We love where we live and are grateful for opportunities to enjoy our surroundings on the Central Coast. Originally coined in the early 2000’s, the term “staycation” implies the best type of vacation – one that does not involve the stress of travel, packing, or a long flight/drive. Staycations don’t necessarily mean hanging out around the house; local dining, leisure, and entertainment can serve economic benefits to our community. What are your weekend plans? We hope you enjoy a couple of days of reprieve, wherever you may be. We will be staying in town! Below please find a recap of this week’s activity in our local real estate market.

Pebble’s week was on the quiet side with no closings and 2 new sales: a 15-year-old Custom Spanish style home in Central Pebble went into contract with an ask price of $3.475M after roughly 1 month on the market as did an MPCC golf front home located on the 2nd Fairway of the Shore Course (list price: $1.595M, DOM = 156).
