Palos Verdes Luxury Home Sales--November 2013


Wow! I can't believe I just typed "November" as the title month of this blog post.  2013 blew into town on a real estate wave and took us all for a wild and woolly ride throughout the entire year.  I've never been a part of so many multiple offers in my 20+ years in real estate industry.

If we analyze only the luxury homes sales over $2,000,000 on the Palos Verdes Peninsula we see a recovering market but not necessarily the robust market evident in all sales below the luxury home price line.  Given the stillness and staleness of listings in the luxury home price point as recent as 2011 the high-end home recovery is newsworthy too.

There are four cities on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and here is a snapshot of what happened in the luxury market in each one during the previous month of October 2013:
Rolling Hills Estates:

  • 2 Rolling Hills Estates luxury homes are currently for sale.
  • No RHE luxury homes are currently in escrow.
  • 2 Rolling Hills Estates luxury homes sold during October and 10 RHE luxury homes sold in 2013 YTD.


Rolling Hills:

  • 14 Rolling Hills luxury homes are currently for sale.
  • 1 Rolling Hills luxury home is currently in escrow with an accepted offer.
  • 3 Rolling Hills luxury homes sold during October and 15 RH luxury homes sold in 2013 YTD.


Rancho Palos Verdes:

  • 27 Rancho Palos Verdes luxury homes are for sale.
  • 4 Rancho Palos Verdes luxury homes are in escrow with accepted offers.
  • 2 Rancho Palos Verdes luxury homes sold during October and 19 RPV luxury homes sold 2013 YTD.


Palos Verdes Estates:

  • 21 Palos Verdes Estates luxury homes are currently for sale.
  • 5 Palos Verdes Estates luxury homes are in escrow with accepted offers.
  • 1 Palos Verdes Estates luxury home sold during October and 41 PVE luxury homes sold 2013 YTD.

Rolling Hills--Lesson in Living the Understated Luxury Lifestyle


One of the rewards of previewing new listings is much like Forest Gump's description of a box of chocolates, "You never know what you're gonna get." Yesterday's first step through the front door of 2 Pine Tree Lane in Rolling Hills (the little gated city at the top of the Palos Verdes Peninsula) offered a delightful taste of living the understated Palos Verdes lifestyle.


As the listing agent approached, and while still standing in the entry, I said, "I like it already." Sometimes it only takes a moment. I guess I do believe in love at first sight, at least when it comes to houses. What's not to love about a winding, tree-lined street with a long driveway leading up to the rambling ranch style home?

Then to discover the interior decked out in a refreshing contemporary style with walls of windows displaying views from the hills of Palos Verdes to the coastline views of the beach cities and beyond, well, the place had me at hello (I'm into quoting movies this morning). The 10,000 sq. ft. home is located on 2.63 acres and is filled with not only good design and style but with amenities one would expect to find in a home representing the pinnacle of the luxury lifestyle in Rolling Hills.

From the infinity pool to the indoor racquetball court, the home meets, and perhaps exceeds, the luxury home buyers' expectations. The $8.7M dollar home is offered by Keller Williams.
