Golden Hills Redondo Beach Home Prices on the Rise | Seller's Market

Redondo Beach Golden Hills Home Prices have increased

Redondo Beach Real Estate has seen substantial price acceleration over the past 18 months and many homes are now selling at or even above previous market highs. One of the neighborhoods experiencing the largest price gains in the Redondo Beach Golden Hills (designated as MLS Area 154 to Realtors). Appraisers are struggling to keep up with what appears to be new highs every week.

Follow this link for an instant automated valuation for your home!

The graph above captures data for the standard 3 bedroom Tall and Skinny on a 2500 SqFt lot. Within that segment there are obvious variations based on age, updates and whether the property has 2 or 2.5 baths (even though I am seeing 2 bathroom floorplans often selling at similar prices to 2.5). Homes on larger lots or some of the 3 story over 2000 SqFt properties have different pricing models.

If you are selling a home in the Golden Hills, currently the "Gold Standard" (no pun intended, lol) is to price right at or slightly below the market in order to get multiple offers over the asking price.

That's how I recently marketed my listing at 1719 Dixon St.

Golden Hills Tall and Skinny sold for over list price
This property received a ton of activity, multiple offers, and was quickly in escrow and sold for $81,000 over the asking price.

Here's some other Golden Hills data you might find useful.

Redondo Beach CA Real Estate for Sale | LA Times Home of the Week

Listed for Sale in Redondo Beach CA by Ellis Posner - Teles Properties

I am a huge fan of modern, contemporary, steel and glass architectural homes. And we certainly do not see enough of them in the South Bay Beach Cities and Redondo Beach. Well that might be changing somewhat as more and more buyers gravitate from out of state and LA Westside to the South Bay.

I was very excited about the opportunity to list this extremely unique property which is one of the largest homes built at the beach and one of the most unique. My marketing plan always included PR and media coverage and I was very proud when the LA Times selected this home to be the "Home of the Week" in the July 19th online and print editions.

Real Estate Agent Ellis Posner Sells Redondo Beach Homes

There were 47 closed sales in North Redondo Beach CA during October. Four of those were my listings and I also represented one buyer.

Selling prices in 90278 ranged from $360,000 up to $1,425,000. My sales were priced from $649,000 up to $1,079,000 with an average sales price of $812,750 compared to $782,461 as the average for the market for the month.

One of my sales, 2117 Huntington Lane Unit A, was a 4 bedroom 2750 sq ft attached townhouse that sold for $1,079,000 at the high end of North Redondo Beach home prices. I also sold an attached rear unit 3 on a lot 4 bedroom townhouse at 2411 Carnegie Lane Unit C for $808,000 which is at the higher end of resale attached townhomes. Both units were built 2005-2007 by Casner Construction proving that an investment in higher end building holds value. Both properties were maintained in excellent like new condition.

Three of my four sales sold at or above the MLS list price and 3 out of 4 sold in 30 days or less. Three of the sales were townhomes and one was a SFR in the TRW Tract on an over 8,000 sq ft lot.

Three of my sellers were able to get a FREE leaseback after the close of escrow to help accommodate their moves.
