By Keith KyleManhattan-Beach-Strand

While 2013 was a strong year it contrasted considerably with 2014 with a median home price of $1,930,000 and an average sales price of $2,438,000.  The average sales price in the sand section increased year over year by and astounding 27.6%  in one year.

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.

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.

The Difference Between Normal Streets and Walk Streets

By Keith Kyle

The homes located on the “walk streets” of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach are highly coveted and far more valuable to similar homes just blocks away that are not on these pedestrian walkways. So what is the difference?

It’s perhaps easiest to see the difference

What the walkstreet homes allow is somewhat of a front yard that opens up to the very social feel of the neighborhood. Not only is it safer due to the lack of cars, but it becomes and extension of both the home and the front yard and lends itself to a great community feel. In addition the lack of cars means lack of garages so all of the homes fact the more asthetically pleasing parts of the home and not the garages, alleys, etc.

Rare ocean view home and double lot at 121 34th Street in Manhattan Beach

By Keith Kyle121-34th-Street-Manhattan-Beach-Walkstreet

For those rare buyers in which price isn’t much of an issue the home at 121 34th Street in the Manhattan Beach sand section is a very unique opportunity.   The beautiful 4609 foot Cape Cod inspired home is located at the 121 address but is being sold along with the small home/lot that sit’s just west which allows for a full double lot or future home site.  The home is being sold along with 117 34th Street and combined makes for a 5400 foot walkstreet lot located 2 homes from the beach.  Enjoy panoramic views as well as the fact that the bulk of those views can remain protected.  Truly a unique opportunity.

What’s shocking to some is commonplace in Manhattan Beach real estate

By Keith KyleManhattan Beach Strand

One of the more challenging aspects of selling homes in the luxury community of Manhattan Beach, is the “sticker shock” many out of town buyers have when we first start searching for a home.  As one of the more expensive markets in the country, buyers are often unprepared for the type, size or condition of the home that they can get for their money.  Buyers inevitably compare the home they are selling to the home they are buying and without taking location into consideration, they find that they can often purchase something not even similar to what they’re selling.  The greatest surprise comes to buyers from states such as Texas in which they owned a 5000 foot mansion on acres of land for example and the $1.5M that they sold it for translates to  a 3 bedroom, 2200 foot townhome in Manhattan Beach with a lot measured in feet and not acres.

The reason for all of this, of course, is that it’s all about location….and the demand for that location.  There is such demand for homes in Manhattan Beach which offers great neighborhoods, ocean views, award winning schools, almost perfect weather, proximity to a world class destination beach, and near enough but far enough from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, that prices just continue to rise at an often incredible pace.  As there is no additional land to build on, even “fixers” or tear downs sell above market value as builders are eager to cash in on the demand for new construction luxury homes.

So what can an out of state buyer do?  Research the recent home sales in Manhattan Beach and current listings.  Getting comfortable with the fact that, although the prices are dramatically higher than other cities and states, these are the prices and the costs to live in such a high demand area.  Southern California has always been one of the most sought after housing destinations in the country and nowhere is that demand greater than life on the coast in Manhattan Beach.  Buyers that research values, prices and trends,  may still have that initial shock but just having an understanding that these are not “inflated” prices but just the values of the area and down the road when it’s time to sell, they’ll be on the other side of this incredibly strong market.

The chart below represents the median sales prices in Manhattan Beach for the past 2 years with a median price edging ever closer to the $2.0M mark.

2624 The Strand – New Beach Front Home For Sale in Hermosa Beach

By Keith Kyle2624-The-Strand

Recently listed is the beachfront home at 2624 The Strand in Hermosa Beach.  The 2600 block is a fairly ideal location as the elevation from beach to street offers the potential for a slightly higher home, and the north Hermosa sand section location generally means higher owner occupancy, lower density and a different feel from the areas south of the pier.  The home is fairly dated with 3758 square feet on three levels and being built in 1962.  As an older home, however, it does enjoy some of the benefits that new homes don’t enjoy as setback restrictions were more forgiving at the time.   The square footage is great for an older home and with some upgrades this truly could be a showcase property. Contact us for more information or for a private showing.

**Update – Home was sold at $8,950,000
