What makes the Torrance real estate market so unique in the South Bay?

By Keith Kyle15412_Roselle_Ave_front3 copy

People often think of the South Bay as one large market but each individual city can mean an entirely different real estate market….just take a look at the monthly median home prices in the South Bay as an indication.

Each city is it’s own real estate market but Torrance is different.  As Torrance is the largest city in the South Bay it’s also the most diverse.  That’s especially true in terms of real estate and home values in Torrance.

What make Torrance so different is the variety of areas, and the diversity of both the homes and the prices.  Torrance is a city that has multi million dollar homes along the Bluff on Paseo De La Playa and also has some of the most affordable homes in all of the South Bay.

Search Torrance homes by area.

The sheer size of Torrance also makes a difference.  Stretching all the way from the ocean to east of the 110 freeway makes for an abundance of options not possible in any other city in the area.  This also allows for everything from single family homes, to condos to even co-ops (rarely seen in the South Bay).

It is definitely not a seen one seen em all type real estate market.

Oceanfront Home for Sale at 501 Paseo De La Playa in the Hollywood Riviera

By Keith Kyle

I’ve been fortunate to represent a few clients on purchases or sales along Paseo De La Playa in the Hollywood Riviera and the locations is nothing short of spectacular.  Paseo De La Playa is the oceanfront street that connects Redondo Beach with the beginning of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and offers a lifestyle not found in many places.  Hollywood Riviera is a unique area as it has a Redondo Beach address but is actually located in the city of Torrance.

The recent listing of 501 Paseo De La Playa is no exception.  This 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home sits high on the bluff and offers mesmerizing views of the ocean, Palos Verdes and the beautiful coastline from Redondo to Malibu.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # PV16082156 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.
