Bet the House #2

By Dave Fratello | January 20th, 2017

This is now edition #2 of "Bet the House," MB Confidential's real estate contest designed to test your knowledge of the Manhattan Beach real estate market.

Below you'll find info on this week's featured listing. You'll be able to review the home yourself, look at the pictures, take into consideration the location and all other factors, then make your best educated guesses of:

1. How many Days on Market will the listing rack up while listed for sale?

2. How many (if any) price cuts will be made before the home is sold (or goes off market)?

3. What will the home actually close for (sale price), if it sells?

Individual entries will be scored based on how close each answer was to the final data for the listing. The full rules and scoring system can be found here.

Like last week, the winner of this week's contest will get a $50 gift card to a locally based family of restaurants. One person who enters within the week-long period that the contest is open will be randomly selected for a $20 gift card to the same restaurants.

Remember: We won't be publishing any data about the entries, except when a sale has closed or the listing has gone off market, and we are declaring a winner.

The winner of the "random" prize for last week's contest will hear from MBC soon.

This week's featured home is presented below. Good luck!
