The time between Christmas and the New Year is always traditionally slow for real estate, and the South Bay Beach Cities are no exception. We cover a large area and it is shocking how slow it can get during this time, although for good reason. Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, and Palos Verdes combined has yielded less new listings than you can count on your fingers and toes this past week.

An interesting area of Hermosa Beach that many overlook, is a small section of the Hermosa Valley between Ardmore and Pacific Coast Highway. There lies a few condominium complexes on 1600 Ardmore, 1720 Ardmore, and 1707 Pacific Coast Highway (aka The Hermosa Surf Condos) that offer very affordable home ownership in Hermosa Beach terms.

However, there are some downsides: these condos are located on busy streets, surrounded by commercial property, and they are in massive complexes with small units. Basically… they feel like apartments. Because of these downsides, these condos sell at a
