Interest Rates, Shifting Market, Holiday Fog….OR? 7 Day Market Update and Weekend Open House List- Hermosa Beach

The market is entering a normal end-of-year slow down phase, hence the minimal amount activity this week. Although, I have noticed a slight push to get properties up and going before we get to deep into the holiday fog (mid-Dec. to mid-Jan.). We may see one last burst of activity right after Thanksgiving. Also post-election, the interest rates ticked up and that usually contributes to a short-term cool down of activity. Barring any national or international news…I feel strongly that the market will come out of the gate again next year starting mid-January. Eagerly watching!

1830 The Strand Listed for $7,999,999 6 bed/4 bath
This home first hit the market in May for about 4 months, however it didn’t sell. With a small price improvement, it is back on the market with a different company. Strand properties… we’ve all walked by them and wondered how much they sell for. Below is a list of what has happened this year with Strand properties in Hermosa Beach.
1004 6th Listed for $1,995,000 4 bed/3.5 bath
That was quick! In less than a week, it already has a buyer. This attached townhome was built in 2003 and has ocean views from the rooftop. It is a large townhome with over 3,300 sq. ft. Since the 2 townhomes are attached, there isn’t a setback requirement/building code (distance in between the 2 townhomes, which can be as much as 20 feet), allowing that space to be used as living sq. footage, thus making it potentially larger in size. This property last sold in 2006 for $1,750,000.

618 1st Listed for $1,299,000 3 bed/3 bath
The price reduction must have worked….it only took 7 days after to go into escrow. This home first hit the market in August 2016 for $100K more, however after about 3 months, it was cancelled and put back on the market 3 days later. Hence, it has really been on the market for 97 days. . This is a detached townhome that is located one block north of Herondo, which is the Hermosa/South Redondo border. It last sold in 1999 for $450K. The other townhome on this lot, 616 1st last sold when it was built in 1998 for $487K.
