Charlemagne Int'l Properties represented the Seller of this staged luxury home.   Is your home for sale? If so, it is one of only 110 Palos Verdes single family homes for sale on the entire Palos Verdes Peninsula. Yes, inventory continues to be low as we begin the second month of 2018.  I have buyers who are patiently waiting (well, maybe not so patiently as the weeks turn into months, and for some, months into years) for "their" Palos Verdes home to come on the market. They have their financial/loan requirements met, they know the neighborhoods they want, but alas, they have to stand on the sideline until the right house comes on the market. There are currently 72 Palos Verdes single family homes in escrow with accepted offers. 44 Palos Verdes single family homes have sold thus far in 2018.   Palos Verdes Real Estate Market Update [...]

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 [...]

The luxury home market in Palos Verdes finished 2017 in a neutral market tilted slightly in favor of sellers.  After massive increases in the luxury home markets in the Beach Cities during the past several years, it's not surprising the effect has trickled up to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Top 5 most expensive sales on the Palos Verdes Peninsula for 2017: Four of the top 5 luxury home sales of 2017 were located in Palos Verdes Estates and one in Rolling Hills.  The attached link gives details and map location for the most expensive luxury home sales this year.

Winter may be the best season to sell your Palos Verdes luxury home. As many of you know, Charlemagne International Properties makes tracking the local luxury housing market quick and straightforward with our "Little Yellow Slider." When the market heats up, the slider moves toward a sellers' market. When cooling conditions prevail, the slider moves toward a buyers' market. You can take the market temperature with a quick glance. December 2017 Market Sliders: Interestingly, the luxury market cooled off during the peak summer selling season due to many new listings hitting the market. On the other hand, the fall and early winter find the Palos Verdes homes listed in the luxury price range of $3,000,000 and up moving from a buyers' market to a neutral market favoring neither sellers or buyers. The chief reason for the market move is the decline in the number of luxury listings currently on the [...]

  The Palos Verdes real estate market remains in a solid sellers' market for single family homes as we wrap up 2017. December 2017 Market Sliders:   There are 146 Palos Verdes single family homes for sale. 69 Palos Verdes houses are in escrow with accepted offers. Year-to-date 650 single family homes sold in Palos Verdes as of early December. Inventory dipped to a lower number of houses available for buyers in search of a home on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. It may be a bleak new year for prospective buyers resolving to purchase a Palos Verdes property in 2018. It is rare to find an entry single family home priced under $1,000,000. Competition is keen for move-in ready properties priced at market value.  My suggestion to sellers is don't wait for the spring market--the demand is ready and waiting for a supply of fresh homes to become available now. If [...]

2018 Update for Oceanfront Estates Luxury Homes in Rancho Palos Verdes CA

  Last Updated November 2018 Oceanfront Estates was developed by Capital Pacific Holdings at the turn of the century, from the very late 1990s to the early 2000s.  The development company was from Orange County–synonymous with large homes on tiny lots, but in keeping with the locals’ love of the large lot, the developer broke the mold and built large houses on large lots at Oceanfront Estates. The name of the development is not a misnomer.  The ocean views are a sight to behold.  The water is up close and personal.  You can smell it; you can hear it, and often feel the ocean mist on your face. You are far enough above it to be protected from rogue waves and winter storm surges.  The cliffs and bluffs of Palos Verdes provide a nice buffer from the rise and fall of the ever-present tides. To some residents’ dismay, the homes began life [...]

  Tuesday is tour day for new listings in Palos Verdes. This morning, the list is rather short due to entering the after Thanksgiving holiday countdown, and the seemingly permanent condition of inventory shortage for Palos Verdes and other cities in the South Bay of Los Angeles. Today, there is only one new listing I need to preview for a prospective buyer. However, on the upside, it's a gorgeous day, so perhaps as I meander along Palos Verdes Drive South, I will capture a few more coastal photos I can use on my blog to display the beauty of our Southern California coastline. The City of Rancho Palos Verdes currently has sixty-nine single-family homes listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service. Twelve of the properties for sale in Rancho Palos Verdes are listed at or above $3,000,000, placing them in the Palos Verdes luxury home category. The least expensive [...]

  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 [...]

Palos Verdes Horse Trail Guide

"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. [...]
