South Bay Real Estate Half Year Report 2014

Posted by Krystyna Baty on Wednesday, July 9th, 2014 at 12:10pm.

We are now half way into 2014 so it's a perfect time to compile our local South Bay real estate sales and selling home price summary and compare them with the same period last year. South Bay covers many markets, all of them offer attractive real estate choices and their own appeal. I have selected three major South Bay markets - Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and Torrance in order to give you a shapshot of our market in the first six months this year.

All data is for single family homes only and it's based on the local MLS stats (CRMLS). DOM - days on market



 Average single family home selling price was $2,279,111 in Manhattan Beach - 13% increase over same period last year; 169 houses were sold - 10 more than last year.  Manhattan Beach market is currently a strong seller's market.  Low inventory and strong demand result in multiple offers and quick sales. 

   2013  2014  Change 
 Sold  169  176  +4%
 Avg Price  $2,008,131  $2,279,111  +13%
 Lowest Sold  $659,000  $929,000  
 Highest Sold  $11.5M  $12.9M  
 Avg DOM  49  42  

 Current Manhattan Beach inventory consists of only 48 single family homes, 2 condos and 15 townhomes. 


 In Redondo Beach, 171 single family homes were sold (10% drop in sales volume);  Average selling price of $953,968 was higher by 5% compared to same period last year. 

   2013  2014  Change

 Avg DOM   40  45  

 Current inventory is low - only 149 homes are active (59 houses, 34 condos, 56 townhomes).  Redondo Beach buyers often compete for homes, pushing prices up. 


 Average Torrance home selling price was 701,565 in the first half of this year - 6% increase.  Sales volume was lower by 12%.
