The local market continues to churn at a surprisingly fast rate with no signs of immediate slowdown on the horizon.  Pebble Beach and the prime parts of Carmel share the crown this week with 8 sales a piece- a solid week at this stage of the selling season.  As always, a few highlights from the week below:

Pebble picked up in activity for the second week in a row with 6 closed escrows and 2 new sales.  The MPCC area continues to thrive, leading Pebble in sales volume.  The top closed escrow is a tastefully remodeled MPCC frontline Mediterranean-style home that closed off-market at the full price of $8M.  The other noteworthy closed escrows include a major fixer with expansive ocean views on the East side of Padre Lane that closed at $4.25M (3% off of List Price); a remodeled Contemporary with ocean views on lower Ronda Rd that closed at $3.8M (2% off of List Price) and a renovated Ranch-style home in the MPCC area that closed at $1.35M (4% over List Price).  The top new sale comes from the Central Pebble area- a Contemporary style home in a good location without ocean views and an ask of $3.625M.  The other new sale is a teardown in Upper Pebble with an ask of $699K. 

Another solid week for Carmel as it extends a March hot-streak for a third week in a row of 8+ sales.  A rarity, the top closed escrow came from outside of Carmel-By-The-Sea- a recently built Contemporary-style home with Valley views in Carmel Meadows that closed 1% over the list price of $2.72M.  The other closed escrows include a remodeled 1929 Carmel cottage in NW Carmel that closed at $2.277M (5% off of list price); a two story Ranch-style home in a good location in the Golden Rectangle that closed at $2.422M (Full Price); a fixer on Junipero that sold off-market at the full price of $1M and a tear down in NE Carmel that closed at $860K.  The top new sale is a charming remodeled cottage in SE Carmel with an ask of $1.997M.  The other new sales include a major fixer in the Golden Rectangle with an ask of $1.65M and a cottage in NE Carmel with an ask of $1.295M.

The Highlands had a much needed uptick in activity last week with 2 closed escrows and 1 new sale- the most activity in some time.  The top closed escrow is a tastefully remodeled Ranch-style home just off of Yankee Point’s front lines that closed at the full ask price of $2.389M.  The other closed escrow was an off-market deal East of Highway 1 that sold for $1.9M.  The lone new sale comes from the inner part of Yankee Point Dr- a major fixer without ocean views and an ask of $1.099M.  Good to see some activity down the coast.
