Aside from the WOWness of 612 John Street in Manhattan Beach, there were some little deals that glistened under the Southern California sky (even though it was gloomy today). My two observational suggestions are 731 30th in Hermosa Beach, a duplex listed for sale at $799, which could derive enough rental income (around $4000) to cover the debt service (20 % down) and also
760 36th Street in Manhattan Beach which for a single family home with 3 beds in good shape albeit dated, needing some love and updating, is a great value at $1050.

Great Value in Manhattan Beach

This Spanish influenced home has nice curb appeal and has a nice feel to it. Someone could pick this up and make it worth more than the list price without too much effort or $$.
Welcome to my world. A plethora of properties to choose from whether it is to invest or have as your home the South Bay is the place to be.
