11 of 39 Sand Section Homes for Sale are Oceanfront

By Keith KyleManhattan-Beach-Strand

I’ve written in the past about just how rare and valuable oceanfront homes in Manhattan Beach are.  Nothing has changed in that regard as prices have actually reach stratospheric levels and simply put, the number of homes on the beach is limited and always will be.  They may rebuild some of them, but there’s no room to build new homes.

Having said all of that it’s fairly amazing that over a quarter of the homes available in the sand section of Manhattan Beach are located on the oceanfront street known as The Strand.  A few years back it would have been difficult to find a single Strand home for sale.  Now there are 11 and most are staying on the market for quite a while.  The primary reason for this is that most Strand home sellers are asking for fairly unbelievable prices for their homes.  While there’s always a demand for luxury oceanfront homes even the higher end luxury home buyers are priced out of this neighborhood.
