3004 The Strand in Hermosa Beach was one exception to a very saturated and very slow beachfront market. It recently closed escrow at a number well below the list price, which certainly may be one reason it sold relatively quickly compared with the rest of the market. 3033 was a classic beach house much larger than most original beach bungalows on the Strand. It was listed at $14,800,000 and closed at $12,000,000.
While the number of homes that sold was certainly down in May from the year earlier, the home prices most definitely didn’t take a hit. There were only 10 homes, townhomes and condos sold during the month with a fairly incredible median sales price of $2,608,000 which was just slightly below the median home price in Manhattan Beach of $2,642,000. The average days on market was a brief 26 and price per foot was $1,095.

With a current median list price of over $11,000,000, it’s not hard to see why beachfront homes on the Strand in Hermosa Beach don’t always tend to take a while to sell. What’s amazing is that in years past there were long stretches with no homes for sale on the Strand. It’s fairly unheard of that we now have 8 homes for sale along the beachfront strip in this high end coastal community.
