After quarantine started, have any of you considered moving neighborhoods for more space , less priority on commute? Since I’m not commuting anymore, we’re considering moving further out for cheaper rent/better value. What’re you all thinking?

This is probably not helpful, but just to even the playing field, no not thinking of moving. Live in mar vista and love that everything is so accessible. Happy to have yard and house a few min from the action vs smaller apt on abott Kinney or by beach.

I’d love to have a house with a yard in Mar Vista... however everything is far out of my price range there.

Yea, but my team has decided once Covid lockdown is finished, we’ll only need to come into the office 2-3x a week, and we have an Irvine office I can work out of if I want to on the off days.

It’s gonna suck driving, but I’m getting tired of renting an apartment and want a house with a yard for my Golden. :/

I currently live in El Segundo, and while it’s nice and close to the airport, I’m not really making a ton of use out of this benefit. Ideally I’d like to move to Torrance or someplace with a yard.

When I went to the office, it was anywhere from 25 to 45 minutes doing fast track. When I went to the airport, it was 8 mins my front door to parking lot T4 at 7am in the morning. My parents live on the east side in SGV and it used to take 1-1.25 hrs one way to see them on the weekends (so that sucked) but with corona, it’s been a steady 35 mins one way since there no traffic nowadays. I guess where are you commuting to/from that you’re trying to prioritize?

Seriously considering it.

Live in the westside and constantly getting frustrated on what I can get for the price I pay - regardless of renting or buying.

Been looking at the Valley, South Bay, even OC and I'm so tempted. I can spend the same amount on a relatively new (built in the last 20 years) townhouse or a single family home instead of these 1970-1980s condos, with absurd HOAs, that are at least 1.5 times the price.

Brentwood area. Been trying to find some neighborhood on the westside where the building is built after 1990 but doesn't charge a 30-40% premium but it's been tough given the limited housing density in the area.
