September’s Big Sale in Hermosa Beach

The biggest sale of the month was at 2545 Myrtle in the north Hermosa sand section area closing escrow at $5,275,000. Listed by Matt Pernice this beautiful home built in 2014 offered 5 bedrooms, 6 baths and an impressive 4,188 square feet. Just a few blocks from the beach the home offered some great balcony and rooftop deck ocean views in the most sought after area of Hermosa. One question will be the impact of the construction of the former North School located just across the street.

The home basically sold off market with it going into escrow just 2 days after it was put on the MLS. The home sold at $4,300,000 in July of 2014.  View all of the Hermosa Beach and South Bay home sales in September 2017

Another Steller (and Hot!) Labor Day in Hermosa Beach

What a place to live and call home. While the rest of Los Angeles was in the midst of a sweltering heat wave, Hermosa Beach didn’t disappoint. It was an unheard of 90 degrees here at the beach but compared with the triple digits elsewhere who can complain. The endless activities of Hermosa on Labor Day was in full effect from the 60th annual Labor Day 4 Man Volleyball tournament to the Fiesta Hermosa, to simple days in the ocean…there was something for everyone.
