When you are strolling the streets of West Highlands, you’ll notice the beautiful Victorian style architecture that has been preserved over the years.  The front yards flaunt mature trees that don’t disappoint.  You can’t miss the busyness of 32nd Ave!  Decorated with bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques, you won’t get bored.  Start at Irving St and explore 32nd on foot.

A good rule of thumb: the closer you are to 32nd Ave, the more expensive real estate will be.  Keep this in mind as you are searching for a home, while you are close to the amenities and livelihood of 32nd, the trade off is your bank account depleting.

Be sure to check out Highlands Park on Federal and 32nd!  It’s got great open space, basketball courts, and a play park for the kids.

West Highlands is such a great place to be, you’ll always be energized walking around 32nd.  However, it’s not a secret that people love West Highlands, as evidenced by the low inventory and how quick homes go when they do hit the market.  It’s important for you to have a real estate agent who is diligently searching the market for you, so you are in a position to strike when the right home does become available.
