Whittier Real Estate: Your Style

December 31, 2009

From 10,000 square foot estates to modest and cozy California ranches, there is a size for everyone, if Whittier feels like home to you. Today, Whittier feels like home to over 80,000 people, large enough to be noticed, but not so large you feel lost. The community of Whittier has great schools and a pleasant, suburban, family feel. Although it became a charter law city in 1898, the first real Whittier real estate boom arose, as many had, after World War II. Modestly priced Whittier homes are mostly cozy ranch style single story structures. You won’t find many reminders of its Quaker roots in two-story homes. Two-story homes as well as split-levels are largely in the contemporary style with Spanish inspiration. Whittier homes for sale at or near the $500K range vary in style from Spanish to ultra modern to expansive ranches. Many of these homes were spectacularly renovated during the recent boom. With 40% of the homes for sale in the area classified as foreclosures, there are bargains to be had. Your Whittier real estate agent will be your best guide to the styles of architecture and home sizes available in your price range.
