Glendale, CA real estate has been booming since the city began its methodical facelift along with an economic, creative and cultural rebirth.

Glendale is a city located in the eastern corner of the San Fernando Valley, to the west of Eagle Rock and Pasadena. Glendale is home to one of the largest communities of Armenians in the United States, with 25% of the population being Armenian.

In the early part of the 1900s, Glendale grew quickly, with Brand Boulevard becoming a center for shopping, business, and entertainment. When the 134 and 2 freeways were completed in the 1970s, Glendale again saw a rise in development. The Glendale Galleria, one of the largest shopping malls in the country, was completed in 1976, and more shops and businesses opened up along Brand Boulevard, which is now known as one of the main shopping and business corridors in Glendale. In 2008, the Americana at Brand, an outdoor shopping and residential community, was opened to the public.

Many of Glendale's homes were custom-built in the 1920s-1940s. Architectural styles vary greatly. There are also many different neighborhoods that make up Glendale, which vary greatly - from the small town feel of Montrose to the urban living environment at the Americana to several hilly areas with homes that feature spectacular views of the valley and mountains. Some other neighborhoods include Adams Hill, Sparr Heights, Verdugo Woodlands, Rossmoyne, Montecito Park, Chevy Chase Canyon, and El Miradero.

Glendale has many historical and cultural monuments. Forest Lawn Memorial Park (the original location being in Glendale) is a privately owned cemetery and park, created to provide an enjoyable atmosphere to celebrate the dead. In addition to its park-like grounds, Forest Lawn has a museum displaying art and artifacts from all over the world. Brand Library and Art Center, housed in the El Miradero mansion built in 1904, features a collection of works, as well as many art and music events. The grounds of Brand Park are great for hiking, picnicking, and more.

For homebuyers looking to purchase a home in Glendale, CA, it is imperative that they hire a Glendale real estate agent who specializes in the area and who knows the neighborhoods and understands the local market.
