Okay, apparently the word is out; Palos Verdes is a fabulous place to have a second home. In the past, I’ve sold a few second homes on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, but usually to locals in need of a little cottage by the sea or a condo to stash guests, in-laws, children ready to launch a career and so forth.
The trend I’m observing this year varies a tad; the buyers are from Los Angeles County, but from interior locales and desire a home along the coast. Perhaps I’m pushing it to say “new trend” as year-to-date Norma Toering & Team sold two properties meeting the above criteria. One buyer discovered Palos Verdes while attending a business function at Terranea. The other was lured by the pull of the ocean after being introduced to the area by a friend.
Now comes the blogging plug–both buyers found me as a result of my incessant praise about the Palos Verdes Lifestyle on my various blogs and website. Never doubt consistency has it rewards. Today, I received an invitation to attend a book release party at a local coastal home because, “…as a prominent local blogger we’d love to have you come by for photos and a write up?” Interesting timing, as last night I finished a novel, so I’m ready for a new book, and I’m always hungry for new blogging fodder. Sometimes, things just fall into place.
