How to Find the Right House for You in Palos Verdes
People move to Palos Verdes for many different reasons. Many come for the award winning Palos Verdes Unified School District; others come for the spectacular ocean and city light views. Equestrians are delighted to find a wide variety of horse properties available. The natural beauty of hills and ocean vistas send a tantalizing invitation to prospective homeowners to call this gorgeous peninsula home.
Currently the least expensive single-family home for sale on the Palos Verdes Peninsula is listed for $599,900. The property is a short sale, has three bedrooms and is located in the Eastview nieghborhood in Rancho Palos Verdes. Conversely, the most expensive home carries a price tag of $53,000,000 and is a seven acre estate in Rolling Hills with nine bedrooms and 25 bathrooms!

So how do you find the right Palos Verdes neighborhood for you? If you know your needs and price range it will be relatively simple to select the homes that best meet your criteria. A current prospective buyer wants a view, 4000--4500 sq. ft. and a remodeled interior. A quick search of the MLS yields only a few homes to view. Searching for a home can be that simple. However, if your wants and needs are fluid and your budget is expansive your search can become a part-time job.
If you are new to the Palos Verdes Peninsula the first thing you should do is take a driving tour of the area. There are four cities each with their own flair and flavor. Once you select the city that best meets your needs your search for a home will become easier.
