When you say Los Angeles, used car deals may not be the first thing that comes to mind. You might imagine movie sets, celebrities,and their sprawling estates. While that’s definitely the case at times, LA actually came out in our Deal Alert as having some of the most affordable prices on luxury cars.
Affordable and Los Angeles, are not usually two things that go together. Consistently ranking on America’s most expensive cities lists, Los Angeles is famous or infamous in some cases for it’s high cost of living. With the average single family home costing a half a million, it’s very much a renter’s market like New York or San Francisco.
Having lived there for a decade, I can attest personally to the high cost of living, but I can also say that you will save money where you least expect. As a woman I notice a huge difference in the cost of beauty services (nail salons, spas, etc.) than in my current resident state, Florida. Los Angeles has much lower prices, if you can believe it. Organic produce is generally more cost effective there as well, as a large percentage of the organic farms that distribute their goods to the country’s Whole Foods are California -based. With all that in mind, it’s not that surprising that they also came out in our November Deal Alert as one of the best cities for used car deals.
