What’s so great about living in El Segundo? Here’s a short list:

1. The diversity of the surrounding area

Living in El Segundo means being close to the beach and close to the mountains! Within a 2-3 hour drive, you can camp at Malibu Creek State Park, hike to the Hollywood Sign, ski or snowboard at Snow Valley or Mount Baldy, bask in the sun or surf at Venice Beach, El Porto, or Zuma Beach, and golf at some of the best courses in Southern California.

2. The El Segundo weather

With nearly 300 days of sunshine each year, there is no good reason to stay inside and every incentive to live a healthy, outdoor lifestyle by walking, running, swimming, biking, gardening, climbing, or whatever moves you.

3. The food

The cuisine in El Segundo and the surrounding area is high quality, affordable, and diverse beyond belief. Whatever your ethnic tastes lean toward -- Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Greek, Thai, Lebanese, French or some other -- you’ll find that cuisine in abundance in or near the city. Vegan, gluten-free, kosher? No problem.

4. Employment Opportunities

El Segundo has more Fortune 500 companies than any California city other than San Francisco.

5. Distant friends and family really, really, like to visit you

They come from all over the country to see you (and, while staying with you, they get to also see Marina Del Rey, Manhattan Beach Pier, Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm, etc.).

Okay, but what’s the catch? There must be negatives to living in El Segundo. What’s not so great about living here?

Mainly one thing:

1. El Segundo is one of the least affordable housing markets in the country.

The median home value is over $1.1 million according to the Zillow Home Value Index. The list price per square foot is $547, meaning a 10’ x 10’ guest room has a value of over $50,000. Yikes!

And as of February 2017, the average apartment rent in the city is just under $3,300.

Space crunch means El Segundo residents need to use every available inch of living space to the fullest. Since a standard queen bed in a guest room will take up most of the available living space 100% of the time, investing in a Murphy Bed could be one of the smartest investments an El Segundo resident can make.

A Murphy Bed turns any guest room into virtually two rooms (a room with a comfortable bed, plus space for a home office, exercise room, or sewing room, for example).

Based in St. George, Utah, Wilding Wallbeds has been building all-wood Murphy Beds for over 20 years. These Murphy Beds are as shallow as 16" deep when closed, leaving the entire rest of the room for other uses.

Wilding Wallbeds has a showroom at 446 Main Street in El Segundo with 20 Murphy Beds on display.

Every one of Wilding Wallbed’s Murphy Beds is portable, meaning you can take it with you if you move. Murphy Beds are easily taken down, disassembled, moved and reassembled. So, whether you are a renter or homeowner, you can own your Murphy Bed for a lifetime.

Wilding Wallbeds offers a choice of over 20 Murphy Bed styles.

There is also a choice of 5 types of Wood (oak, alder, cherry, maple and mahogany).

There is a choice of 10 side cabinets and 4 bed top cabinets.

There is a lifetime warranty on the Murphy Bed lift mechanism.

Knowing that no two rooms are exactly alike, Wilding Wallbeds also specializes in customized space-saving solutions. The company’s sales associates work with each customer to offer a unique space-saving solution that is truly one of a kind.

Each customer is able to customize the configuration by choosing the Murphy Bed style, type of wood, finish, size, optional cabinets and many other choices. Every order is built to the customer’s specifications.
