Good Times at the 2015 Surf Festival

By Keith Kyle,2015 Surf Festival Manhattan Beach

One of the highlights of summer in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach is the annual Surf Festival.  Only in the South Bay can a festival include events such as the pier to pier swim (between Hermosa and Manhattan piers), surf contests, lifeguard competions and relays, paddle surfing, body surfing competition, sand castle competion, beach running races and the highlight of the event which is the Charlie Saikley 6 man volleyball tournament.  Always a fan favorite, the 6 man tournament offers both mens and women’s brackets with levels going from the “just out having fun” to teams composed of current and former pro volleyball players.  To add to the festive atmosphere many/most of the teams dress up in various costumes including the WWF team (that puts a wrestling ring around their half of the court), to the Lakers 2015 Surf Festival Manhattan Beachcomprised of former pros and even former LA Lakers.

In addition to the variety of competitons for adults, there are also a number of competitions for kids.  This is one of the most entertaining events of the summer.

Known as the “international surf festival” it truly is a global affair with athletes and lifeguards coming from as far away as Australia to compete.

Location, Location, Location…May Not Be As Much a Factor in This Market

By Keith KyleSand-Section

As a local Manhattan Beach agent, I represent many buyers in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach and have definitely noticed in the current market that the old standard “location, location, location” just doesn’t hold true at the moment.  In most markets buyers tend to be picky and don’t want certain streets, don’t want to be too close to commercial buildings, don’t like busier areas and are happy to wait until something better comes along.  While some of these factors still may be relevant, it’s certainly not the critical factor that it usually is.  Even “locationally challenged” homes seem to have little problem selling for top dollar.

Normally challenging streets such as Rosecrans, Pacific, Valley, Ardmore and Prospect don’t seem to be so “locationally challenged” at the moment.

Recent home sales and the prices they sold for have shown clearly that the demand for homes in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach is so high that people are willing to overlook sub A+ locations to live in the area.  Prices on these somewhat busy streets inlcude 2025 Prospect in Hermosa…a small 2 bedroom cottage for $870,000, 1929 Ava (fronting Ardmore) in Hermosa selling for $2.1M, 548 Marine in Manhattan Beach at $2.65M, 588 Rosecrans at $1,545,000.  All of these numbers would have been unheard of 18 months ago and many of these homes likely would have remained on the market for some time….but not these days.  Buyers should be somewhat cautious and remember that these market conditions won’t be around forever.  Sellers on the other hand likely will not see an opportunity like this again for quite a while and should take full advantage of the incredibly favorable market conditions.

 

 

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
