Why La Canada is the perfect place to call home

Remember the real estate golden rule: location, location, location. Savvy, house hunters typically start by selecting a neighborhood. Unfortunately, Los Angeles home buyers can seldom get all the boxes checked on their house hunting wish list. To help with your selection process, Harb and Co. has compiled a list of the critical components to convince you that La Canada is the perfect place to call home.

With our Los Angeles freeways becoming ever so crowded, for those driving to and from work each day commute time is a major factor when determining a neighborhood in which to live.

Home buyers with children desire award winning schools.  One of La Canada’s most desirable features: our highly rated public schools. Having your children with the same group of friends from kindergarten to high school was one of the things I appreciated most about living in La Canada. Not only are great schools important for families they also boost values at the time of resale.

Daily Routine
What do you enjoy? Do you love the great outdoors? Or maybe you prefer to start your morning off on a quieter note. Perhaps at one of our local coffee shops. Not everyone can afford a home on a large level lot. You might desire a local park to host birthday parties. Or to meet up for a play date. And if you are a dog lover, where to walk the dog and proximity to dog parks should be taken into consideration. La Canada boosts many hiking and riding trails that are ideal for walking, running and hiking.  La Canada is an equestrian community – we are horse friendly and home to Flintridge Riding Club.

Shopping, Restaurants and Entertainment
Being in close proximity to grocery stores, including specialty stores such as Trader Joes, Sprouts and Gelsons may be an important factor to consider.  Foothill Blvd. and our La Canada Town Center is where you will find most of our local restaurants. La Canada also has a movie theater and additional restaurants on the West side of town.

Outdoor concerts, movies and a weekly Farmer’s Market often bring the community together. For example, our annual Fiesta Days, in commemoration of Memorial Day is the city’s biggest event. Nearly the entire town turns out for the annual parade.

Nearly everyone appreciates a neighborhood where the hot spots are within close proximity. Having the ability to leave the car at home and walk to coffee shops, restaurants, parks and nightlife is also an easy way to keep in shape.

Keep in mind the factors that are important to you when buying will be just as important to your bottom line when it comes time to sell.

In Short, La Canada is the perfect place to call home and I would love to turn your dream into reality.
