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.

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.
