  • El Camino Village Real Estate....Hot But Not

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Lawndale, Home Selling in Lawndale, Investment Properties in Lawndale  |  October 23, 2012 1:48 PM  |  73 views  |  No comments

    The area of Gardena and Lawndale known as El Camino Village has long been a fantastic option for buyers, especially first time home buyers, feeling priced out of many of the family friendly neighborhoods of Redondo Beach and Torrance. The good news is that although prices are going up, they're still well below other similar areas....the bad news is that there just are no homes available. At the moment there is one home available with 12 pending home sales. On first look that is an absolutely stunning ratio but it is a bit misleading. Of the 12 homes 11 are short sales and the other is a flip meaning some of these homes have shown pending status for a very long time. What looks to be an ultra hot market isn't quite as active as it appears with an average days on market of 144. Bottom line in this great area is that it is a great opportunity with the short sale opportunities, but with almost no active inventory and future home for sale likely won't last long. See below for the current El Camino Village homes for sale.

  • El Camino Village Real Estate - By the Numbers

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Lawndale, Home Selling in Lawndale, Property Q&A in Lawndale  |  January 19, 2012 10:27 AM  |  455 views  |  No comments

    El Camino Village is a small pocket of Lawndale and Gardena with a very different feel than the surrounding areas.  I is an unincorporate part of LA with mailing addresses in both Gardena and Lawndale and the area is bordered by Crenshaw Blvd to the east, Prarie to the West, Manhattan Beach Blvd to the south and Marine Ave to the north.  El Camino Village has a very unique neighborhood feel with a wonderful quality of livng as it is a very walkable neighborhood with local schools often just around the corner, and is primarily zoned for single family homes only with very few larger apartment buildings.

    El Camino Village Real Estate - By the Numbers (as of January 19, 2012)

    • Active SFR home listings - 6 - Median price $300,000 - Avg Days on Market - 74
    • Pending SFR home listings - 4 - Median price of $287,000
    • Sold SFR homes since December 2011 -8 - Median price $390,000 - Avg Days on Market 73

    Keep in mind median prices are skewed by the sizes of the homes as the recently sold homes were almost all large for the area while the active listings are very small for the area with most only 2 bedrooms.
