We’ve tried to give you a variety of ways to search.  The easiest way is to sign up for free listing alerts.  We’ll do the work and there’s no obligation.  Sit back and receive listings to your email.  If you want to be more involved you can visit our home search page and search the MLS, search by price, search by type and more.

Generally speaking the seller pays the commissions to both the listing agent (representing seller) and the buyers agent.

The best way of finding an agent is by referral.  If you’ve had a friend or family member that had a exceptional experience with a realtor that’s a great start.  Reasearching online is also a very good way….look for activity level and read reviews and realtor testimonials.

There is no right or wrong answer to this as it depends on your situation.  Home ownership is always a great idea but there are times when it’s tough to be a buyer or the prices are at a peak.  Overall prices in the beach areas continually go up.  They may experience an occassional decrease in values like we saw around 2009 but even that was shortlived and prices are now dramatically higher than they were before the “peak” before the housing market “crashed”.

From a real estate perspective Redondo Beach is really broken into two fairly distinct areas…..north Redondo with a 90278 zip code and south Redondo with a 90277 zip code.  Prices are generally lower in north Redondo for similar homes.  There are several reasons….north Redondo sits behind both Manhattan and Hermosa Beach so it does not quite have the same beach feel to it.  South Redondo extends all the way to the sand so it feels closer to the beach….because it is.  In addition the housing is a bit denser in north Redondo and south Redondo offers a bit more sense of space dominated by wider tree lined streets often with ocean views.

The homes in the Hollywood Riviera have Redondo Beach mailing addresses and are in the 90277 zip code but are actually in the city of Torrance with Torrance schools and services.

Redondo Beach has some great schools K-12.  The test scores and ratings do vary from school to school but in general this is an award winning school district.

Definitely.  The ocean front and ocean view homes are only in South Redondo Beach.  Some of the highlight areas are the oceanfront condos of the Esplanade, the oceanview condos of The Village and Seascape and the many homes and townhomes east of PCH that enjoy some great ocean views.
