EAGLE ROCK — L.A. was just ranked the second least-affordable housing market in the U.S. for middle class buyers, behind only San Francisco. New York has even tipped its hat at us and muttered “Good Luck” under its breath to prospective L.A. buyers. So with that news in mind, we wondered what will putting down a large chunk of change get you in Eagle Rock? Here’s what about $700,00 buys in the neighborhood Redfin called the “second hottest of 2014.”
A lovely Craftsman which melds charm and upgrades. Though the backyard may need some TLC, a large patio is set for summer entertaining.
An inviting front porch leads into this wonderfully spotless home. Though reasonably appointed, this Craftman may be calling for updates in a couple years time.
Just down the street from the above property, sits this three-bedroom bungalow. This recently updated home boats a pool and character accents like built-ins and exposed beams.
