REDONDO BEACH NEW CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: TOWNHOUSES AND SINGLE FAMILY HOMES FOR SALE, IN ESCROW AND RECENTLY SOLD

Are you looking for new construction homes in North Redondo Beach? While there aren't as many active builders as a few years ago, there are some great deals to be had right now with new construction townhouses and single family homes often selling for about the same price as resales. Really. Before we get into the review and analysis, a little jargon and a few facts you might find useful.

North Redondo Beach Buyers will generally find variations on a few themes: 3 on a lot attached townhouses, 2 on a lot attached townhouses, traditional single family houses, and "tall and skinny" single family homes. What you won't find being built today are the attached two on a lots. Typically, the neighborhood may determine the type of new construction home.

There are a few active builders and listing agents playing in this market. There's a few variations but here's how this is working right now.

A few listing agents represent investor groups who look to acquire properties either directly from private sellers or from time to time, listed "scrapers". Other builders have been sitting on rental units waiting for the market to come back and will occasionally build on a lot they already own.

Many homeowners are unrealistic as to the lot value of their land. That, coupled with the housing slowdown and inherent risks in spec projects has decreased the new construction activity.

Be that as it may, new construction home buyers today in many instances are getting many more amenities and better quality finish work in new construction in Redondo Beach than they were just a few years ago when prices were higher. So, even though the new construction activity isn't what it was back in the boom years, there has been a steady flow of building going on. Or, at least enough to meet market demand. Here's your update.
