After A Big Jump In Pending Home Sales – Real Estate Slowed by Corona Virus Impacts

We saw a very impressive jump in the number of home going into escrow with both month over month numbers increasing dramatically in 2020.  That seems to have changed quickly with the impacts of the Corona virus on the Lawndale housing market.  While that’s not great news for home sellers, it certainly will present opportunties for home buyers in the area.  Acoording to South Bay realtor and Lawndale specialist Keith Kyle, “it’s inevitable that the very hot market doesn’t slow down a bit as it becomes harder to get financing and buyers income situation’s become less clear”.

Take a look at the chart below to see the “active” listings each month along with pending sales (red line) and closed sales.  The pending sales went up both January and February by quite a bit, but March saw the beginnings of the impact.

Neighborhood Spotlight – El Camino Village

El Camino Village is a small, unincorporated section of both Lawndale and Gardena and it happens to be one of the best values in the South Bay.  The neighborhood has a much more residential feel than the surrounding areas…..tree lined streets, original 1940s and 1950s beach style bungalows, and an elementary school in the heart of the neighborhood.

Real estate in El Camino Village offers some of the best values in the area as the homes are still reasonably priced compared with nearby Torrance but offers the same safe and pleasant feeling.  Bordered by Marine to the north, Manhattan Beach Blvd to the South and Prairie to the west, this relatively secret neighborhood consist of homes primarily built in the 40’s and 50’s. Some are still the original “beach” bungalows while many have been expanded and updated.

Working for Vista Sotheby’s International Realty, Keith continually strives to exceed client expectations Please feel free to contact me at any time. It is my goal to help you with all of your real estate needs and answer any questions you may have.

When buying or selling a home in Lawndale CA, you have endless choices of which real estate agent to work with. As a long time resident of the South Bay I not only have an understanding of the area and the real estate market, but I sincerely enjoy helping people find a home in the area. Having lived in Hermosa for over 25 years, I am deeply involved with the community and think that it is one of the finest places to live imaginable. From great schools, to sunny days at the beach, the South Bay has it all. I realize that you have endless choices when considering a local South Bay Realtor®, and hope that you will allow me to earn your business. My goal is not simply to sell houses, but earn clients for life.

Choosing the right South Bay Realtor® is one of the key decisions you will make in your home buying or selling process. I offer my clients the absolute highest levels of service, expertise and knowledge of not only the local market, but neighborhoods, schools, regulations,as well.

With great experience in Lawndale, Hawthorn, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Redondo and Torrance real estate as well as intimate local area knowledge, I work diligently to help home buyers and sellers meet their real estate goals.

I’ve lived in Hermosa Beach for over 17 years and think it’s simply the best place to live imaginable. I have a wife who is a local physician and 2 kids who are in the Hermosa Beach School District.

If you are looking to buy or sell a home please contact us.  You can also visit our buyer contact page or find out the value of your Lawndale home.

As a listing agent in the South Bay, my extensive marketing plan gives a homeowner the opportunity to get the maximum value for their property.

For buyers, I help negotiate the best possible deal and search until I find the perfect property. Nothing is more gratifying than the true happiness that come with a successful sale or the purchase of a lifetime.

I do this through my impeccable service, communication and core beliefs:


Buying or selling your home is a tremendous event and shouldn’t be treated like buying a car. It is my goal to not only understand your housing goals, but to understand you and your motivation for wanting to make such a big decision.

A realtor should never “pressure” you to make a decision. I always have my client’s best interest in mind….not mine.

My goal is to have long term clients. Most realtors sell a house and simply move on to the next deal. I strive to have clients for life….friends that will gladly refer me to their friends, neighbors and family.

This is simply not a “transaction” to me. Your complete satisfaction, well beyond the close of escrow, is what I always strive for. Why take it from me…..hear what my past clients have to say.


It is my sincerest goal to do everything possible to ensure total satisfaction. You will never work with an assistant or staff member but  directly with me.  In addition I am a full time realtor and have been one of the top producing realtors since 2007


With over 21 years in the South Bay I can not only help with the local market and the key aspect of pricing, but can help with information about local schools, community events, city ordinances and building restrictions
