Pending Sales in Hermosa WERE on the Rise and then……..

We were seeing a really nice increase in homes going under contract in Hermosa Beach which was a great sign.  Inventory has been tight and it was great to see the inventory and pending sales on the rise.  It went from 9 in December, to 15 in January, to 18 in February…..then we started to see the impacts of the shutdown.  Only 12 pending sales in March and as of today, 4/11  there are only 11.  Let’s hope that things turn around quickly when the world starts working again.

March 2020 Hermosa Beach Home Sales and Home Prices

March was a busy month for home sales in the coastal community of Hermosa Beach. There were 20 on market home sales which is a very strong number for this small town. Median list price was $1,622,000 with the median sold price at $1,637,500 indicating a VERY strong sellers market. That may change with the current Corona virus impact but that’s yet to be seen. The average price per foot was a very high $1112 and average days on market was 84.

Those prices were all heavily impacted by an oceanfront home sale at 1534 The Strand which was listed just under $10,000,000 and closed for $8,700,000.

7 Beachfront Homes on The Market…..Wow!

It wasn’t all that long ago that a single beachfront home for sale on The Strand in Hermosa Beach was pretty rare. Oh how things have changed with 7 homes and properties currently for sale.  Combine that with another 5 homes for sale on the Manhattan Beach Strand and that’s a very high percentage of the total number of beachfront homes.

Real Estate Recap – Hermosa Beach Home Sales and Prices for February

Home Sales & Prices for February

February was a very slow month for closed home sales in Hermosa Beach with only 10 homes sold during the month. That’s the fewest home sales in a month over the past 12 months other than December and was half of the home sale numbers during the peak summer months of 2019.

Prices continued to imrpess  with the median list prices of $1,549,000 and a median sales price of $1,542,500 indicating that we’re still very much in a seller’s market.  Average price per foot for sold homes in Hermosa Beach was $1029.  Median days on market was 139 which is fairly misleading as 3 homes had been on the market for over 6 months but the rest a relatively short time on the market. 

The sand section of Hermosa saw the most home sales with 8.   See the Hermosa Beach real estate stats for the past 15 months below.
