El Camino Village – The Community You may Never Have Heard of

While we specialize in El Segundo real estate and the cities of the Beach Cities, we are often asked what “up and coming” neighborhood might be a good place to consider in the South Bay.

One neighborhood we think offers a great combination of affordable prices and a great community feel is El Camino Village.  While not actually a city, the neighborhood of El Camino consist of parts of Lawndale and parts of Gardena.  Generally the real estate in El Camino Village is worth quite a bit more than the other adjacent neighborhoods of Gardena and Lawndale.  Click on the El Camino Village Real Estate picture below to see updates, new listings, and information on this great area.

Median Home Price in El Segundo Tops $1,000,000

By Keith Kyle840_Center_Street

The January home sales numbers are in and the median home prices for El Segundo in January was a whopping $1,074,000.  Although the market is certainly continuing to rise the jump of almost 35% was due mainly to the types of homes that closed in January.  Unlike previous months the bulk of the homes that sold were larger single family homes on large lots, and multi unit properties. The highest sales price was for 802 Center Street which closed at $2,150, 000 which is a very large number for this coastal community.  It wasn’t long ago that home sales in El Segundo approaching $2.0M was fairly unheard of.  Click here to view the home sales in El Segundo and South Bay for January 2016.

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.
