I wrote the original version of this article in 2011; it remains a perennial favorite for web search results, so perhaps it is time for a 2016 update on luxury home sales on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

First, the criteria bar for luxury homes has moved–upward to $3,000,000.  That change gives an indication of the condition of the uber-luxury home market in Palos Verdes.

Original Article:

It’s a big decision to purchase a high-end luxury home.  Every buyer wants to make an informed and wise choice.  Although luxury homes over $2,000,000 are scattered throughout all four cities on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, there is no doubt some neighborhoods generate more luxury sales than others.

Buying a home is always based on personal decisions but it is also important to select a location that supports the purchase price, and this usually means there are similar “like kind” homes in the immediate area.  Just for fun, I searched the Palos Verdes home sale statistics for 2011 to discover which neighborhoods topped the luxury home sale list.  Here is the big reveal:
