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.

Palos Verdes Luxury Homes Market Report for September 2017

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 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 [...]

By | June 20th, 2017|Buyer Tip, Front Page, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes|

The Palos Verdes luxury homes real estate statistics show it is moving toward a market favoring buyers.  For sellers, this means your luxury residence will face stiffer competition and must stand head and shoulders above the crowded Palos Verdes luxury home real estate market.
