Despite a significant nationwide housing downturn in recent years, El Segundo has held its property values comparatively well thanks to its prime location, excellent schools and many amenities. Median residential property values are still considerably higher than they were a decade ago and the community is still high in demand among families. When contrasted with neighboring beach communities, El Segundo is a true value, offering some of the most affordably priced housing in the South Bay residential market.
