We see a lot of homes here in Manhattan Beach. But we've never seen one like 743 29th, Dave's new listing in the Tree Section. This home is both old and new. It's newly built, 100%, but its art and ambition… Read more

Inventory is loosening up a bit here in Manhattan Beach – still cramped in general, but better than at any time this year, and higher year-over-year as well. But there's one place where that's not true:… Read more
