Although median prices in a luxury market such as the Hermosa Beach sand section can vary dramatically due to one or two oceanfront home listings on The Strand, the median home prices for active listings has reached record highs. The sand section of Hermosa Beach is the area closest to the ocean and is bordered by Manhattan Beach to the north, the streets of Valley/Ardmore to the east, and Redondo Beach to the south. There are numerous housing options ranging from magnificent Strand homes, to “walkstreet” homes with an alley in the back but a pedestrian only sidewalk in the front, to endless ocean view condos, townhomes and single family. In general prices are higher north of Pier Avenue.
According to local realtor and Hermosa Beach resident Keith Kyle with South Bay Brokers “the homes active on the market are almost all exclusively very high end luxury homes and we’ve reach a median home price never seen before.” The current median home price for all types of active homes is at $3,749,000. This in a town where the median prices have hovered in the $1.1M-$1.2M in general for the past few years. There are many factors at the moment including a number of ocean front homes including 2666 The Strand, an oceanfront estate priced at a whopping $15,900,000 (incredibly it was raised from it’s original $13,900,000), 718 The Strand at $6,300,000 and 5 other homes priced over $4.0M with 3 walkstreet homes for sale.
