West Torrance Real Estate For Sale

 

West Torrance real estate is coveted because of its renowned public school district, coastal breezes, manicured homes, shopping epicenters and close location to the beach communities of Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach in the Greater South Bay Area of Los Angeles.

If you are thinking about buying a home in West Torrance, there is an abundance of recreational and cultural opportunities that await. With so many attractions in the South Bay area, many tourists miss the hidden gem of Torrance and Redondo (RAT) Beach, 1.5 sandy miles offering some of the most scenic escapes of South Bay real estate.

West Torrance real estate is also renowned for its public parks, totaling no less than 40. Perhaps most notably is the 44-acre Wilson Park, where you can experience a bit everything from a gymnasium, a treehouse, barbeque pits, walking course, fish pond, a roller hockey rink, batting cages, a bustling farmers market, softball fields and even a miniature train ride for the kids.

One of the biggest considerations when buying South Bay real estate is the quality of schools, and West Torrance schools get an A+ grade. If you purchase a house in West Torrance, your children will be enrolled in one of the top rated schools in California. It has an impressive history of students moving onto graduate degrees.

Redondo Beach Homes For Sale

 

Looking for Redondo Beach Homes For Sale? You found the Right Place! The beach, the warm sun and its laid back lifestyle have made Redondo Beach, California one of the most sought-after cities in the South Bay real estate market. In recent years, the prices of homes for sale in Redondo Beach have been on the uptick, as buyers from neighboring beach communities have looked for other options. The median home value in Redondo Beach is $920,000, an increase of 7.8% year to date and the prices of homes for sale in Redondo Beach are expected to climb another 1.7% within the next 12 year.

Although this is technically a seller’s market, it doesn’t feel like it. Perhaps you noticed all of the signs in the yard and open houses. At Xavier & Xavier, so have we. With so many homes for sale in Redondo Beach on one hand and rising market prices on the other, what is at play?

The obvious trend is that rising prices have enticed home owners to list their home, but market demand has not kept up pace with homeowners attempting to capitalize on the upswing. In other words, more homeowners arrived at the price that motivated them to start packing.

Then, a dose of reality set in, as buyers seeking homes for sale in Redondo Beach suddenly had more opportunities to choose from. The negotiations returned to a more level playing field with many homes not selling at or over the asking price.

Today, sellers face the risk of downward pressure on price if more inventory hits the market. For buyers, there is the looming possibility of higher interest rates, preventing them from affording the current or slightly reduced prices of homes for sale in Redondo Beach.

The market is always changing, but overall, the conditions are ideal right now whether you are buying or selling, and Sam and Bindu Xavier, Realtors with RE/MAX Estate Properties looks forward to exceeding your real estate expectations. ca dre #01449986 & 01818247.

It is crucial to inspect your new house before you are handed the keys to know exactly the current condition and any repairs that are needed. You should also know where the property lines are located and this will prevent any future disputes with your neighbors. Additionally, get a preliminary title report and look to see if there are any liens or back taxes owed on the property. All liens including tax, mortgage and trust deeds need to be re-conveyed prior to transferring ownership when your escrow closes.

Do Not Attempt Timing the Market in Redondo Beach

Do not make it an obsession to time the local real estate market for the best time to ourchase your next home. It is hard to predict the highs and lows of the local housing market. The ideal time for buying a house is when you find your dream home and are able to afford it! The real estate market is unpredictable and you cannot anticipate when the price of properties for sale in Redondo Beach will go up or down… So instead of trying to time the market, devote your time to hiring an experienced Realtor to represent you with your purchase and your agent will be very instrumental in locating good values on local houses, townhomes or condos for sale in Redondo Beach and inform you of the best public schools and locations for you to live and raise your family.

Bigger is not always Better in Redondo Beach

Large numbers of people are drawn towards big houses. But when it comes to the purchase of your home, bigger is not always better…You should not buy the biggest Redondo Beach house in a neighborhood of smaller homes. This is due to the fact that market values of the smaller houses will ultimately bring down the value of the bigger houses in the neighborhood…When you plan to resell, there will be limited pool of buyers willing to pay above market prices for your mansion in the land of smaller houses.

Do not purchase your next Redondo Beach home on the basis of emotion…

If you purchase your next Redondo Beach home on the basis of your emotions, you are sure to make some bad financial decisions. Always remember the fact that buying a home is making the biggest investment of your life. So, it is crucial to make your decision after much considerations and analysis of your living and buying needs.

About RBEF: The Redondo Beach Education Foundation was formed in 1991 by a group of concerned parents and community leaders. They realized that an excellent school system could not rely on state funding alone and set out on a mission to lift the level of education for all Redondo Beach students. With an all-volunteer staff, RBEF was able to increase annual funds raised each year. Poised to reach the million dollar mark in 2012, RBEF brought on its first staff member, Dr. Danielle Allphin, as a part-time Executive Director to assist the volunteer board and maximize the organization’s growth and potential. RBEF continues to Raise the Tide with community-based fundraising that brings much-needed financial support to each Redondo Beach public school. Our fund-raising efforts have a deeper impact than many people realize. For the 2014-2015 school year, we will be giving approximately $1M to support the district in providing invaluable opportunities for students in science, music, arts, counseling, and college preparation. These funds will sustain programs implemented in the 2013-2014 school years and will bring additional programs and teachers to raise the tide for Redondo Beach students. Children are born learners and thrive in an environment where they can connect with each other, their teachers, and their school communities and schools have the right resources for teaching and learning. We want to continue our mission but need your support more than ever before. Please help us by donating and joining RBEF’s efforts to raise the tide for all children in RBUSD.

South Redondo May 2013 Real Estate Market Update

We have more inventory going into the second quarter. As of May 8, 2013 we have 37 active SFR’s on the market ranging from $655K- $2.995M. 12 active townhouses ranging from $650K – $1.799M and 11 condo’s ranging from $460K-$869K. Prices are continuing to rise each month. There were only 7 closed SFR’s in April and were all standard equity sales. 13 townhomes closed and all were standard sales.  There were 9 condo’s that sold, 8 being standard sales and 1 Probate Sale.  As you can see distressed sales are now non existent. Average days on the market for SFR’s were 31 days down from 41 days on the market, townhouses 41 days significantly down from 68 days and Condos, 56 days down from 81 days on the market in March 2013. As you can see time to market is much lower than previous months this year and we are continuing to see multiple offers over asking price on most all South Redondo properties!

We are currently in a seller’s market and we still have a shortage of housing inventory in South Redondo Beach. If you are considering listing your home for sale please contact Xavier and Xavier for a free custom market analysis to get your home listed and sold quickly and smoothly!  Thank You, Sam and Bindu Xavier, Your South Redondo Real Estate Specialists.
