Worthy of note, all new sales this week were below the $3M mark as the bottom of the market continues to maintain liquidity. Below please find a recap of our subject regions.

Pebble Beach experienced a busy week and contributed 7 of the 11 total closed escrows. Closings included a new warm contemporary on the approach to the 7th green of Poppy Hills which was on the market for 3 months (sale price: $6M, 14% off list price), the 1920’s-built “2nd Canary Cottage” in the Upper Forest which was on the market for a year (sale price: $5.5M, 7% off list price), a fixer on the “Miracle Mile” of 17 Mile Drive also on the market for a little over a year (sale price: $3.65M, 8% off most recent list price or 13% off original list price), a Country English style home near MPCC with ocean/golf views which sold full price at $3.599M after a week on the market, a circa 1990’s Spanish Mission build in Country Club West (sale price: $2.525M, 3% off list price), a partially updated remodel opportunity in Country Club East (sale price: $1.24M, 4% off most recent list price or 17% off original list price, DOM = 225), and a Ranch style fixer, also in Country Club East, which sold after 2 days on the market for $1M even (an 18% discount off list price).  Pebble had 2 new sales this week: a remodeled Ranch style home in Central Pebble (list price: $2.749M, DOM = 55) and a dated 1970’s contemporary home with a good footprint in Country Club East which was on the market for 2 weeks (list price: $1.275M).
