Just as we were reflecting on the market softness at the upper end of luxury home sales here in the South Bay, a super luxurious 3-year old Tree section home listed for $6.7 million sells in a week.  Seems like the real estate gods are toying with us.

Another lot sale from Michalski & Fujita, this one an ocean-view Sand section corner half lot at 328 25th Place, Manhattan Beach.  The photo is the original, 1927-built, one-bedroom, 556 sqft (yes, you read that right) home.  Look for a new home from premier local home-grown builder Fluent Homes in 16-20 months.

The current draft proposal to address homelessness in Manhattan Beach is up for discussion and comment at the next City Council meeting, August 21.  The proposal is long on generalities, short on specifics and, worst of all, seems to de-emphasize enforcement of existing city ordinances.  Could make for an interesting meeting.

Our latest new construction sale - 2101 Elm Avenue in the Manhattan Beach Tree section - proves once again the efficacy of our lot sale program.  The original lot owner got multiple offers from developers and a premium price without paying a commission and the winning bidder got a well-located, flat, west-facing lot which they were able to develop into a premium modern farmhouse-style home that sold over list price.  We love it when a plan comes together.
