North Torrance Houses for Sale
Just adjacent to the more competitive neighborhoods you may be getting priced out of or that are very competitive, if you look in the right pockets you can often find what is, comparatively, a deal. For the sake of this discussion let's define deal as an affordable house that you would want to own and live in.
Currently, there are some very nice homes in North Torrance 90504 that are west of the 405 and in nice residential neighborhoods, particularly in the pocket east of Hawthorne Blvd.
One of the challenges is that you don't want to be too close to the freeway, power lines, Hawthorne Blvd or the oil field. But that still leaves a good number of homes to work with.
While many are in original condition, these are cookie cutter mid century single family houses that can be easily upgraded with a reasonable budget. Or maybe you find one that is turn key as is (well you need a refrigerator) such as 4139 W 176th St which was just listed for $608,000.
The house is 1114 SqFt, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths on a 5373 SqFt lot. It is listed for $608,000 but will sell for more for sure. Let's take a look.
