HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

ellen Weekly Blog

Canning Properties Group wishes all a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Along with Independence Day just around the corner, so is the start of the 3rd quarter – our market’s busiest season. For the first time in months, Carmel and Pebble’s markets tied in activity with 4 closed escrows and 6 new sales apiece. Also worth noting with the heat wave hitting the Southwest, we’re seeing a rise in activity down the coast. As always, a few highlights from the week below:

Pebble’s market gained momentum from the previous week with an increase in both closed escrows (+1) and new sales (+2). The top closed escrow was an off-market deal in the heart of the MPCC area on Cormorant – a newly designed Mediterranean style home, just across from the Shore Course’s 1st and 2nd holes that closed at $4.6M. The other closed escrows included a major fixer with good ‘bones’ on Sawmill Gulch overlooking a greenbelt that closed at $1.229M (4% off of List Price); a cosmetically updated traditional style home in the Upper Forest that sold for $1.2M (1% over List Price) and a fixer on a major artery (Lopez Rd) that closed at $1.19M (12% off of List Price). The top new sale comes from the Central Pebble area – a classic 1930’s MJ Murphy Spanish Colonial with filtered ocean views and an ask of $4.6M. The other new sales include a rustic ranch style house on Del Ciervo, with views of Stillwater Cove and an ask of $3.495M; a recently remodeled Mediterranean style home with ocean views on the inner side of Coral Dr that’s listed at $3.05M; a partially updated ranch style home on the Shore Course’s 18th green that’s offered at $1.595M; a ranch style fixer in the quiet Valdez Rd with an ask of $1.295M and a dated 50’s ranch style home in the Country Club East area, that’s listed at $1.1M.

The prime parts of Carmel rebounded with vigor, posting more than double the amount of activity from the previous week. The top closed escrow came from the Eastern Carmel Point area – a tastefully designed cottage on an oversized lot (6,000 sqft) that sold for $2.59M (8% off of List Price). The other closed escrows included a teardown on San Antonio – also in Carmel Point – that sold for $2.25M (6% off of List Price) after previously trading at $2.375M; a tastefully renovated 60’s cottage on Carmelo in the Golden Rectangle that closed at $2.15M (9% off of List Price) and a teardown in NE Carmel that sold for $800K – essentially dirt value. The top new sale comes from the NW area – a renovated (’09) and well-maintained cottage with an ask of $2.095M. The other new sales include a 50’s ranch style home on a triple lot in Hatton Fields, offered at $1.65M; a 70’s traditional style home tucked behind the Forest Theatre with an ask of $1.525M; another traditional style fixer in the NW area, offered at $1.389M; a 40’s ranch-style home with a facelift in the SE area, listed at $1.289M and small (903 sqft) 2 bed/1 bath cottage in the outskirts of NE Carmel, listed at $975K.

The Highlands market remained active this week with 1 closed escrow and 1 new sale – both coming from the East of Highway 1. The closed escrow came from just above the Highlands Inn on Boyd Way – a remodeled 80’s craftsman with ocean views overlooking Wildcat Cove that closed at $2.96M. The new sale is a 80’s contemporary designed by Mackenzie Patterson on Peter Pan Rd with north-facing ocean views and a list price of $2.85M.
