    LA is all over the map; you could have a 4 unit apartment building in North Long Beach, or you could find yourself plunking that down on a house on the West side.

    There's a 4000 sq. ft. beautiful home on 45 wooded acres about 1/4 mile down my street. Last price I saw listed for it was about $900,000.

    Robinson, once called America’s most famous squatter, quietly complied last year with a civil order to vacate the Flower Mound home. He could not be reached for comment.
