Rancho Palos Verdes luxury home with a view The definition of luxury is wide and varied. Certainly, the word takes on new meaning during a pandemic and times of economic uncertainties. Although a price tag is often used to define luxury, some of the best luxuries in life are priceless. I remember when I first moved to the Palos Verdes Peninsula, I was not that impressed with the homes. I left a 1929 character home in Florida and purchase a rather non-descript ranch-style home in Palos Verdes. The architecture was disappointing, but the natural beauty of the area impressed me with its magnificence. The views, the ocean, the open spaces, and the hiking trails were a source of constant pleasure and joy. Those are luxuries without price tags. However, we know coastal living is expensive.

I don't know about you, but I am ready to wrap up the year 2020 and relegate it to memories past. However, one of the big pluses of this pandemic is the strength of the local Palos Verdes real estate market. The market earned Five Stars from me for sloughing through the past nine pandemic months with strength and vigor. The showings and sales continued without missing a beat. Prices edged higher as demand increased. Buyers and agents donned masks, booties, and hand sanitizers with high hopes and little fanfare as they followed the new rules of buying a house during a pandemic. It was a year in my real estate career that stands apart from anything else I've experienced in my nearly thirty years of selling property in Palos Verdes and the South Bay of Los Angeles. Inventory for single family homes remains low with 113 residences for sale [...]

What an incredible year this has been so far--just six more weeks until we greet 2021! With a vaccine on the horizon, we may finally turn the long-anticipated corner on the pandemic that played havoc with the economy, and our daily lives. The housing market in Palos Verdes never quivered. Instead, it continued its steady climb to new heights while the supply of homes struggled to keep pace with the demand. My takeaway is home has never been more important or fulfilled so many roles for homeowners. Home offices, homeschooling, home movies, and home-cooked meals increase the emotional and financial value of having a place to call your very own. There are currently 115 single family Palos Verdes homes listed for sale. 99 Palos Verdes residences are in escrow with accepted offers, and 580 single family residences sold year-to-date.
