I am beyond excited to share this post with you! Yes, it’s a sponsored post but I swear on my cute cat baby, Milo, that I am honestly so thrilled about Expo Walk by the Olson Company! I might even climb the stairs at Baldwin Hills overlook to shout about it from the hilltop! (Yes – I’m that excited!)
If you’ve started your L.A. house hunt then you’ve likely encountered the L.A. pricing challenging a.k.a. the “non-movie star budget” problem.
Unless you have at least a million dollars casually lying around, it’s hard to find a home, let alone a new home, that’s reasonably priced. That is why so many people end up with a crazy work commute. They leave the city in hopes of finding an affordable home and end up having to sit in a car for over an hour twice a day just to get to and from work!
If you’re set on staying in the Los Angeles area (I totally feel you on this) and you’re looking to buy a home, Expo Walk is everything you’ve been dreaming of and so much more! Prepare yourself, I may have just found your new home!
LOCATION + PRICE
Let’s get into the details! Expo Walk is the amazing new community of townhomes located in Leimert Park (Never heard of the neighborhood? Check out this article). Homes start in the low $700,000’s (can you believe it?! Beautiful, NEW homes at one of the best prices in all of L.A.!) which caught me entirely off guard. I had a small house on my street go up for sale recently for more than a million dollars.
Wait, it gets better.
Sustainability played a big role when it came to the development of these homes. This is part of the reason I’m so obsessed! EVERY single home comes with solar power that you can lease month to month or purchase.
Is your budget alarm going off? I was expecting the solar lease to be in the $100-$200 range a month but it’s actually closer to $50! Miracles do happen.
Expo Walk also offers an easy access walkway so that you can hop on the metro for work or weekend travel (the Crenshaw station is right next to the community)! This also means you won’t have to worry about parking your car somewhere and paying fees, you can just leave your car at home in your lovely 2 car garage.
These townhomes are truly designed to help you save money and live consciously with features that make your home more eco-efficient.
I loved checking out the smartphone and voice command-enabled home tech powered by Google Assist/Alexa! It’s so futuristic!
Every home comes with a Nest camera doorbell and options for a variety of tech add-ons.
In one of the models, I was able to test out the Alexa features. With the voice commands “good morning” and “goodnight”, Alexa can lower or lift the blinds and turn off/on the lights! Plus, for the very first time in my life, I turned on a shower via voice command. Can you believe it? Voice operated showers are a real thing, THE FUTURE HAS ARRIVED!
Smart stoves also come standard with each home! Almost too good to be true, right?!
I just learned that you can scan a food package barcode with your smart stove and it’ll preheat to the proper temperature! Mind blown.
SPACE + LAYOUTS
There are different home layout options to match the desires of your heart!
You can opt for more outdoor living space by choosing one of the layouts with a deck or you can opt for the 2 story option instead of 3 if you prefer to keep the bedrooms near the main living area.
No matter which specific layout you choose, you do get an adorable front patio and plenty of space! The smallest home is 1,200 square feet.
It’s exciting to see what a life in Los Angeles could look like!
If I were designing a dream house from scratch, I’d choose so many of the features that the Expo Walk townhomes already have.
Great location, reasonably priced, eco-efficient, and they’re new! The “new” part might seem like a minor detail to you now but imagine moving in and not having to stress about home repairs and old water tanks busting. No one wants to spend their weekend’s problem-solving house issues!
Overall, my husband and I were beyond impressed with the Expo Walk Townhomes! We even started crunching the numbers to see if we could turn one of these stunning homes into our first home!
I have no doubt that these dream homes are sure to make their future owners very happy!
