Found 7 blog entries about Remodels.


South Bay real estate markets have heated up. Some would say there's a risk of overheating.

But for the time being, buyers have to see this market as it is. Ongoing appreciation is real.

You can measure it several ways, but one is to look at how the same house fares from one year to the next.

1509 mag kitch1509 Magnolia (3br/2ba, 1350 sqft.) is a Manhattan Beach remodel that was finished up by flippers about 2 years ago. To see the property today is to see it the same as when it was finished up in 2013.

Sale price in Oct. 2013: $1.355M.

And then, here we are just 18 months later, and the same property is newly in escrow, with a list price of $1.549M.

Since the deal was made quickly, we're going to assume that list price was hit or exceeded by the…

Here's your exclusive chance to see and purchase a remodeled Hermosa Beach condo that is not on the MLS.

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit is on the ground level of a building in a great location on Hermosa Avenue in the northern end of town. It's a short walk to Martha's for brunch, and an even shorter walk – across the street! – to the beach.

The whole 914 square foot condo was remodeled completely just a few years ago, with a sleek, modern style to the kitchen, baths and living areas.

The exterior of the building is about to undergo a major makeover, and will look fantastic when complete.

Can you really live on Hermosa Ave. in the north end of town for $1,050,000? You can.

This property is not on the MLS. With the pace of the Hermosa Beach…

At the very highest end, sometimes properties need to wait a while to find their buyers.

Such was the case at 709 The Esplanade in Redondo Beach. It was first listed for $10.0M in Feb. 2012.

The most recent list price was 31% lower: $6.850M. Now they have a deal with a buyer, fully 3 years later.

In the time in between, prices rose in the Redondo Beach real estate market. Eventually the trend lines would meet: Rising prices market-wide, and reduced asking prices on this property. That time was now.

The highly custom home was built in 1990 in a Spanish style. It has opulent, wide-open common rooms with ample natural light from skylights and endless ocean views from its blufftop location.

Flooring is largely marble, and there are custom…

There is just no risk of getting bored at 2 Pine Tree Lane in Rolling Hills.

The sprawling "Sportman's Estate" spans more than 2 1/2 acres and includes a pool, indoor racquetball court, home gym, soccer pitch, (paddle) tennis court, home theater and game room. Even with that exhaustive list, we're probably missing something.

Of course, a unique and enormous house like this (6br/8ba, 12,500 sq. ft.) is going to have its price: $7.985M.

Lots of land, big views (ocean and city) and all of those over-the-top extras put a home like this into that price territory. But if you compare this playland at 2 Pine Tree to some kind of comparable property in Beverly Hills or similar areas in Los Angeles, even $8M looks like a deal.
