Regular readers here know that we've got a listing on a downtown-adjacent walkstreet, the home at 233 7th St. in Manhattan Beach.

As is so often the case, the home's appeal is some mix of the home itself and its location.

So, that's how we made our video. Check it out!

South of the Manhattan Beach pier, there's a special appeal to Sand Section homes that seems to propel values up.

617 Manhattan Avenue Manhattan Beach CAOne of the latest, and most interesting sales, is 617 Manhattan Ave. (3br/3ba, 1970 sqft.).

It's a 1980s Spanish that could use a round of updates. Big time.

When it launched at $4.900M, you may have assumed that was a full-lot house (2700 sqft.), but no. Per the MLS, the walkstreet-fronting home is situated on a 1344 sqft. plot of land.

Manhattan Ave., which tends to be busier than Highland Ave. south of the pier, runs along a side of the home.

The listing ran a month with no price cuts, but it turns out that the serious buyer who knocked did take a big discount.

The closed sale now: $4.250M. That's 13% under the asking

329 1st Street Manhattan Beach CAMore than once this past month, we've been in conversation with clients about 329 1st (4br/3ba, 2075 sqft.), for the simple reason that it seemed unusually low-priced at $2.299M. (It's in escrow now.)

Think about that: A single-family home – on a half lot – in the sleepy South End of the Sand Section, offered in the low 2's. (With a glimpse of ocean, to boot!)

How rare, exactly, is that?

Y'know, we love to answer questions with data. We consulted our Advanced Computer Systems.

We found 28 sales of SFRs south of the pier under $3.000M from Jan. 1, 2013-the present. That's about one sale in the area in this price range per 1 1/2 months.

Wouldn't you know it, though – that really overstates how common a property like 329 1st has been:

If you're looking to live by the water in Manhattan Beach, odds are you're going to need to take a look at townhomes.

The density of development by the beach all but requires it. But the good news is that sharing a lot with a neighbor can mean a lower price, overall, for a well-located property.

Not that we should call these options cheap, of course – townhomes have moved from sub-$2M options to $2.5M-$4.0M options in just the past few years, and one big sale has gone even higher recently.

There's some inventory now. Let's take a look: 

2416 Highland Avenue Manhattan Beach CA2416 Highland (3br/4ba, 2350 sqft.) is a boldly designed, yet functional modern with some really great views.

Yes, like roughly half the view townhomes in Manhattan Beach, it's on a street that gets serious…
