Homes We Like – 402 Via San Sebastian in the Hollywood Riviera

Call us suckers for big ocean views and clean coastal design, but the home at 402 Via San Sebastian definitely caught our eye. The home offers some fantastic ocean views and the clean design inspired by luxury coastal living makes for a fantastic place to call home. Sitting on a 10,000+ foot elevated lot, the home has expansive views of the oceean and coast. With 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a bit over 1,500 feet the home fits in nicely with the neighborhood. Although it was originally built in 1954 the home was recently remodeled and reimagined. Listed with Jennifer Fematt of Douglass Elliman the home is currently priced at $1,750,000.  Contact us for more information on this home or to schedule a private showing.

Homes we Like – Big Views and a Beachy Vibe at 320 Paseo De La Playa

Although it’s surprising to still see this home on the market for over a month, we still think it’s a pretty affordable way of enjoying the good life in the Hollywood Riviera.  While homes on Paseo De La Playa are selling well into the multi millions (the largest of which sold over $22,000,000 in 2018!!!) there are still opportunities to carve out your beach niche in the area.  Just east of the parking lot above Torrance Beach is 320 Paseo De La Playa.  This condo/townhome offers some stunning and unblockable ocean views and sit’s just across the street from the beach.  Just reduced from $1,479,000 to $1,379,000 and listed with Redfin, this property may just be the beach home you’re looking for.

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.
