Calm Before the Storm?

By Dave Fratello | January 31st, 2014

Excited for the Super Bowl? The two top seeds engaged in combat, best offense against best defense, storylines galore.

But that's just 3 hours.

It's after the Super Bowl that things get exciting in Manhattan Beach real estate. Or should get exciting.

You saw some inventory creep out into the market in January. And you saw a bunch of those new options get snapped up.

Today, January 31, we're at 27 total listings citywide.

All week, we've watched for a typical week's trickle, or maybe that Super Bowl flood – but it's just been drips. Only 3 new listings all week are truly new to the market:

1019 8th (3br/2ba, 1720 sq. ft.), asking $1.749M (pictured)

3207 Vista (3br/2ba, 1600 sq. ft.), asking $1.399M

1617 Mathews (5br/4ba, 3400 sq. ft.), asking $1.849M

Who wants to debut with an open house during the Super Bowl, after all?

So this feels like the calm before the storm.

We're aware of all kinds of properties in a "soft" pre-marketing stage, getting ready to spring out for our "real estate Spring" starting next week.

When they declare a winner in East Rutherford, will that ring a (metaphorical) bell and unleash the inventory?

For our buyers, here's hoping yes. When pigskin season ends, it's time to get ready to rumble in MB.
