manhattan beach Real Estate in the South Bay of California is a unique market. I specialize in the cities of Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills Estates, Rolling Hills and El Segundo. Frequently this means involving transactions in the borderline cities of Torrance, Gardena, Hawthorne, Lawndale, and Lomita. I am a member of the South Bay Board of Realtors which utilizes the Multiple Listing Services (MLS) data bank of active listings, pending sales, and previous sales. This allows for rapid and accurate comparables. County and tax records are also available as well as a vehicle for networking within the field.

I deal with Buyers and Sellers, new listings, cancelled listings, 1031 Exchanges, Single Family Residences, Residential, Townhomes, Condos, Residential Income Properties, Commercial Real Estate. These past two months have seen new active listings and total active listings both increase. Cancelled listings dropped while the number of sold properties continued to climb from the low point in February. Median sales prices for the nine South Bay city area continued to pull back from what was considered the strong second and third quarters of last year. The market is there currently, however, for both buyers and sellers of real estate.

The stock market is up and then down with no clear rhyme or reason for the movement. It frustrates people trying to build predictable retirement wealth. But this is a good time for home buyers  to build future retirement income and asset value through real estate. It seems that people outside the business think that real estate investors are speculators, people who "buy and flip", the majority of savvy real estate investors "buy, improve, and hold" the property for rental. Our South Bay real estate market is ideal for that with rents on the increase. Demand continues to rise and the supply is limited.
Current trends in the South Bay include lessening commute time with local office/business condos lofts. Our ideal climate and beach life style makes this a perfect location for both living and working. We no longer are just "bedroom" communities but rather the location of recreation,  relaxation, and employment. Our communities have the best schools, highest test scores, ideal year-round climate, healthy life style, why go elsewhere? manhattan beach
