  Palos Verdes Real Estate One Minute Update January 2018 #palosverdeshomes #realestate #normatoering #brokerlife #charlemagneinternationalproperties A post shared by Norma Toering l Real Estate (@normatoering) on Jan 9, 2018 at 11:10am PST As we begin 2018, my thoughts are turning to how I can better serve my clients this year. 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 [...]

  Palos Verdes One Minute Real Estate Market Report for November 2017.🏠🍂#realestate #charlemagneinternationalproperties #normatoeringrealestatebroker A post shared by Norma Toering l Real Estate (@normatoering) on Nov 7, 2017 at 10:13am PST There are currently 176 single family homes for sale in Palos Verdes. There are 70 Palos Verdes single family homes in escrow with accepted offers, and 608 single family home sales recorded YTD in 2017. Low inventory appears to be the New Normal market condition for Palos Verdes as the number of homes for sale has not varied much during the past two years. The single-family home market in Palos Verdes remains a seller's market due to supply (low) and demand (high). If you're considering selling a Palos Verdes property, do not let the approaching holiday season deter you. I showed a new listing Sunday afternoon that came on the market two days earlier. The agent has two offers and [...]

  Fall is here! My morning walk required a sweater for the brisk 58-degree day. After the languid last days of summer, I think the real estate market is ready to perk up and make the most of the final quarter of 2017. I bumped into an agent who has been in the business longer than I have, and she said, "This has been the quietest summer I can remember."  Yes, although I was busy and productive with listings and sales, the market took a bit of a breather during the summer months of 2017. Inventory remains tight with only 183 single family homes listed for sale. 89 Palos Verdes single family homes are in escrow with accepted offers, and 553 PV single family have sold year-to-date. The luxury market indicator shows a slow movement back to a neutral market after spending most of the summer in a market favoring [...]

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.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as is the value of a view. Placing a value on views is one of the great puzzles of selling view homes on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. We have a plethora of picture perfect views. There are varying degrees of views, there are up close and personal views, and there are some homes with pastoral views (some buyers consider this a non-view when compared with a panoramic view). What's an agent to do when asked to place a value on a view? The Views of Palos Verdes: The Queen's Necklace view is one of the most sought after on the entire Palos Verdes Peninsula. Many residents of Palos Verdes Estates are fortunate to enjoy this amazing sight from the comfort and convenience of their home. It is a combination of Pacific Ocean meeting the encircling lights of the Beach Cities and beyond all [...]

Palos Verdes homes in Rancho Palos Verdes   Winter's cool temperatures may still be with us, but the Palos Verdes single family home market is already heating up as spring approaches.  My "Yellow Slider" market indicator moved a couple of notches back toward a stronger sellers' market as we rolled into March 2017. However, the market indicator for the Palos Verdes luxury home market slipped deeper into the neutral zone.

By | March 12th, 2016|Palos Verdes Homes with view, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes|

It appears the heat is rising in the already "Hot" Palos Verdes and South Bay of Los Angeles housing market. The effect of our annual spring surge is already in the air and reflected in our "famous" market snapshot indicators of local real estate market trends.

Sellers, the market recovery from the recession years is complete and in some neighborhoods prices exceed their 2007 levels. The real estate market, like all markets, is constantly changing, and we know nothing lasts forever. If you're thinking of selling a Palos Verdes property, market conditions are still in your favor. Supply is low and demand remains high. As a side note, the Palos Verdes Unified School District was recently named one of the top twenty school districts in the United States.
