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.
July was a crazy month throughout the South Bay with double digit year over year percentage changes in most of the cities. There was no real rhyme or reason to it with some cities way up and others way down. Redondo Beach real estate was one of the exceptions to the massive percentage changes with a very modest 6% increase in home prices over July of 2016. Overall Redondo Beach saw 95 home sales with a median price of $975,000.
