Last week's triple-digit heat wave reminded me how thankful I am to live in a coastal community. I don't know about other agents, but my client and I braved the weekend heat wave and toured several Palos Verdes homes for sale. Weather rarely deters a determined buyer (and their agent), but temperatures in the 90s, an unrelenting sun, and houses with no air-conditioning did call for several bottles of water and a shade break or two.  :) The luxury home market is experiencing increased inventory and shrinking sales. There are 65 Palos Verdes luxury homes priced over $3,000,000 listed for sale [...]

  Will you miss this window of opportunity to sell your Palos Verdes property? Is now a good time to sell my Palos Verdes home? I'll let the numbers do the talking.  :)  You be the judge and let me know what you conclude. Palos Verdes market snapshots for April 2018: During a recent conversation with a mortgage broker who was purchasing one of my listings, he commented he was advising "everyone" to sell now. Inventory is low; prices have more than recovered from the recession a decade ago. I will add real estate tends to rise and [...]

    The weather today is hotter than the single-family residential market on the Palos Verdes Peninsula--and that's hot! Thanks to Santa Ana winds and a longtime smoldering seller's market both fall into the "hot" category. How long either will last is hard to predict, but one thing I'm certain of is neither one will last forever. Notice the "Little Yellow Dot" indicates the heat of the seller's market is intensifying as we enter the spring and summer selling seasons. Most people prefer to move during the summer, especially if they have children in school. Let's review other sub-markets within [...]

Fall is here! My morning walk required a sweater for the brisk 58-degree day. After the languid last days of summer, I think the real estate market is ready to perk up and make the most of the final quarter of 2017. I bumped into an agent who has been in the business longer than I have, and she said, "This has been the quietest summer I can remember."  Yes, although I was busy and productive with listings and sales, the market took a bit of a breather during the summer months of 2017. Inventory remains tight with only 183 [...]

From Contract to Close–Whether Selling or Buying

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 [...]
