Sherman Oaks Real Estate

Sherman Oaks Map

This Sherman Oaks map is a valuable reference tool as many other maps of Sherman Oaks available online do not accurately depict the boundaries of the Sherman Oaks neighborhood. Specifically, the Los Angeles City Council adopted a resolution in 2009 expanding the Sherman Oaks neighborhood to include that area bounded by Burbank Boulevard to the south, Oxnard Street to the north, the 405 freeway to the west and Van Nuys Boulevard to the east. This area is now considered Sherman Oaks but was previously part of Van Nuys. There is a large difference between Van Nuys property values and Sherman Oaks property values and residents of this area fought hard to get the area annexed to the Sherman Oaks neighborhood. However, because this area is in the 91411 zip code which the United States Postal Service recognizes as Van Nuys, many databases still incorrectly identify this area as Van Nuys. Being a part of Sherman Oaks is very valuable when homeowners decide to put their homes on the market for sale or when they are refinancing their home loan to help with obtaining a higher appraised value for their home.

Sherman Oaks Homes

Sherman Oaks residential real estate is older with many homes constructed in the 1950s. There is very little new construction south of Ventura Boulevard and no large scale gated-communities as with Tarzana. However, much like Encino homes, Sherman Oaks homes are very desirable in large part because of Sherman Oaks' proximity and easy access to all the major commercial hubs in Los Angeles county.
