Most of the Action is Cuts & Dropouts

By Dave Fratello | November 6th, 2018

714 N Dianthus Street Manhattan Beach CANovember is beginning to take shape as expected in the local real estate market.

More listings are either cutting or quitting than coming to market.

New deals are harder to come by.

Soon, the election will be over, Turkey Day will be upon us and much of the real estate market will go into a restless slumber.

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

6 new listings

5 new deals (escrows)

12 price cuts (1 via re-listing)

5 listings dropping out, at least temporarily, by going "on hold," withdrawing or expiring

Pictured above is 714 N. Dianthus, new construction in the Hill Section, which just cut $200K in Week 4 on the market.

Here are the 12 most recent price cuts (email subscribers will need to view this post online to see the list and links):

You can see every active listing with a price cut (newest first) on this page: Newest Price Cuts

We have noted this rule before. If you've got a listing out there in November/December, and you decide to keep it going, it's because you want to sell.

Some sellers finally begin to see in November that they may not have a deal yet because of price. Hence all the cutting.

If, as a seller, you don't like the environment at this point, you drop out or let the listing expire. Be ready to fight another day.

Sales are happening here and there, of course. It's not all crickets out there before Turkey Day.

Below are the most recently posted deals/new escrows.
