3 Great Communities in Oak Park and Westlake Village around $700k

I work with a lot of first time home buyers and people relocating to the Conejo Valley. One of the most common questions I get asked is what does a decent townhome or condo cost. If you’re coming from out of the area, you may think $700,000 will get you 3,000 sqft on an acre. Not in the Conejo Valley! However there are nice homes available for a decent price. I put together the three most common entry-level communities in Oak Park and Westlake Village that I show to buyers.

Here is my criteria:

1. Popular with buyers

2. Around $600k-$700k (not every listing, but most)

3. Active market (there are usually several to choose from)

4. Good resale value

Capri Townhomes ($500k-$750k)

Ask a local to recommend a townhome community and Capri will likely be the response. Why? Because it strikes the right chords for lots of buyers – more affordable, solid pool area, and walkability to local eateries and boutiques. What it may lack in privacy, it definitely makes up in community.

Hidden Canyon Townhomes ($375k-$600k)

Hidden Canyon Featured (2)
Yes, Westlake Village does offer some affordable homes for first time buyers. One of the most popular is the Hidden Canyon community that lies up on a hill overlooking the valley. It’s a sprawling neighborhood made up of townhomes and condos set right next to the action offering convenience without sacrificing privacy.  (Click here for more info and Hidden Canyon homes for sale)

Shadow Ridge Condos and Townhomes ($280k-$450k)

Shadow Ridge New
Shadow Ridge is hands down the most affordable neighborhood in Oak Park. And very little is left behind with the budget. Its known for its many amenities: two pools, gym, and racquetball area. And tucked back up on a hill is a barbeque area, tennis, and basketball courts – very cool. For those with a starter-home budget, this is one of the best areas to start.  (Click here for more info and Shadow Ridge homes for sale)
