Many of the homes found on the market were built from the 1950's thru the 1970's. Still, there is no rule of thumb on this.
Generally, there are not nearly as many homeowner associations here in the Valley as might be found in newer communities, however they are a common occurrence within condo and townhome communities.

Selling Homes in San Fernando Valley
If you are a resident and planning to sell your home in the Valley, it's important to make your home look it's best. Certainly, this is true when selling any home, but it might be more important here in the Valley. Because many of the homes are older, it's not uncommon to have gone through a number of upgrades, additions or even major renovations. Home buyers will be looking for a home they can move into without any added work. You can expect the buyer to obtain an independent home inspection as well, so it's important you are prepared and ready to pass the inspection.
Also, when selling a home anywhere in California, the sellers must provide a disclosure statement indicating all known problems with the home. This is NOT a big deal, as long as the necessary repairs have been made and you can honestly include the information in your statement. The bottom line is, if you want to market and sell your home for top dollar, it must be in good repair, look good and feel great!
