After a flurry of new sales last week, Carmel behaved a bit more subdued this week, allowing Pebble to re-claim the lead.  We are midway through the 4th quarter and are enjoying the change of seasons along with some much desired rain.  A couple of highlights from this week to note:

Pebble chugged along with 2 closed escrows and 5 new sales, a slight uptick in new activity from last week.  The top closed escrow was a shingled ranch style fixer on an artery in the MPCC area that closed at $1.256M (3% off of list price).  The other closed escrow was a condo in the Upper Forest that closed at the full price of $400K.  The top new sale, another frontline listing below Spyglass Hill, went into escrow this week after a price reduction to $6.7M.  The other new sales included a tastefully renovated ranch style home in the MPCC area with an ask of $2.45M, another recently renovated home in the Country Club area with an ask of $1.412M and 2 tear downs with asks of $949K and $845K.  A Pebble Beach golf front listing hit the market this week, just off of the 14th green with an ask of $12.5M.  Click the link for a short-cut to the listing details.

A very quiet week by recent standards for the prime parts of Carmel with only 1 closed escrow and 2 new sales.  The sole closed escrow came from North of Ocean, just outside of Pebble’s gate on San Antonio, which closed at $2.143M (3% off of list price).  The top new sale, well north of Ocean, is a cottage style home with distant ocean views and an ask of $1.099M.  The other new sale came from Hatton Fields, a ranch style fixer with an ask of $1.225M.  A new listing in Carmel Point hit the market this week, a 3 bed/4.5 bath on Bay View with an ask of $4.8M.  Click this link for some photos or to set up a time to preview this home.

One new sale to report in the Highlands- a newer constructed home with panoramic views went into escrow this week with an ask of $2M.

No news to report in Quail this week.
