131 Homes Sold in a Record 12 Months in the Tight Housing Market of South Bay 

LONG BEACH, Calif. Brandywine Homes announced today that all 131 single-family homes in Riverdale have sold out just one year after the grand opening of the gated residential community in northeast Long Beach.

Sales have been consistently brisk at Riverdale, the only new residential development located in the South Bay, where there is short supply and high demand in the housing market. The revitalized coastal city is also within easy reach of Los Angeles and Orange County, making it ideal for commuters who work in these cities.

“Riverdale is the largest community we’ve built to date and the response from homebuyers has been phenomenal,” said Dave Barisic, principal in charge of sales and marketing at Brandywine Homes, a pioneer of infill development in Southern California. “Due to its size, we were able to create a sense of place with great recreational facilities and an adjacent park where people can envision raising a family and hanging out with their neighbors.”

Riverdale includes a resort-style clubhouse with a meeting room, a pool and spa with cabanas, outdoor dining areas and a tot lot. The homes range from 1,925 to 2,242 square feet and offer exceptional features such as a covered patio, convenient downstairs bedroom and spacious loft at prices starting in the low $600,000s, which is relatively affordable for Southern California.

As part of the development, Brandywine constructed a 3.3-acre city park nearby that features a turf soccer field, playground, restroom facility, walking path, parking and landscaping with energy efficient lighting to provide additional hours of play for Long Beach sports groups.
