However, absorption remains relatively steady with 77 Palos Verdes single family homes in escrow with accepted offers. Last month there were 164 single family homes for sale on the entire Palos Verdes Peninsula. We began the month of April with 191 single family residences for sale.

Houses seem to be priced higher, and they are selling fast." I must agree. Due to the limited inventory and high demand, very few Palos Verdes neighborhoods are experiencing a slowdown in the real estate market. Three houses came on the market in the Silver Spur neighborhood, and within a week all three homes were in escrow. The properties were beautifully remodeled, all had views, and my listing had multiple offers, and it would not surprise me if the other listings [...]

Best Fixer Buys in Palos Verdes

  "Are there any good deals on fixer properties in Palos Verdes?" A prospective buyer recently called me with this question. My answer was a cautious yes. After years of a raging seller's market with annual price increases, an underpriced property is a rarity. Thus, future potential becomes the front and center consideration for my fix and flip clientele. Any Palos Verdes fixer property under consideration as a potential fix and flip candidate already has two crucial factors in place:  Location and excellent schools. If a Palos Verdes property hits the market with a stunning view, ample square footage, and an interior begging to be updated, expect plenty of competition because such houses are a rare discovery in this market. If you're waiting for such a find, be patient, your expectations may be ahead of the current market. If you're willing to delve a bit deeper with your vision (and [...]

Will Millennials Buy Big Boomer Houses?

Palos Verdes Real Estate Snapshot for August 2018. A post shared by Norma Toering l Real Estate (@normatoering) on Aug 7, 2018 at 10:33am PDT 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 for a few moments. That's 32 million homes. Here's the article I'm quoting if you would like to delve deeper. Urban living is popular with [...]

When It’s Time to Sell Your Palos Verdes Luxury Home–Do This

Seller Tip: Put your Palos Verdes luxury home on a diet when it's time to sell! Remove the excess furniture and personal belongings. Thin out the overstuffed closets, reduce countertop clutter, and make sure the traffic flow is not obstructed with furniture. Less is more when it comes to selling an occupied Palos Verdes residence. Check the lighting and make sure all lights are functioning. You should consider adding soft white or even pink bulbs to bathrooms and bedroom lights. The right lighting sets the mood for great professional photos and enhances the appeal during property tours. When it's time to move from being a homeowner to a home seller, I can help you set the stage for a successful sale. Book your one-hour free consultation today.

The Tale of a Sale

By | March 8th, 2018|Charlemagne Int'l Properties, Featured Articles, Listings, Palos Verdes Coastal Homes, Palos Verdes top real estate agents, selling your palos verdes luxury home, Seniors Selling Primary Residence|

It may not take a village to orchestrate a successful real estate sale, but it certainly requires a team. I recently sold a home in the Lunada Bay area of Palos Verdes Estates, California. It was my sign in the front yard, but the backstory reflects a much different view. The Seller plays a lead role in every sale. First, they must decide the time is right for them to sell a property. Next, they engage a real estate professional to guide them through the steps of selling, including pre-listing preparation, deciding whether to stage or not to stage the property, and establishing a marketing plan that begins with professional photos. After generating and negotiating offers, an escrow and title company are engaged to help close the sale. Termite Reports, City Reports, Home Inspection Reports and at least 60, yes, up to 60 other items must be checked off the list [...]

The Luxury of Living in Palos Verdes, CA

  I've touted the benefits of living on the Palos Verdes Peninsula for decades, and I'll still step up on my soapbox when given the opportunity to extol the many joys of living and working in Palos Verdes. Many of my reasons are obvious to the naked eye--the coastal location, the stunning views, and the open spaces with hiking trails and beach access. Other reasons are more subtle and become apparent when you become a resident--the local school system, a variety of privates schools, plus the security and safety provided by the four cities located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Although some people believe Palos Verdes is too remote and removed from the urban pulse of Los Angeles, I find the location is, in Goldilocks' words, "Just right!"  The airport can be reached in less than hour and Long Beach Airport offers another choice to Palos Verdes residents.
