  The South Shores neighborhood of San Pedro is, in my opinion, an undervalued coastal community.  Where else along the coastal region of Southern California can you purchase a bluff front home offering unobstructed ocean view for under $2,000,000?  Those opportunities are far and few in between. The topography of South Shores is flat along the coastline and quickly changes to hilly as you move away from the water.  This affords most homes in the neighborhood a view.  The lots we have for sale are located on a cul-de-sac in the upper or hilly section of the South Shores neighborhood.  If you dream of building a coastal home these lots are worth checking out. The two adjacent lots are $300,000 each, see more photos and the full details on our website.  For more information contact Norma ...

  There's a new listing on the bluffs above the Pacific Ocean in the South Shores neighborhood of San Pedro.  I snapped these photos from the deck at today's open house. The one-level home is listed for $2,800,000 and located on Paseo Del Mar.  Just down the street the homes at The Estates at Trump National are selling in the four million and up price range.  Yes, there's a difference between San Pedro and Rancho Palos Verdes but it's the same Pacific Ocean coastline views for a lot less money. If you're interested in seeing this spectacular view with your own eyes, I'll arrange a private showing.  Bring your camera! - Norma (310) 493-8333   South Shores San Pedro homes for sale:

Distressed home inventory seems to be disappearing at an ever increasing pace leading some to wonder if the days of short sale and foreclosure "deals" in San Pedro being a thing of the past?  As of November 5th there were 7 bank owned homes on the market and as of November 21st only the home at 2525 Denison is still active on the MLS.

  The best economic indicator I have are my clients. When my phone and email box show a flurry of inquires and calls, I suspect buyer confidence is on the rise. Last week two of my clients in different business sectors, inquired about purchasing a business with underlying real estate. Savvy move, in this real estate agent/broker’s opinion.   Josh and I previewed one of the properties of interest located in the downtown area of San Pedro. The downtown area has stood poised on the edge of revitalization for at least two decades. I opened a small antique and vintage jewelry business in the town center when I first arrived in Palos Verdes. Progress was made during the ensuing twenty plus years, but the recession arrived, businesses faltered and growth came to a grinding halt.   Signs of li...

  Josh and I previewed commercial property in San Pedro this week for a client interested in work/live space.  Since we were only a few blocks from the LA Port we decided to cruise by the area and snap a photo of USS Iowa in her new permanent berth in San Pedro.   As the LA Times reported on July 7, 2012, "The Battleship Iowa, originally commissioned in 1943 and among the biggest U.S. warships ever built, opens today as a floating warship museum in San Pedro's Berth 87. The ship is one of 48 that have been donated to coastal communities in need of tourism and upgraded waterfronts."   Judging from the number of cars in the parking lot on a Wednesday afternoon it appears the museum is attracting a steady stream of visitors.  It was reported over 18,000 people toured the ship during the fi...

  SAN PEDRO CA INVENTORY SHORTAGE CREATES PROBLEMS FOR HOME BUYERS   Not too long ago, buyers weren’t ready to buy.  Even one year ago, you almost had to twist a buyers arm to help them understand what a fantastic climate it was in the housing market for them.  It was a “Buyers’ Market!”  Now, I emphasize “it was!!”       Here we sit with historically low interest rates of 3.25% on FHA conforming loans and guess what?  Buyers are out in droves!  Somehow they got the message and they recognized it was the right time to buy!! But is there anything to sell them? Not really.        In fact, usually each week when we have broker’s tour of new listings in our region there are anywhere from 5-10 usually.  Within the last couple of months, we are lucky to see 2 per week!  Homes are selling firs...

After several years of watching the South Bay real estate market decline, we are now seeing prices steadily climbing in areas like San Pedro, the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the Beach Cities due to great interest rates and lower inventory. Both buyers and sellers have recently asked, “What kind of real estate market are we in here in the South Bay?” Simply put, there are three types of real estate markets: a buyer’s market, a seller’s market and a “neutral” market, where supply and demand are pretty much “in balance”. A buyer’s market is one in which there are ample homes for sale and not a lot of competition. When homes are languishing on the market, sometime for months, that would signal a buyer's market. Buyers have more choices, sellers may be feeling desperate and if they truly need...

With the recent news of Councilman Joe Buscaino sending out the Request for Qualifications to commercial developers for the redevelopment of Ports O’ Call Village in San Pedro, I was anxious to see San Pedro’s latest addition on Harbor Blvd. and 22nd Street, Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles. It's amazing to see how the transformation of Harbor Blvd is turning out, with its beautiful illuminated palm trees lining the Cabrillo Walk way, and now, how the people at Crafted turned a 1940’s warehouse into a nice market place in San Pedro with a growing art culture. Recently, Crafted was featured on Forbes’ website in an article titled “Ten Things You Can’t Miss In Los Angeles Before Summer Is Over,” which explained how Crafted offers a permanent marketplace where local artisans can display...

The USS Iowa was the lead ship of her class of Battleships. She was built in 1940 and was nicknamed “the Battleship of Presidents” She carried President Franklin D. Roosevelt to a famous meeting with Prime Minister Winston Churchill of England and Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union. This meeting was held in 1943 in Casablanca.
