Love Wine?

Updated: Mar 7, 2019

With the 41st Annual Monterey Wine Festival pouring through town this weekend, there should be plenty to ‘wine’ about as festival-goers bask in all things grape. The local market kept a steady pace for the third week in a row, bolstered by an uptick in new sales in the prime parts of Carmel and Pebble. As always, a few highlights from the week worth noting below:

Although quiet on the closed escrows (1) front, activity in Pebble rose from last week propelled by 7 new sales. The lone closed escrow came from the Central Pebble area – a Colonial-ranch style home on the ideally located Riata Rd that closed at $2.65M (5% off of List Price). The top new sale is a traditional-turned-contemporary style home (remodeled in ’00) on MPCC’s frontlines with expansive ocean views and an ask of $6.9M. The other new sales include Spanish Bay’s unit #18, which went back into escrow this week, listed at $4.25M; a Mediterranean-style home with peaks of the ocean on the coveted Sand Dunes Rd in the MPCC area, offered at $3.25M; a traditional-style fixer in the heart of the MPCC area with good potential and an ask of $1.575M (only 2 days on market); a cosmetically remodeled ranch-style home in the Country Club East area with an ask of $1.295M; a 60’s ranch fixer (completely original) with greenbelt views and a list price of $1.275M and a midcentury-modern home in the Upper Forest that’s listed at $1.195M.

Carmel’s market rose again this week with another respectable performance – 5 closed escrows and 6 new sales. The top closed escrow came from the heart of the Golden Rectangle on Casanova Ave – a single-level cottage (built in ’07) just South of Ocean Ave that closed 1% over the list price of $2.288M. The other closed escrows included an 80’s ranch style home in SE Carmel that sold for $1.35M (3% off of List Price); a small (1,300 sqft) 50’s ranch style home on 2nd Ave in NE Carmel that closed at $1.195M (2% off of List Price); another small house (1,295 sqft) in SE Carmel that closed at $1.195M and a 20’s Comstock build in NW Carmel that sold for $1M (9% off of List Price). The top new sale is a fully renovated post adobe style home in lower Hatton Fields that’s offered at $1.95M (11 days on market). The other new sales include a charming little cottage on the outskirts of NE Carmel with an ask of $1.395M; a ranch-style home with views of Fish Ranch in lower Hatton Fields that’s listed at $1.32M; another ranch style fixer in Hatton Fields on Oak Place with an ask of $1.295M; a modestly updated 50’s cottage in NE Carmel with an ask of $1.276M; another 50’s cottage on Ocean Ave, listed at $1.249M and a teardown in lower Hatton Fields with a list price of $925K.
