The "Redondo Beach Townhouse Guy" Sells Another Detached 2 on a Lot Townhouse

I'm not exactly sure how I became known as the "Redondo Beach Townhouse Guy" but I guess there are worse things to be called.

Maybe it is because about half my sales are in Redondo Beach and a lot of those are attached and detached 2 and 3 on a lot townhomes or "Tall & Skinnies" which look like townhomes but are really Single Famly Houses. Or maybe all those open houses I've done over the years, yes in townhomes, just made an impression on the hundreds of people I've met. And I do write about townhomes quite a lot on my Redondo Beach Blog.

And many of those 5 Star Zillow Reviews were written by Redondo Beach home Buyers and Sellers.
But really, I also sell a lot of SFRs and not just in Redondo. Recently, I sold one of the largest (and most expensive) houses in Torrance. And I do a fair amount of business in other Beach Cities (Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach) and those are as often SFRs as townhomes
 So why do Buyers and Sellers think I'm "The Redondo Beach Townhouse Guy"? Here's why.

I sell a lot of townhomes in Redondo Beach!

I just sold 2209 Harriman Lane Unit B in MLS Area 152 (pictured above). Here's what the MLS description stated:

"This bright and cheerful Mediterranean rear unit of a two-on-a-lot has everything you would want in a home. The living room features an inviting gas fireplace spacious living area.Plantation shutters and crown molding add beauty and class.Through sliding glass doors is a magnificent landscaped stone patio filled w/flowers for tranquil relaxation and a vinyl fence for privacy.This home is made for entertaining.The dining room opens to the beautiful cooks kitchen with recessed lighting shining down on a spacious silestone countertop peninsula perfect for buffet dinners.The sun streams through the skylight as you walk up the extra wide staircase to the second level.To the right is a fabulous master suite with three closets including a walk-in.The vaulted exposed beam ceiling with sunburst plantation shutters draw your eyes to the romantic stone gas fireplace. The master bathroom is suited for a spa with beautiful granite countertops, double sinks and a frameless travertine stone shower with a bench connected to the hydro-jetted tub. Down the hall are three additional bright bedrooms and a hall bath with double sinks for your guests. The spacious two-car garage and hall closet under the stairs provides lots of storage. Close to shopping,schools and the beach!"

The property was listed for $789,000 on Oct 2nd. My clients offered $820,000 and we had our offer accepted without any counters or crazy terms a few days later. All in all, it was a smooth escrow and I couldn't even find anything in the inspection report to complain about.

I also think my buyers got an exceptional deal. Not only was the house in great shape, it appraised for higher than the  list price! In fact, I thought it may have sold for closer to $850K. Shows what I know and I'm the Redondo Beach Townhouse Guy!
