Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach are the South Bay Beach Cities. They are located south of LAX and west of the 405 freeway and are known for their great lifestyle, schools, amenities and of course beach proximity.
If you are thinking of buying a home in the Beach Cities it is very important to understand both the local jargon and the micro-markets i.e. neighborhoods smaller than the city they are in and the various property types in those neighborhoods.
Manhattan Beach homes are some of the most expensive in the LA area. Luxury, coastal living at its best.
Redondo Beach can almost be thought of as two cities: South Redondo Beach and North Redondo Beach.
Hermosa Beach properties are often within biking or walking distance to the beach.
