I work with many investors, developers, and investment-minded home buyers on a daily basis. One of the top questions I get asked is, “The South Bay is too expensive, where else can I buy for good future appreciation?” First off, you should never buy on appreciation unless you are an experienced investor and have capital that can handle speculation.

Following my recent post Ultra-High Priced South Bay Real Estate, today I plan to touch on more South Bay high-end luxury homes before we move into the thick of spring selling season. My reasoning?

These beach city properties offer great value today relative to the market and have very strong prospects for the future. 421 Via La Soledad in Redondo Beach This is one of the most compelling home buys of 2017. A probate sale that has not been touched for a very long time, however, the existing bones are terrific. And the views are amazing! I love this property because it is a 4-bedroom home below $1.3 million with $3 million views of the South Bay. This opportunity is perfect for a first-time home buyer or move-up buyer. Purchase the property now, refresh
