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.

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.
