Think you can’t have it all? Off Market Listing at 2104 Palm Ave in Manhattan Beach

One thing the Manhattan Beach homes don’t always offer the luxury home buyer is space.  There are the occasional oversized lots in the hill section but 2104 Palm Manhattan Beach other than that there just isn’t just much in the way of the great outdoors.

That’s certainly not the case with the rare opportunity offered at 2104 Palm Ave in the tree section of Manhattan Beach.  Currently off market and not on the MLS, this home sits on two adjacent lots offering a beautiful home and not only a yard, but a yard that most local soccer teams would be envious of.  The home itself offers almost 4500 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 baths and the combined lot size is almost 10,000 feet which is almost unheard of in this part of town.  Built in 2006, the home has been meticulously maintained and updated and offers a pool and spa in addition to the best sports court that you can imagine.  Not currently on the market, the home is for sale at $7,999,000 with listing agent Greg Maffei of Re/Max.

The home can be shown to qualified buyers.  Please contact us for a private showing and find out more about this very rare opportunity.  Contact us to see other Manhattan Beach pocket listings and off market homes before they hit the market.

Days on Market On the Rise in the Tree Section of Manhattan Beach

By Keith KyleManhattan Beach homes

In this ultra hot market any sign that things are slowing down is big news.  While the market is still very favorable for sellers we are noticing that many homes in the tree section of Manhattan Beach seem to be sitting on the market for a little longer.  The current average for “active” listings (those not sold or in escrow) is 56.  The number can be a bit misleading due to the fact the local MLS days on market continue to accrue if a home that is in escrow posts as “backup” status.  The number of days on market has risen every month since August of 2014 with a slightly higher number in January.  As inventory slowly rises the days on market will likely follow.  See all of the latest Manhattan Beach real estate market trends at our updated statistic pages.

4 Homes Under $1,000,000 in Manhattan Beach

By Keith KyleBeach Bungalows

In the luxury real estate market of Manhattan Beach it isn’t overly common these days to find anything priced below $1,000,000.  The obvious reason is the demand for homes in this coastal community has never been stronger.  Another reason is that just about any “original” beach type bungalow that comes around is often snatched up by builders looking to flip or, more likely, to replace with a 4000 foot single family home.  The third reason is that condos are almost non-existent with zoning allowing primarily single family homes with a scattering of townhomes mixed in which eliminates the entry level type condo.  At the moment, however, there are 4 homes for sale priced below $1,000,000.  If you’re interested in learning more or even taking a look please don’t hesitate to contact us.

If 90% of Homebuyers Start Their Search Online…..

…Shouldn’t you work with a realtor that’s tech savvy?4020 Bluff Pl - Home-From-Patio

With the internet and social media becoming an ever larger presence in real estate, it seems critical that home sellers would use agents that know how to reach those buyers and specialize in marketing homes online.  Strangely enough that’s often not the case and many Manhattan Beach home sellers work with agents that no little, to nothing, about the power of online marketing.  The local audience and MLS are obviously great ways to market a home, but to reach national and international buyers, it takes a bit more effort and a great deal of expertise.  The difference can mean significant amount of interest and that can lead to a significant amount of money.  Before sellers hire a realtor they should make sure that they know the intricacies of the local market, are well connected, and have a top notch marketing strategy that not only uses, but embraces technology.

Recent Home Sale Shows Just How Hot the Oceanview Market Is

By Keith Kyle2401 Manhattan Ave

There is no question that the real estate market in Manhattan Beach has been on fire since the beginning of 2013.  Record low inventory and intense demand for luxury homes and prime locations has created a building boom not seen in a long while.  Multiple offer situations seem to be the norm and the number of all cash buyers continues to drive this already competitive market.   This continued demand from buyers and builders alike has driven prices upward to record numbers and nowhere is the demand greater than in the sand section.

The most recent example was the walkstreet home located at 2401 Manhattan Ave.  Just a block to the beach and having fantastic corner lot ocean views this home was certainly going to interest both the owner/user looking for a great location and builders seeking the same.  The home was listed at $2,495,000 which is already a huge number for a half lot home but all indications appear that the home had at least 11 offers and sold over $3.0M* which is a staggering number for a home with the limitations that come along with a 1,352 square foot lot.   Any future build will be limited to around a max square footage of 2000 feet.  The last sale of a new construction half lot (not on a walkstreet which certainly adds value) closed at $3.3M at 124 23rd Street.   Over $3.0M for this likely tear down at 2401 Manhattan Ave is a very large number indeed and shows just how far values have come in the past 24 months.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # 314032829 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.

Housing Inventory Remains Low in the Sand Section

Despite a one month uptick in new listings in the sand section of Manhattan Beach, it appears that there’s no real relief in sight as record low inventory continues.  There were 64 homes for sale in September of 2011 and as of 11/5/14 there are only 17 current active MLS listings.  To a certain extent that lack of inventory for the past 2 straight years has seen home prices rise dramatically.  The average sold home price in September 2011 was $1.736M and the average sales price just 2 years later was $2.864M…..a 65% increase.
