Looks like the big rally occurred for West Adams and now it has already gotten quite expensive. Inglewood looks to be rising the fastest in that $500k-$600k range housing.

Probably best to start buying in Watts before it gets hot . As long as gentrification and prices keep going up seem it’s a matter of time .

Also East L.A

I'd like to see Watts gentrified. It was gentrified way back when Simon Rodia built the Watts Towers, so gentrifying it would make it as it once was.

It’s very heavily Section 8 Housing. Landlords have little incentive to improve it with a steady income stream coming in.

I think that Watts was a poor area even when Simon Rodia was there. When you say that it was gentrified are you meaning there were more white people?

I don’t know for everyone else but I think $500k $600k is a reasonable entry point in Los Angeles when houses across the freeway are going for $1 million plus. Inglewood has the fastest trajectory of the area I looked up. Hawthorne is also an interesting area.

West Adams just took off. Now it’s $1 million for entry and I think their schools are bad so who would have thought... location is the key factor

Yeah there have been people moving there . Like you said the “Silicon beach” area as it’s called now borders Inglewood .
That area looks to be $1.5 million or more for a modest house.

I’d say you could find nicer neighborhoods in the valley for the same or less than south la or Inglewood but the commute would be worse .

South la is a big area though and the neighborhoods vary a lot of course nicer ones will be more expensive .

This isn’t really a new thing about people buying there it’s just with prices at record highs now and the new development happening and planned for the area more and more people are considering moving there .

Its stiil gonna take a TON of middle class people daring enough to buy over there. Many folks who have been apart of generational poverty still ive there when the houses cost 100k. There is is still a significant gang prescence, schools are awful, and as I've mentioned before, the apartments in the area tend to have very low standards. People with 750 credit scores making 60K + will probably look to nicer areas.

I do like the fact that higher class of citizens are filling up the area, I'd just rather already live in an area that's good to go. If I still have to ask "is this a red or blue area", that's a problem to me

Are there still gangs? I really don't think gangs have much if any presence in that area these days... people would have said the same thing about West Adams area which is now $1 million, and Normandie area near USC. It's gotten expensive even though people were always hesitant because of the types of poverty and poor in the area. People also still buy in eastern area of Westchester where the schools are terrible but the houses are a million plus. The rich folks put their kids in private school I think or charter schools.
