In Redfin's "Hottest Neighborhoods of 2014," Northeast Los Angeles' own neighborhood of Eagle Rock takes the number two spot, behind Bernal Heights North Slope in San Francisco.
The website ranked these neighborhoods based on website data (including page visits), realtor input, and - more importantly - access and affordability. Not only do trending neighborhoods have lower median home prices, they offer easy commutes wither by car or public transit.
Eagle Rock's median price range in 2013, according to Redfin, was $539,000 - and saw a 128% jump in page views last year. It's a charming neighborhood with a variety of home styles, clean streets, and great shops and restaurants especially along Eagle Rock and Colorado Boulevard. Our favorite Mexican food restaurant to take new Eagle Rock resident's to is CaCao Mexicatessen - it's a must!
The urban hillsides neighborhood is bordered by the cities of Glendale and Pasadena, adding a suburban atmosphere and then Highland Park and Glassell Park that maintain an edgy, city vibe. Occidental College, the Ivy League of the west, is at the southern edge of Eagle Rock, adding a unexpected collegian energy to the area.
We agree that Eagle Rock is a superb community deserving of the standing given to it by Redfin. Want to know more about the neighborhoods we serve, including Eagle Rock? Click here!
