As it looks like you are from outside of the South Bay, I wondered if you may have also considered Hermosa Beach for you or your clients? Hermosa Beach is a smaller town and has a bit more of a "Beach Town" feel, but prices, especially for entry level condos are much lower and the options far greater. Manhattan Beach has very few condos available and they are rarely on the market. Hermosa has a few larger condo complexes in great locations. The names of the complexes are the Appletree, the Commodore, and the Victorian and there are a few 2 bedroom condos on the market in the low $400Ks which is a price range that hasn't been seen in a while.
