The AT&T bump has continued this week with 8 new sales and 1 closed sale, bringing the total new sales up to 19 for the past two weeks — a 36% jump over the same time last year. The closed sale was a great house on Ocean View that closed for $2.25M. Carmel and Pebble Beach had four new sales each this week. The new sales in Carmel included a recently remodeled cottage on Isabella listed for $2.195M, a fixer in the Golden Rectangle on Lincoln and 8th listed for $1.295M, and a small beach house on Casanova and 12th. Thanks to low inventory levels, the fourth new sale in Carmel came in with multiple offers: Scenic and Ocean went into escrow the day it hit the market last week with a back-up offer. This is something we’re seeing more and more of right now with fixers.
The four closings in Pebble included a great house on Ondulado with a list price of $6.695M, a French-style house on Viscaino that was originally listed at $3.9M but went into escrow listed at $2.05M, a newly remodeled house on Bird Rock by MPCC that was listed at $1.449M, and a rancher by the Shore Course that went into escrow the day it hit the market for $1.495M. The Ondulado and Padre Lane sale last week are the first deals over $4M that we’ve seen in Pebble since our deal closed back in August of 2012. While there are 27 houses currently listed above $4M in Pebble, which is on the high side, we didn’t see the typical surge in inventory this AT&T; with supply stabilizing and demand rising our sense is this positive trend line will continue this quarter and rise even further as we move into the peak summer season.
