An English Castle Perhaps our homes really are our castles; although most houses do not have a moat and drawbridge, the need for a safe place to rest our heads and soothe our souls has never been more prevalent in my lifetime. It's no surprise the local Palos Verdes real estate market continues to flourish. There are 50 Palos Verdes luxury residences priced at $3,000,000 and up for sale.

There are 123 Palos Verdes single-family homes listed for sale. 121 Palos Verdes single-family residences are in escrow with accepted offers, and 449 houses have sold thus far in 2020. Not too shabby for a year filled with economic uncertainty due to an ongoing pandemic, a contentious presidential election, and a housing market that appears undaunted by it all. Per Zillow, "The typical home value of homes in 90274 is $1,899,089. This value is seasonally adjusted and only includes the middle price tier of homes. 90274 home values have gone up 5.3% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 6.9% in the next year." That's a healthy increase in price during these uncertain times. Likewise, the forecasted increase in 2021 Palos Verdes house prices reflects the strength of the current housing market. Zillow's information for Rancho Palos Verdes (zip code 90275) reflects similar results and future predictions: [...]

Rancho Palos Verdes Luxury Homes   In an across the board seller's market on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Rancho Palos Verdes is the hottest market on the hill. The pandemic effect of tighter inventory coupled with steady demand resulted in Rancho Palos Verdes having more single-family houses in escrow than there are for sale. That's a sizzling seller's market!   Here's why my Little Yellow Dot is indicating RPV is in a hot seller's market:  48 Rancho PV single-family homes are for sale. 60 RPV residences are in escrow with accepted offers, with 203 sales recorded year-to-date. The August 2020 sold statistics are almost identical to the 206 RPV single-family homes sold by August of 2019.  During this stay-at-home summer, many prospective buyers are shopping online for a house with room for a home office, space for a home theater, or more outdoor gathering areas.   More Palos [...]

Rolling Hills homes come in one color only--white, and isn't it lovely?   As the summer of 2020 winds down, the local real estate market appears to be heating up while maintaining a healthy balance between available inventory and buyer demand. The Rolling Hills real estate market has 15 active listings for sale, and four RH properties are in escrow with accepted offers. Thus far in 2020, seventeen Rolling Hills homes have sold. Last year at this time, only ten Rolling Hills properties were in the sold column. One of the 2020 trends in real estate is the request for more outdoor living space, and this is likely due to the pandemic and the need to spend more time at home during work and leisure. Our homes are not only our offices but also our entertainment and recreational sites. It comes as no surprise as lifestyles make dramatic [...]

What a view!   The Palos Verdes Estates seller's market is refusing to give up its long run even when threatened by a pandemic and concerning economic news. Compared to last month, housing inventory is down, and sales are up. Those factors moved my Little Yellow Dot market indicator deeper into a market favoring sellers.     August 2020 finds 48 Palos Verdes Estates single-family homes listed for sale. 37 PVE residences are in escrow with accepted offers, and 58 Palos Verdes Estates single-family properties have sold year-to-date. Last year at this time, 103 single family PVE houses were in the sold column, so even though the market is maintaining a healthy balance between inventory and sales, the total sales number is significantly lower than August 2019.   More Palos Verdes Real Estate Snapshots for August 2020:   If you would like more information about recent real estate [...]

  The local Palos Verdes real estate market, including the single-family luxury market, appears to be oblivious to world events (catastrophes, perhaps) as it continues to grow stronger as the summer progresses.
