Manhattan Beach is the Center of the South Bay Real Estate Universe

By Keith Kyle

From just about every perspective, Manhattan Beach is the epicenter of real estate in the South Bay. The combination of great schools, small town charm, proximity to the airport and downtown (but not too close) and the hard to ignore reality that it’s become a very high “status” area make it the most sought after city in the area.

What this means is that home prices in Manhattan Beach impact the surrounding communities. As more buyers are priced out of Manhattan they often start searching in nearby Hermosa Beach…when that becomes too expensive they start looking in El Segundo, Redondo Beach real estate and the surrounding cities.  This is pretty clearly indicated by the median home prices in each of the areas.  Manhattan Beach saw a median home price of $2,075,000, with the median in Hermosa at $1,570,000, El Segundo at $1,151,000 and Redondo Beach near (exact numbers not available) $1,032,000.  Each of the neighboring cities can offer fantastic neighborhoods and are great communities, but it’s clear that Manhattan Beach real estate is the driving force that impacts prices in the nearby communities and cities.

South Bay Home Inventory Continues to Rise

By Keith Kyle

What may be the beginning of a slight shift in the South Bay real estate market, inventory has continued to rise for the 5th straight month as both pending and sold homes remained relatively flat. Active homes for sale in July of 2014 were up 40% from the same month in 2013, while sold homes declined 11.7% and pending home sales only increased by 3.5%. This buildup of inventory may finally slow the market and lead to a market not so heavily favoring sellers.  The local Manhattan Beach real estate trends are slightly different with numbers being somewhat similar to a year ago in terms of active, pending and closed home sales although prices continue to rise, especially in the higher end of the market.  To see the most recent home sales visit our recent sales information site.

Considering Sellng Your Fusion Townhome? I Just May Have a Buyer

Fusion South Bay is a gated community located in the Hollyglen neighborhood of Hawthorne. It also happens to be directly across the street from Manhattan Beach and is a fantastic option for buyers in the South Bay that are either priced out of Manhattan, Hermosa and Redondo, or just want a home with some extra square footage and all the bells and whistles at a reasonable price.  For sellers out there considering whether to list their homes, this is a great time to sell.  As one of the most active realtors in Fusion I can attest to the current demand and am happy to say that of the last 3 home sales I represented 2 of the 3 buyers.  Visit our what’s my home worth page for more information in obtaining the value of your home.
