• East LA: Duplex located near freeways, shops and downtown. Each unit includes 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Now asking $598,000.

• El Sereno: Each unit features 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, an open concept kitchen, a laundry room, parking, and a backyard that offers mountain views. Now asking $595,000.

• Echo Park/Westlake: Two story apartment with each unit consisting of 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, and is separately metered. Now asking $599,000.
