Top 5 Reasons People Love Glendale Real Estate
The Glendale location is incredible!
Glendale is close to everything. Downtown LA is just 10 minutes to the south, and there are a LOT of ways to get there. Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley to the east, although it can get a little hairy at peak travel times. Burbank and the Valley to the West – perfect for people working in the valley entertainment businesses. Do you need to get to the Westside of LA during peak traffic? It’s counter-intuitive, but the fastest way to get there during rush hour is over the north rim of the valley.
Whether you buy a single family home, a condo or find a sweet investment unit opportunity, Glendale Real Estate is a smart move.
Glendale is Super Safe
Glendale consistently ranks as one of the safest cities in the nation, per capita! In fact, it is ranked as one of the ten safest cities in the nation!!
This means your kids can have a little more freedom, you can feel better about walking about and you are less likely to encounter petty theft and vandalism. We aren’t perfect, but it’s pretty darn good.
Downtown Glendale is Happening
Downtown Glendale has had tremendous growth and energy in the last ten years. It’s changed so much, Curbed LA named Glendale it’s Neighborhood of the Year. People are bustling, new restaurants are springing up and Glendale Library, Arts and Culture is doing an amazing job with the Neon Museum, Central Library, Antaeus Theater, and The Alex Theater.
Glendale City Services
City services are a totally underrated way to evaluate a place to buy real estate But life is easier when the police show up or the electricity is both consistent and reasonably priced, right? Glendale real estate has the best combination of great schools, responsive police and fire and city-owned utilities that are quality and well priced.
Stuff To Do And See In Glendale
Glendale Real Estate Insider Intel
If you assume we are all about one culture or ethnicity you are missing the boat. City officials have invested years into developing Downtown Glendale into an 18 hour city where people can work, live, entertain and shop without ever getting into a car. We love the Neon Museum, Central Library and shopping at the Americana.
A relatively new focus is developing Glendale CA into a center for technology companies- we recently launched a $1,000,000 startup accelerator fund. We already have Service Titan occupying the former Nestle Campus at the north end of Downtown. This is big news for anyone interested in buying a Glendale Ca home.
But the big deal for those just getting to know Glendale CA is how easy it is to live here. Everything is more convenient than in our Big Urban neighbors.
Glendale Real Estate Report
What We Love About Glendale
Dollar for dollar, we think living in a Glendale home beats our urban neighbors in almost every regard. We are safer, our schools are ranked higher and our Downtown got us Curbed LA’s Neighborhood of The Year. We have the shopping, the theater, amazing restaurants, the best Central Library and an interesting, diverse population.
Stuff We Don’t Love
It’s true. We have some really bad drivers. We have more than our fair share of drivers who think they are in a James Bond film every, freakin’ day. Be especially careful on the south end of Glendale Blvd. and around Hoover High school when school lets out.
The Glendale Unified School District is the envy of many. We have 26 California Distinguished Schools, 9 National Blue Ribbon Schools and 17 Title 1 Achieving Schools. We also have several Magnet Schools, Charter Schools and Language Immersion Schools that attract students from all over Southern California
