I'll make this report short and sweet, at least for sellers, as the Palos Verdes housing market continues to favor sellers as it has for the past several years. Inventory remains low, and buyer demand is high. Palos Verdes Real Estate Sliders for May 2021: A glance at my Little Yellow Sliders for May 2021 will confirm all PV markets, including the luxury market for homes priced above $3,000,000, reflect strong seller's markets. If you're a seller, your market continues; if you are a buyer, patience may be the ongoing game you must play. I've noticed some homes are remaining on the market a little longer, and a few price reductions are happening as well. These two factors may give buyers more choices and negotiating power as we enter the summer months. Price and presentation are key components for sellers when bringing their property on the market. Selling or buying [...]

Queen's Necklace View from a Palos Verdes Home Some people expected the housing market to come to a grinding halt when the Coronavirus pandemic swept through the nation. I, for one, thought selling or buying a home during a national health crisis would fall to the bottom of most people's 2020 priority list. Instead, the Palos Verdes housing market weathered the health plague with continued strength and tenacity. The seller's market continued. Buyers donned masks, gloves, shoe covers, and hand sanitizing wipes as they forged ahead on their quest to find a house in Palos Verdes. Sellers opened their homes to prospective buyers after taking the necessary precautions to ensure a safe showing. It was a bit bizarre to suit up prior to viewing a property, but it also revealed the importance of finding a new home during a time unlike any other. The showings continued. The already depleted inventory [...]

The Palos Verdes Real Estate Market Is Still White Hot

By | April 30th, 2021|Palos Verdes Coastal Homes|

Palos Verdes home sellers have enjoyed one of the longest-running seller's markets in my memory. On the other hand, it's been a long and frustrating quest for buyers in search of a Palos Verdes home to call their own. Many of my buyer clients have tried many times, only to be outbid by other buyers on the same frustrating house-hunting journey. I recently read in the Wall St. Journal about a property receiving 76 offers. I submitted an offer on a PV property that received more than 20 offers! What's a buyer to do? Wait. I know that's not the advice you expect to hear from a real estate broker, but the market will react to the opening of the economy with a gradual increase in inventory as seller's decide now is the time to catch the wave of a still hot real estate market. Quelled fears and rising interest [...]

It's easy to understand why the Palos Verdes Peninsula is considered one of the most desirable areas to reside in Los Angeles County. The coastal location, the open spaces, and high ranking schools all contribute, but for me, it was the natural beauty of the area. While the current seller's market rages onward, and prices continue to rise, more and more Palos Verdes homes are falling into the luxury category with prices beyond $3,000,000. The pandemic with its work from home mandate escalated the need for more space. With theaters and other sources of entertainment, closed home entertainment became the norm. As the world around us changed, the desirability of living in Palos Verdes grew. This is reflected by the number of PV luxury homes (89) sold during the past year. There are 48 Palos Verdes luxury homes for sale. Thirteen PV luxury residences priced above $3M are in escrow [...]

At this time, I'm fairly certain most of us are happy to be alive and surviving life in the times of the coronavirus. The little luxuries of life are appreciated (and noticed) daily, and life on the Palos Verdes Peninsula certainly has its own luxuries both large and small. Little Luxuries of Life The Palos Verdes luxury home inventory experienced a slight increase over last month with 46 PV luxury properties priced at or above $3,000,000 for sale. 12 Palos Verdes single-family luxury homes priced at $3,000,000 and up are in escrow with accepted offers and five luxury residences sold in January 2021.

Here Comes the Sun! 2020 is now in the history books, and what a long and convoluted chapter it will be! Moving on, the top Palos Verdes real estate story for 2021 is a continuation of depleted inventory. When I pulled the January 2021 real estate statistics there were only 74 single-family homes listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service. No wonder the competition for single-family homes often results in multiple offers and overbids. With only 74 single-family residences listed for sale and 70 PV homes in escrow, it's easy to see why my Little Yellow Slider reflects a strong seller's market.

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. A panoramic view is costly, too. Let's look back at 2020 momentarily and review a [...]

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.
