Manhattan Beach New Listings (1/27-1/28/24)

The week is a bit slow for new inventory, with more than half the week's "new" listings being reboots of listings that had accrued DOM throughout late 2023 and into this month. We're only featuring one of those below, because they genuinely changed two things: the price and listing agent.

There are a dozen listings vying for buyers' attention this weekend citywide. Open house times for new listings are listed below, but you can also click SEARCHES then "Open Houses" at the top of our site, which displays all the Manhattan Beach open houses. There are also links right at the top to Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach opens.


PLEASE NOTE: Below, we present listings new to the Manhattan Beach market this week, via the MLS. They are listed and brokered by a variety of agents and firms. The name of the listing broker and agent for each property, along with any contact information supplied through the MLS, is displayed with each property, next to the price. Blog author Dave Fratello of Edge Real Estate Agency is not the listing agent unless so stated with the listing. Excerpts of the listing agent's description of each property are provided in quotes.

Click on any property address or photo to open a new page with full listing details, all photos, listing broker and agent information, and other MLS information. Any observations and comments about listings represent the professional judgments and opinions of the author, Dave Fratello, not the listing brokers or agents. Please see our blog disclaimer.
