  • Redondo Beach Brokers Open Favorite Listing

    Redondo Beach Brokers Open Today

    Of all the listings I saw today, my favorite was 520 N Guadalupe, #C in South Redondo. I’ll be honest… I wasn’t crazy about climbing all the stairs to the front door, but it will be easier from the garage. This town home has nice ocean views from the master bedroom. But what it also has is tons of space. This home feels substantial. And the back patio is lovely with stone and a fountain. The kitchen is great too. This home needs some updating, but it is, without a doubt, move-in ready.

  • Just Sold: 602 S Broadway, #A $1,175,000

    Light, bright 3 bedroom town home on a beautiful, wide street in South Redondo.

    I just sold 602 S Broadway, #A Redondo Beach, CA 90277. It’s a lovely 3 bedroom front unit town home in South Redondo, just a few short blocks to the beach and close to Rivera Village. We closed yesterday and my clients can’t wait to start enjoying life at the beach! They purchased the property for $1,175,000 – 9% below the asking price. This home was a great buy for several reasons. The location is amazing. It’s a 3 bedroom, but the floor plan will allow for a 4th bedroom and additional square footage which will help build equity in the coming years. The traditional floor plan gives this town home the feeling of a single family home.  The sellers did a good job maintaining the home and with some updating to current styles, this property should continue to increase in value.

  • Redondo Beach / Area 151: Home Sales August 2013

    Posted on September 19th, 2013 acimetta No comments

    North Redondo Homes Sales August 2013

    Seventeen homes sold in August 2013 in Area 151 in North Redondo. This is 2 less than the number of homes sold in July, and 4 homes less than sold one year ago in August 2012. In most cases, it has continued to be a sellers’ market although buyers still have the advantage of buying homes at prices below the peak of the bubble and at low interest rates.

    New construction is still a good buy considering you can spend the same (and even more money, in some cases) and get a town home that is up to 7 years old. Most homes are still selling quickly… many within the first week. And this translates into offers coming in immediately followed by a couple of days of negotiations before an offer is accepted.

    One of the sales that really surprised me is 2144 Perry Ave. It’s a single family that had an addition. It does have a lot of square footage, but there is only a one car garage and it’s lacking in the quality department. this one sold for $1,115,000. This surprised me and many of my colleagues, but it showed that buyers are still feeling that desperation to get in the market and ultimately willing to pay a premium.
