There are a lot of things to consider, the perfect area, the right real estate agent, the neighborhood, the traffic, schools and most especially your budget. Here are some of the reasons why you should invest your forever home in Atwater Village:
Less Hustle and Bustle
Atwater Village is a cool place to live in. It’s living in a city where you don’t feel the hustle and bustle of a city or shall we say it doesn’t feel part of “rat race” that is usually common in every city today. It’s a neighborhood where you can just walk and cruise to your favorite locally owned shops and restaurants. It has a small town character which people love.
It’s on the Rise
Through the years of infrastructure development and changes, Atwater Village real estate has remained and kept its original character which explains its rise in popularity today.

Great Restaurants and Places to Hangout
Atwater Village real estate’s recent rise to popularity among buyers has caused a jolt of energy in new businesses coming in. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from. One of those is Momed. This sleek contemporary Mediterranean restaurant is an outpost of Momed in Beverly Hills. The owner, Alex Sarkissian, describes the cuisine as eastern Mediterranean with forays to Morocco, Tunisia, Iraq and Egypt. Kaldi Coffee, on the other hand, has baffled many writers as this cozy coffee shop can be oftentimes mistaken for an Apple store.

Atwater Village also has a neighborhood wine shop named, Oeno Vino, which focuses on wine and craft beer with a good price per quality ratio. The wine selection is tilted towards Italy, which is a good thing, but the shop also stocks wines from Argentina, Portugal, Spain and Australia. On top of that, The Juice, a tiny juice bar, is filled with the roar of the machines as juicing enthusiasts line up for carrot-apple-ginger or apple-celery-kale-romaine-parsley-lemon-ginger, more than a dozen combos in all. Those are just some of the cool and hip restaurants and cafes Atwater Village offers.
Atwater Village Farmers Market
Held every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Wells Fargo Bank, the Atwater Village Farmers Market gathers the more than two dozen farmers providing high quality fresh wet and dry goods. Here you can find the basics, but also find rare herb plants, organic grains and beans, local cheeses, poultry and pasture-raised meats, local fruits, veggies, fresh bakery items and homemade scented candles. Food choices are pretty amazing too, for instance, home-made soups, tacos and fresh-shucked oysters. And in the last Sunday of the month, you can bring your e-waste for recycling. So it is a pretty cool place to shop for your needs, and it has a good parking area as well.
