For the past eight years I've defined luxury homes in the local real estate market by one primary criteria--price.  When I began my local real estate blog, Palos Verdes Lifestyle, in 2007 the dividing line was rather arbitrarily drawn at $2,000,000 as the defining value marker. The definition of luxury homes in the local real estate market remained stable during the real estate recession years and throughout the equity gain-back years.  The price criteria of luxury homes often falls into sub-categories that included coastal location with view, larger than average sq. ft. and superior condition.The rise in real estate values in Palos Verdes and the beach cities of Manhattan, Hermosa and Redondo require an adjustment in what constitutes a luxury residence.  Last week as we toured new list...

The coastal location of the Palos Verdes Peninsula ensures we will be ensconsed in the marine layer of clouds and fog that roll in like clockwork in June and often hangs around until mid-day.  Yesterday's weather also produced intermittent showers. A few new listings on Tuesday's tour of homes for agents and brokers were canceled due to the rain. However, like the dedicated real estate pros we are, Josh and I ignored the weather and toured five fabulous new Palos Verdes listings. There's beauty to be found everywhere in Palos Verdes, and the grayness of the day added an impressionistic tone to the photos we snapped.

The marine layer along the Palos Verdes coast arrived in May this year making our mornings gray but sunshine usually arrived in time for lunch.  The gray days of late May and our typical June gloom is always a great reminder for buyers to schedule real estate showings for late afternoon or evening if you want to see the view.  For a positive twist on all those gray mornings, it is one of the "perks" of living the coastal lifestyle in Palos Verdes.Luxury homes sales were unaffected by the weather during May 2015 with ten Palos Verdes luxury homes priced over $2,000,000 selling during the month.  The most expensive sale for the month was $4,000,000 paid for a Rolling Hills home.  The sales breakdown by city:  Palos Verdes Estates with four sales, Rolling Hills had three sales, Rolling Hil...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as is the value of a view.  This is one of the great puzzles of selling view homes on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.  We have a plethora of views.  There are varying degrees of views, there are up close and personal views and there are some homes with pastoral views (some buyers consider this a non-view when compared with a panoramic view).  What's an agent to do when asked to place a value on a view?The Views of Palos Verdes:The Queen's Necklace view is one of the most sought after on the entire Palos Verdes Peninsula. Many residents of Palos Verdes Estates are fortunate to enjoy this amazing sight from the comfort and convenience of their home. It is a combination of Pacific Ocean meeting the encircling lights of the Beach Cities and beyond all the w...
