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.

At Long Last….A New Listing in Fusion at 5406 149th

It’s been a while since there was a home for sale in Fusion in the South Bay, the gated townhome community in the Hollyglen area of Hawthorne. Fusion-South-Bay Ideally located just east of Manhattan Beach, it’s is a fantastic alternative to Redondo, Manhattan and El Segundo.  Prices would be exponentially higher if it were located just across the street, but the location still offers residents easy access to the active South Bay lifestyle with the beach, dining, shopping and more close by.

The current unit for sale is a “C” floorplan (see our video walkthrough of a different Fusion C townhome for a sense of the layout) which offers a very open kitchen/dining/living room areas with 2 bedrooms and laundry upstairs. The C floorplan also offers a 2 car attached garage.  The ammenities of the complex include pool and spa, small playground, half basketball court and various exercise stations.

Located at 5406 W 149th Place unit #18, (see Fusion South Bay map) it is priced at $499,000 which, in our opinion, is low and would be a good deal for the buyer that purchases the home.  Square footage is listed as 1,110 by listing agent Young Kim of Landmark, but in our experience the square footage is actually larger when measured.

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.

Fusion South Bay – Affordable Alternative to El Segundo

Fusion South Bay Townhomes – Hollyglen, Hawthorne in the Wiseburn School District 

Fusion South Bay is a small gated community adjacent to Manhattan Beach just east of Aviation.  The homes were built from 2005-2007 and is technically located in the neighborhood of Hawthorne known as Hollyglen.  It is a unique area due to it’s location just east of Manhattan and El Segundo and offers it’s own award winning school system knows as Wiseburn.  The community features 2 and 3 bedroom townhome style condominiums and the community features some nice open space areas as well as pool and spa. 

Fusion is a fantastic alternative for buyers looking in the nearby cities of Redondo Beach, El Segundo and Manhattan Beach.  Due simply to the zip code, Fusion offers much newer, nicer and larger home options for a much lower price.

When we were at the peak of the market the townhomes in the Fusion complex drew a great deal of interest for many couples and singles priced out of the nearby Beach Cities. Fusion is technically on 149th Street in Hawthorne, but is just off Aviation Blvd  and directly across the street from Manhattan Beach. As the  market cooled so did the prices in Fusion and we saw smaller 2 bedroom townhomes selling below  $400,000 which was hard to believe.  The market has picked back up and prices are somewhat stable but the inventory of homes in Fusion continues to defy the norm and goes from no homes and high demand to multiple homes with less Fusion South Baybuyer interest all in short periods of time.

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.
