The websites Trulia and Zillow are fantastic resources when you’re looking at places to live, whether it’s renting or buying. I used Trulia extensively when we had to move from Santa Monica and is actually how I found the listing for where we live now. I used it a lot earlier this year to also look at places we could move to when we considered not renewing our lease here. There’s a lot of fabulousness out in Los Angeles, especially in the Hollywood and Silver Lake/Los Feliz area! But I really hadn’t been looking at it again until a friend had pointed out this fantastic house he and his girlfriend were drooling over…mind you, we all know this isn’t affordable, so don’t think I’m dabbling in million-dollar homes. But it’s such a nice dream to have. So here’s the house they currently love:
Believe me, I would freakin set up shop and be set for life if we could live in this place. But yeah, it’s basically $1.5MM dollars. HOLY SHIT. That’s a lot of fucking money. But you should click the picture to see the listing – the place has those modern elements that make me drool. It’s gorgeous.
Here are some others that I’ve found that I’m particularly fond of…
Anyway, even though we’re not in the housing market this second, I think it’s definitely something we’d like to make happen in the near future. And it can’t hurt to look at what’s out there – although we’ll have to tamper our expectations JUST a bit.
