It's 6:30 AM Tuesday morning and my list of new Palos Verdes home listings is printed for the weekly Tuesday broker open house tours. I was struck by the variety of styles and prices the Palos Verdes Peninsula has to offer to prospective home buyers.
Our tour will stop at a two level home in upper Lunada Bay at a two level contemporary ocean view home. The property is similar in size, condition and view to one a client is considering selling in the near future, and that's the reason I will check it out today. We don't have a buyer, but it's a great comparable property for a prospective seller and I owe it to my client to be well informed about recent sales and current competition.
Another stop in Lunada Bay will be to see a one level home in need of updating. The location is prime Palos Verdes Estates in lower Lunada and within easy walking distance of the neighborhood elementary and high school. We have clients always interested in finding a great buy in Palos Verdes with lots of upside potential once remodeled and this one looks like a good candidate. Priced at $1.4M in a neighborhood that is comfortable with homes in the $3M and up it is a must see.
A villa with a view in Rancho Palos Verdes is next. With over 5,000 sq. ft. to peruse we will enjoy our time spent in this luxury home priced at $3.3M. We have an a few international buyers and this one may be of interest but we'll need to check it out to make sure it meets all their criteria for a luxury home in Palos Verdes.
A fabulous golf .course home priced just under $3.4M will make a nice option for those same international buyers as well as give us a good comparison in their price range.
I'm really hoping the new listing in Rolling Hills Estates will be perfect for buyers who want to purchase this year--time is growing short. The price, size, location and condition are a good match but I'll need to walk the floor plan before we set an appointment.
A Rolling Hills horse property is next on the list. Priced at $2.9M with horse facilities that include a riding ring makes it high on our list to check out for clients with horses and a good buy for Rolling Hills horse property.
A price reduction of over $100k will have us stopping to see if this Rancho Palos Verdes home might work for any of our clients.
Last on the list (because it's open late) is a gated Italian villa in Rancho Palos Verdes listed at $4M. International buyers coming next month love the idea of a gated property as they will not be full time occupants and like the idea of closing the gates for added security while they're away.
Broker tours are not as well attended as years past. Here is why Josh and I are tour regulars. Photos do not tell the complete story, you need to walk the property with your own feet and look at it with your own eyes with your clients in mind. That's one of the things we provide for our clients. We use our time and save theirs whenever possible. That's one of the many ways we raise the bar on customer and client service.
