A Good Time to Look in the Trees

By Dave Fratello | March 24th, 2016

manhattan beach tree section real estateInventory of homes for sale in the Tree Section has now grown to 28 active listings. And that's before any new entries for the coming weekend. [UPDATE: The total hit 30 by Friday morning.]

Last year at this time, buyers looking in the area had 13 homes to choose from.

Given that this is our town's primary west-of-Sepulveda family neighborhood, this should be a good sign for home shoppers.

The expanding inventory... not as great of a sign for sellers.

3009 North Poinsettia Avenue Manhattan Beach CASome of the absolutely prime homes have come off the board. For instance, 3009 Poinsettia (4br/4ba, 3600 sqft., asking $3.700M) and 2100 Pine (5br/5ba, 3180 sqft., listed at $3.099M), both custom builds (resales) that sold pretty quickly after coming to market in the last few weeks.

And new construction in the southern Martyrs area (ocean views, walk to town – hardly what you think of with "Tree Section") at 716 12th has just gone into escrow (second try), with a list of $4.499M.

Dig deep, because half the Tree Section listings today are asking very close to $3M or higher.
