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!  Clearly, there is a home in Palos Verdes for almost every budget.

 

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.

 

All four Palos Verdes Peninsula cities share the same school district. Here’s a quick synopsis of the four cities: 

 

Rolling Hills is a gated community and home to some of the finest equestrian estates in Southern California.  Homes prices range from 2.1M to 53M.

 

Rolling Hills Estates is a mix of equestrian properties and traditional suburban homes.  Prices range from 949K to 3M.

 

Rancho Palos Verdes is the largest city on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and offers a wide variety of styles and price range.  Prices range from 600K to 12.5M.

 

 Palos Verdes Estates hugs the west side of Palos Verdes and borders Redondo Beach.  Prices range from 1M to 10M.

 

Matching buyers with the right home is a bit like putting a puzzle together.  At first it may seem like an impossible task but as each piece falls into place the task becomes easier.  It is a delight to see the process take shape and move to completion.
