Winter may be the best season to sell your Palos Verdes luxury home. As many of you know, Charlemagne International Properties makes tracking the local luxury housing market quick and straightforward with our "Little Yellow Slider." When the market heats up, the slider moves toward a sellers' market. When cooling conditions prevail, the slider moves toward a buyers' market. You can take the market temperature with a quick glance. December 2017 Market Sliders: Interestingly, the luxury market cooled off during the peak summer selling season due to many new listings hitting the market. On the other hand, the fall and [...]

  Tuesday is tour day for new listings in Palos Verdes. This morning, the list is rather short due to entering the after Thanksgiving holiday countdown, and the seemingly permanent condition of inventory shortage for Palos Verdes and other cities in the South Bay of Los Angeles. Today, there is only one new listing I need to preview for a prospective buyer. However, on the upside, it's a gorgeous day, so perhaps as I meander along Palos Verdes Drive South, I will capture a few more coastal photos I can use on my blog to display the beauty of our [...]

From Contract to Close–Whether Selling or Buying

By | September 28th, 2017|An Agent's Life, Buyer Tip, Front Page, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes View Homes|

Palos Verdes Oceanfront homes in Rancho Palos Verdes. A typical day in an agent's life will involve an extensive list of "value-added" tasks. For example today we are waiting for a buyer's acceptance of a seller's response to the buyer's request for repairs. It has taken us a week of back and forth to reach an agreement. An appraisal is due, and late last night a former client who is about to begin a major remodel turned to me for help because the appraisal for his current home came in unacceptably low. He asked us to review it [...]

Palos Verdes Luxury Homes Market Report for September 2017

By | September 7th, 2017|Buyer Tip, Front Page, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes, Seller Tip|

Sold by Charlemagne International Properties   It was exactly one year ago when my market indicator (The Little Yellow Dot) signaled a shift in the luxury home market on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The Little Yellow Dot edged closer to a buyers' market after many months of indicating a neutral market for luxury properties. September 2017 statistics for luxury residences priced over $3MM reveal the high-end home market is still locked in a buyers' market.   During August 2017 The Little Yellow Dot moved slightly away from a hot buyers' market, due to a few more sales and [...]

The South Bay of Los Angeles is in the middle of a hot and muggy spell, but the same is not true for the luxury home market on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The dog days of summer find the luxury home market in a cooling trend and heavily favoring buyers. With 65 Palos Verdes luxury homes for sale priced at or above $3,000,000 and only seven sales in July, it is easy to understand why sellers must invest more time in preparing their home to meet the challenges of a slowing luxury market. On the other hand, buyers now have [...]

Luxury Apartment Living in the South Bay of Los Angeles

I have a client who is in the market to invest approximately $5MM in real estate. He is selling a commercial building and wants to roll the proceeds over into another property. Simple enough. The dilemma he faces is where to make a long term investment that will require minimum management but provide a decent return on investment. Retail seems like a high-risk venture with the disruption online shopping is creating in the industry. Will gas stations become a thing of the past as the 21st-century advances? As the economic climate changes so do an investors' goals and guidelines. One [...]
