ellen Weekly Blog

For the first time in nearly two months, Pebble seized the weekly crown from Carmel with 2 closed escrows and 9 new sales.  Great to see activity pick back up in Pebble after posting two sluggish weeks.  There should be plenty of entertainment this weekend with the annual Quail Motorsports Gathering rolling through town.  As always, a few highlights from the week worth noting below:

The majority of activity this week occurred under the $3M threshold- representing all but one of the closed escrows and new sales.  The top closed escrow comes from the inner part of the MPCC area- a tastefully remodeled English-style home designed by John Mathems on Pioneer Road, that closed at $2.7M (10% off of List Price).  The other closed escrow, also in the MPCC area on the front lines of the Shore Course, is a Ranch-style fixer that closed 7% over the list price of $1.439M.  We’re honored to represent the top new sale for this week- a Traditional-style home with expansive ocean views in Pebble’s sunbelt with an ask of $4.095M.  The other noteworthy sales include a classic 1930’s Ranch-style home in Central Pebble reasonably listed at $2.99M, a Contemporary-style home with a peculiar floorplan also in Central Pebble with an ask of $2.95M, a recently remodeled Ranch-style home in the Country Club East area offered at $1.371M and a fixer on a main artery in the MPCC area listed at $1.275M.  The remaining new sales range from $975 down to $529K- all in the Upper forest area.  Worth noting that inventory levels have stabilized in the high 60’s, low 70’s for the first half of 2016.

In a rare week, Carmel took backstage to Pebble this week with 5 closed and 5 new sales- a solid week none-the-less.  The top closed escrow came from the heart of the Golden Rectangle- a custom built three-story villa designed by Al Saroyan that closed at $4.25M (4% off of List Price).  We’re very proud to have representing the sellers’ of a landmark MJ Murphy home on the Southern part of the Golden Rectangle that closed at $3.24M (4% off of List Price)- this property is truly a piece of Carmel’s romantic past.  The other closed escrows include a recently remodeled home with ocean views on Pradera Road that closed at $3M (14% off of List Price), a Ranch-style home in lower Hatton Fields that closed at 1.1M (11% off of List Price), and a teardown in NE Carmel that closed at the full price of $825K.  The top new sale comes from the lesser known Ridgewood Road- this is a ‘sleeper’ street in that most people are unaware.  It’s a custom built home on a half-acre and an ask of $3.99M.  The other new sales include a large two-story home in Upper Hatton Fields with an ask of $1.595M, a Mid-Century Modern home in SE Carmel with an ask of $1.495M, a partially remodeled home in Southern Carmel Point with an ask of $1.35M, and another recently remodeled home in Hatton Fields with valley views and an ask of $1.159M.

No news to report in the Highlands this week.

Quail Meadows remains white-hot with another closed escrow this week.  We’re very fortunate to have represented both sides of this beautiful East-coast style home on Quail Way, which closed at $3.45M (4% off of list price).  Jessica lead the way on this sale and did a fantastic job for both parties.  As mentioned last week, the Canning Properties Group proudly donates a percentage of the proceeds for any sale in the Quail area to the Quail Lodge Scholarship Fund.  Again, feel free to reach out to us if you have questions about the charity or would like to make a contribution yourself.
