Redondo Beach Luxury Listings and Sales--October 2015

The "feel" on the street by those of us working in the real estate field on a daily basis is the market is slowing down and losing a bit of steam after three strong comeback years. The results of my research on recent activity in the Redondo Beach, CA luxury home market supports and converts the feeling into fact.

  • There are currently three Redondo Beach luxury homes priced at or over $3,000,000 for sale. 
  • There are no Redondo Beach high-end luxury homes currently in escrow and no closed sales in the over $3M price range for the month of September.

Market report Oct 2015 

After three plus years of a strong sellers' market the scale is making a slow move toward neutral territory. It's still not a buyers' market, but with more homes to choose from and a slowing of price increases, buyers may find the opportunity to purchase a luxury home in the beach cities of Manhattan, Hermosa and Redondo or on the Palos Verdes Peninsula before interest rates begin their upward trend.

  Market report Oct 2015 
Sales in the Beach Cities luxury home market appear to have slowed in recent months. At the current rate of absorption there is over a three month supply of luxury inventory in Hermosa Beach. These numbers still favor sellers, but there are more choices available to buyers, and more competition for sellers, as the market moves toward a more neutral zone.

Redondo Beach Luxury Homes - Sept 2015

Redondo Beach CA

I recently read the California housing market slowed during the month of August 2015. The reason was attributed to the volatility of the stock market and other global happenings. On a more local level I've always attributed the "August decline" to vacations, back-to-school preparations and the last few weeks of the lazy days of summer. Who really wants to traipse through houses during the hottest days of the year? Personal reasons play an important role in when people decide to sell or purchase real estate.
