Palos Verdes Homes Real Estate Update–July 2016

By | July 8th, 2016|Lifestyle in Palos Verdes, Rancho Palos Verdes|

Home sales continue to soar on the Palos Verdes Peninsula as we move into the summer months of 2016. There are currently 242 single family homes for sale in the four cities on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.  The inventory is slowly increasing--we began the year with just under 200 homes on the market.  The increase in inventory caused our "Little Yellow Dot" to inch closer to a neutral market in Palos Verdes.  The Beach Cities also made a slight move toward the neutral numbers. There are 97 single family Palos Verdes homes in escrow with accepted offers.  83 Single family [...]

High-end Homes–Little Luxuries Add Up to Big Experiences

By | June 23rd, 2016|Palos Verdes Estates, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes, Rancho Palos Verdes|

The luxury home market in Greater Los Angeles has no shortage of properties for sale. After all, Southern California is home to Beverly Hills, Malibu and a plethora of other cities with worldwide name recognition. I often wonder why buyers select one luxury home over others with very similar conditions and locations. After decades in the business, I believe it boils down to a prospective buyer's connection and memories of the property. The luxury home market in Palos Verdes currently favors the buyers. My Little Yellow Dot Slider reveals the statistics for single family homes priced at or above $3,000,000 [...]

Palos Verdes Uber Luxury Home Prices Are Escalating

Palos Verdes Luxury Home For Sale   On Tuesday mornings, I am always anxious to check to see what new listings are on the broker open house tour. Yesterday, as is my habit, I took my second cup of coffee upstairs and opened up the local MLS open house tour schedule. It was all pretty routine until I began selecting homes to include on our weekly trot around the Palos Verdes Peninsula. I selected twelve homes to personally tour. Some matched buyers' wants and needs, some were comparable properties for upcoming or current listings, and it's always good [...]

Palos Verdes Luxury Homes – June 2016

What a difference a few months can make in the real estate market. Charlemagne Int'l Properties' market slider for luxury homes in Palos Verdes and Beach Cities clearly shows the once sizzling hot luxury home market in Manhattan Beach. Hermosa Beach and to a lesser degree Redondo Beach has cooled off and moved from a hot seller market to neutral territory. On the other hand, the Palos Verdes luxury home market is getting hotter by the month. Perhaps buyers priced out of the beach cities are making their way up the hill to the higher altitude but lower home prices [...]

Curb Appeal – Maximize Your Home Value

By | May 20th, 2016|Palos Verdes Luxury Homes, Rancho Palos Verdes, Seller Tip|

  Is your home ready for its closeup? The "Fifteen Seconds of Fame" rule certainly applies to selling your home since nearly 50% of prospective buyers drive by their favorite properties BEFORE they schedule an appointment to tour the home with their real estate agent. Yes, that's right. After locating your home on the Internet and deciding it is in the right price range and the right neighborhood many buyers will check it out from the curb. Sellers, you can either win them here or lose them. Over the years, we've had many buyers eliminate a home from our show [...]

I'm going to miss showing and holding open houses at this panoramic ocean view condo located at 3200 La Rotonda Drive in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. Alas, all good things must end, and this one had a beautiful ending for our seller and a lovely beginning for the happy buyers. The remodeled two-bedroom condo sold at the asking price of $799,000 setting a two-year record at the Ocean Terrace complex. It was clearly a home worthy of a new record high price with its forever views and stylish remodel. For more information on selling or buying homes in Rancho Palos [...]

By | December 9th, 2015|An Agent's Life, Buyer Tip, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Norma's Hot Buys, Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Peninsula, Rancho Palos Verdes|

We received our typical end of the year flurry of calls from buyers who are searching for an income property to add to their real estate portfolio or even a new primary residence.  Whether they had their pre-tax appointment with their accountant or decided it was time to upsize or downsize, the end month of December is decision time for many buyers.   Although the holidays are often referred to as "the most beautiful time of the year" they can also be the busiest time of the year for sellers, buyers and their agents.  Sellers who are anxious to receive [...]
