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 have sold year-to-date.  My "Little Yellow Dot" slider for Rolling Hills reveals the area is in a strong buyer's market and presents buying opportunities for buyers.  Supply and demand are out of balance. Why? Inventory is up, and absorption remains slow. Prices are up, and buyers are becoming more selective [...]

I've been traipsing up and down the hills of Rolling Hills in search of a luxury horse property with stable accommodations near the house--the prospective buyer does not want to venture to the bottom of the canyon to tend the horses. I'm also on the hunt for a fixer Rolling Hills property with pool, view, and room for horses. As you can imagine, these buyer requests ensure I preview nearly every Rolling Hills horse property that comes on the market. I'm sure if I wore a "Fitbit" my Tuesday (broker open house day for new listings) total of steps would set a new personal best. Here's the scoop on horse properties for sale in RH: 34 Rolling Hills residences are for sale. Most are zoned for horses, but not all are suitable for horses. Some are "Improved" meaning there are existing horse facilities. Some are unimproved, meaning there are currently [...]

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. Sports and [...]

Over the years it has become apparent, there are a plethora of ways an agent can enhance their clients' well-being in financial matters as well as from an emotional point of view. Let's face it, selling a house is stressful even under the best of circumstances. Preparing a property to go on the market can take weeks of planning and work if not months. There are so many decisions to make--should you paint, replace the carpet, refinished the wood floors or even delve into remodeling the kitchen and a bath or two. The exterior landscaping must be assessed. The local real estate [...]

City View From Rolling Hills Home

This post has an alternate title of "What To Do When You Want It All When Buying a Home on the Palos Verdes Peninsula." Obviously, that title is a bit too long.  :) I am working with clients who must have a view, 3000+ sq. ft. of living space, horse property, and room for a pool and guest house. The redeeming factor is they are willing to remodel and add the pool and guest house in the future. We are in escrow on a property that meets those requirements, but it also has several issues we are working to resolve. My take on buying real estate is you can have it all, but expect to compromise on price or condition--maybe both.

"You have how many horses?" I asked the prospective buyer to repeat her reply as I wanted to make sure our less than clear cell phone connection wasn't playing tricks with my hearing. "Six," she replied. "That's what I thought you said. That's a lot of horses, but yes, I can show you properties in Palos Verdes, notably Rolling Hills, that will comfortably meet your equine needs." And so we were off to look at horse properties in Palos Verdes after tightening up her requirements and price point. At our first meeting, I presented the prospective buyer with a copy of the Palos Verdes Trail Guide that shows the plethora of riding trails lacing the hills and canyons of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. I prefer to show rather than tell when it comes to providing information about the available equestrian trail options in Rolling Hills and other Palos Verdes cities. [...]
