"Forget the Lawn, I Want a View"

View from Palos Verdes home

 

Buyers change their minds.  It's their prerogative and it's also human nature.  The buyer who begins a home search with a big lawn as one of her must have items, may decide to shrink the size of the lawn and increase the size of the view once she has gazed at the view from a few Palos Verdes view homes.

 

People move to Palos Verdes for a variety of reasons.  The stellar school system is a huge draw for families with children.  My four children graduated from Peninsula High and my oldest grandson will graduate in June as one of the class of 2015's valedictorians.  There's no question the schools are a top reason buyers desire to live in Palos Verdes.

 

The views may be the reason so many residents refuse to leave their home on "The Hill" once their children are off to college and careers of their own.  The twinkling lights of the Los Angeles Basin at night is a sight to behold.  The sound and smell of the ocean complement the wide water views of so many Palos Verdes homes.  There are mountain, island and harbor view homes.  There are ocean front homes, there are hilltop homes, and some homes have a view of the whole spectrum of views.  I recall a Rolling Hills home with a view of the ocean and Catalina Island from the front and a view of city lights and mountains from the back.

 

If you are considering purchasing or selling a Palos Verdes view home, we'd love to assist you with finding your new home, or the buyer for your current home.  Adding a view to your list of required amenities is one you won't regret and one you can't add later.

Let's go look at some Palos Verdes homes with a view!
