It's still Los Angeles county, even if it's not the city of Los Angeles. So you're still right.
But to the OP: I agree, it's a bit annoying when people ask "how much is this worth" or "what can I expect to pay.." or "where can I find a place that...." other such questions that are going to vary based on location without providing the location they are in. This site caters to such an international crowd, and the answer for some questions are going to be very different depending on where in the world one is.
