Where did all the homes go in West Torrance?

Well the limited number of homes that were on the market all sold leaving inventory down once again.

The chart below shows the number of active listings (light green) sold homes (dark green) and pending home sales (red line) The greater the discrepancy between active homes and sold homes indicates a buyers market and when the numbers are closer a sellers market is indicated as inventory is down. February saw 13 homes close escrow with only 6 active homes for sale. As of April 17th there are 8 active homes for sale and 13 homes in escrow.

 

Torrance Housing Inventory Still Down But on the Rise

By Keith Kyle1310_Portola_Ave_frontdoor1 copy

The real estate market in Torrance CA continues to be driven by the lack of homes for sale but for the third straight month we have seen an increase in the number of homes for sale.  Inventory has been on the rise since the low point in December but still far below the norm.  We have also seen an increase in the pending home sales over that same period of time and it appears that the inventory will continue to rise as we head towards the usually busy summer buying and selling season.  See all of the Torrance homes for sale or search by neighborhoods.  To see the most recent Torrance home sales visit our closed sale pages.

Seaside Ranchos A Great Combination of Neighborhood Feel and Beach Proximity

By Keith Kyle Exterior

Many buyers actively seek Torrance neighborhoods for the wonderful community feel, tree lined streets, great schools and family friendly vibe.  Nowhere is this more embodied than in the Seaside Ranchos area of South Redondo Beach.  The Seaside Ranchos neighborhood is often called the Christmas Lights area due to the annual show put on by the residents.  Sitting just North of Pacific Coast Highway as it turns inland near the Palos Valos Peninsula the neighborhood is a collection of beautiful homes on larger lots.  Most homes are generally updated and upgraded versions of the original beach homes built with fewer “McMansions” than in many other South Bay neighborhoods.   The majority of the homes offer 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and due to the much larger lots than in most areas of Torrance often have fantastic backyards.  The tree lined streets offer a very safe and friendly feel and give the area it’s “Christmas Lights” nickname as all of the community trees are wrapped in white lights during the holidays and rare is the home that isn’t decorated with lights and decorations.  The area has become so popular during the holidays that traffic is restricted in the evenings and cars line up for seemingly hours to drive through the spectacular display.  Prices generally start in the low $800s and can price over the $2.0M mark for some of the most impressive homes on oversized lots.
