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 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.
