State of Real Estate Sales in Palos Verdes 2007 Statistics

2007 was an unbelievable year for real estate as it grabbed front-page headlines nearly every day.  Sub-prime submersion, buyer bailouts, and other notorious stories unfolded with growing concern for both sellers and buyers. These national stories are important and do have an economic impact, but let's go local for what transpired in Palos Verdes in 2007.

Three key factors have cushioned the fall for the cities of the Palos Verdes Peninsula: Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Palos Verdes Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes.

  1. Coastal Location
  2. Limited New Construction
  3. Award Winning School District

This golden trio provides the pillars that continue to support real estate values in Palos Verdes.  Read them again. 2008 will not see any one of the three change in any significant way.  The market will do what the market is going to do, but it will occur on a local basis; it will not be a uniform national phenomenon.

Palos Verdes Single Family Sales Statistics:

2007:  329 Homes Sold for $1,500,000 or Less

2007:  201 Homes Sold for $1,500,000 or More

2007:  29 Homes are Currently in Escrow

2007:  168 Homes are Currently For Sale

The only sensational story about Palos Verdes properties and homes is the coastal location, the uniqueness of the area, and the stellar schools.  Those are the reasons buyers will continue to purchase Palos Verdes homes in 2008.

Norma, you're fortunate to be in such a beautiful area and to have had a softer "softening" of the market. It seems the higher end market is usually more solid due to the financial stability of buyers and sellers.

Colleen - Yes, although we've had a definite slowdown and the volume of sales is down, prices are holding with only minimal decline--5-8%.  That's not too bad when you consider many homes increased by 100% during the hot market years.
