In 2019 Kali Uchis opened her purse and wrote a $1.7 million check to purchase a residence in the trendy Valley Village neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley. (Boss sh*t, tbh.)
The Los Angeles Times reported that Uchis, who’s a Colombian American born in Virginia, purchased the home for $1.722 million.
“In 4,070 square feet, the home holds five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms across two stories,” wrote LA Times staff writer Jack Flemming.
A Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, Uchis is one of many iconic women to choose to live in the Valley.
So… what makes Valley Village so desirable?
“If you were asking me as a buyer, Iâ€™d say itâ€™s a family-oriented, trendy neighborhood close to the boulevard. If youâ€™re asking me as a seller, I’d say itâ€™s an up-and-coming neighborhood thatâ€™s rapidly appreciating.”
According to Aguilar, you won’t be able to snag a Valley Village home for less than $750,000.
Part of what makes Valley Village so special is that it borders Valley Glen, Studio City, North Hollywood, and Sherman Oaks â€” all very trendy neighborhoods in the area.
“Valley Village is kind of like the Silver Lake of the Valley,” Aguilar said. “Itâ€™s cheaper than Studio City and Sherman Oaks, because itâ€™s not directly [north of] the boulevard, but it still has that small-town allure that Studio City and Sherman Oaks have.”
