Like Santa Monica and Brentwood, Pacific Palisades also finds itself in a strong market with quite a few listings going out in auction like fashion:
1147 El Medio – 3 bed/3.50 bath, 3,144 sq. ft. Mid-Century on a 12,820 sq. ft. lot. The low list price of $2.365M created a ton of interest in the property with the listing agent receiving 16 offers. The captivating ocean and city light views combined with recent updates helped push the final sale price of this home to $3.080M, 700K over the asking price and at 979.63 per sq. ft. Rumor has it that counters were issued to the six highest original offers.
745 Swarthmore – 4 bed/2.75 Bath, 2,477 sq. ft. Traditional on a 9,000 sq. ft. lot. Located blocks from the village and recently renovated, this home with a desirable open floor plan received 4 offers and sold just above the $2.495M list price at $2.5M. The final price per square foot= $1009.29
1039 Las Pulgas Road – 3 bed/2.50 Bath, 2,021 sq. ft. Traditional on a 11,425 sq. ft. lot. This Marquez area home provides a great example of the current marketplace and what has been happening over the past 5 years. In 2007, this home was completely remodeled with a gourmet kitchen and providing great indoor/outdoor flow and sold for $2.150M in multiple offers. The house resold 3 years later off the market on 9/23/2010 for $1.759M, representing just over an 18% drop in value. On March 21st of this year, the home was listed at $1.759M and immediately received over 6 offers and sold for $1.825M, about a 4% price increase and it would probably have been 6% if it the market in the past few weeks.
