ellen Weekly Blog

The market saw an uptick in activity from last week with 7 closed escrows and 10 new sales, nearly doubling the previous week’s totals.  Pebble had a robust week but still trailed the prime parts of Carmel which continue to be the epicenter of the local market.

Following a quiet week, Pebble saw a resurgence with 6 new sales and 2 closed escrows.  We are very fortunate to represent the seller of this week’s top sale- a recently remodeled Mediterranean overlooking the 15th fairway at Pebble with an ask of $8.95M.  The other new sales included an elegant Mediterranean on Bonifacio with an ask of $7.988M, a tear down on Lisbon that went back into escrow with an ask of $3.295M, a Spanish Colonial in the MPCC area with an ask of $3.295M and a couple of major fixers in Central Pebble with ask prices of $1.595M and $1.275M.  Pebble’s 2 closed escrows included a dated home on Portola Rd that closed at $3.85M (10% off of list price) and a tear down on an artery in Country Club West that closed at $1.315M (3% off of list price).

Carmel’s activity this week reflects the tightening of inventory (25 active listings) and developing trend of off-market sales.  Carmel saw 3 new sales this week- 2 previously in escrow on Santa Lucia and Monte Verde with asks of $3.195M and $2.69M respectively and a tear down on Monte Verde with an ask of $1.395M.  The top closed escrow this week was an off-market listing on Lincoln- a historical Colonial on a double lot that closed at $3.375M (6% off of original list price).  The other closed escrows included a beautifully designed Spec-house on 17th that closed at $2.4M (4% off of list price), 2 on the north side of Ocean that closed at $1.5M and $1.4M (6% and 7% off of list prices) and a tear down on Mission that closed at $1.15M (13% off of list price).

The Highlands market continues to tighten as well with only 17 active listings and 7 of those being ocean front properties.  We have seen a resurgence in interest for ocean front properties as of late and will continue to monitor the activity down the coast.

Quail continues to be one of the fastest moving areas in our market with another new sale on River Place with an ask of $1.395M after being on the market for 12 days.  The only inventory in the area is in Quail Meadows, which is considered by locals as Carmel’s best kept secret.  With Quail Lodge’s newly renovated course, it is no wonder that this has become a hot-spot in our community.
