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

By Keith Kyle

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.

 

Hermosa Beach Pending Home Sales Reach 5 Year High

Hermosa Beach has long been one of the more sought after coastal communities with demand for homes in the small beach community always high.  Recent market conditions have created an even greater demand as inventory of active home listings has continued to decline while the few homes available quickly go into escrow.  The 31 homes in escrow or “pending” in June of 2013 is the highest number since 2007 and is helping drive prices up as demand continues to soar.

June saw 37 active MLS listings and homes for sale, 31 pending home sales and 18 closed escrows or sold homes. Visit our home sales page to see the homes sold in June 2013 and prices for the sold homes.  According to long time Hermosa Beach resident and top real estate agent Keith Kyle with South Bay Brokers, “This is an almost ideal climate for sellers with the usual summer demand in full effect due to buyers looking for homes in the Hermosa Beach school district, low inventory, historically low interest rates and prices continuing to rise.

Inventory, Home Sales, Pendings and Prices All Rising in Golden Hills of Redondo Beach

Unlike the adjacent neighborhoods of Manhattan and Hermosa Beach, the real estate market in the Golden Hills of Redondo Beach, just east of Hermosa has been somewhat unique in recent months.  Everything seems to be on the rise with the number of active homes for sale increasing, sales increasing, pending home sales increasing and prices on the rise.  The area is home to a rather unique type of single family home known as a “tall and skinny” in the local real estate world.  With lots dimensions at 25 x 100 and minimal setback requirements, most homes are only separated by 5 feet and is something not seen in many other neighborhoods. Read more about the pros and cons of Golden Hills Real Estate.  According to Redondo Beach real estate specialist Keith Kyle, “we’re seeing homes selling over list price, with multiple offers on a fairly regular basis and prices have rebounded considerably in 2013.”
