With the median price of Single Family homes in Redondo Beach now firmly fixed over $1M, let's face it, many people are simply priced out of what previously was considered an affordable beach market. Or at least affordable compared to Manhattan or Hermosa Beach SFRs.
I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't share some ideas with you, particularly since it is another one of my listings I just sold and another home my team represented the Buyer on. Yes, I do have business outside of Redondo Beach although RB is about half of my sales and listings.
