Westchester Los Angeles real estate has experienced a boom in new development in the last several years. This is mainly due to the inundation of tech companies in Playa Vista as the Silicon Beach phenomena in West Los Angeles has spread. Westchester is bordered by Playa Vista and Culver City on the north, El Segundo on the south and Playa del Rey on the west. Westchester is known for its convenience to the airport, property values, and growing economy. Residents enjoy shopping on the Promenade at the Howard Hughes Center, where a new upscale overhaul is set to be complete in 2018.
DISCOVER WESTCHESTER REAL ESTATE
Westchester real estate has seen a 25% increase in housing prices over the last two years since 2015. This has to do with technology companies that have moved into the area. Westchester was one of the last communities to feel the surge as Santa Monica, Venice, and Marina Del Rey felt this boom much earlier. This just means that you will get more house for your money, but that might not last for much longer as demand is strong for homes in Westchester!
