So many factors play into moving to a new city, and in the 2022 housing market, availability is one of the biggest.

This doesn’t mean you might not want to do your own renovations down the road, it just means they are ready to go right now. There are certainly other options in Glendale, but this sampling will give you an idea of what is on the market currently.

A small step up from West Glenn Estates, Coventry Estates offers homes that are slightly more expensive due to the proximity of the new development just south of the 101. This nice neighborhood is a bit more upscale than the others and does have an HOA. Luckily, that fee is only $19 a month and provides access to the walking paths and small park with picnic grounds and a basketball court. A three-bed/two-bath home here is listed for $589,000.
Our final neighborhood splits the difference between the former two. Built-in the late 1990s, these homes are certainly older, but with a great location, this is a pretty desirable neighborhood nonetheless. A 4 bed/two-bath home with a pool in Hillcrest Ranch is listed for $585,000. For just a bit less than the home in Coventry Estates, you get a pool and will be centrally located between a few great schools. This makes Hillcrest Ranch a great fit for families as the schools are practically walkable.
