If you hear there's a home for sale that's literally on
Manhattan Beach Blvd., you're going to be skeptical.
And then you get the pictures. Ugh.
A new listing for an SFR on MBB (872 Manhattan Beach Blvd.
) wastes its first three photos by turning off potential buyers. (Click address for pics and details via Redfin.)
We're showing you #1 here – the (happily) fresh garage door. This is your curb appeal, by the way.
#2 shows the cavernous storage area, and #3 features the somewhat spare grass in the back yard.
Did we mention that the sellers would like $1.247m
of your hard-earned money? Actually, no, we hadn't yet. That'll get you 3br/2ba and 1275 sq. ft.Seems pricey?
Well, it's – gulp – technically, the Hill Section.
But you see, you're not just paying for the house – you can redevelop the property into an office building, thanks to the zoning. Oh, so I needn't worry that there's a house there now, thanks, I'll just build a skinny commercial complex.
MBC is obligated to add this detail – the sellers are two-year itchers. They paid $960k
in Sept. 2005, according to Redfin, so they're currently seeking a markup of 30% (+$287k)
over 2 years.
That's right, they bought at the peak, but still think they deserve 30%. For a property on
MBB, zoned commercial, surrounded by commercial, with these pics. Oh, me.
