Currently in escrow but looking for backups, the home at 539 Loma Vista is a nice addition to the El Segundo real estate market. The appearance is a bit deceptive as this Spanish style home doesn’t look large but boasts over 3,000 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths on an almost 6,200 foot lot.
At the moment there are only 11 homes for sale on the MLS in El Segundo CA. 3 of the 11 available homes are in the new construction complexes of Waypointe and Pacific Landing. While most of the homes in the communities have sold there are still a few on the market and given the current conditions that may be likely to remeain the same for a bit.
Congratulation to our wonderful clients in El Segundo on the sale of their beautiful home. We’re happy to announce our latest home sale and so happy that our clients put their trust in us. There are not all that many $2M+ home sales in El Segundo but this was one that was well worth it. The owners did a fantastic job of keeping it in near perfect condition and selling it was a dream. Their designer eye made the home look like it was professionally staged. Congratulations! View the current homes for sale in El Segundo.

El Segundo is a fantastic little town that has a small town feel that most areas can’t duplicate. While there are an abundance of townhomes and condos, the bulk of the homes are some version of the original beach bungalow. Many have been nicely updated and expanded while some are in fairly original condition.
Unlike neighboring Manhattan Beach, El Segundo hasn’t seen quite the same building boom creating oversized luxury homes and there are several reasons. The primary reason is that values, while having gone up considerably in the past 2 years, haven’t rocketed upwards to the same extent and builders eager to build high end luxury properties may not see the margins and are searching elsewhere.
So will El Segundo see an increase in luxury $2,000,000 homes? It still appears unlikely other than the rare case of a truly special home on an oversized lot in an A+ location. There will be a limited amount of homeowners that simply love El Segundo that build their dream house and at some point those homes will be sold, but it’s very unlikely we’ll see too many luxury spec homes built as the cost of lots/tear down homes, plus the cost of building makes for a challenging investment.
As many of my clients are first time home buyers, the process of the termite inspection and termite/wood destroying pest repair process is often a bit confusing. Unlike any traditional repair requests that come up during the escrow process, the termite inspection and repairs are generally agreed upon prior to acceptance and are therefore contractual and non-negotiable during escrow.
During the offer there are two times the inspection and work can be mentioned. The Residential Purchase Agreement specifies whether an inspection will be performed and who will pay for it. Another document called the WPA or wood destroying pest addendum can also be included in the offer and goes into greater detail explaining what will be inspected, who will pay for it, and if there is any work needed per the inspection, who pays for the work. Most often sellers agree to pay for both the inspection and, what’s known as, section 1 recommendations. This often includes wood repair, spot treatment and sometimes fumigation (tenting). Every negotiation is different and some will not agree to pay for an inspection or the work. Regardless I advise my sellers to have an inspection even if they are paying for it themselves as simply put…it makes a big unknown more understood and decisions can then be based on the results. There are a number of challenges and problems that can be caused by the termite uncertainty and I’ve listed several here.
