Relocating to the Westside? These Homes Have High Marks

Earlier this summer, a survey from the Pew Research Center found that 22% of respondents had either moved because of the pandemic or knew someone that did.

That statistic certainly doesn’t surprise the team here at Halton Pardee and Partners. Our brokerage was just recognized in The Real Deal as an LA County “market maker” with the third highest 2020 sales volume – over 63 deals valued at over $127 million.

Whether you’re relocating from the East Coast — in search of spectacular outdoor space, if you’ve always dreamt of living adjacent to the beach or, better yet, you realize your someday fantasy of living in a Robert Thibodeau / DU Architects modern is actually today — there are fabulous properties waiting for you.

Take a look at our most in-demand and hot homes below. At a range of price points, these homes are surging in popularity with out of state shoppers. With such fantastic layouts, spectacular outdoor spaces, enviable Westside locations and “zoom rooms” – it’s easy to see why.
