About Redondo Beach Real Estate and Neighborhoods
Redondo Beach is the largest of the beach cities of the South Bay, with over 69,000 people calling the city home. It’s also the oldest – Redondo Beach was founded in 1892, more than 15 years before the other beach cities. Houses in Redondo Beach are often more affordable when compared with homes in Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach.
There are elegant beachfront homes and condos along the Esplanade, a suburban feel near the beach in South Redondo and quality homes throughout North Redondo near work centers. Schools throughout Redondo Beach are of high quality. Tip: The Riviera Village is a precious, small-town downtown that's a great destination for anyone, local or tourist.
Redondo Beach is divided between north and south sections, with 190th St./Anita making up the boundary between the areas. Within these major areas, there are many smaller neighborhoods with their own special character, helping Redondo Beach to feel like many small towns grouped together under one banner.
South Redondo Beach
South Redondo Beach features some beachfront, the Redondo Beach Pier and the King Harbor and Marina complex. The darling Riviera Village at the city’s southern tip hosts a collection of small shops and many restaurants. All along Pacific Coast Highway, you will find more stores and eateries.
Surfing, biking and scuba diving are part of the lifestyle south of the pier, where the wide, sandy beach continues to Torrance Beach and “RAT Beach” (“Right After Torrance”) before the cliffs of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. There’s also fishing off the pier and from boats launched out of the marina. South Redondo Beach has the ZIP code of 90277.

For many people, there is a major difference between the South Redondo Beach neighborhoods South of Torrance Boulevard and North of Torrance Boulevard; going south tends to mean longer commute times, while prices tend to be lower north of Torrance.

Historic Homes in Redondo Beach
With many historic homes in the city, Redondo Beach is committed to protecting special properties through its 7-member Preservation Commission. The commission maintains a register of historic homes and districts, and has published occasional surveys of historic buildings, identifying special properties with Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Spanish Colonial, Queen Anne, Victorian, Tudor Revival and modern style.
Owners of historic properties can benefit from much lower property taxes by entering into an agreement with the city to maintain and/or rehabilitate their homes, thanks to the state law known as the Mills Act. Along the 500 blocks of North Gertruda and Garnet Street, you can find clusters of historic homes that give the neighborhoods a charming “throwback” feel.

Redondo Beach Transfer Tax
When you buy or sell a home in Redondo Beach, there is a transfer tax collected during escrow. The city charges a rate of $2.20 per $1,000 of home value. So, for instance, on a purchase price of $1,000,000, the price is divided by $1,000 to make a total of 1000, which is multiplied by the tax rate of $2.20, for a total transfer tax of $2,200.00.
The custom in Redondo Beach home sales is for this transfer tax to be equally shared (50/50) between seller and buyer.
