If you're going to try to sell during the quieter Summer months, you had better be ready to sell.
Show that you mean it.
Almost half of the most recent sales (new escrows) in town came within a week of their actual marketing dates. (That includes this Tree Section listing at 1825 Walnut, asking $1.379M.)
At a time of burgeoning inventory and a modest sales pace, that's remarkable. Feels like the old days... for those sellers.
Not at all incidentally, 4 of the 5 sales we will point to below were priced under $1.600M. That's considered to be the more "affordable," lower tier of the Manhattan Beach real estate market. For all of 2016, out of 214 closed sales to date in MB, just 62 (29%) sold at $1.6M or below.
