             501 Herondo St #65 Listed for $780,000                                  3 bed/3 bath
501 2.43.18 PM 501 Herondo is a 75-unit complex located on the southern edge of Hermosa, bordering Redondo Beach and called The Mooring. #65 is the 3rd sale for this complex in 2014.
The 2 other sales (closed) this year were:
#2 (2 bed/2 bath, 1439 sq. ft.) $720,000
#46 (2 bed/3 bath, 1475 sq. ft.) $700,000

#65’s neighbor next door, #66, entered the market about 1 month ago at $849,000 ($69K more). It’s still actively for sale and has yet to find a buyer.

The highest recorded sale in this complex was back in 2005:
501 Herondo    $835,000     11/15/05

                 1942 The Strand Listed for $16,900,000                                   6 bed/2 bath
1942 This property is essentially a double lot. We’ve heard that 2 different homes will be built on this lot…one that will be a custom built, owner occupied home and the other will be developed as a spec home and resold. The sale is rumored to be in the $15 Million range.

We wrote about this property and The Strand earlier in the year right after this listing hit the market. Here what we said:
1942 The Strand is freshly on the market for $18,000,000.
That is a big price tag for a home built in 1913, even if it is on The Strand.
However, its positive attributes are its northern Hermosa location, its corner/walk street situation and its 6,632 square foot lot size. Even after city mandated building set backs and lot coverage rules…you can build a mega-mansion on this lot. The value is in the dirt, and this lot’s per dirt square foot is priced at over $2700. A very similar property on a corner, with a 6,200 sq. ft. lot sold in 2012 for $5,850,000. If you compare the two, that’s some extensive inflation.

Guess what…after 64 days on the market; it still sold for over asking ($26K over asking)
