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.
