...

it must be true because no one exaggerates on the Internet.

If a surgeon making 600k can't live there then who can live at these places? I figure if you make 600k a year you will be able to live almost anywhere in 5-10 years.
