Why Prefab Is Perfect for Los Angeles
Los Angeles home prices have been soaring for years, with today’s median home price climbing close to $1 million. According to prominent real estate aggregator Zillow, median prices in the area have nearly doubled since January 2012.
All signs point to even higher climbs in the near future. Bidding wars have ensured that even when the rest of the nation saw a steep decline in real estate prices, a home here in LA remained extravagant. Over the next 12 months, Zillow predicts a 12.1% rise in home values.
Despite its notorious commute and other hassles, Los Angeles remains the city of choice for a new generation of rising professionals, executives, and growing families. But, the barriers to entry are getting higher, and homeowners need to think creatively to make smart, savvy decisions.
The future of homes – especially here in Los Angeles – is prefab.
A modern prefabricated home from Proto Homes fits Angelenos’ lifestyle to a T.
Compared to new construction, prefabricated homes:
- Are more sustainable and benefit from low environmental impact
- Can provide a unique and modern aesthetic
- Offer far greater longevity and help you care for future generations
- Are cost-effective, easy to maintain, and move-in ready in months
Plus, California’s recent changes to laws governing accessory dwellings have made it easier than ever to put a prefabricated dwelling on land with existing construction, so homeowners looking to expand – for example, to accommodate teens or grandparents – also have options.
That makes prefab attractive for a range of housing situations, not just first-time residents looking to move into a new home. Prefab structures are helping upscale buyers who have a firm vision of luxury avoid the effects of the Los Angeles housing crunch.
