Fall is Price-Cutting Season

By Dave Fratello | October 25th, 2019

It's getting to be that time of year again.

As we reach the end of October and roll into November, the market will cool, just like (presumably, some day) the weather.

428 32nd Street Manhattan Beach CAIf you are still on the market meaning to sell, you'll feel right away that the best options are to (1) make price cuts and (2) try to work out the best deal possible when you've got a buyer on the line.

In the past 7 days in Manhattan Beach, we have seen:

6 new listings

15 price cuts

3 listings quit the market

One of those to quit was featured here only last week. 329 4th had just made a big cut to $200K under acquisition (June 2019 acquisition) and seemed to be putting out a call for all offers ASAP. (See "Big Cuts Might Draw Offers.") Instead, they're off the MLS now.

Below are the Manhattan Beach listings with the most recent cuts, updated automatically (email subscribers will need to view this post online to see the list):
