Multiple offers and sales closing well over the list price are again the norm this Spring in the north Santa Monica market.

This dirt is hot!

251 24th is a two-story Spanish style home on the corner of 24th and Georgina that listed 10 days ago for $5,995,000. $6.3, or better, was the counter offer to all bidders. It’s a very romantic, emotional home which makes pinpointing the value difficult but $6.3+ may be a new record price per square foot for a home with no view on less than a quarter acre lot.

311 10th was sold by Pence Hathorn Silver in an off-market fashion and closed 10 days ago with little fanfare. It is a concrete and stucco contemporary design with a nice ADU and a swimming pool.

339 10th is a basic 1,900 sq ft 3 bedroom 2 bath that listed for $3,250,000, generated 11 offers and is rumored to be under contract for $3.6ish.

307 25th closed a few weeks ago in another off-market, pre-completion Pence Hathorn Silver transaction. It is a very architectural 3 level home with striking features and beautiful infinity edge pool and spa.

526 23rd listed a few weeks ago for $8,250,000 and sold within days in a competitive, multiple bid setting. It’s a three-level home with beautiful finishes that is closing for $150,000 over the list price. 6,700 sq ft with a pool and a pool house. Very cool house – great for entertaining.

517 11th is a single-story English style home that came on the market for $3,295,000. It had 4 offers and will close at $3.4ish
