There are 113 Santa Monica condominiums/townhouses on the market. They range from one-bedroom, one-bath on Lincoln Blvd. offered at $239,000, to a two-bedroom, three-bath on Ocean Avenue for $3,995,000. There are 48 condos currently in escrow. There were 352 condo sales in 2011, ranging from $137,500 for a studio on Cloverfield, to $5,175,000 for a three-bedroom, two-bath ocean view penthouse on California Avenue. The median condo sales price is $654,500, which is down three percent over the same period last year.

There are currently 98 leases available in Santa Monica. They range from $1,550 per month for a studio apartment on Ocean Avenue, to $145,000/month for an oceanfront five-bedroom, eight-bath home on Palisades Beach Road. In 2011, 630 Santa Monica homes or condos were leased. The highest lease was a six-bedroom, seven-bath on Palisades Beach Road for $60,000 per month, and the lowest was a one-bedroom, one-bath on Maple Street for $1,000/month.

This information is based on MLS records, and are deemed reliable, but not guaranteed. The “median” is the value of the middle home when the homes are arranged in an increasing order of prices.
