A boom city that emerged as part of the post-World War II economy, Lakewood is an upper-middle class area with a prime location and a growing economy. Populated by just over 80,000 people, Lakewood’s median household income was nearly $78,000 in 2010. The Los-Angeles suburb features many government and education jobs, making the area appealing to landlords, as many residents have solid, steady incomes. In addition to its economic advantages, the city’s claims to fame include Denny’s – the first restaurant of the popular national chain was founded here. Additionally, Sports Illustrated named Lakewood as “Sportstown USA” in its 2005 issue. If you’re a Lakewood landlord who hopes to make your investment grow, Utopia Property Management is eager to help.
