This home in the El Sereno neighborhood in northeast Los Angeles is close in price per square foot to the San Diego home on our list, but it's a considerably smaller house. The asking price recently dropped by $7,000, so it now is cheaper than LA's median home price. It's a three-bedroom and one-bathroom home built in 1947 that sold in July 2013 and is back on the market following some remodeling. There's new flooring throughout with ceramic tile in the bathroom, laminate floors in the kitchen and new carpet in the bedrooms. The upgraded kitchen includes granite counter tops, wood cabinets and standard appliances. This home also has a new toilet, shower and fixtures. The front yard has new landscaping, and there's a detached garage.
