We’re always suckers for Cape Cod and Craftman homes but this is one we really liked. 4079 Bluff Street is basically a smaller beach bungalow done right. It offers 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and just under 1,400 square feet on an almost 5,000 foot lot. Originally built in 1948 it’s undergone a great transformation with a bright and beachy look and interior. They did a great job in keeping some of the original feel while both modernizing it and giving it far more charm. Listed with Nicole Reis of Palm Realty the home just came on the market at $1,175,000.

2018 was a banner year for real estate in Torrance CA. Demand was extremely high and prices continued to rise throughout the year with a slight drop towards the winter months which is not unusual. The number of homes for sale really ramped up after spring from a low of 76 homes on the market in January to a high of 167 homes for sale in July. There were 1,195 residential “on market” home sales in Torrance for the year. These statistics do not include the homes in the Hollywood Riviera with Redondo mailing address but actually in Torrance.
Homes Selling At or Above Asking Price
One extremely impressive indicator of just how strong the market remained through the year was the % difference between list price and sold price (how close the sellers were to full asking price). In seven of the months the average home sold at, or above the average list price and in the remaining 5 months they were within a percent or 2 of full list price. That’s a sign of an extremely seller friendly market.
Days on Market Very Low
Another solid indicator was the average days on market with only topped 30 days once….in January of 2018. Median prices for the year generally overed between $700,000 and $800,000.
|Avg. Active Price||$757.000||$749.000||$815.000||$820.000||$814.000||$780.000||$819.000||$809.000||$ 803.000||$771.000||$727.000||$724.000|

Torrance is far more than one uniform real estate market. With neighborhoods that range from sub $500,000 to homes in the multi millions, each area has it’s own localized market.
In general the real estate market seems to be slowing down heading into 2019. Demand is cooling with higher interest rates and a fairly regular slow down this time of year when people are busy with the holidays.
According to Torrance realtor Keith Kyle, “It’s clear that the market is cooling off as there has been an increase in new listings coupled with fewer sales and homes going into escrow since summer.” The chart above shows that the number of active listings has held pretty steady between 150 and 170 since summer, but the number of sold homes as well as new escrows has continued to decrease. If this trend continues the market will shift more in favor of buyers and less in favor of sellers. It’s clearly been a sellers market over the past few years.
The chart below shows the upward trend over the past few months with avarage “months of inventory” of unsold homes on the rise.
