Brentwood is a lovely neighborhood on the Los Angeles Westside and is one of the hottest real estate markets in the city as well as the entire country. And rightfully so as it has everything an upscale buyer desires in a place to live. It is nestled at the foot of the Santa Monica Mountains and its proximity to beaches, fine shopping, restaurants, schools and services make Brentwood a top choice in Los Angeles, even compared to any other Los Angeles neighborhood.
As of this writing in mid-2020, the median home price in Brentwood is over $3 million. The range of prices are quite broad with some apartments under $1 million and homes for sale asking over $35 million. Hot properties can sell quickly and go pending in around 40 days with the average around 66 days (according to Redfin statistics).
Brentwood’s popularity has only increased over the years. It is one of LA’s most affluent communities yet is a genuinely small city far from the pace and congestion of LA. To be accurate, Brentwood isn’t actually a town or city. It’s a section of West Los Angeles, ZIP code 90049. It enjoys one of the lowest population densities in all of Los Angeles.
Long term investors have been rewarded with ever-increasing values and the lifestyle here is one that offers residents a lush and peaceful environment yet minutes from just about any amenities they care to find. Its tree-lined streets and well-maintained homes add to its popularity.
Statistics show that ownership in Brentwood is diverse, as are its home prices. This diversity shows in the wide range of services and amenities offered to residents. This upscale community is home to business leaders, affluent families, celebrities and virtually anyone of means who desires to live in a town that offers them peace and quiet, exclusivity, a status address and the ability to find anything they want just outside their doors.
The adjoining neighborhoods of Santa Monica, Bel Air, Pacific Palisades and Westwood surround Brentwood with some the finest properties and areas in all of Los Angeles and California.
