Those prices are too high for a decent neighborhood anywhere, and for those who think it isn't, you need to get out of California for awhile and see what is really out there.

Van Nuys is a very nice city to live in. There are areas with immigrants in the city which are very nice.

NO way they are going to offer units under 150k....and if they did, ppl still wouldn't be able to afford them, and the ppl who could would be the ppl who don't even live there or shop at those surrounding stores.

JMO though...we'll see. I went to the Walmart recently a few times...to visit someone...and it looked sooooooo much better. NOT!
That mall is a mess...the mall I went to in Mexico last month looked better.

LOL I have to comment on this.. the malls in the ghettos here people always call them "little mexico" but all the malls I've been to in Mexico (Juarez, Monterrey, Morelia) were EXTREMELY clean and nice ..

Much better off in Studio City/Sherman Oaks/ Encino. Better off South of Ventura. Burbank is still basically good/Toluca Lake.

Van Nuys has become a hot bed for gang activity. Not at all what it once was back in the day.

Default Van Nuys

I have lived in Van Nuys for about 5 years now, yes there are some areas that are dicey, but overall its a very safe place. And yes I live around Kester and Kittiridge (west of Kester) in a very quiet calm and safe Neighborhood. In fact many people in my apartment complex leave their doors unlocked (though you have to go through a locked gate to get inside the complex) and never had a problem. Though I will not tell you the exact address, thereby spoiling this little piece of paradise, I will tell you ITs off a dead end street with mostly medium to small size houses on it (and almost all are well kept) and no couches on the curb either with just a few apartment buildings which may be the reason why it is so safe. And usually After 11PM and YES even on friday and sat. nights the area is quiet and peacefull, except for the occasional loud car stereo. If your planning to move to Van Nuys ignore the naysayers you can find great deals here in great Neighborhoods, if you just look around. Because people like to judge this place it garners a certian unjustified image which just allows better deals for you!

I doubt an update would come any time soon. The cost to drive around the whole country again would cost quite a bit of money.
