My thoughts on everything from Real Estate in the South Bay beach cities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and El Segundo California to anything else that strikes my fancy.



Pool Area Manhattan Village For those of you not familiar with Manhattan Village it is the only gated community in the South Bay/Beach Cities. The Village is a mix of single family homes, Court homes(townhomes) and Patio homes ( townhomes) and is located behind the Manhattan Village Mall. The Vi...
Manhattan Beach June 2007 There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to the California real estate market.. On one hand the media is talking about the worst disaster for housing in 20 years and then you see a little article saying that prices are up again in Los Angeles County. When looking a...
   Manhattan Beach: A view of  The StrandSeems as if Spring has sprung and with summer here the market is cooling.  Definitely some changes in the last few weeks.. inventory continues to increase but in the upper price range. Townhomes in the Sand Section are still selling well. But overall pendi...
Sand Dune Park... Manhattan Beach  After I posted Beach Cities Sold May 2000-2007 I had people ask about home prices in the 1990's. That always makes me laugh.. as if numbers from 10+ years ago have much to do with today. It reminds me of people who constantly talk about how much they weighed 10...
  Rents in the South Bay/Beach cities are among the highest in Los Angeles County and in California.

Hermosa Beach Sand Section Homes. There have been a lot of stories in the media about the California real estate market this week. Headlines scream.. number of sales down 34%.. (courtesy of the LA Times on June 14, 2007) However the question is.. did the volume of sales really fall that much and ...
Lots of stories in the news about falling home sales and growing foreclosures. Some stories point to the downfall of the housing market while others seem to view things with a more local perspective. Dan Green in his blog The Mortgage Reports has an interesting take on the cities that RealtyTrac...
 This is what Los Angeles and most of Southern California looked like when I was a kid in the 50's.  The streets were wide and most of the homes were either Spanish  or Craftsman  style with wide lawns in front.  My aunt lived in Huntington Park in a bungalow just like these homes along the Avenu...
   The sky was clear but it rained last night in Long Beach ... Parker's Light House was the place to be if blogging is the name of your game.  Hats off to Jeff Turner for a fabulous evening.. he did a bang up job with some great food and libations for all.   The Queen of Long Beach, Laurie Manny...
   The market is showing signs of slowing down a bit... which is normal for this time of year. As the school year ends people start planning vacations and house hunting becomes less intense then during the Spring. Inventory has increased slightly over the last month, sales and pendings have slowe...
