Working and living in a beach community, much of the appeal, and what buyers are searching for are views of the ocean. Many listings tout their panoramic ocean views, whitewater views, Catalina views etc so why can’t I seem to find a picture of it? Buyers these days are savvy and understand that realtors often use words like cozy or quaint when they mean small, charming to mean original condition, etc. so when they can’t see the view, they just may not believe it has the view. We are not only selling homes in Manhattan Beach, but a lifestyle and if a picture is worth a 1000 words, this is a missed opportunity.
