A Rolling Hills Residence The supply of homes for sale in Rolling Hills, CA, is as low as I have ever seen in nearly 30 years of selling houses on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Not surprisingly, the number of RH properties sold in 2020 topped 30 sales. That is likely a record-setting number as well. At the beginning of February 2021, only eight Rolling Hills residences were listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service. Seven Rolling Hills properties were in escrow with accepted offers. Why the sudden surge of sales in Rolling Hills? The most logical reason is the pandemic. I can't think of a better place to social distance. If you want to avoid crowds and can afford the luxury of living in Rolling Hills, a forever home located in the gated community may be one of the wisest moves of your lifetime. Rolling Hills has many fabulous [...]

At this time, I'm fairly certain most of us are happy to be alive and surviving life in the times of the coronavirus. The little luxuries of life are appreciated (and noticed) daily, and life on the Palos Verdes Peninsula certainly has its own luxuries both large and small.

Bluff Front Homes in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA The top real estate story for the Palos Verdes area continues to be one of low inventory. At the beginning of this month there were 77 Palos Verdes single-family homes list for sale, and 73 PV single-family homes were in escrow with accepted offers. New inventory is absorbed as soon as it hits the market. The limited supply continues to drive prices higher. A quick glance at my Little Yellow Dot shows the market is a strong one for sellers.

Rolling Hills Estates is known for its equestrian properties. How low is the supply of homes for sale in RHE and PVP, you ask? Only three single-family homes were listed for sale at the beginning of the month. That is the lowest inventory count I recall during my 29 years in the Palos Verdes real estate business. There are only three RHE and PVP single-family homes for sale, and ten houses are in escrow with accepted offers. It is easy to see why my Little Yellow Dot shows a strong seller's market in Rolling Hills Estates and the Palos Verdes Peninsula's unincorporated areas. If you are considering selling a Palos Verdes property (or a property in the South Bay), the local market will welcome it with showings and most likely an offer or two. There is a back-log of buyers eagerly perusing each and every new listing. One of my [...]

A Coastal Sunrise in Rancho Palos Verdes Happy New Year! As we wrap up the first month of 2021, housing inventory remains at an all-time low, and with the anticipated spring surge of buyers, the competition for houses on the Palos Verdes Peninsula is expected to intensify. If you're contemplating selling your RPV home, now is the time to prepare it for this hungry market. At the beginning of January 2021, on the day I pulled real estate statistics from the Multiple Listing Service, only 41 Rancho Palos Verdes single-family homes were listed for sale, and 38 RPV houses were in escrow with accepted offers. Those numbers are why I referred to this market as hungry; single-family homes are gobbled up quickly if they are priced right. If the thought of preparing your home for sale makes you shudder, then it's time to ask for help. I have experience on [...]

Williamsburg Lane, Rolling Hills, California There is so much to say about the past year, but we made it though it, and those words reflect our resilience and determination to handle whatever comes our way. We may not have enjoyed the restrictions, but one thing I'm sure of is we are all stronger as we move forward. The Rolling Hills real estate story is playing on repeat throughout the Palos Verdes Peninsula as we continue to deal with low inventory. There are currently 12 Rolling Hills properties for sale. Six Rolling Hills residences are in escrow with accepted offers. It is easy to see why Rolling Hills begins the new year with a strong seller's market with those numbers. Here's an unsolicited testimonial (the best kind) that appeared on Next Door. My daughter forwarded it to me as I'm not on the App. I'm so very grateful for happy clients [...]

Here Comes the Sun! 2020 is now in the history books, and what a long and convoluted chapter it will be! Moving on, the top Palos Verdes real estate story for 2021 is a continuation of depleted inventory. When I pulled the January 2021 real estate statistics there were only 74 single-family homes listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service. No wonder the competition for single-family homes often results in multiple offers and overbids. With only 74 single-family residences listed for sale and 70 PV homes in escrow, it's easy to see why my Little Yellow Slider reflects a strong seller's market.

Rancho Palos Verdes luxury home with a view The definition of luxury is wide and varied. Certainly, the word takes on new meaning during a pandemic and times of economic uncertainties. Although a price tag is often used to define luxury, some of the best luxuries in life are priceless. I remember when I first moved to the Palos Verdes Peninsula, I was not that impressed with the homes. I left a 1929 character home in Florida and purchase a rather non-descript ranch-style home in Palos Verdes. The architecture was disappointing, but the natural beauty of the area impressed me with its magnificence. The views, the ocean, the open spaces, and the hiking trails were a source of constant pleasure and joy. Those are luxuries without price tags. However, we know coastal living is expensive. A panoramic view is costly, too. Let's look back at 2020 momentarily and review a [...]
