Homes We Love: 103 Via Mesa Grande

We have always been fans of homes that look the part….coastal architecture that looks like it was meant to be in the neibhorhood….and homes that don’t overwhelm the lot (i.e. mansionization). The home at 103 Via Mesa Grande is one we love everytime we drive by. From the clean look to the ocean views, this was a great remodel and a beautiful home.

  • Priced at $2,699,000
  • 3 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 bath

Budgeting To Buy a House in the Hollywood Riviera

There are costs of buying a home that go above and beyond the actual sales price.  In California these are negotiated in the offer and most of the time the seller pays the bulk of the costs.  There are a few exceptions to this and as mentioned…it’s negotiated.  The bulk of the buyer paid costs are loan related and usually include prepaid items and origination costs.

Although most home buyers know they’ll be paying some costs, it’s good to have an understanding of some of the smaller fees and costs.  Here is a look at some of the lesser known fees in buying a house that buyers should know about and budget for.

Hollywood Riviera Real Estate Market 2018- Year in Review

2018 was an incredible year for real estate in the Hollywood Riviera.  Home prices continued to rise rapidly as demand for homes in this coastal community showed no signs of easing.  For those just starting to explore the neighborhood, the Hollywood Riviera lies at the base of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.  With a Redondo Beach zip and mailing address, the Hollywood Riviera is actually part of Torrance with Torrance schools and services.  The combination of strict building restrictions protecting views and the location on the side of a hillside, makes for often spectacular ocean and coastline views.
