Quiet North Redondo Offers Great Home Values

An area of the South Bay that is hardly talked about as have some great home values is the North Redondo Beach area, often referred to as The TRW tract of homes. This area is not new and was originally developed in the 1940s to help solve the home shortages created when the thousands of people migrated to California to work in the aviation industry followed by the thousands of service personnel who came here after the war, many working in the new aerospace industry at the start of the 60s. Today, homes in the area will range from about the mid $500, 000s upward to as high as close to $1M depending on size, age, etc. This is a popular area especially for new and growing families due to the extra large yards the homes have, excellent school choices, parks and the close by beaches. It is much like it was originally with quiet street, large mature trees that line those same streets, modern shopping areas and of course it's close location to the freeways. While the usual type of duplex properties are not often found in the area, many North Redondo homes have permitted guest homes or rooms attached to garages towards the rear of the property, with much of the original large yards still available. You won't find condominium or town home complexes here, nor will you find many apartment buildings. Ideally located just east of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach, the areas of North Redondo Beach offer more affordable housing options than it's neighbors to the west while still offering excellent schools, proximity to the beach, charming neighborhoods, entertainment and shopping options, great restaurants and cozy cafes, and closeness to the freeways. A great area for retirees, professional singles and a fantastic place to settle down for new and growing families. Continue reading

Torrance Farmers Market

We in the SouthBay are so lucky to have so many shopping options available to us. I just returned from one of the many local farmers markets and what a great experience. Just knowing you are able to get farm fresh veggies, locally and organically grown, along with other great bargains like house plants and gift options is nice. We are able to go into most cities in the South Bay and attend one of the various outdoor markets almost any day of the week. Today, I went to the Torrance Farmers Market. The Torrance Outdoor market is located just north of Sepulveda Blvd. and Crenshaw Blvd. at the beautiful Wilson Park. It's open on Tuesday and Saturdays and has some great deals. It's worth going to this Farmers Market just to experience one of Torrance's many beautiful parks. Take the kids and maybe picnic lunch and enjoy the day. (There are B-B-Qs available here) Continue reading
