We'll email you our quarterly South Bay Real Estate Report.

Some of the most desirable real estate in all of the South Bay, maybe even all of Los Angeles County, exists atop the Palos Verdes (P.V.) bluffs. The combination of privacy, big views, and the sound of waves crashing is virtually unmatched in Southern California. A majority of these bluff top homes are located in Lunada Bay. That said, Malaga Cove, West Palos Verdes, and even the Palos Verdes (P.V.) Drive South areas have a few fabulous bluff properties to offer from time to time. 2017 Bluff Sales Probably the most fruitful year of recent memory for bluff sales was 2017. The old Toyota Motor Sales home that had been owned by the company since 1988

New construction town homes in North Redondo are always an asset class I keep my eye on because they can tell you where this market is headed through strength of sales and price growth. Today, I will be doing my semi-annual check in with this section of the market known as MLS areas 151 (Villas North) and 152 (Villas South). Let’s see what’s going on… Three-on-a-Lots The three-on-a lot market has been tricky to judge over the past few years due to developers going bigger and bolder with their builds in search of more profit. Check out my previous blog post from last year on some of these lots. Let’s start with the “bigger” three-on-a-lot performance…

South Bay Quarterly Performance If you have watched my recent quarterly updates on IGTV, you would know that Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach had really rough first quarters that might make some market watchers nervous. The positive news, Hermosa Beach seems to be thriving. The small beach city is up across the board in the first quarter and even more so in the luxury market. More specifically, big Hermosa Beach houses with big Hermosa Beach views. If you have not seen my quarterly updates, you can find them on my IGTV through my Instagram account @richardhaynesrealestate. Record Sale in Hermosa Beach Hermosa Beach completed its highest sale of all-time just two weeks ago at $16 million.

The Rolling Hills home market “Behind the Gates,” has had a rough couple of years from a median price perspective, sales perspective, and even what the city is known for…the high-priced home sales perspective. That seems to have all changed in 2018, as well as continuing into the conclusion of Q1 2019. For reference, you can check past blog posts on the struggling Rolling Hills market in this October 2017 post and this November 2018 post. Rolling Hills Market Data I want to share some data over the past few years that will help illustrate how the Rolling Hills sub-market has performed. I tried spacing out the chart (and color coding) so it is easier on

The Manhattan Beach Tree Section is always a topic of conversation in South Bay real estate. Not only is it in perhaps the most coveted city in the South Bay, but it offers a wide range of housing options west of Sepulveda. In this sub-market you can find anything from fixer beach bungalows for well under $2 million to turnkey new construction homes around $3 million. Close to Sand Dune Park you can find larger lots over 5,000 square feet with new construction pushing into the $4 million’s. The highly desired Martyrs area can push more than $5 million offering big homes and views. The Tree Section even offers double lots like the sale below that
