Will Millennials Buy Boomers’ Big Houses?

Since I make it a habit of following real estate trends, I've been wondering who will buy the baby boomers' big houses when it's time for them to downsize.  I'm sure you've seen trending articles stating Millennials do not want the family china, antiques, and other stuff filling their parents' home. The big question is, will they want to move into the family home, or purchase one of their choosing? Perhaps smaller and closer to the urban center--time will tell. The giant boomer generation owns two out of every five homes in the United States. Let that statistic sink in [...]

Rolling Hills Estates and PVP Single Family Homes Snapshot July 2018

There are over 200 homes for sale on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, but only 22 single-family homes are listed for sale in Rolling Hills Estates and the unincorporated neighborhoods on the Palos Verdes Peninsula (Westfield, Academy Hills, etc.) along Palos Verdes Drive North. Nine RHE and PVP residences are in escrow with accepted offers, and 42 single family houses have sold in Rolling Hills Estates and PVP unincorporated areas year-to-date.

Rolling Hills CA Market Snapshot July 2018

I showed four Rolling Hills homes last weekend. Yes, it was hot, but my out of the area buyer was in town, and we had to seize the opportunity to view a few homes in the buyer's location of choice. I was delighted to have four houses to show in the buyer's price range. The inventory in Rolling Hills has crept upward during the past several months. There are now 36 Rolling Hills properties listed for sale. At the time I pulled the July statistics only three Rolling Hills residences were in escrow with accepted offers.  12 Rolling Hills homes [...]

Rancho Palos Verdes Homes Market Snapshot July 2018

Thinking of selling or buying in 2018? It's not too late to catch the wave! I'm sipping a tall glass of iced sun tea as I write this on a hot and humid Saturday morning. July's heat is more than making up for our colder than usual June! Does weather affect the Palos Verdes real estate market? Yes, but not nearly as much as in other parts of the U.S. Once in a while I will have a showing cancellation due to extreme heat, but those are rare. Many homes have air conditioning or ocean breezes--sometimes both, making touring houses [...]

The market [...]

Palos Verdes Luxury Homes Real Estate Snapshot July 2018

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 [...]

Rolling Hills, CA Real Estate Snapshot June 2018

Rolling Hills experienced a mini-surge in new listings during the past few weeks. The new listings coupled with only three homes in escrow with accepted offers pushed the Rolling Hills market into a strong buyer's market. This may be a temporary imbalance due to the high number of listings during the summer selling season, and buyers may absorb the new inventory, but we'll have to wait and see. Meanwhile, now is an excellent time to be a buyer if you're in the market to buy a Rolling Hills home. There are 37 homes for sale in Rolling Hills. Three houses [...]
