Manhattan Beach New Listings (6/19-6/20/21)

By Dave Fratello | June 19th, 2021

It's like a new world this week, as June 15 brought the end of many public COVID restrictions, including many pertaining to touring homes for sale.

Open houses have been "legal" for a few weeks now, and are gradually becoming more of a part of the regular flow for buyers in the market.

But here's something we definitely do not like: Virtual and 3D tours are also becoming scarce.

Virtual walkthroughs are good marketing. Most potential buyers are glued to screens, trying to figure out a house as best they can before deciding to visit. This won't change suddenly just because open houses are a thing again.

For months now, we've come to expect 3D tours and other virtual tour options as nearly automatic features of a new listing. This week, only 2 of 10 new listings have any virtual tours, and both are short videos with music (snore).

Below, click any address link to view all photos and property details. Listings appearing here come from the whole MB market and may or may not be represented by MB Confidential author Dave Fratello and Edge.
