The Palos Verdes luxury home market experienced a noticeable uptick in activity at the close of summer with a few homes going off the market and the number of high-end homes in escrow nearly doubling.  With those numbers, my Little Yellow Dot indicates the luxury home market is still favoring buyers, but moving closer toward a neutral market favoring neither the seller nor the buyer.   The Rolling Hills market (primarily high-end properties) reflects a similar shift due to a reduction in the number of homes for sale, and an increase in the number of residences in escrow with accepted [...]

  September is here, and I love the cooler mornings and evenings. There seems to be some cooling happening in the local single-family homes real estate market, too. Is it weather related? Maybe, but with back-to-school and a three-day weekend, it's difficult to pinpoint the reason. Most likely, it's an aging seller's market operating with a lower buyer demand--supply and demand define the market, and the Palos Verdes single-family real estate market is approaching a neutral market favoring neither the seller nor the buyer. Inventory is remaining steady with 216 Palos Verdes single family homes listed for sale. That's the [...]

The summer of 2018 in Rancho Palos Verdes can be summed up with "Hot Market and even Hotter Weather." This RPV pool looked so inviting on a sizzling summer day.   Rancho Palos Verdes continues to be the hottest market on the hill, per my Little Yellow Dot market slider, with 107 single family homes for sale and 51 single family residences in escrow with accepted offers. 228 Rancho Palos Verdes single family homes have sold thus far in 2018.   Other Palos Verdes Peninsula Real Estate Snapshots for August 2018: Rolling Hills and the $3 mm and [...]

Rolling Hills Real Estate Snapshot August 2018

By | August 29th, 2018|Buyer Tip, Front Page, Horse Property, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Rolling Hills|

  Rolling Hills has 34 properties for sale, four in escrow with accepted offers, and 12 Rolling Hills residences have sold thus far in 2018. Supply outstrips demand in the Rolling Hills real estate market, and this imbalance indicates a strong buyer's market. However, due to an uptick in the number of homes in escrow, my Little Yellow Dot slider shows the buyer's market is inching toward a neutral market favoring neither the seller nor the buyer as summer draws to a close.

Queen's Necklace view from a Palos Verdes Estates window. There are 54 Palos Verdes Estates single-family homes listed for sale per the local Multiple Listing Service. This number has remained in the 50 to 60 range for the past several months. These consistent statistics indicate Palos Verdes Estates homes are being listed and sold at a rate that keeps supply and demand balanced. My "Little Yellow Dot" points to a stable market, but with some cooling and movement toward a neutral demand in the Palos Verdes Estates single-family real estate market. 18 Palos Verdes Estates single-family homes are [...]

  The luxury home market for homes priced over $3,000,000 on the Palos Verdes Peninsula showed a slight uptick in accepted offers, but the market continues to favor buyers due to the number of luxury homes listed for sale in comparison to the number of homes sold. Supply far outstrips demand in the high-end real estate market on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. However, there are seven Palos Verdes luxury homes priced over $3,000,000 in escrow with accepted offers, but 67 luxury properties are actively for sale. 34 Palos Verdes luxury homes ( $3 mm+) have sold thus far in 2018.

  It's been a sizzling summer on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, but the temperature of the local real estate market has cooled as the thermometer headed skyward. April's market slider was 1.8 on my Little Yellow Dot sliding scale; August comes in at 2.7 by the same measurement. This change translates to a slight move toward a balanced market favoring neither the seller nor the buyer. However, we are still in a seller's market albeit a weakening one. The spring market compared to the summer market of 2018:   There are 216 single-family homes for sale on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. [...]

Will Millennials Buy Boomers’ Big Houses?

Since I make it a habit of following real estate trends, I've been wondering who will buy the baby boomers' big houses when it's time for them to downsize.  I'm sure you've seen trending articles stating Millennials do not want the family china, antiques, and other stuff filling their parents' home. The big question is, will they want to move into the family home, or purchase one of their choosing? Perhaps smaller and closer to the urban center--time will tell. The giant boomer generation owns two out of every five homes in the United States. Let that statistic sink in [...]

I showed four Rolling Hills homes last weekend. Yes, it was hot, but my out of the area buyer was in town, and we had to seize the opportunity to view a few homes in the buyer's location of choice. I was delighted to have four houses to show in the buyer's price range. The inventory in Rolling Hills has crept upward during the past several months. There are now 36 Rolling Hills properties listed for sale. At the time I pulled the July statistics only three Rolling Hills residences were in escrow with accepted offers.  12 Rolling Hills homes [...]
