Van Nuys Real Estate
Van Nuys is one of the more affordable neighborhoods within the city limits of Los Angeles. The housing stock in the neighborhood consists of single-family homes, townhomes, and condominiums. Residential architecture evolved here in distinct phases. Starting in 1911, Craftsman and Colonial Revival homes were commonly built. In the 1920s, Spanish Colonial and English Revival homes became popular. In the 1930s, many homes were built following the Minimal Traditional style. After WWII, California Ranch homes increased in popularity. The swelling population of Van Nuys - and much of San Fernando Valley - accelerated during the Postwar period, fueled in-part by low interest, government-backed loans (one of the benefits extended to veterans as part of the G.I. Bill). The 1950s and 1960s suburbanization of Los Angeles County further contributed to the area’s growth. From the 1970s onward, additional housing stock came in the form of condos and multi-unit investment properties.
