Last month we looked at a house in the Quad Cities and compared it to a house in LA. Today we are looking at an Iowa home vs a Los Angeles home. Both are still million-dollar homes! So I wouldn't be able to get them anyways.

Here are the two spots we are comparing:

3156 Lindo St, Los Angeles, CA 90068

Cost: 1,495,000

1,384 sqft | 2 bed | 3 bath


3300 Fuller Rd, West Des Moines, IA 50265

Cost: $1,163,133

7,792 sqft | 5 bed | 5 bath

Right off the bat one thing is very clear, the LA home is much smaller AND costs about 300K more! Even with that significant price difference I still think the Iowa home is much nicer, but whoever took the pictures of the Los Angeles home did an absolutely amazing job!

The LA home was built in 1936. 

This immaculate, comfortably elegant home offers the finest level of taste nestled in a tranquil setting. The bright, spacious interior blends ideally with private front and rear yards for expanded living. A charming bay window and wood burning fireplace accent the Living Room. Off the formal dining room is a Viking kitchen, clean and classic featuring marble counters, custom cabinets and a quaint garden window.

The Iowa home was built in 1981.

Situated on a prime 2.35-acre wooded lot in WDM, this sprawling contemporary designed by famed Iowa architect Ray Crites, boasts a Calif contemporary feel–you’ve seen nothing quite like it! Built to suit the serious entertainer & art collector. Highlights: Southern exposure floor-to-ceiling windows across back of the home, glass walls, heated travertine floors, commercial kitchen w/ Viking/Sub Zero appl & a large Butler Room (w/ dumb waiter). The expansive, open-concept living areas extend living/entertaining options outdoors w/ stone patios, lush landscaping, firepit, water features & total privacy. Perfect spot for a future pool! Assessor has this as a 2-story, yet lives like a ranch w/ 4 bedrms on main lvl and stairs leading down to the open-concept living/dining/kitchen areas & 5th bed/flex rm. The Master Suite has fab custom closet & coffee bar. Bedrms 2 & 3 are connected by a glass-floor loft! 4-car heated garage, Lutron lighting, irrigation & endless storage.

Million Dollar Quad Cities Home vs Million Dollar Los Angeles Home

We all know the joke about how much houses cost in LA. I decided that it would be fun to look at a million dollar home in LA and compare that to a million dollar home right here in the Quad Cities.
Here are the two spot we are comparing:
12513 Walsh Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90066
Cost: $1,195,000
984 sqft | 3 Bed | 2 Bath


901 46th Street Dr, Moline, IL 61265
Cost: $995,000
15,291 sqft | 6 Bed | 11 Bath

Clearly one is a bit bigger than the other.
