Palos Verdes real estate chart for 2008 - 2011 showing average sales price for Palos Verdes homes in 90274 and 90275

What has been the trend for Palos Verdes real estate?  There have been several recent articles in the Los Angeles Times regarding real estate in California and specifically the Los Angeles area.

The Case-Shiller index of May home prices (compared to April) was reported in 20 metropolitan cities; Los Angeles was up .5% (click here to read article).  Today’s Los Angeles Times ran an article, “Tax Rolls Up for 1st Time In 3 Years – The uptick in values could signal that the real estate market is growing stronger.” I was curious what Palos Verdes homes sales had experienced so I researched  Palos Verdes real estate data for the last four years.

The average sales price for single family Palos Verdes houses in June 2007 was $1,582,000; June 2008 climbed to $1,700,000;  June 2009 was $1,249,000; June 2010 was $1,366,000 and June 2011 was $1,445,000.  As you can see from the lower red line on the top chart, sales have been rolling along in a mid range for the last three years.  It’s good to keep in mind that these number reflect the homes sold in that month only and a few really high priced or low priced home sales can really change the numbers.  I prefer to look at the overall graph trends.
