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:

Welcome to this spectacular, brand new contemporary craftsman home in the heart of Golden Hills. 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. The luxurious master bathroom has a contemporary soaking tub, large rain shower, and skylight. There are three other bedrooms upstairs, two sharing a jack-and-jill bathroom, and the other with en-suite bathroom and balcony.

The Rare Foreclosure in Redondo Beach – 1832 Rockefeller

The foreclosure market, including bank owned homes, bank auctions and short sales, has slowed to a trickle in Redondo Beach during 2016.  It’s rare to see a single “distressed” listing these days whereas the peak of the housing crises saw consistent double digit numbers of homes on the market with an underwater seller.  To see all of the foreclosures in the South Bay click here.

Although distressed listings are rare (and usually not much of a “deal”) there has been a recent listing that has come on the market in North Redondo Beach.  1832 Rockefeller Lane #8 is a bank owned (REO) 4 bedroom townhome priced at $715,500.  See the details below and contact Redondo Beach realtor Keith Kyle for more information or a private showing.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # IV17011148 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.

Goodbye 2016…Hello 2017 – What 2017 Holds in Store for Redondo Beach Real Estate

By Keith Kyle

2016 was a very strong year for real estate in Redondo Beach and the South Bay.  Foreclosures and short sales slowed to a trickle, home prices rose throughout the year, demand continued to rise and Redondo Beach continued to be a highly sought after community.  Redondo Beach saw over 985 homes selling with an average price of over $1,000,000.

So what’s in store for the Redondo Beach real estate market in 2017?  With interest rates still low and pent up demand still outweiging the current inventory, it looks to be more of the same.  Prices are at peak levels and interest rates have risen slightly which may cool things off just a bit but the demand is strong for homes in this coastal community.  Visit the Redondo Beach real estate market statistics to keep up with the latest trends.

It’s a challenge to find single family homes in North Redondo

For buyers looking for single family homes in North Redondo Beach they really have two options.  The Golden Hills area which is primarily made up of long and narrow homes we call “tall and skinnies”, the TRW tract which is a bit further east but offers a charming neighborhood setting with smaller homes on larger lots, and a pocket in the southeast corner called El Nido.  But in between the two neighborhoods sits a pretty large area and single family homes are hard to find.

One of the reasons is that the lots are often large enough for a duplex, triplex or multiple townhomes.  If there’s a smaller single family home on the large lot, it often gets sold to a builder that will knock it down and replace it with multiple townhomes.  It’s not the greatest way to keep things charming, but makes financial sense for the seller and buyer.

If your Redondo Beach home search is focused on north Redondo single family homes, you’re generally limited to the areas in red on the below map.  Contact us for more information or to search the homes for sale in the area.
