As a residential real estate specialist who has lived in South Pasadena for almost two decades, I have made various observations regarding the real estate market in our city.
First of all, this is a great place to live and people want to live here for a variety of reasons: wonderful schools, neighborhoods, community spirit, safety, transportation, library resources and charming restaurants, shops and galleries, to name a few! But we are small!
Our population is small and we have a limited number of properties for sale at any given time. The good news is that our property values have held really well during the current economic downturn! Investing in a South Pasadena property, especially at today's record-low interest rates, is more desirable than ever!
As President of the South Pasadena Preservation Foundation, I have seen firsthand how South Pasadenans care about protecting the integrity of their city, including opposing the completion of the 710 Freeway. Our city is unique in it's makeup and location - Just walk around and experience the way of life that is South Pasadena!
