Freeway Close



Looking beyond Santa Monica, in the truth in advertising category:

"... very nice area, freeway close, ... a diamond in the rough."

Got the part about freeway close right! This 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath house on Globe Ave. in Mar Vista, asking $720,000, is at the red pushpin. You won't find a better view of the 405's traffic and current widening constuction (click image to enlarge). (Aerial 3D (c) Microsoft maps.live.com.)

and Venice Blvd close... not exactly an area I would want to raise my family.

last sale was Jan 04 for $475,000. So the guy is looking for $250,000 increase in value over 3 years when the only thing that changed is you are now even closer to the freeway. nice!

Not to mention how conveniently close it is to all those nice apartments across the alley. Clearly a neighborhood on its way up.
