As regular readers here know, MB Confidential proudly sponsored this year's MB Yuletide 5K.

This past Saturday was the 13th annual running of this unique, signature Manhattan Beach event.

This year, we had a gorgeous sunset, cool but not cold weather, a wide-open flat, wet sand surface to run on, and hundreds upon hundreds of people clad in glow necklaces and ready to go.

What's that? You missed it? No worries. Below, enjoy our brief video capturing this year's event. (Mobile and tablet users will have to use this link instead.)

If we don't catch you here on the blog or in town in the next couple of days, here's wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season.

We'll look back at the highlights of 2013 as the…

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.)

Here are links to the 2 other properties mentioned in the video: 201 18th (list: $12.875M) and 228 18th ($4.2M).

We sang the praises of 18th St. for the first…

It's been about 3 years since the last public auction in Manhattan Beach. Sunday, they held one at  1761 Voorhees in East MB.

The 2009 auction lasted 90 seconds. This one, too.

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…

Someone may complain that we've been stuck in the Tree Section recently, but here we go again.

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,…
