What $935,000 buys you in in the city of Los Angeles

In May 2019, the median Single-family home sales price in the City of Los Angeles was at $935,000.   The Median sales price is actually down from its all-time high of $1,025,000 reached this past April.

The median sales price means that half the properties sold for a price below $935,000 and a half sold above.  With 629 single family homes sold in May, you can assume there are about 315 properties in the city of Los Angeles that sold below $935,000. 

A quick search shows 51 single family homes on the market for a price between $925,000 & $950,000.  These properties are spread across a wide swath of the city but in the hottest neighborhoods, you can only find one or two at this price point.


If you have your heart set on a single-family home on the Westside, there is one for sale in Westchester for $939,000. This Westport Heights gem has been lovingly maintained according to the listing agent and has been on the market for 7 days, act fast if you like this property because it is likely to be gone quick.
