Eagle Rock homes have been steadily climbing in value. The price range for homes in Eagle Rock range between the low $500,000’s to the mid $900,000’s. The demand for homes in Eagle Rock is increasing because of the low-priced, high-quality homes sprouting up throughout the community.
The recent inhabitants of the neighborhood initiated the gentrification of Eagle Rock. Since the early 1900’s Eagle Rock has been known for its high concentration of artists and creative types. Filmmakers and writers and the combination of young professionals have worked together to increase the face value of Eagle Rock. Not only have the homes been repaired and restored, but new art galleries, coffee shops, and unique restaurants have been established as well. This fact has further helped Eagle Rock real estate to soar in value.
The majority of these new hot spots can be found on Colorado or Eagle Rock Blvd. Some traditional family restaurants include baked pizza at Casa Bianca, unique burgers at The Oinkster, delicious barbeque sandwiches from Dave’s Chillin & Grillin, succulent omelets at Pete’s, and Mexican food that tastes like its straight from Ensenada at Cacao Mexicatessen. There are also gourmet restaurants like Little Beast.
The schools in Eagle Rock have a wonderful reputation of delivering high quality education. The schools are located within the neighborhoods of Eagle Rock where it’s safe for children to walk to school. Some of the most well known elementary schools include Dahlia Heights and Eagle Rock Elementary. Occidental College can also be found tucked nicely within an Eagle Rock neighborhood. “Oxy” was founded in 1887 and is a private, liberal arts college. It was one of the first liberal arts colleges founded on the West Coast. Oxy is a great choice for college, because the students get the quaint neighborhood experience, and are also next door to the city of Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles.
The gentrification of Eagle Rock has just begun. The attractive community continues to bring in more people. Eagle Rock will continue to grow and become one of the top neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
