Big Home Sale in the Golden Hills – 1107 Goodman

One of the recent sales that represented a very big number for North Redondo and the Golden Hills was the sale at 1107 Goodman.  Listed for $1,890,000 the home quickly sold at full price after just 5 days on the market.  Sitting on an oversized, 5,215 foot, lot (more than double the normal lot in the area) this was brand new construction and something very hard to duplicate in this neighborhood.  Listed by Aaron Klapper of Strand Hill Christies International this was definitely a trophy house.  Per the listing description:

The living room invites you in with soaring ceilings, lots of windows, and the first of three stunning stack-stone fireplaces. The open concept leads to the formal dining area, perfect for warmly entertaining family and friends. There’s an elegant powder room, and guest suite with built-in closet cabinetry and en-suite bathroom. Moving towards the rear of the home, the stylish kitchen has a large center island with quartz counter-tops, prep sink, and drawer microwave. The deep stainless steel farmhouse sink, soft close drawers, Thermador six burner stove and hood, butler’s pantry, walk-in pantry, and breakfast nook lend to this kitchen being as functional as it is chic. The comfortable family room with fireplace has large sliding glass doors that effortlessly lead to the peaceful back yard, creating that indoor/outdoor lifestyle you crave. Head upstairs to find the serene master suite with vaulted ceiling, fireplace, multiple closets, and large sunny balcony.

417 Paseo De La Playa – Once In a Lifetime Property in the Hollywood Riviera

While the price is staggering for this are of the South Bay, there’s no disputing that the home (s) being sold at 417 Paseo De La Playa are pretty incredible.  The lots along Paseo De La Playa are already huge as they extend all the way to the beach but in this case there’s not one, but two separate parcels for sale.  What also makes this compound type property unique is the beach access.  It can take years to go through the California coastal process of trying to get beach access and it’s often denied.  In this case there’s not only beach access but a private volleyball court!  Here’s information from listing agent Chris Adlam of Vista Sotheby’s International.

With over 62,000 square feet of beach-front property on TWO SEPARATE PARCELS, this dramatic compound is almost impossible to duplicate. The main house (417 Paseo de la Playa) is over 10,000 square feet of exquisite living area, and the “companion house” (421 Paseo de la Playa) has over 5,500 square feet. Both homes are located behind gated entrances, both with direct access to the sand, a spectacular pool & spa, a private sand volleyball court, and a large yard. The views span from Palos Verdes through the beach cities, including the entire Santa Monica Bay.

The Changing Face of Paseo De La Playa in the Hollywood Riviera

For lack of a more refined way of putting it….Paseo De La Playa in the Hollywood Riviera is probably one of the coolest streets in the South Bay.  With enormous lots that extend all the way to the sand at Torrance Beach, panoramic ocean views and stunning queens necklace views, these homes offer it all.  Unlike the beachfront homes of the Manhattan and Hermosa Strand, homes on the west side of Paseo De La Playa offer stunning ocean and coastline views by day, stunning sunsets in the evening and incredible ocean/city lights at night.  Most of the homes along the street were tract type houses built in the 1970s with very much a Brady Bunch look and feel.  That’s all changed in the last few years with 7 of the homes having extreme makeovers.  See the current homes for sale on Paseo De La Playa in the Hollywood Riviera.

So How Do I Find Out About Off Market and Pocket Listings in Redondo Beach?

In the incredibly competitive Redondo Beach real estate market many homes are not even making it to the local MLS.   Some of these homes quietly get sold without the general public even knowing that they were for sale.  So how do you find out about these homes?  First it’s important to understand just what we’re talking about.

What does off market or a pocket listing mean?

It can actually mean a few different things but in general, when we refer to homes sold off market or pocket listings these are homes that are never put on the MLS and therefore unknown to most buyers and many realtors.  That means that searching the Redfins and Zillows of the world may mean that you’re not aware of these types of opportunities.

Why would a Redondo Beach home seller want to sell the home off market?

In general it’s not a great idea.  Fewer buyers that know about the home usually means less competition and ultimately a lower sales price.  That’s certainly not always the case but usually accurate to some extent.  Sellers have many reasons for not wanting to put their home on the market.  It may be due to privacy reasons such as not wanting the neighbor or even the tenant know that the home is for sale.  It may be that they don’t want to deal with some of the hassles that come along with listing a home…..buyer’s and agents that want to show the home at all hours, open houses on the weekends and more people simply curious with few legitimate buyers.  Whatever the reason it does limit the exposure and again usually limits the price.

That’s why it can be a good opportunity for buyers….less competition, fewer bidding wars which generally leads to a lower sales price.

How do I find out about these homes in Hermosa Beach?

Unlike the MLS listings, off market, upcoming and pocket listings are much more elusive.  The key is to work with an agent that has deep connections in the community and market.  Some of the top realtors in certain areas may share information on these hard to find opportunities and the larger or more numerous the seller and agent networks, the more information the agent can obtain.

We are happy to help you find off market homes but this requires a good deal of work, considerable communication with sellers and agents and a readiness to act should the right home come available.  If you would like us to help find off market opportunities and you are not currently working with a realtor please feel free to text us at 310-251-2344 or email us with the details of your home search.
