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.

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.


Location a Critical Factor in El Segundo Real Estate

El Segundo is a fantastic community oriented city in the South Bay. It offers a great small town feel, charming downtown and Main Street areas, award winning schools and proximity to the beach. From a real estate perspective, however, parts of El Segundo do have their challenges….and it’s all about the location. El Segundo CA area Map The challenge El Segundo has is that it happens to have some less than appealing neighbors. Directly to the north lies LAX, or Los Angeles International Airport. To the west lies the Hyperion Waste Water Treatment Plant. To the south lies the Chevron Oil Refinery (although the areas nearest to the refinery of primarily commercial) and to the east is a relatively busy, but nice commercial and retail corridor with high rise buildings, hotels and strip malls. Although each area may require some compromise on the part of buyers, each does offer lower prices than the neighborhoods in the center of town. If you’re working with a realtor, make sure that they are familiar with El Segundo and can offer insight into just what the various neighborhoods are like.
