Redondo Beach House

Homes for sale in Redondo Beach are highly desirable as Redondo Beach has been one of the hottest coastal markets for the last few years.

Buyers can find properties for sale in many price ranges from entry level condos to multi million dollar ocean view luxury mansions. Sellers have seen substantial price appreciation over the past few years and many are staying in their homes creating an ongoing shortage of listings for sale.

Recently Redondo Beach was voted one of the ten best places to live in California and it is easy to understand why. With great beachfront, top ranked schools, proximity to freeways and jobs, shopping, entertainment, easy access to LAX, fine restaurants and more, Redondo Beach represents the quintessential California lifestyle. 

Redondo Beach is comprised of North Redondo Beach 90278 and South Redondo Beach 90277. While both are Redondo Beach home prices are different enough to merit separate treatment of each zip code.

The primary difference is that South Redondo Beach has ocean view homes and direct beach access while North Redondo does not.

North Redondo Beach is landlocked as it is bound on its western borders by Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach the other two Beach Cities. There are a limited number of homes with mountain and city views.

The dividing line between North and South Redondo Beach is 190th St with North Redondo being north of 190th and South on the other side. PCH refers to Pacific Coast Highway which is not a highway at all although it is a very busy road. Many businesses are located on PCH in South Redondo.

South Redondo Beach has a very desirable town center known as Riviera Village. Homes within walking distance to Riviera Village may sell at a premium to similar properties in other parts of town.

North Redondo really doesn't have a similar center of focus although there is a business district on Artesia Blvd as well as Aviation. The South Bay Galleria Mall is located at the eastern border of North Redondo Beach adjacent to Lawndale and Torrance. The Galleria recently lost their anchor tenant, Nordstroms and it is rumored the property will undergo massive changes as a result that could enhance property values. Similarly the Redondo Beach waterfront in South Redondo will see revitalization over the next few years.

What North and South Redondo definitely share are the cooling ocean breezes.

Selling a Home in Redondo Beach

Although homes for sale in Redondo Beach CA have been in high demand for the past few years and this trend is likely to continue, it takes more than a yard sign and an open house or two to sell your home.

While over half of the listings may go into escrow in the first 30 days or less and sell for over the asking price, often by tens of thousands of dollars, it takes the right strategy to achieve that result and an experienced local agent to guide the way.

For example, to sell for the highest price, homes have to be properly presented, priced, and marketed. That means high resolution professional photos, 3D and standard video, staging, and being realistic as to timing and listing price.
