Manhattan Beach New Listings (6/22-6/23/24)

OK guys, this happens sometimes. We just couldn't get out on Friday, due to clients' needs.

And, yeah, just last week, we were fuming at L.A. agents who don't know how to make properties available to brokers to see and show. This week, our only complaint is with the (known) laws of physics: We couldn't be in two places at one time.

Still, we've got all the week's new listings below – a Baker's Dozen! – and you'll see that the Sand Section delivered a few new options, as did the Trees. East Manhattan debuted a few lot sales and a couple of condos. Inventory is up to 92 as of Saturday morning.

If you're looking in the Hill Section, please do check out our  listing at 819 11th, open Sat. & Sun. 2-4pm.

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.

There are 100 homes east of Redondo Ave. in the area, but somehow few streets are as nice.

In this case, the original home, as presented, is largely rental-caliber. (Bonus points for the carpet/vacuum patterns; reminds one of the intricate work by groundskeepers on a baseball field.)

21 Laguna Court, Manhattan Beach,  21 Laguna Court (2br/2ba, 1465 sqft.) is a Village Plan 1 that boasts a remodel that is "almost complete."

21 Laguna Court, Manhattan Beach, While that's under way, they're asking for a price that would best the (recent) highest-ever sale for a Plan 1.

Seems like a lot sale, ya think?

1421 19th Street, Manhattan Beach, Look to a nearby listing at 1420 21st (2br/3ba, 1750 sqft.) for a comparison. That home, sporting 80s remodeling vibes and a smattering of virtual staging (how do we feel about that again?), came out asking $2.150M and has just made a deal after a month.

Worth noting: 1420 21st was described as: "Amazing opportunity in the coveted Liberty Heights neighborhood of East Manhattan Beach!"

And here, 1421 19th is described as: "Incredible opportunity in the coveted Liberty Heights neighborhood of Manhattan Beach!"

Similar language. Similar fates?
