It's a four-bedroom home, south of Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills. In the late '80s it sold for $399,000. Then it lapsed into foreclosure, a common event in the '90s as aerospace jobs vanished and the San Fernando Valley's housing market nose-dived. Recently, Liz Grant saw the home, liked it instantly, and found herself in a bidding war to buy it. The bank finally accepted her $275,000 offer, which was the full asking price.

If there were an Oscar category for real estate, the 1998 San Fernando Valley market would be a shoo-in for "best performance in a decade wracked by recession and terrifying natural disasters."
