If you've been in the market for a South Redondo Beach townhouse within walking distance to RIviera Village, here's 2 new listings that you might want to buy.
464 Palos Verdes Blvd in the Village Palos Verdes complex (one of my favorite in the area) features spectacular ocean views (pictured). Here's what the listing agent states in the MLS:
"Best views in the complex from almost every room! Beautifully updated end unit 3 bed + 2.5ba with den + bonus room that could be 4th bdrm/media. Spacious open living room has ocean views, stunning Acacia hardwood floors, & travertine fireplace.

With 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 1905 sq ft, this townhome is listed at basically North Redondo prices in South Redondo Beach with the ocean views thrown in for free. I wouldn;t think about this for too long. $799,000. MLS 14741419.
If you are on a tighter budget but still want that walk to Riviera Village location, there's a great complex at 5924 S Pacific Coast Highway: Vista Del Parque. Don't be fooled by the address. I've sold there and it is far quieter than you might think. Unit # 25 is large 2 bedroom, 2 bath that is 1418 sq ft. Listing Broker is John Aaroe. Price is $538,800. MLS 14741611.

How much do homes sell for in Redondo Beach CA? Well that depends on whether you are thinking of buying in North or South Redondo Beach, what you are thinking of buying, how old the property is and in what condition and a variety of other factors. In general, consider $400K the entry point and $650,000-$850,000 the "sweet spot" with the greatest value and number of choices. While you can spend over $1M for a home in some Redondo Beach neighborhoods, for the most part there is a lot to choose from under $1 million. And if you go over $1M in Redondo Beach, you'll love what you can buy. (Mouse over any of the house icons above to view prices. Click to go to Socalistings.)
Therefore, most homes in Redondo Beach are less expensive than what you will find in Hermosa Beach and definitely more affordable than Manhattan Beach CA. Historically, Redondo Beach has been the least expensive of the Beach Cities. In the opinion of this writer, Redondo Beach offers some of the best coastal home values in LA County. In my Real Estate practice, I often work with buyers relocating either from the Westside or other parts of the country to Redondo Beach for the affordability, lifestyle, schools, and proximity to freeways, beaches, restaurants and other amenities.
Inventory of available housing for sale in Redondo Beach CA 90277-90278 has been low over the past 18 months and prices have increased, often substantially. Whether you are buying or selling Redondo Beach real estate it is imperative to work with a well connected local real estate agent who can best advise you as to the local market.
The least expensive homes in Redondo Beach are either relatively small condos or properties at the borders, ie Redondo Beach mailing address but in actuality Torrance (which isn't necessarily a bad thing either).
If you are looking to buy a small condo on a budget, you will most likely look at either Brookside Village or "The Village" in South Redondo Beach 90277. These are two entirely different complexes with "The Village" located just north of the Redondo Beach Pier at the ocean and Brookside Village further inland at the intersection of Prospect and Camino Real. Most of these units are flat "condo" style properties although both complexes do feature townhome style units as well.
These are great first time buyer properties and many have been retained as rental units after the owners move on to other homes. That not only makes these two complexes great affordable housing today, they are also great investment properties for the future.
Brookside Village (map right) is a massive sprawling complex with 385 units spread over 32 buildings. There are 2 tennis courts and 2 pools and the grounds have lush landscaping, fountains, and winding brooks, hence the name.
You can most likely find a 1 bedroom 1 bath unit, approximately 700 sq ft in the low to mid $300's. For a 2 bedroom units you are are more likely to pay over $400K. Add in HOA dues to that of about $400 month.
At "The Village" (pictured top) aka "The Village Condominiums and Townhomes" you can also find one bedroom condos in the $400K range and you will most likely have some ocean view or at least an ocean peak. Two bedroom units have recently sold for mid $500's and new listings of remodeled units are closer to $600K. Depending on which building you may be buying a condo in, HOA dues can be as high as $500 in some instances.
In North Redondo Beach 90278 you can still find 2 bedroom townhouse style condo units 900-1400 sq ft around $500K +/-. If you move to the mid $5's there are some smaller 3 bedrooms available. Many of these might back up to the power lines that run throughout MLS Area 151-152 or be on busier streets such as Grant or in the 2700 block and closer to Inglewood Ave. (Please note - there are also some 55+ age restricted building that may show up in lower price ranges.)
What you will almost certainly find is that many of the smaller units in North Redondo Beach are in larger complexes and they may have higher HOA dues (approximately $350 in some instances) than some of the larger and more expensive units we'll discuss below.At today's currently low interest rates, you can buy a lot more home for an extra $350 per month payment if you qualify.
