Redondo Housing Inventory Stays Low…So Where are the New Listings?

By Keith KyleHomes for sale in Torrance CA

As a Redondo Beach realtor who has been doing this a while, I’ve come to expect a nice increase in houses for sale in mid to late January. As the holidays wrap up, football season ends, and everyone gets back to work, we generally see a nice increase in homes that hit the market. It can often set the tone for much of the year as and abundance of homes early in the year often seems to stabilize the market one way or another. Unfortunately 2015 hasn’t seen that increase as the number of active homes for sale continues to go down at a time when the homes for sale should be going up. It’s still early enough that sellers may yet be holding off for a week or two to put their homes on the market and it would be welcome relief for the home buyers sitting and waiting.

The chart below shows the number of homes for sale represented by the light green bar. As of January 29th there are only 88 homes for sale in all of Redondo Beach.

Where Have all the Ocean Front and Ocean View Condos Gone?

Although the housing inventory has been low in Redondo Beach for almost 2 years now, the market for oceanfrontRedondo Beach condos for sale Esplanade and ocean view Village condos is almost non-existent. Popular condo complexes such as The Village, the Seascape buildings, and various oceanfront buildings on the Esplanade are nowhere near the normal inventory levels. According to realtor Keith Kyle, “It’s really been months since there’s been anything new. There are currently a few places that have been on the market for some time now, but the few new listings, if priced anywhere near where they should be, disappear quickly.”

“These homes offer the iconic South Bay beach lifestyle and are are highly sought after, often by professionals that travel extensively, local retired or semi-retired people looking for that vacation beach feel, or those priced out of nearby townhomes and single family homes.”

Seascape-1-PoolThe inventory has continued to drop to nearly a trickle with only 2 condos on the market as of this writing.  Both are in the Seascape buildings behind King Harbor and the Redondo Pier area.  The homes often offer the real feel of living on vacation as many have great views and some offer terrific amenities.

Sorry, but we couldn't find any results in the MLS that match the specified search criteria.
