ellen Weekly Blog

September 22nd marks the start of Autumn, and with that, we typically see our sunniest months.  Locals embrace this time of year as we wind down from our primary selling and tourism seasons.  With only one week left in Q3, it will be interesting to see if our market rebounds as projected- look for this quarter’s report in the upcoming weeks.  This week is also highlighted by the 10th Annual Authors and Ideas Festival, held at Stevenson Upper School.  A few highlights from the week below: 

Despite zero closed escrows this week, Pebble still matched its weekly averages with 5 new sales.  The top new sale is a 1930’s Mediterranean-style home on the East side of 17 Mile Dr, just across from the 15th hole of Pebble Beach- listed at $4.35M and need of a significant remodel.  The other new sales include a classic 30’s Ranch-style home in Central Pebble with an ask of $2.99M; a single-level fixer on 18th fairway of MPCC’s Shore Course with an ask of $2.35M; a Ranch-style fixer in the inner part of the MPCC area listed at $1.3M and a condo in Upper Forest with an ask of $535K.

Carmel had a respectable week with 4 closed escrows and 4 new sales- most of which occurred in the Northern parts of Carmel.  The top closed escrow was a remodeled Ranch-style home on Santa Lucia (an artery and Southern border of the Golden Rectangle) that sold for $1.695M (3% off of List Price).  The other closed escrows included a major fixer on a double lot in NW Carmel that closed at the full price of $1.495; a teardown on Junipero (artery that borders NW and NE Carmel) that closed at $1.165M (14% off of List Price), and another teardown on a double lot in the outskirts of NW Carmel that closed at $1.1M (8% off of List Price)- essentially dirt value.  The top new sale is a cottage-style teardown on an undersized lot in the Golden Rectangle listed at $1.295M.  The other new sales include a recently remodeled Ranch-style home in the heart of Hatton Fields with an ask of $1.195M; a charming small cottage (887 sq.ft. home) in NE Carmel that’s listed at $1.149M and a teardown, also in NE Carmel, with an ask of $975K.  This week exemplifies the trending uptick in activity for the areas North of Ocean Ave as inventory shortages linger in the Golden Rectangle and Carmel Point.
