What's The Word On Condos In Playa Del Rey?


I found a few updates in my inbox for condos in Playa del Rey. For anyone shopping for one out here, you might be interested in what’s going on with these.

First on my list is 8601 Falmouth Ave. #215. This one is a just-listed FSBO that’s going for $579,000. You get two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,143 square feet of space. The new beige paint dresses up the place a bit and for dog lovers, you get a built-in doggy door from the bedroom to the patio. (It’s a nice sized 40′x17′.)

Just around the bend is another just-listed FSBO. This one is on 8180 Manitoba, D128. It’s another two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo with slightly more square footage – 1,390. This one has a price tag of $597,654. Sounds like they put in some nice finishes – granite countertops, cherry wood cabinets, and new wood floors. The paint looks snazzy, but that warm yellow tone may not for everyone.

And then, I have another property that’s also got the 8180 Manitoba address. This one is #303 and it has just dropped down from $590,000 to $575,000. Just like the others, it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. You get more square footage here – 1,684, according to the listing. This one has two levels, so it’s more of a townhome. If you look at the pics, you’ll see this property has got a lot of marble and a whole lot of crown molding detail.

Playa del Rey is a little short on similar sales, but 8160 Manitoba, #111 sold for $424,000 in April of this year. It’s another two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo with 1,197 square feet. From a purely price per square footage point of view, it looks like #303 is more right on in terms of pricing than either of the FSBO’s.
