Palos Verdes Luxury Leases

I recently had a call regarding leasing a luxury home in Palos Verdes.  The caller said she would like a property "on the water" and  with at least four bedrooms.

After I gave her a few prospective properties, along with the monthly rent, she said she "needed to regroup" and would get back to me.  I haven't heard from her.  Yes, leasing a luxury home in Palos Verdes can be expensive, but it can also appear to be a bargain if you've already shopped leases in Malibu or Beverly Hills.

Luxury Leases in Palos Verdes for $8000 per month and up:

  • Palos Verdes Estates has four luxury leases available ranging from $9000 to $50,000 per month.
  • Rolling Hills has two luxury properties for lease priced over $8,000.
  • Rancho Palos Verdes also has two luxury leases currently available.
  • Rolling Hills Estates and the unincorporated area of the Palos Verdes Peninsula have no luxury leases available at this time.

Curb Appeal - Maximize Your Home Value

Is your home ready for its closeup? The "Fifteen Seconds of Fame" rule certainly applies to selling your home since nearly 50% of prospective buyers drive by their favorite properties BEFORE they schedule an appointment to tour the home with their real estate agent.

Yes, that's right. After locating your home on the Internet and deciding it is in the right price range and the right neighborhood many buyers will check it out from the curb. Sellers, you can either win them here or lose them. Over the years, we've had many buyers eliminate a home from our show list based solely on curb appeal.

Don't let the curb appeal of your home cost you showings and even a sale. Every home's curb appeal can be improved no matter the style or age of the property. We can help you maximize the curb appeal of your home before you put it on the market.  Looking for a top agent to sell your Palos Verdes luxury home?