One of the most common property types in North Redondo Beach is the 3 on a lot attached townhouse (pictured right). These are most commonly found on 7500 square foot (50*150) R-3 lots. There are probably about 1000 of these townhouses units throughout 90278 and the annual turnover is fairly high. While most of them are located in MLS Area 152 - VIllas South (of Artesia Blvd), you will find some in MLS Area 151 as well. North of Artesia Blvd they are located primarily east of Rindge Ave or on Mathews. (I have also seen a few of these in South Redondo Beach but there are far fewer.)
Three on a lot townhomes come in both 3 and 4 bedroom floorplans and can be anywhere from about 1500 sq ft up to slightly over 2000 sq ft for the newest 4 bedroom units. Expect to pay between $650-$750K for newer (post 1999) "A" or "C" units (front or rear) and slightly less for the middle or "B" units. The middle units tend to sell for a little bit less because they have 2 common walls and no yard.
Most of the newer projects have "exclusive use" front and rear yards. I have seen some older 3 on a lots where the rear yard is not designated as exclusive use. FYI, if you are buying a rear unit property please note that the "extra" parking space typically found near the rear unit is designated as a "guest" spot and is not meant for the exclusive use of the rear unit. Depending on the neighbors that rule may or may not be enforced.
Many of these 3 on a lots have "inactive" HOAs. That means that there are no formal meetings or monthly dues. What many homeowners do is simply split the bills as they come in (insurance, gardening, maintenance, etc.) If you are buying, my advice is to make sure that your lender understands and can accommodate this. Inactive HOAs are great as long as you have good neighbors and you do not need to make any major repairs (roof, common area). Some of the older units may not have water metered separately. Most will have individual trash cans but some will have the older "dumpster" style. Those are other considerations to take into account.
While some of these units were one off projects from builders who have long since come and gone, many were built by more known entities such as Casner and Powers (the two best in my opinion), Anastasi and Rich V.R. Some of the current active builders right now are being marketed by Merit Real Estate (Amir Amiri) and these are extremely well built with a very high grade finish work (pictured right).
What I am hearing from my builder associates is that there are very few R-3 lots left to develop. For my money, that makes most of these townhomes excellent investments because we probably will not be seeing many more new projects. As it currently stands, 3 on a lots are already some of the best deals in the Beach Cities.
I mentioned that 3 on a lot townhomes are available in 3 or 4 bedroom configurations. Probably over 90% of these units are "reverse flooplan" with the living room, dining, room, kitchen and master bedroom upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs. The 4 bedroom foorplan places a second bedroom upstairs and may or may not have a full second bathroom as well. There are a few "standard" floorplan 3 on a lot townhomes mostly found in MLS Area 152 and right around Perry Park. these were built by AGAR and have great upstairs space in the 'A" and "B" units but most buyers tend to find the downstairs somewhat cramped.
The other variation in 3 on a lot townhomes is whether the driveway is shared or there is direct access to the garage. The units on the East-West Streets have shared driveways (most common) while the North-South streets such as Felton, Phelan, Perkins, have direct access driveways.
We're just getting started in this series which will continue with further posts covering North vs South price comparisons and amenities, 2 on a lot attached and detached townhomes, the neighborhoods of Golden Hills and Hollywood Riviera, and Single Family Homes for Sale.
If you are in the market to buy a home in South Redondo Beach CA 90277, there are 16 open houses to see this Sunday February 16th 2014. Considering that there are only 48 homes for sale in the MLS in 90277 right now, that's pretty good availability for you to view. There's alos a good cross section of everything on the market ranging from the low $400's for a condo in Brookside Village and going to over $2M for a SFR on "The Avenues". Here's the list followed by some of my favorite picks.
431 Via Mesa Grande, Redondo Beach CA 90277: SFR in the Hollywood Riviera just listed. Here's what the listing agent says:
"This beautiful Queen's necklace view home in the Hollywood Riviera is a special estate. The sunny large corner lot is perched high above the neighborhood homes and boasts amazing ocean views from three levels. You can see the white water, the Hollywood sign and Eucalyptus trees from three decks and a large gated backyard. This home has been tastefully remodelled from top to bottom with gorgeous hardwood floors, crown moulding, fresh paint and new fixtures throughout. Stainless steel appliances and granite countertops are featured in the Kitchen which opens to a grand Living Room with tall coffered ceilings accentuated by a large wood burning fireplace. There is also a large ocean view Family Room that has a second wood burning fireplace and gorgeous hardwood floors. The Master Retreat is on its own private floor and is an unbelievable space with a seating area, an office space, a separate laundry room and a huge walk-in closet with organizers and an in-wall safe. The 3 bedrooms on the main level all have stunning hardwood floors. All 3 full bathrooms include jacuzzi tubs and have recently been remodeled. This home has many extras including two forced air heating zones, two laundry areas, a tankless water heater, and a large entertainment room."
