I'm hoping the sixth time spells success as I'm at least the sixth listing agent for this desirable one-house-away-from-the-ocean bluff lot.  This time around I have price on my side.  There was never any question the location is prime, and it is located in San Pedro's premiere ocean view community of South Shores--it doesn't get any more coastal than this.   The price is now $495,000--in days gone by it was listed for $998,000. It is definitely on sale! The cul-de-sac street is lined with home worth $2,000,000 and up on the ocean side of the street so there is nothing shabby about the location.  The seller is highly motivated to sell, but as we know motivation levels fluctuate as market and financial conditions ebb and flow.  Today, it's available, tomorrow, who knows?   Don't let this...

On the morning of August 6, 1846, Juan and Jose Sepulveda were at the Port of San Pedro and spotted an American Warship and sent word to the local Mexican army. This ship, commanded by Commodore Robert Stockton, had been sent to San Pedro by President Polk, to seize California in the name of the United States, after hostilities had begun with Mexico on April 25, 1846. On August 11th, Stockton began to march his troops from San Pedro to the pueblo Los Angeles. The local Mexican soldiers, unprepared to defend the city, fled to Mexico, and on August 13th, Stockton rode into Los Angeles without firing a shot. Stockton, returning to Monterey, left Lt. Gillespie in charge of Los Angeles. Lt. Gillespie proved to be particularly unsuited to command the city, and after issuing a number of very d...

No doubt you can smell the ocean while standing on the lot.  You can also hear the waves as they break against the rocks below the bluff. You can engage the sense of sight also--if you build a two-story home you'll be able to SEE the Pacific Ocean!  Check out the aerial map.   Norma Toering & Team just reduced the price by $50,000 and this incredible lot is now offered at $550,000.  Located in the sought-after South Shores area of San Pedro and just minutes from Trump National Golf Course, shopping and easy freeway access.  If you're in the mood to build your dream house, this could be the place!

In 2009 one of my clients decided to purchase San Pedro income property.  Being a landlord is not for everyone, and my client decided it is not a hat that fits comfortably on her head.  She's a busy working mom and has precious little time to fit tenants into her demanding schedule.  Today, we listed her two-on-a-lot property at the fantastic price of $299,000.   The front house is an Old Spanish charmer with red tile roof, front courtyard and a plethora of Old World Charm.  The rustic back house offers privacy from the street and a big front porch for enjoying coastal California weather.  Each house has two bedrooms and one bathroom.    For more information contact Norma Toering & Team.

  The Angel’s Gate Lighthouse in San Pedro, California has been around since 1913. The lighthouse was designed differently from the other California lighthouses. The Angel’s Gate Lighthouse is situated on a forty-foot concrete square. The framework is made out of steel in order to endure the savage seas. The lighthouse still stands defiantly against the rough seas to this day! For more information regarding the Angel’s Gate Lighthouse please visit the link below: http://www.sanpedro.com/sp_point/aglight.htm What a beautiful piece of history right in our own backyard!
