Gilberto Saavedra appeared to know exactly what he wanted when he went shopping for a house. He chose a tidy, four-bedroom stucco-and-brick home on a quiet street in an ethnically diverse Sylmar neighborhood. The real estate agent who handled the sale two months ago said Saavedra, a 41-year-old Colombian national, selected the house without an agent and came to him for the transaction. He agreed to a $190,000 price with little haggling, and financed it with a bank mortgage.

Gilberto Saavedra appeared to know exactly what he wanted when he went shopping for a house. He chose a tidy, four-bedroom stucco and brick house on a quiet street in a racially mixed Sylmar neighborhood.

He agreed to a $190,000 price with little haggling, and financed it with a bank mortgage.
