An Abundance of New Listings in The TRW Tract of North Redondo Beach

By Keith KyleTRW-Redondo-House

Bucking the trend of just about everywhere else in the Beach Cities, the small pocket in North Redondo Beach known as the TRW Tract has seen an abundance of new listings come to the market in the past few weeks.  As of March 12th there are 4 active single family homes for sale and one home currently in escrow.  What makes the TRW area unique, especially for North Redondo, is that the zoning only allows for single family homes so there are no townhomes or condos giving it a very nice community feel.

Village Palos Verdes – Oceanview Townhomes in the Hollywood Riviera

By Keith KyleVillage Palos Verdes

One of the more affordable ways of finding an ocean view home in the Hollywood Riviera is the largest complex in the area known as Village Palos Verdes.  Located just east of Palos Verdes Blvd and west of Calle Mayor, the complex is just a short walk to Torrance Beach and the charming shopping area of Riviera Village.  There are 180 units in the complex and due to combination of the staggered layout and the hillside location, many/most of the townhomes have some type of ocean views.  In general the units facing Palos Verdes Blvd have the best views, but they also deal with overlooking a fairly busy street.  Village-Palos-Verdes-MapUnits are either 2 or 3 bedrooms usualy with 3 baths and priced ranged in 2014-early 2015 between the mid to high $600,000s up to just under $800,000 for the larger homes with better views.   Each unit has a two car garage.  The complex had long been problematic in that the siding for all buildings had needed replacing for a very long time and the spector of a pending special assessment kept many buyers away.  The work has since been done and the complex looks fresh and appealing.  HOA fees are generally in the mid $400s but vary somewhat depending on the unit.  The complex offers two pools and is a short walk to the Village-Palos-Verdes-Viewsbeach, and has an abundance of shopping and dining nearby.  It’s an ideal location.

Now That’s a Big Number – North Redondo Townhome Sells at $1,290,000

By Keith Kyle1800-Pullman-Redondo

We are used to seeing big sales prices and rapidly rising values but the recent sale at 1800 Pullman Lane set the bar even higher.  1800 Pullman is a beautiful detached townhome that feels much more like a single family home as it sits on a corner lot which allows for the “fronts” of the 2 townhomes to be on different streets.  In addition the townhome was very large at over 3200 feet, but almost $1.3M for a townhome in North Redondo is still pretty hard to believe.

Redondo Housing Inventory Stays Low…So Where are the New Listings?

By Keith KyleHomes for sale in Torrance CA

As a Redondo Beach realtor who has been doing this a while, I’ve come to expect a nice increase in houses for sale in mid to late January. As the holidays wrap up, football season ends, and everyone gets back to work, we generally see a nice increase in homes that hit the market. It can often set the tone for much of the year as and abundance of homes early in the year often seems to stabilize the market one way or another. Unfortunately 2015 hasn’t seen that increase as the number of active homes for sale continues to go down at a time when the homes for sale should be going up. It’s still early enough that sellers may yet be holding off for a week or two to put their homes on the market and it would be welcome relief for the home buyers sitting and waiting.

The chart below shows the number of homes for sale represented by the light green bar. As of January 29th there are only 88 homes for sale in all of Redondo Beach.

And then there were 4 – New Listings on the Ocean Front Street of Paseo De La Playa

In this market with very low inventory and many homes selling the minute that they hit the market, it’s very unusual to see 4 homes for sale on the most sought after street in the Hollywood Riviera.QN-wide

The 4 homes for sale sit on the oceanfront street of Paseo De La Playa, just above Torrance Beach.  Many residents know the street as it offers great views and is a favorite of cyclists heading up to Palos Verdes.  2 of the homes, the palatial gated estate located at 433 Paseo De La Playa, and 617 Paseo De La Playa are on the west side of the street meaning unblocked and unblockable views of the ocean, Palos Verdes, and the coastline all the way to Malibu.  The primary reason they are still available is the pricetag with the sellers asking $16,000,000 for the home at 433 and the the home at 617 listed for $4,495,000 which is considerably higher than the most recent sales of similar homes.

The remaining 2 homes are fairly new to the market as of January 6th.  Both sit on the east side of the street so they offer minimal coastline views but are still ideally located with a short walk or bike ride to the beach and the Riviera Village.  The home at 630 Paseo De La Playa is a rather pricey $1,888,888 for 1325 square feet and minimal views.  It’s market as a potential site for a 2 story dream home but as the home is in the Torrance hillside overlay area that might be a very tall task.  The home for sale at 528 Paseo De La Playa is a bit more appropriately priced with almost 1800 square feet.
