Palos Verdes Real Estate

New Listings are Up, Pending Sales are Down – What does that mean for you?

It’s June and the beginning of the “summer selling season” for real estate in Valmonte.  Instead of a bunch of flowery talk about how great everything is about the market, I’m going to go out on a limb and dare to be more realistic than perpetually optimistic.  The local real estate market is setting up for a price correction.  The bigger question, and one I don’t have an immediate answer to,...

Realistic Pricing? At Least for a Couple Months Anyway

Valmonte Remains a HOT Market

Things aren't showing any signs of slowing down here in the Valmonte real estate market. In just the last few weeks we've seen most new listings go into escrow with multiple offers.  The sweet spot seems to be move-in ready homes under $1.6 million.
