What $2 Million will get you in these Los Angeles neighborhoods

The property market is on fire in Los Angeles. There is a particularly high demand for homes that around the $2M range, which is astonishing considering the median listing price of a house in US is only $279,000! (June 2018). So what exactly does $2M get you?


Beverly Hills  

2,141 sqft. 3 bd/2.5 ba, lot size: 0.36 acres. $1,799,000. 

This BH ranch style home is located in the Benedict Canyon neighborhood. It is very quaint and small compared to the 90210 homes that come to mind which are often at least 6000 square feet and start at around $7M. While it may need a lot of remodeling or possible tear-down, this home is surprisingly a steal at this price. The large lot size isn't completely usable however, as the majority of land is on a slope and likely difficult to build on.
