It depends what you are trying to do with the foreclosure. Hold and Keep or Flip. I work on a small team that flips around 10 houses a year through out the south bay. We just did one in Hermosa Beach that sold earlier this year and I have another Hermosa we are working on. I also just bought a foreclosure this year that I keep and rent out in Hermosa Beach. Email me a firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 310-809-2891. I can give you all the addresses for references. Just depends what you want to do. I team up with people all the time or just find you the deal. Hope I hear from you soon.
We spoke the other day and I just saw your question. I'll be emailing you as well but as mentioned it's very challenging market at the moment as even the few foreclosures occasionally available (there are currently no foreclosures, or short sales in Hermosa and Manhattan and 6 in Redondo with the lowest priced at $420,000) are no longer at any real discounted price. A year ago they were driving the market down but demand for homes is so strong that they are no longer a factor and most sell very close to market value. I'll email you some other possibilities shortly.