If you are new to the area and not familiar with what we mean by Hollywood Riviera, Queen's Necklace etc, well a video is worth how many words?
Also in the Hollywood Riviera is a 2 bedroom condo at 163 Paseo de la Concha. It has been on the market for a while and was just reduced to $545,000. Considering the location I'm surprised it hasn't found a buyer looking for an alternative to "The Village". Here's what the listing agent states in the MLS:
"If you have been waiting for that perfect 2br starter unit in the "Hollywood Riviera" Redondo Beach Village area, stop by soon and say hello! This is a truly beautiful unit, recently updated and ready to move in! First floor for easy access. Spend your holiday in your condo at the beach! Yes this is a 2 Br / 2 ba unit. Quite building in a great neighborhood. Easy to show. Buyers will enjoy the quiet building and perfect location. walking distance to the Village, Shopping, Trader Joes and the ocean beach path!" MLS 13723083.
222 N Prospect Ave Unit A, Redondo Beach CA, 90277. Prospect is often a tough sell because it isa major North-South street with a lot of traffic. But if you can get a lot of space and an ocean view at an affordable price, it may well be worth the investment.
"Beautifully upgraded townhouse with an ocean view to match! This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom stunner is move in ready, great for professionals, roommates, family and entertaining. The property boasts 3 stories of high end finishes, maple hardwood floors, recessed lighting and a roof top deck with ocean view.

550 S Helberta Ave just hit the market a few days ago and all I can say is "wow". This 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom 4567 sq ft Single Family House was built in 1999 on a 6377 sq ft lot on one of my favorite streets in South Redondo Beach. This home offers great value compared to what the same investment would buy in Hermosa Beach or Manhattan Beach CA. Here's the description from the MLS:
"With its traditional, Mediterranean architecture, this exquisite, ocean view home elevates the laid back Redondo Beach living experience to that of a resort. High ceilings and arched windows allow for an abundance of natural light, while hardwood and travertine floors add to the overall spa-like energy. The giant master bedroom, with its luxurious bathroom— complete with Jacuzzi tub—and views of the lush backyard, truly creates a feeling of relaxed seclusion from the outside world. With 4 other bedrooms on the first floor and 1 on the second, this home leaves plenty of room for floor-planning creativity—if you want an office or gym, there’s plenty of room! To top it all off, a unique open layout upstairs, with kitchen, living room, and formal dining room all in view of each other, provides a warm, communal space. From this floor’s balconies, views of the glistening ocean can be enjoyed, an indicator of just how close this home is to the beach, restaurants, and shopping in the Riviera Village! In a highly desirable, quiet neighborhood, returning after a long day to this home will feel like a vacation!"

Delineated as area 128 in the MLS, Hollywood Riviera, or as the locals call it "the Riviera", includes properties in both South Torrance and South Redondo Beach. To confuse matters even more, many of these homes have Redondo Beach 90277 mailing addresses but are in Torrance. Think of it as the Beach Cities version of BHPO (Beverly Hills Post Office). And, speaking of post offices, that's where the confusion started. Way back when, the Redondo Beach PO was closer and it was more expedient for residents in the original Riviera homes so they requested that their mail go to 90277 from which it was delivered to their homes.
But, that's not where we're at today. What's going on right now is that there are both Torrance and Redondo Beach properties with the true Redondo Beach homes typically selling for more (but not always). The Redondo Beach side tends to have the homes right along the beach and with really good views while the Torrance side has some of the less desirable locations which brings the values down. For the most part, the lowest priced homes are almost always found on the Torrance side and the most expensive homes are almost always found on the Redondo Beach side. Be that as it may, some homes on the Torrance side have amazing city lights and coastline views but it is rarer.
In the area around Riviera Village, there are a number of townhouses and condos. But as you go higher up in the Riviera typically you are going to find only single family homes. You'll find everything from original 1300 or so sq ft homes to new construction mansions over 3000 sq ft.
Here's what's currently for sale in the Hollywood Riviera neighborhood. Call me at 310 975 5139 for more information, to make an offer or to buy or sell Redondo Beach or Torrance Real Estate.
