Purchasing a property is most likely the biggest financial decision you will ever make. Whether this is your first purchase or you are an experienced buyer, this decision must be made carefully

Why Do You Want To Buy?

Are you tired of paying rent? Have you decided to pay your own mortgage and not your landlord’s? Have you outgrown your current home? Are you looking for an investment portfolio? Are you looking for a rental property? Would you like a larger yard? Would you rather live in a different area? Do you want to shorten your commute? Having a clear sense of your reasons for buying will help you choose the right property.

Has Your Income Grown?

Property ownership is an excellent investment; whether you are looking for your dream home, a rental property, or to expand your investment portfolio. Owning real estate is one of the least risky ways to build equity or to obtain a greater return on your initial investment.

Known for its iconic cities, prosperous economy, and gorgeous year round weather, the Golden State is one of the most coveted places to live in the United States.

The South Bay is especially lauded as the best place to buy a property in California, thanks to its oceanfront setting and remarkable beach properties.

Located in the southwestern portion of Los Angeles County, this area is far removed from the frenzy of the City of Angels, offering a safe and sweet environment to come home to at the end of a long day.

This buyers’ guide has everything you need to know about purchasing real estate in the South Bay cities.

  • Things to know before buying a house in California
  • Buying a home in California is a dream come true for anyone. Buyers are willing to pay a premium for real estate in the South Bay, and as a result, homes sell quick, and for top dollar.

  • Crafting an offer
  • In a desirable community such as Palos Verdes, well-priced homes and beachfront properties tend to go under contract fairly quickly. That’s why your first offer should always be your strongest offer.

    Keep in mind that the best offer isn’t necessarily the highest offer, although this gives you the advantage in many cases. Sellers might pay attention to who can close the deal faster and waive contingencies such as inspections.
