Unlike big cities like San Francisco and New York, there are plenty of affordable starter homes to choose from in and around the LA area. And, depending on what you’re looking for, many come loaded with additional amenities, too.

For instance, consider 1635 North Alvarado Street (in Echo Park), that offers two bedrooms and two baths, as well as a detached garage. Built in the early 1920s, this cool bungalow includes a wrap around deck that is perfect for sipping early morning coffee or taking in some fresh evening air. This home is currently listed for $699K.

If a condo is more your thing, then 1905 East 1st Street in Long Beach could be what you’re looking for. With two bedrooms and one bath, this unit is part of a Spanish-style courtyard complex. The newly remodeled kitchen in this condo includes a farmhouse sink and stainless steel appliances. As an added bonus, the unit also has space for a washer and dryer. This one is priced at just $545K, with homeowners’ association dues of $259 per month.
