Nothing Under $1.5M?

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Recently we got a somewhat desperate message from a buyer: Is there any chance we can get into Manhattan Beach west of Sepulveda under $1.5M?

This came near the culmination of a long and fruitless search for properties in that price range.

The reluctant reply: No, not really. You'll have to compromise on location or price.

As is so often the case in this market, those buyers wound up compromising on both.

But (the good news) they did make a deal west of the highway.

As we write today, there are only 2 SFRs west of Sepulveda active under $1.5M:

3601 N. Poinsettia (3br/1ba, 1070 sqft.), a small and largely original cottage with a few obvious liabilities, not least the shared driveway.

The location is way over by Rosecrans in the Tree Section.
