San Fernando Valley Location Information
The San Fernando Valley is considered a region in Los Angeles County. The Valley is geographically divided up by communities and neighborhoods, basically as indicated in the list above. Though there no specific designations or official separation, the San Fernando Valley locals often refer to the areas as the West Valley, East Valley and North Valley. Then, we've also heard of the Central Valley.
Is there a South Valley? It's interesting, we haven't really heard anyone make reference to the South Valley so we won't either. As a matter of fact, we know of no official boundary lines separating one section of the valley from the other.
Typical Homes in San Fernando Valley
There is nothing typical about the homes in San Fernando Valley. The homes come in all different sizes, shapes and styles. There are even a few homes built back in the early 1900's while other homes might be almost brand new. 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. Of course, many of the newer developments do come with an HOA, so if buying a home anywhere in the Valley, always verify with your realtor before making an offer to buy.
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.

Agent Favorite Features
We really like the large front and back yard! It's always great owning a home knowing you have the room to entertain, add a pool or do whatever you want.
Next, the bathrooms and kitchen are just about perfect, enhanced with the travertine flooring! Also the laminate flooring looks amazing. Having the separate air conditioning for the front and back of the house is a major plus, especially with our hot Southern California summers. Last, there's actually a usable bathroom in the garage, as well as laundry connections.
