Santa Monica is an extremely popular city with much to offer in terms of what most people look for. The great weather, beaches, schools, shopping, dining and entertainment are all things that continue to bring new residents to Santa Monica. The future prospects of real estate in Santa Monica look very good for the current property owners and those soon to be.

Santa Monica real estate is some of the most diverse real estate found in the City of Los Angeles. The “North of Montana” area primarily consists of multi-million dollar homes on mature streets surrounded by great shopping, and schools with some of the highest test scores in the state. While the Ocean Park area is a diverse area with a long history of beach culture and eclectic shopping. This area still has some affordable homes which give opportunity to first time buyers.

The overall mix of property in Santa Monica is everything from estate homes, to traditional single family residences, and condominiums.

Santa Monica is known worldwide to many people because of the rich and famous who live, visit, work and play within the city limits. Additionally, Santa Monica Courthouse has been home to many famous legal proceedings over the years. While it is known worldwide for some of the items mentioned above, one of the reason it brings so many new residents each year are the schools. The Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District is a nationally recognized school system which covers all of Santa Monica and Malibu. The District has long been a pioneer in educational reform, and the students test scores consistently confirm this. The Academic Performance Index (API) growth report shows that all of the schools within the district have API scores above 800. Additionally, more than 90% of the students who graduate high school from the District, go on and continue their education either at universities or other higher learning institutions.

In addition to the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District, Santa Monica College (SMC) is the leader among California’s 106 community colleges in transferring students into the Univeristy of California school system.

WHY SANTA MONICA REAL ESTATE

2007 Median Prices (Active Homes)

• Santa Monica Homes For Sale- $1,497,000
• Santa Monica Condos For Sale- $799,000

2007 Entry Level Prices

• Condos For Sale - $375,000
• Homes For Sale - $600,000
Some of the benefits of owning real estate in Santa Monica are its proximity to the Ocean, nationally recognized schools, strong job base, and a well educated and wealthy population. Santa Monica is also known worldwide as a city with great weather, shopping and entertainment. Since the laws of supply and demand drive real estate prices as they do any other product, Santa Monica prices will continue to increase because it is a city with much to offer to property buyers, and is land locked with no room for further growth. Santa Monica’s location does not have the space to allow for the addition of new housing units to curb demand, therefore prices increase.

Santa Monica has many draws which make it so attractive to prospective buyers looking to purchase a home. Santa Monica can offer a wonderful location with 147 clear days a year and annual precipitation of just over 13 inches according to Money Magazines Best Places to Live 2006. With the location so close to ocean, Santa Monica enjoys a gentle ocean breeze which helps keep temperatures down in the summer as well as keep the air clear of pollutants. For outdoor enthusiasts, Santa Monica is located just on the southern edge of the Santa Monica Mountains, giving residents countless miles of trails and wilderness to explore just a few minutes from home.

Santa Monica also continues to be on the cutting edge of infrastructure improvements to bring the city in line with the changes in technology over the last 15 years as well as keep the look and feel up to date. Santa Monica is currently funding free wireless access in various “hot spots” throughout the city and the plan is that in the near future the whole city is blanketed with a high speed wireless network.

Many street improvement projects can be seen throughout the city as well. On the southern side of Santa Monica, the Pico Improvement Organization has been changing the landscape of Pico Boulevard and the surrounding areas which now look much different than in years past. Pico, which had previously been considered an eyesore to many, is now seen in a completely different light with the infrastructure and landscaping improvements which were recently made.

Santa Monica has all the necessary ingredients to make it a great place to purchase a home or investment property.
Great schools, strong job center, wonderful weather and a location which cannot be duplicated help make Santa Monica a strong real estate market even in a slowing market.
