There has been some action in the treasured Teen Streets this year. If you've been looking to get in on one of these sweet blocks near downtown, there have been chances.
Three of those listings have been on 18th St., arguably the best of a small group of streets (16th-20th), mainly because of its unique, winding pathway from Highland Ave. to the beach.
On occasion of a recent visit to 112 18th, the newest listing on the block, down at Ocean Ave., we shot a little video walking along the block.
Here's our brief tour of the block. Enjoy. (Email subscribers, please use this link to see the video.)
We sang the praises of 18th St. for the…

Seems like most of the people we chatted with on site Sunday were observers, no dog in the hunt. People were just curious about how the spectacle of a home auction unfolds.
MBC readers, you were virtually there. You can check out our 4-minute video here. (Dave's intro and postgame added a bit to the length.)
Now, those of you who aren't keen to play the video right now are going to be wondering: How much did it sell for?
Well, MBC isn't one of those sites where you're going to have to wait to find out, or click through a bunch of ads first.
Final sale price: $1.320m.
So, what'd we say…

You're aware of the action on John St. this year, including last week's closing at 1812 John ($1.330m), but there's still one active listing on the best part of John.
For some reason, 1904 John (4br/3ba, 3340 sq. ft.) has lasted nearly 3 weeks on the market. We even heard about it before it hit the MLS, so what does that mean? We're pushing 4 weeks?
John? It didn't sell off-market? What gives?
We took our camera to the scene to help you understand 1904 John a little better. Our new video tour is posted below.
As we noted in our "Weekend Opens" post when 1904 John debuted:
The downsloping lot creates a 3-level layout, with 3br on the entry level, big master upstairs,…

Our recent run of clear days has punched up the value of a good ocean view in a listing. So we trod in on 3 active listings late last week that each feature ocean views as a big and tasty attraction.
Check out our 4-minute video tour featuring the views from each property. (Please excuse the rumply sounds of ocean breezes against our little mic.) See the video embedded below or use this link to go to YouTube directly.
And here's more on each of the listings in the video.

The home itself is a splendid execution of a…

Our short, new video tour this week attempts an homage to the holiday – a little Sand Section cottage with a cabin feel that we found ourselves calling "more Tahoe than playa."
Not quite the flood of new inventory this week that we saw last week, some of which is sold already. To plan out your weekend tours, try this Redfin map list of open houses – you can sort by price or sub-region of MB by clicking the title on a column. Or click here for the more traditional Beach Reporter list of opens (which may not be as complete).
