Santa Monica Real Estate
Heading west of Los Angeles nestled along the Pacific Ocean just south of Pacific Palisades and north of Venice Beach, you’ll find the buzzing city of Santa Monica. This spot started as a resort town in the early 20th century and still largely depends on the tourism industry.
One of the major draws of Santa Monica for residents and tourists alike is the Santa Monica Pier. The pier includes various dining establishments, an amusement park, an aquarium, a trapeze school, fishing and an ocean front walk. But for those looking for a bit more culture, Santa Monica boasts over 75 museums and galleries, and includes an abundance of public art, concert series and live events.
Santa Monica not only offers a laid-back lifestyle outside of the more upscale neighborhoods like Beverly Hills and Bel Air, but its home prices come in much lower than its neighbors. The median home price in Santa Monica is a reasonable $1.4M, a much more feasible budget for many home owners. There’s also nothing like living a stone’s throw from the Pacific Ocean, is there?!
