Small-town friendliness and cosmopolitan amenities make Culver City one of the most desirable places to live in Los Angeles. A thriving arts district and newly revitalized downtown attract people from all over LA, while its cinematic past as the site of legendary film studios like MGM gives it a character that few places can match. This unique blend of nostalgia and modernity makes it irresistible to those looking for a place to call home.
And that’s not even mentioning the lush parks, walkable streets, free downtown parking, and energy-efficient homes that the city is known for. World-class public services and a dedicated school system ensure that residents have few reasons to leave.
Culver City residential real estate maintained its value throughout the housing crisis, and LA’s recovery from the downturn seems to have begun here. Inventory is low and homes usually sell quickly. The housing stock is comprised of single-family homes, townhomes, and condos. Spanish Colonial Revival, mid-century modern, and Storybook (a style inspired by fairy tale homes), are some of the most distinctive architectural styles. A renowned example of Storybook architecture in the city is a cluster of residences at Dunn Drive called the “Hobbit House.” Single-family homes usually have three bedrooms or more, along with landscaped yards and covered patios. Hardwood flooring, vaulted ceilings, and walk-in closets are common features. The local government offers informative workshops, rebates, and other incentives to draw residents’ attention to the Energy Upgrade California program and encourage them to renovate their homes with green technologies. There is no rent control in Culver City – those who purchase multi-family properties and/or condos with the intention of turning them into income properties have the upper hand when it comes to price increases and evictions.
