For the past eight years I've defined luxury homes in the local real estate market by one primary criteria--price.  When I began my local real estate blog, Palos Verdes Lifestyle, in 2007 the dividing line was rather arbitrarily drawn at $2,000,000 as the defining value marker.   The definition of luxury homes in the local real estate market remained stable during the real estate recession years and throughout the equity gain-back years.  The price criteria of luxury homes often falls into sub-categories that included coastal location with view, larger than average sq. ft. and superior condition. The rise in real [...]

I'm a bit late in getting this market report out, but last week was graduation week and there were several ceremonies to attend along with celebratory dinners to recognize several new graduates in the family.  We added a political science major, a registered nurse, a Princeton bound high school grad and an 8th grade grad who was recognized for both his academic and athletic prowess.  It was a wonderful week on the family scene, but let's move on to real estate. Here's your June update for the Manhattan Beach luxury home market: 22 Manhattan Beach luxury homes priced over $2,000,000 [...]

The South Bay of Los Angeles is home to Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach, collectively known as the Beach Cities.  If you're following Pacific Coast Highway down the California coast Manhattan Beach is the first city of the trio of South Bay beach towns you will encounter.  Due to its close proximity to LAX  and other urban amenities of Los Angeles, its location demands a hefty price since Manhattan Beach enjoys all the benefits of living in a beach town as well as the convenience of being close to airports, cultural events, world class shopping and dining. The luxury [...]

Your home is probably one of the most valuable assets in your investment portfolio.  When the time arrives to move up, or scale down, it makes solid financial sense to develop a written business plan for selling your house.  After all, time spent planning and preparing before the sale often delivers huge rewards. The Decision to Sell:  Life events are the usual indicators of when it is time to sell a property.  Once the decision is made or if you're undecided about the timing, it's never too early to consult the professional in your life.  A call to an accountant [...]

A Referral Story

By | September 5th, 2012|An Agent's Life, Front Page, Inspiration, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Manhattan Beach Luxury Homes|

Real estate agents spend a great deal of time (and money) generating leads.  Without leads, a full pipeline and a sphere of influence our business is drier than the Sahara in summer.  Without leads we have no one to sell, to close or earn a commission.  We are always selling, but when you think about it, isn't everyone? We must sell ourselves during a job interview, in our relationships and anytime we go after something we really want.  Sometimes it is a simple process, sometimes the selling process is ongoing over a lifetime.  Selling is not an embarrassment, it is [...]
