Torrance, California is a big city and it’s neighborhoods and areas vary considerably in the types of homes, feel of the neighborhood, and home prices. As realtors, we search for homes by neighborhood so that we can best assist our clients to find the right type of homes in the right areas. Below is a map used by realtors and used in MLS home searches. The numbers coincide with the areas that we use to search and each has it’s differences and similarities. The three areas that often cause confusion are area 128 the Hollywood Riviera and areas 122 and 123, Harbor Gateway and County Strip. Much of the Hollywood Riviera actually has Redondo Beach, 90277, zip codes but the area is actually part of Torrance and services and schools are Torrance. The County Strip and Harbor Gateway areas actually have Torrance zip codes but are serviced by the city of Los Angeles. It’s distance from the beach, proximity to commercial and industrial, and the schools being LA Unified makes the homes significantly less expensive then the city of Torrance areas.
