By | January 25th, 2018|An Agent's Life, Beach Cities Luxury, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes|

The surge in Manhattan Beach home prices a few years ago delivered some spillover buyers to the Palos Verdes Peninsula as they searched for more affordable luxury homes in the South Bay of Los Angeles. It may seem odd to see affordable and luxury in the same sentence, but high-end home buyers are always in search of top value for dollars spent. As time passed, luxury home prices in Palos Verdes crept upward, and there was some leveling off in the luxury home markets of the beach cities. Charlemagne Int'l Properties defines luxury homes as those properties selling at or above [...]

Sustainable Luxury Homes

By | December 14th, 2017|Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes|

One of the things I appreciate most about luxury homes in Palos Verdes is the use of timeless materials during the construction. Marble, limestone, granite, quartz, and hardwood floors will last for generations to come. The initial choices (and expense) are more than justified by the longevity of the materials. I had the pleasure of living in a 1929 home in St. Petersburg, Florida. The wood floors were original and beautifully restored by the previous owner. The bathroom tiles were original as were the pedestal sinks. I upgraded the kitchen with a professional Wolf six-burner stove, a commercial Traulsen refrigerator/freezer, [...]

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.

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 [...]
