Manhattan Beach Real Estate

Welcome to your best local resource for all things related to Manhattan Beach Real Estate, MB Confidential!

Here are some of our most popular resources and links for people who are thinking of buying or selling a home in Manhattan Beach, or who just want to track local real estate market activity. Get ready to dive deep!


Manhattan Beach Dashboard

One of our most popular pages, the Manhattan Beach Dashboard offers an instant update on local market activity, refreshed throughout the day. You'll find the 5 most recent listings, new escrows, price cuts and sales. Keep this page in a browser tab and check in often! (We offer Dashboards for tracking other South Bay real estate markets, also.)


The Ticker

The Manhattan Beach Property Ticker is another unique feature of our site, offering a carefully cultivated summary of market activity in a "micro-blog" format. We capture all the comings and goings on the market, and provide context, such as a listing's history, sold price versus start price, or other insights.


The Blog

Manhattan Beach Confidential began as a blog 16 years ago. It remains the definitive Manhattan Beach Real Estate Blog for real estate news and analysis. In addition to twice-monthly Market Updates, it features data, charts, commentary and expert opinion. Each weekend, the blog features the newest listings in Manhattan Beach, with open house information. See more on MB Confidential's history.


Manhattan Beach Median Home Prices

We constantly update data about the Manhattan Beach real estate market. Our page regarding Manhattan Beach Median Home Prices is frequently refreshed with new charts and links to past information about median prices, providing a historical picture for anyone who wants to dig deeply into the numbers.


Manhattan Beach Property Taxes

Another resource we offer is an up-to-date page with detailed information about Manhattan Beach Property Taxes. Here you will find the latest on state property tax rates, local taxes and fees, and everything that goes into your property tax bill. We also summarize the payment schedule and process.


Manhattan Beach Property Info

The City of Manhattan Beach maintains this useful "mapping" tool that you can use to get detailed information about any property in the city. You can learn the recorded lot size and building size, and all of the applicable rules for a new building on the site (height, number of stories, maximum square footage, etc.).


Manhattan Beach Permits, Research and Services

Another useful City of Manhattan Beach page is the Customer Self-Service (CSS) portal. Here you can research public property records (permits, plans, inspections, and more), apply for a permit, report possible code violations, or pay invoices related to building and permitting.
