Lawndale, CA Real Estate News

Living close to the beach is rarely what most people would consider affordable.  As they say in real estate, "location, location, location" and that location comes with a cost....literally.  One of the neighborhoods we think is generally good value is Lawndale which is one of the smaller cities in the South Bay.  Lawndale has a fairly diverse mix of condos, single family and multi unit home with some of the more affordable homes in the area without going too far east.One of our favorite pockets of Lawndale is El Camino Village with a real neighborhood feel.  Consisting of only single family homes on tree lined streets with homes that clearly have pride of ownership, it's very similar to nearby Torrance neighborhoods but with a much lower price tag.  Lying just east of Redondo Beach, the...

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 lin...

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...

SoCal Pool Builders just started a new swimming pool construction project in Lawndale CA Los Angeles County. This is an undersized, simple pool with a finish size to be 225 sq. ft (24 x 12). It is going to be primarily for adult use only since there are no children at the residence. The customer wanted to retain most of the backyard space for decking and yard. As you see in the picture, we are using a mini backhoe vs. the standard bobcat tractor because the access on the side of the house was very narrow. This mini backhoe was able to squeeze in to the backyard after we temporarily removed the adjoining fence along the side of the house. We, of course, had to obtain permission from the neighbors. How did we get the dirt out of the backyard? Five workers running continuous wheelbarrels f...

First Time Buyers Can Receive up to $75,000 in Down Payment Assistance for Eligible Homes in Lawndale  LAWNDALE, CA - As one of the last cities to be annexed as part of the South Bay of Los Angeles County, Lawndale is also the smallest city in the South Bay.  With only approximately 30,000 residents, Lawndale has always maintained a small town feel to it (as compared to its more populous neighboring cities).  Lawndale is a "young professionals" town with a median age of 29yrs and more than half the residents working in professional occupations (managerial/professional/sales).  This makes Lawndale a great place for young people and families just starting out.  With more than half of Lawndale's population falling in the low-medium income level (25k-50k for singles & 50k-75k for families),...

I am noticing an increasing trend with clients more and more everyday. Most clients would like to handle their financing needs online via emails. Believe me  i love taking to my clients and prospects over the phone but for the most part its more convienient for them to talk to me at work via their work/personal email address. In explicit detail they are able to express what they would like to accomplish in theor refinance or new home loan. Its also easier for me as a loan officer to give them updates on their transaction or ask them for additional documentation if needed. This is alot easier than having ro leave messages on their voicemail and waiting for them to call me back. I am in front of a computer for most of the day so i can return emails quickly, i also check my emails at least...
