Palos Verdes Real Estate Explained

By Keith Kyle

Real estate on the Palos Verdes peninsula isn’t always easy to figure out. When people say Palos Verdes, or PV, it’s not always clear just what they’re talking about. With 4 different cities (really 5 if you include the unincorporated area that is actually called Palos Verdes Peninsula), multiple real estate areas often including more than one city, the entire area serviced by the Palos Verdes Unified School District, various zoning issues including equestrian areas and vastly different areas and neighborhoods (not to mention distinct climates)….how is one able to get a handle on the area?

The map below should help as it’s broken down into both cities and real estate “areas”.
Palos-Verdes-Real-Estate-Map

The pink sections show Palos Verdes Estates and the corresponding real estate numbers used by realtors to break the areas down into similar real estate neighborhoods.  The orange areas show Rancho Palos Verdes which had an abundance of very distinct areas and neighborhoods.  The purple shows Rolling Hills Estates, green represents Rolling Hills (gated community with very large lots) and the yellow is the small pocket of Palos Verdes Peninsula.

July 2013 Home Sales in The South Bay – By the Numbers

July was a record month in many South Bay cities as we saw a multi year high number of new listings, pending homes sales and closed home sales.  This may be the increase in home inventory that eventually balances the market as opposed to the drastic seller’s market at the moment.

Inventory On The Rise In the Beach Cities and South Bay!

It’s taken a while but inventory is finally steadily increasing with 4 straight months of rising number of homes for sale.  July saw the number active homes on the MLS at 583 which is the highest since September of 2012 which was a vastly different market.  The chart below shows the past 2 years of active listings (light green column) pending home sales (red line) and sold homes (teal column).  According to Manhattan Beach real estate agent Keith Kyle, “the rising number of homes for sale should be good news for buyers but there is still incredible demand which will continue to translate into higher home prices”.  The cities included in the chart below are Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, El Segundo and the communities of Palos Verdes

The number of pending home sales in July 2013 was the highest since March of 2012 with 400 pending sales, and the number of sold homes in July was 411, which was the highest month in over 5 years.  To view the home sales in the individual cities in the South Bay click here.
