Our Latest Fusion Sale – New Price Record for an “A” Floorplan

By Keith Kyle7 main room

We’re happy to announce our latest sale at 5404 W 149th Place in Fusion South Bay.  We represented the sellers of this beautiful “A” floorplan condo in one of the South Bay’s only newer construction gated communities.  The combination of a very nice condo with a number of upgrades and our staging made the home shine.  With 7 offers, almost all over asking price, this was definitely a winner.  The real estate market in Fusion South Bay couldn’t be hotter with any and all new listing selling immediately and some even selling before it hit the market.

Congratulations to our client Peter for the quick sale of his beautiful home at the impressive price of $547,000.

February 2015 Home Sales in El Segundo CA

El Segundo once again saw a limited number of sales but a very positive month in terms of sale prices.  While monthly sales prices were down a bit compared with the previous two months, much of that was due to the past few months being impacted by the sales of recently completed townhomes.  To view the current homes for sale visit our MLS listings page.

Lyon Homes Beginning to List 360 South Bay Homes on the MLS

By Keith Kyle360 South Bay

**Update**All new construction homes have been sold and Lyon Homes in no longer involved.  There are homes for sale as resale units but there are no longer new construction units.  Please contact us for information on the homes for sale.

In a shift from their previous sales strategies, William Lyon Homes are now starting to list many of their new construction properties on the local MLS making it easier to see and purchase with the use of a realtor.  Until now all new home sales were done through the Lyon Homes sales office as “buyers agents” were not involved and a realtors involvement often ended at bringing the prospective buyer through the community for an initial visit.  While they are still keeping the role of the buyers agent to a minimum, listing the homes on the MLS has been a definite shift in policy.

360 South Bay is a newly constructed gated community in the Hollyglen neighborhood of Hawthorne CA and offers new and newer homes with a great community feel, fantastic ammenities and is located in the award winning Wiseburn School District.

View information on 360 South Bay including models, floorplans and more.

In addition to the new construction and upcoming construction, there are a number of resale units that have always been handled like normal real estate transactions with a buyers and sellers realtor involved.

Where did all the homes in Fusion go?

By Keith KyleFusion South Bay

It seems that nobody is selling in Fusion these days which is a bit unusual as so many owners in the complex weathered some tough years and homes are once again nearing the peak.  As a realtor who frequently sells homes in this great community, it’s always a challenge when the inventory is this low as there’s simply nothing to sell.  Fusion has always been a very unique market as there are often either too many homes on the market, and they all sit until the first one sells (and then they seem to go like dominoes) or there’s no homes on the market.  The appeal of Fusion is the combination of price, location, and age which makes them a great value.  Built in 2006 and 2007, they sit just east of Manhattan Beach but at dramatically lower prices.  Most buyers often start their searches in Redondo Beach or El Segundo, but after looking at what $550,000 or so gets them in those towns, they opt for the very new, very well located Fusion townhomes.

So what’s an interested buyer to do?

  • The first aspect is to find an agent that frequently sells in Fusion as they may have the inside track into upcoming and off market possibilities.  There are 4 or 5 realtors that work fairly extensively in this gated community.
  • Be patient.  As I mentioned above Fusion is a unique market that seems to go in waves.  It won’t be too long before there are several listings
  • Consider the condos, townhomes, and single family homes at 360.  Another alternative is the community known as 360 which is just a bit north.  Contact us for more information as there are new homes as well as resale listings.

 

September Home Sales in El Segundo Dominated by Condos

El Segundo CA once again saw a fairly low number of home sales for September 2014.  The real estate market continued to be a sellers market with very low inventory and very high demand in this coastal community of the South Bay outside of Los Angeles.  The bulk of the home sales in September were dominated by condos, which is a bit unusual.  Of the 8 homes sold on the MLS, 5 were condos, one was a townhome and only 2 single family homes.  Visit our El Segundo CA homes for sale page to see the current active MLS listings or visit our recent home sale page for the South Bay to see other months and other South Bay Cities.

El Segundo Real Estate Market Update

By Keith Kyle

The market in El Segundo seems to have leveled a bit with the number of homes for sale hovering in the high teens for the past few months.  As of August 25th there are currently active listings in El Segundo.   Although last month saw a significant increase in active listings and this month we see an increase in pending home sales, the numbers are skewed a bit due to the recent release of a number of new construction townhomes on Walnut and Pepper.

Townhomes for Sale On The Rise In Fusion South Bay

The real estate market in Fusion South Bay doesn’t always follow the normal trends and patterns of some of the surrounding neighborhoods.  Unlike the surrounding cities of Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach in which home inventory has been down and prices are on still on the rise, the market in Fusion comes in waves.  As of several months ago there were almost no homes for sale and when one came on the market it quickly sold.  The next few homes that became available were priced on the very high end and sat for some time (some still sitting) and as many of the newer listings were based on those prices there is an abundance of homes for sale ranging from the smaller A and B floorplans to two 3 bedroom units that are generally rare and not often on the market.  Fusion is a great alternative to the more expensive Redondo Beach, Manhattan and El Segundo.  The homes were built between 2005 and 2007 so they feel much larger and newer than anything in a similar price range found nearby.
