Welcome to Westwood
Home to the esteemed University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Brentwood has a substantial population of young, promising individuals exploring young adulthood in LA. Because of this melting pot environment of the student body, Westwood is diverse and ever-changing, with a heavy emphasis on the balance of academia and fun. Think college town in the middle of the city. The true best of both worlds.
Westwood is urban but walkable, the perfect population density for people who want to bike or stroll everywhere. Like any other LA city, traffic and parking can be tough. So the efforts the city has made to increase bike safety and walkability are much appreciated by both short- and long-term residents.
Tons of restaurants, bars, and shopping attract people from the greater LA areas. High-end restaurants attract foodies and celebrities, while local dive bars and old-school favorites perpetuate the old college town feel. Students love nothing more than a cozy coffee shop to write or study, so copious craft coffee shops line Westwood Boulevard and beyond.
School spirit is strong, adding to the palpable sense of camaraderie and community. Though a large swath of the neighborhood is transient and may only stay during their tenure at UCLA, there’s a solid group of longtime locals that roll deep.
Westwood is also safe, a great place to raise a family or live as a young coed. It boasts a top-notch public school system and private school. With the revered academic powerhouse of UCLA looming large over the city, residents are naturally drawn toward education.
Westwood is located in between Century City, Sawtelle, Brentwood, and Holmby Hills. Tons of hikes, gardens, and forests lay within or close to Westwood, plus it’s just a few miles from the beach. Westwood is the best of LA in one little small urban package.
Westwood has incredible investment property potential. Many owners rent their homes to the large and ever-changing student population. With guaranteed new tenants every year, there is always someone looking for a place. If you’re on the hunt for rental properties with little risk, look no further than Westwood.
