Palos Verdes Luxury Home For Sale   On Tuesday mornings, I am always anxious to check to see what new listings are on the broker open house tour.  Yesterday, as is my habit, I took my second cup of coffee upstairs and opened up the local MLS open house tour schedule.  It was all pretty routine until I began selecting homes to include on our weekly trot around the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

Showings happen all hours of the day.   Perhaps you fell in love at first sight.  Or maybe it took some time for those feeling to emerge, but if you're like most homeowners, you love your house.  After all, it is home and the place where many milestone moments in your life have taken place.  There are memories to be dealt with.   If you're ready to sell it, it's time to sever the heartstrings and take a long hard look at those emotional ties. Yes, this is a bit of a breakup. It's time to shed some light on the flaws, deal with the deficiencies and acknowledge it is time to move on. Leaving gracefully is always a challenge.  Do you simply walk away, or do you engage in some [...]

The decision to sell your primary residence is a life-changing event, especially if it was your home for several decades.  Not only are there preparations required for the sale, there are also a plethora of self-preparation stages an owner must go through in order to become the seller of a house rather than the owner of a home. Moving through the stages of selling a property can be emotionally and physically taxing.  It is a daunting task to wade through years of accumulated stuff, not to mention the storehouse of memories and decision each item requires.  Do you keep it, donate it, or toss it?  When one evaluates the possessions accumulated over the years we can't help but realign the associated memories in our mind.  This is especially true if the house was your home for many years. There's no overnight solution, but by breaking your move into stages you [...]
