Pebble Beach saw a surge in sales last week and had two significant closed sales. The 6 new sales included 4 between $1.1M-1.4M one at $1.975M and a front line MPCC property at $3.49M. Note that none of the sales were below $1M – with supply virtually gone, $1M has become the new floor. We closed the sale of that spectacular home on Sonado at $5.5M and another strong ocean view property on Corte Lane closed at $4.86M; demand remains healthy up to that $5.0+/- range but spongy north of there – we’re keeping an eye on the building inventory between $5-$10M.
The prime parts of Carmel had one closed sale, an off-market property we had at $6.3M (a classically renovated Mediterranean at the corner of Scenic and Ocean) and one new sale, a 1900 sq ft cottage on a 4000 ft lot in the Golden Rectangle on Casanova. Not a great week but not all bad.
We’ll be working on our comprehensive quarterly market update next week with detailed observations of trends in sales and inventory patterns.
