Gated community of Fusion South Bay

It’s a Frenzy in Fusion South Bay Real Estate Market

By Keith Kyle

**please note that this post was from 2015**

The torrid home market in Fusion South Bay continues to amaze with any new listing being quickly snatched up and almost all of the recent sales having multiple offers and selling for well over the asking price.  Since the beginning of October there have been 3 closed sales with my “A” unit listing listed at $530,000 and selling for $547,000, a “B” unit listed at $519,000 and closing at $545,000 and a “D” model with no upgrades listed at $585,000 and selling at $611,000.  Those are fairly astounding numbers and the trend shows no sign of slowing down.  Currently there are 5 units in escrow and all scheduled to close at very large and above previous peak numbers.  What makes Fusion townhomes so highly sought after is the combination of affordability for the location (just east of Manhattan Beach, gated community living, recent construction (2006 and 2007) and all of the features that come along with it, and the highly rated Wiseburn School District.

Hollyglen Hawthorne Real Estate Not Much of a Secret Anymore

By Keith Kyle

I’ve often told my clients that Hollyglen, a small pocket of Hawthorne that sits west of the 405 and north of Rosecrans, is a great alternative to Redondo Beach and Torrance.  It’s long been somewhat of a secret and even locals hadn’t heard of it.  One of the key things that changed that was the advent of the Wiseburn School District, a highly rated charter school system with very high test scores and some of the nicest campuses in all of the South Bay.

I’ve always liked Hollyglen as it has a very “West Torrance” type of feel with tree lined streets, homes that are well kept and updated, schools and parks within walking distance and a somewhat private feel due to the location.  Another aspect that makes it even more appealing is the proximity to freeways, major employers including Mattel, Chevron, Northrup and a number of other aerospace companies.

Recent home prices indicate that the secret is clearly out.  What had recently been a lower priced alternative to Torrance and even north Redondo, now is priced at similar numbers.  Recent sales show that the target prices for sellers is around $900 for an entry level single family.  There are occassional “deals” but those often receive multiple offers and end up well over list price.

Most homes in the neighborhood range between 1100 sq ft and 1400 sq feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.  Most have been nicely updated but still have that original beach bungalow charm.

East Manhattan Beach homes for sale

Hollyglen in Hawthorne CA – Great Alternative to Homes in Redondo Beach

Welcome to The Hollyglen and Del Air neighborhoods of Hawthorne

By Keith Kyle

The neighborhoods of Hollyglen and Del Aire, located in Hawthorne CA,  are a fantastic option for those who find themselves priced out of the Redondo Beach real estate market. Employees of the surrounding industrial parks such as Hughes, Aerospace, Honeywell, Northrop, Xerox, are also attracted to the short commute to work. To the rest of California, even to many South Bay residents, the area of Hollyglen and Del Aire is a well-kept secret.

Lying to the east of Manhattan Beach and south of El Segundo, Hollyglen is bounded on the north by El Segundo Boulevard, on the south by Rosecrans Avenue, on the east by the San Diego Freeway and on the west by Aviation Boulevard.

Fusion townhomes show just how the market has changed

Often when we look at the broader world of the real estate market it’s hard to notice just how dramatic a shift can be. It’s equally amazing just how quickly we forget the market we just left…as if we’ll never be back. I focus much of my attention in terms of marketing, selling and blogging about a small gated community in the Hollyglen known as Fusion South Bay. It’s just a pocket of newer townhomes in the South Bay but nowhere have I seen a more drastic turnaround and the implications it has had. I sold a few units at the height of the market and have struggled with the fact that values went down so dramatically and so quickly. As they were constructed in 2005-2007 almost every buyer was truly buying at the peak of the market. The result was a % of short sales and foreclosures not seen anywhere else in the area. Less than a year ago almost 75% of the closed sales were short sales and values plummeted. I showed most of them and, at the time, I almost felt as though you couldn’t give them away….no buyer motivation, no sense of urgency and most of those buyers are probably now kicking themselves. It was truly a buyers market.

Just a year later and oh how the real estate world has changed. Units that had been in the low $300,000s are now in the mid to high $400,000s and buyers are lining up for the next owner that decides to sell.   At the moment the one 2 bedroom home for sale, the smallest floor plan in Fusion, is listed at the same price that a 3 bedroom sold for just a year earlier.  Those clients that had bought a few years back are once again looking good and those that didn’t purchase at the bottom when they had the chance are certainly wishing they had. In one short year this micro market has gone from barely being able to give away these townhomes, to having buyers and agents eagerly searching off market for the chance to own one.

My how quickly things change and how quickly we forget where we just were.

Hollyglen Real Estate Sales way up and Inventory On the Rise

Hollyglen Real Estate UpdateLuxury primary bedroooms

One of the best kept secrets in the South Bay is the neighborhood of Hollyglen, a small pocket of Hawthorne just west of the 405 freeway.  The neighborhood has it’s own award-winning school district and has a friendly and quiet feel that rivals the Torrance neighborhoods of Southwood and West Torrance.  The biggest challenge for buyers over the past few months has been the lack of inventory and quickly rising prices.  That may be changing, however, with a significant increase in the available homes.  At the moment there are 7 single family homes available in the Hollyglen and Del Aire areas (all west of the 405 which has significant value differences from the area east of the 405) and a whopping 17 homes currently in escrow.  This in a market that has recently seen only a trickle of available homes.  If you’re open for expanding your search consider other homes for sale in Hawthorne CA.   Below are the current listings as of May 7th 2013.  For the most up to date list visit our Hollyglen real estate site.
