New “C” Unit On the Market at 5406 #18

With only 17 home sales in all of 2018 it’s pretty clear that sellers were surprisingly in no rush to list their homes.  Inventory remained low for the year and hopefully 2019 will see a great number of homes for sale in Fusion.  The year is starting off well with a new “C” floorplan that just came on the market priced at $735,000.  Listed with Jodi Keel of D Reams and Co, the floorplan is one of the smaller layouts but unlike the A & B units, the home has an attached garage.  Call, text or email us for more information on this newest Fusion listing.

Fusion 2018 – Year in Review

2018 was a great year for home sales in Fusion At South Bay, one of the South Bay’s only newer construction gated communities.  There were 17 home sales with the low price of the year at $670,000 for a 1,000 (est) foot B floorplan and the highest price of the year was $855,000 for a 3 bedroom J unit.  The unit originally sold even higher but ran into appraisal issues.  The average price per foot (which doesn’t necessarily mean as much as usual as some realtors use the builders data, showing larger square footage, and some realtors use the tax assessor’s data, which is often much smaller) was $597 and median price per foot was at $602.  Located in the Hollyglen neighborhood of Hawthorne, Fusion sits just across the street from Manhattan Beach which lends itself to an even higher demand as many buyers are priced out of the adjacent neighborhoods.  The homes were generally built in 2006-2008 (with some variance).  Although there are currently no active homes for sale we do update our active Fusion listings page so visit to see any new listings.

Average days on market was 11 for the year….incredible.

Off Market Sale at 5512 W 149th Pl # 11?

We recently noticed a 3 bedroom condo at 5512 W 149th Pl # 11 coming on the MLS at $850,000 but immediately was a pending sale.  This is often the case when something sells off market but is put on the MLS for various reasons.  The home had been on the market priced at $835,000 back towards the end of summer but the owner decided to pull it off of the market.  If the seller did end up getting this new price or higher that might have been a beneficial delay.  We’ll keep you posted when we have more information.

As of this writing there is another 3 bedroom on the market at 5402 W 149th Place Unit#12.  3 bedroom units are fairly rare as the bulk of the units in Fusion are 2 bedrooms so it’s especially rare to see 2 different 3 bedroom units on the market.

Finally a New Listing in Fusion South Bay – 5402 W 149th Place #12

It’s been a while since anything came on the market in Fusion but there’s finally a new listing.  5402 W 149th Place #12 is a J floorplan (see video walkthrough of a J layout) that came on the market priced at $829,000.  The J unit is a rare 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath.  Square footage is listed at 1660 square feet but builder data shows 1730 sq feet.  The home offers some upgrades with granite counters, stainless appliances and some hardwood floors in the kitchen area.  The listing agent is Gina Hoffman of Palm Realty Boutique

Currently No Homes for Sale in Fusion South Bay

What has already been a fairly slow few months in Fusion South Bay has gotten even slower with no new listings on the market in the last month. As Fusion is just across the street from Manhattan Beach but priced in an entirely different range, this has become a very high demand community. With so little inventory the demand certainly doesn’t show signs of easing anytime soon. While there are currently no homes for sale 360 South Bay may be an alternative for buyers. You can also visit our Fusion listings for an updated list of homes for sale when new listings hit the market.

Want an even eaiser way…..tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll send you email listing updates anytime a new listing hits the market.

Latest Fusion South Bay Real Estate News

It’s been a busy market in Fusion with a number of new listings, new escrows, price changes and closed sales. Here’s the latest:

  • 5507 #11 – This is a 3 bedroom J floorplan which is usually very rare but when this hit the market late in August this was the 3rd J unit on the market.  This beautiful home went into escrow quickly and is scheduled to close escrow on September 28th.  List price was $847,500
  • 5512 #11 – This was another 3 bedroom J floorplan that was initially listed at $850,000.  When 5507 was put on the market this home was reduced to $835,000.   They had an offer but the seller decided to pull it off of the market and it’s no longer available.
  • 5404 #10 – This is one of the smaller “B” 2 bedroom units currently active on the market and priced at $675,000.  We believe they’ll have multiple offers and it will be in escrow shortly.
  • 5403 #4 – This is a larger 2 bedroom originally priced at $815,000 and recently reduced to $799,000 and is still active.  It’s a nice unit that faces the interior.
  • 5507 #9 – This is another smaller “B” floorplan that was a relocation.  It sold quickly with multiple offers and is currently pending
  • 5400 #7 – This was yet another 3 bedroom “J” floorplan unit that faced the interior but was towards the end of the complex.  It came out at a fairly huge number of $880,000 and quickly went into escrow.  The unit will close this week at a record sales price for the community.

For more information on all of these visit the current Fusion South Bay listings, or see the recent sales activity in this gated community.
