Real Estate Activity At Surfwood Monterey Condos In Los Angeles

Real Estate Activity At Surfwood Monterey Condos in Los Angeles Is Off To A Good Start in 2017


This is a real estate market activity report for the Surfwood Monterey condominium complex in the Hermon area in the city of Los Angeles. As part of the 90042 zip code, the complex which is located at 6140 Monterey Road is in a highly convenient location just east of Arroyo Seco Parkway(110) with easy access to multiple other freeways and two Gold Line light rail stations.

In this report I will share information regarding units on the market for sale, in escrow and sold for the month of January 2017 with a comparison to sales results in January for the previous five years.  The statistical information presented here has been gathered from our local multiple listing service(mls) and may not reflect all transactions in the complex.   In order to get an idea of the bigger picture for this complex, I suggest you read my report that encompasses all of 2016 with a comparison to recent years.  That report can be accessed by clicking here.    


Built around three central courtyards, the professionally managed Surfwood Monterey complex has a pool, spa, lounge area, gym and two elevators. The 92 unit complex was constructed in 1989.    Secured parking is on the first level of the four story building.


The condos at Surfwood Monterey are all single level with two bedrooms and two baths in a variety of floor plans.  Interior features include fireplaces(some plans have two), in unit laundry connections, walk-in closets and balconies or patios.   Units on the fourth floor feature clerestory windows and higher ceilings.  Square footages range from under 1000 to nearly 1200.


  • There were no mls reported sales in January, 2016.  The same was true in 2015.  Despite no closings, two properties went into escrow last month.   Continuing a trend that has existed in the complex, there are no units currently on the market for sale.


  • In January, 2014, a top floor unit with approximately 985 square feet in the rear of the complex closed for $290,000(last list price $299,900)


  • No sales in the first month of 2013 but in 2012, a remodeled second floor unit with approximately 1177 square feet closed for $229,000(list price $235,000) in a flip transaction.  


As I previously mentioned, the location of Surfwood Monterey is easily accessible to multiple freeways yet it remains a bit under-the-radar when it comes to recognition.   Even the Hermon neighborhood which has roots dating to the early years of the 20th century is relatively unknown.   For this reason, I believe your buying power will provide a lot more condo than you might find in other areas of Los Angeles even as prices have continued to increase in recent years.


Would you like to know more about this affordable Los Angeles condo community?   Do you own a unit in this desirable complex and want to know about its value in today’s still very active real estate market?   Let’s discuss what is important to you.  I can be reached at 818.516.4393 cell.

Sounds like people like living in Surfwood and don't frequently sell their condo.  The desired location must be a huge selling feature with the easy access to everything.

Condos seem to be the trend in your area! You have such a nice variety and assortment of just about everything! Buyers and Sellers should know they are in excellent hands with you as their Real Estate Agent. I can't think of anyone who writes up such a comprehensive report other than you! I would appreciate that if I were a buyer or seller!

Hi Michael, I've always liked the architect of Surfwood Monterey condos, many residents feel the same way based on inventory. Whether buying or selling in this condo complex or any other in Los Angeles, you are the real estate agent to call.

Hi Michael - Excellent market report for Surfwood Monterey condos. As our strong seller's market pushes our prices up, I have used your regular reporting on this complex to gage how quickly we're becoming like Pasadena - we still have a ways to go, but we're closing in.

Hey Michael: Secured parking, does that mean you park behind a gate and nobody can get in without a card? I seem to zero in on some of your terminology since it's verbiage for things I don't often hear in Sacramento.

Thank you for stopping by and your comments on this real estate update for the Monterey Hills community.   

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents --- in this particular complex, the parking is gated and there is access via key or remote control for residents.   Parking in Surfwood Monterey is on the ground level and there are two elevators that lead residents to their floor.  I appreciate your questions.

Michael Jacobs I figure if I have those questions, others might as well. Elevators are very much appreciated for those who grocery shop and need to transport bags from the car into the house.

You're absolutely correct about that Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents.  Most of our complexes have elevators but there are more than a few "garden" style condos in the areas I cover that do not.   It's all in knowing the details.
