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.

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.

How Do Fusion Home Prices Compare with 360 South Bay

360 South Bay and Fusion South Bay are two of the premier gated communities in the area.  Both communities are fairly new with 360 generally being built around 2012-2013 and Fusion being built around 2006.  New construction with ammenities that today’s buyers are looking for are very hard to find in a similar price range in the neighboring communities.  Both neighborhoods appealed to buyers that wanted the lifestyle of Manhattan or Redondo but couldn’t afford it.  Although todays buyers seem to be more focused on one or the other, they have long appealed to the same buyers.

The charts below show of the basic real estate market information.  It’s not always an apples to apples comparison as 360 offers everything from studio condos to large 4 bedroom “single family” style detached homes.  Fusion on the other hand offers 2 and 3 bedroom townhomes.  If you’re considering either community here are the basics:

Why are there no homes for sale in Fusion South Bay?

The demand for homes in Fusion South Bay is fairly unbelivable at the moment.  The very few listings that come on the market seem to sell very quickly and are often at record prices, so why aren’t more owners selling their homes?

There’s no really easy answer to that.  Many owners and residents decide to hold on to Fusion properties as rentals once they’ve moved out.  There is a very strong rental market in Fusion due to the location, the fact that it’s gated, the Wiseburn School District, and the fact that it’s a fairly low effort place to live.

If you’re looking for a home in Fusion there will be some that come on the market, but if the past year was an indication it may be a while before we see any real increase in the inventory and available homes.

Have Prices Finally Gotten Too High in Fusion?

By Keith KyleFusion A Floorplan Kitchen

Home prices in Fusion, one of the South Bay’s only newer construction gated communities, has done nothing but go up in the past two years.  Prices that once seemed impossible are now the norm and many buyers are kicking themselves for not buying when the market was down.  As with any real estate market with skyrocketing prices….it has to end, or at least dramatically slow down, at some point.

The question is….are we at that point?  It’s a bit tough to say as part of the reason the few listings that are currently for sale are sitting (which hasn’t happened in a long time) is that they are priced beyond peak values.  3 bedroom units had been selling in the high $600,000s 16 months ago and the most recent new listing came out at an unbelievable $825,000.   See the home and all new home listings in Fusion South Bay here.

Only time will tell whether the slight slowdown is simply do to temporary overpricing or if the market has gotten too rich for buyers in general.
