No matter how many times I've done it, whenever I come over the crest of the hill on Manhattan Beach Blvd and see the Pier and downtown Manhattan Beach CA I get that certain Manhattan Beach feeling. Its not something you can really explain, just a way you feel as in living the SoCal lifestyle.
And there's no better way to actually experience it than by owning a home in 90266. But I assume you expect me to say that because this is after all a Manhattan Beach Real Estate website published by a Realtor!
With July closed home sales in Manhattan Beach CA already in the books, this is a pretty good opportunity to take stock of how the market is looking year to date in 90266 for 2015.
There were 32 closed escrows during July ranging in price from $660,500 for a 2 bedroom condo on Artesia Blvd up to $9.5M for a Walkstreet home in the 100 block. Total dollar amount was $82,997,500 for the month.
By MLS Area the breakdown for July was:
- Sand Section 4
- Tree Section 9
- Hill Section 1
- Manhattan Village 2
- Manhattan Heights/Liberty Village 7
- East Manhattan Beach/Mira Costa 9
FYI, there is no doubt that sales and inventory have both declined compared to previous years. So if you are a buyer, prices are up and sales are down, not so good. For a seller, well its a seller's market.
