The Kardashians, the Osbournes, and Justin Beiber! The upscale city of Calabasas, CA has become the place for the hot, young and rich, according to Curbed LA News.

In addition, due to the age of the properties, cracks in the walls, cracked or uneven floors exhibit symptoms of possible foundation problems, according to Today’s Home Owner.
Along with the age of the properties, the drought in the late 1950’s can have already damage homes and buildings. Cracking in the foundation, walls, etc. could have occurred due to the parched soil, according to CityofCalabasas.com. Plumbing issues are another common problem that occurs with older properties. These issues may also come to exist because many properties tend to be on the hillsides, since Calabasas falls in the hills west of San Fernando Valley.
