As Summer winds down and kids get ready to go back to school, we're seeing closings all over town among the early-Summer sales.

Hoo boy, the Hill Section. We can go weeks without a new listing, there might only be 20 sales all year, and then one day: Boom!

We checked, and the current 23 listings in Manhattan Beach with a price cut make up 36% of the inventory (63 listings).

In late July 2019, in a market that was clearly cooling, 49% of inventory had cuts.
