Chasing Your White Picket Fence Dream in 2020 Keeping up with the local real estate market in Palos Verdes during this pandemic is a stream of never-ending surprises.

  The local Palos Verdes real estate market appears to be oblivious to world events (catastrophes, perhaps) as it continues to grow stronger as the summer progresses. Inventory is still shrinking, and demand remains steady. A glance at my Little Yellow Slider shows it edging toward a more robust seller's market as we enter August 2020. There are 133 Palos Verdes single-family homes for sale. 105 PV single-family residences are in escrow with accepted offers, and 297 single-family properties closed escrow thus far in 2020. Last year at this time, there were 271 homes for sale, 91 houses in escrow, and 370 single-family properties sold as of August 2019. The Little Yellow Dot hovered around "3," indicating a weaker seller's market than we are experiencing in the middle of a pandemic. No doubt, the reduced inventory is playing a vital role in the strength of today's local real estate market. [...]

  View this post on Instagram   New Showing Procedures in Place During the Pandemic. It’s not business as usual. #palosverdes #pandemiclife #realestate #showingyourhome #normatoeringbrokerowner A post shared by Norma Toering l Real Estate (@normatoering) on Apr 28, 2020 at 10:17am PDT You're not alone if you are curious about the effect the Coronavirus Pandemic is having on the local real estate market. While history will record the complete story, early opinions project the impact on housing will be less severe than the effect on the stock market. Our homes have become our shelters from the storm raging throughout the world. It's where we feel safe, and that emotional value is impossible to quantify with a dollar amount.  Home is where many of us now work, school our children, and care for those we love. The value of "home" encompasses much more than a structure and the land beneath it. [...]

Snapshot from a walk through the South Coast Botanic Garden. "Hope Springs Eternal"  Alexander Pope   April will be a crucial month for the local Palos Verdes real estate market. Although real estate agents are deemed essential workers, there are still many sellers and buyers who elect to employ a wait and see attitude when it comes to selling or buying a property. Rest assured, if you decided to move forward with a purchase or a sale, we have stringent guidelines to follow when showing a home. I recently conducted a showing via FaceTime. The prospective buyer was able to ask questions during the home tour and request to revisit rooms and areas of top interest. It was the next best thing to being there in person. As many of you know, I've used narrated walk-through videos for my listings for nearly a decade, so the transition to [...]

Dear Readers, Let me acknowledge the world is experiencing events I never expected to see in my lifetime. The stock market is reeling and reacting to the latest news daily. I'm focused on remaining calm and relying on my common sense as I consider the ramifications the coronavirus will have on the real estate market as well as on my clients. Whatever the effect may be, we can take precautions to lessen the likelihood of spreading the virus. It's not a time for business as usual, but a time to make sure we observe the recommended preventive measures. As always, the financial health of my clients is my top concern, and now I can add your physical safety is of equal importance. On the day I pulled statistics for this month's real estate snapshot, there were 142 single-family homes for sale on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Eighty-two single-family residences are [...]

What Should I Expect From My Real Estate Agent?

A complete marketing plan involves much more than a sign in the front yard.   Those last century real estate marketing expectations of sticking a sign in the ground, posting a few photos on the Multiple Listing Service, and holding an open house or two, do not suffice in the digital marketing age.  A savvy agent will still make those old school marketing moves for her clients. Also, her marketing repertoire must include a social media blitz, and videos featuring the best assets of a seller's property. The agent should have a website page dedicated to the property, and last but not least, a visible presence on the multitude of real estate sites such as Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com, and other sites buyers visit when they start their home hunting quest. Likewise, today's smart sellers are inclined to consult real estate sites when they are ready to sell and [...]
