Torrance is a diverse community and home prices can certainly reflect that. From multi million dollar homes along the bluff in the Hollywood Riviera, to the neighborhoods near the 110 Freeway, neighborhoods and home prices vary considerably.
Topping out the market at the moment is the home at 326 Calle De Arboles in the Hollywood Riviera. The home is priced at $2,098,000 with 3,251 square feet and has been on the market almost 2 months as of this posting. While the homes in the Hollywood Riviera are often Redondo Beach mailing addresses and zip codes, the homes are actually located in Torrance with award winning Torrance schools and services.
On the other side of the spectrum is the one bedroom condo located at 941 W Carson. It’s listed at $205,000 and is a short sale property. This section of Torrance is known as county strip. Very much the opposite of the Hollywood Riviera this section of Torrance is actually not part of Torrance proper and is serviced by LA Unified Schools and LA City services. As the schools are not at the same level (in most cases) as the Torrance Unified schools, values are always lower in this area.
