What Is My Condo Loft Townhome In South Pasadena Worth?  

Living In South Pas - Small Town Appeal But City Convenient



What Is My Mission Meridian Village Condo in South Pasadena Worth


This is a real estate market activity report for the market segment in South Pasadena which consists of condos, lofts and townhomes.   In this report, I will share information regarding properties currently for sale, in escrow and sold in September as well as the first nine months of 2017.  Additionally, I will share the same sales results for those periods in the previous three years.   


Statistical information in this report has been gathered from our local multiple listing service(mls) and may not include all sales in the category. While the information is deemed reliable, it has not been verified and is not guaranteed.


South Pasadena Condos and Townhomes


South Pasadena has a small town charm where you find tree-lined streets with character homes as well as more modern homes with views in the hills.  While the number is more limited, there are also condos, lofts and townhomes in the city.   This option may work well for those who may be looking for a more maintenance-free lifestyle and as one might expect generally lower in price.  Operative word - generally as South Pasadena is not an inexpensive place to live but practically a bargain compared to some West Los Angeles neighborhoods.   


South Pasadena is a separate city located in the West San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County and not part of its neighbor, the city of Pasadena.  South Pas as it is known by residents and fans alike is often a stand in for films, television shows and advertising of all kinds with its close resemblance to Small Town America as long as the palm trees are kept away(or the power of photoshop, I guess).  The school district is well-regarded and the library is a popular destination for the community.  Many small independently owned businesses and restaurants in and near Mission Street further enhance the neighborhood feel.    


The city is quite convenient to the Arroyo Seco Parkway(110) as well as other freeways and a Gold Line light rail station at Mission and Meridian which is also the home to the weekly Farmers Market held each Thursday.

It should be noted that the 38 unit development of flats, townhomes and condos at 820 Mission Street that opened in 2016 has had an impact on the increase in average/median sales prices in the city as well as units sold. Although not all are a part of the local multiple listing service, the prices in the project has had an impact on the overall sale prices.  It is now in its close-out stage with only one reflected as part of our mls statistics(in escrow).


What Is My Condo Loft Townhome In South Pasadena Worth?



Obviously, this report is merely a snapshot look at properties on the market or for sale(and sold) in a particular given time frame.  Looking at nine months versus one month is a better indication of the market.  The South Pas market still favors sellers and buyers should expect that multiple offers that are well-priced and well-presented.     There are many nuances of the market and analysis of individual sales need to be carefully analyzed.   


What is my Monterey Townhome in South Pasadena Worth Today

In the condo - loft - townhome segment of the market not only does the location of a complex within the city make a difference but the location within that complex.  Other factors that should be considered include condition, updates(or lack thereof), emotional appeal and timing.   It should be noted that inventory in this market segment of South Pasadena condos, lofts and townhomes remains low.  


While multiple offers and sales over list prices remain common, sellers should be mindful of proper pricing and presentation as today’s buyers remain quite savvy as to market conditions.    Buyers, as always, need to be able to respond quickly to new listings as well as price reductions(yes, they still occur at times in an active market).

Hi Michael Jacobs - Those looking for homes in and around Pasadena need to ask you about options like South Pasadena - condos, townhomes and Loft living as well.  I doubt many realize how close SoPas is to LA and is so centrally located to the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys that it is a fabulous option that you can help clients navigate through to find their best option.

It's nice to see that they are still building newer condos and lofts in South Pas, but some of the older properties certainly seem to have more character. I guess this way you can attract as buyers not only the Baby Boomers but also the Millennials.

Michael Jacobs - There are so many things I have come to know and like about Pasadena and it's all because of you.

  1. I love the architecture and how all buildings seem to blend in with the landscaping so well.
  2. I love the quaintness and charm, I always think somebody important lives there; e.g., movie script writer, producer, author, doctor, teacher, philosopher, someone wise and wonderful.
  3. I would love to tour these homes - they seem so unique.
  4. I love that the area always sounds interesting.
  5. I love that even if something is old, it's updated, fresh and intriguing - something you just can't pass up because it's unique and just right!
