Home Staging Tips for Redondo Beach Homes

Home staging is an important part of the preparation process when selling a house.  Whether fully staging the home using a professional stager, or simply de-cluttering and adding something to the owners current furniture, staging can make the difference between a home selling quickly and sitting on the market.  Here are a few pointers to help prepare your Redondo Beach home for sale.  If you have given any thought to selling your home in Torrance or the South Bay, we can help.  Contact us for information on how we sell homes or find the value of your home in Redondo Beach CA.

Why Do Homeowners Remodel?

Most homeowners choose to remodel their homes in order to update and upgrade their home. There are many other reasons and a recent study shows the many reasons below.

Are Contingent Offers Starting to Be a Workable Strategy?

By Keith Kyle

In the past two months I’ve had three contingent offers accepted.  Not only were the offers accepted but my clients homes were not even on the market yet.  I spent much of 2017 submitting contingent offers for these clients only to be rejected time and time again.  Often times we were competing against 15-20 other offers and some were all cash….we didn’t have a chance.

So is that changing?

It may just be timing, luck or the right situation, but sellers seem to be considering contingent offers in the current Redondo Beach real estate market.  It’s key to submit a VERY strong offer in regards to price and terms, but sellers may be realizing that the buyer’s homes will likely sell fairly quickly.

For those that don’t know what a contingent offer is…..there are many situations in which a home buyer needs to sell their home to have enough money for the down payment and to qualify for the loan.  When you submit an offer that requires the buyer to sell their home to make it work…that’s a contingent offer.  It adds a whole additional level of uncertainty to the sellers of the home being purchased.  No longer is their just a home inspection, appraisal and loan on their house……but likely a home inspection, appraisal, and loan on the buyers sale as well.  The uncertainty is the reason most sellers won’t consider it unless it’s the only option.

In a sellers market with multiple offers and high demand, getting a contingent offer accepted is a long shot at best, but maybe the recent wave of acceptances is a sign that things are changing slightly.

Is $1.5M for New Construction Townhomes in North Redondo the New Normal?

Something none of us thought possible seems to be happening in North Redondo. We were amazed when prices of new construction two on a lot detached townhomes reached topped $1,000,000 in 2014, again  when they hit $1.2M mark in 2015….we were again surprised when it started topping $1.3M…and here we are in 2018 with a new construction townhome listed and priced over $1.5M!  1729 Harriman #A offers 4 bedroom and 2551 square feet which is pretty standard.  The rear unit was listed at the same number and is actually in escrow so we may just be heading to a $1.5M+ market.  Unbelievable.  Contact us for more information.

While most new construction townhomes in North Redondo Beach have been pricing in the mid $1.3M to $1.4M these new homes on Harriman just may set the new standard.  It seems unlikely but we’ve said that before.  Only time will tell.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # SB17280661 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.
