How to Add a Second Floor to an Existing House / Adding a Second Story Most homeowners adding a second floor to their house try to keep the remodeling project quiet, "on the down-low" as much as possible from the neighbors. Not on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, though where they create "silhouettes" - they nail a flimsy-looking framework of 2-by-4s to their roof and stretch flags between the board... for months. There is an approval process through the city in cities like Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills Estates, Palos Verdes Estates and Rolling Hills. Rolling Hills doesn't allow additions onto single story homes; but they allow silhouettes to show where new single story homes will be. When silhouettes are used, it gives the city and neighbors a chance to give input before the approval i...

Dog Walk and Parks at Palos Verdes Bay Club and Views The PVBC allows one dog under 30 pounds (my sister's dog is questionable on the days he retains water) and two cats. Here I am walking the dog, showing you one of the dog parks where there are doggie baggies to encourage you to have the dogs go there instead of the lovely manicured lawns around the property. Look at those views available to you walking around this community! There is also a park a few hundred yards away at the Frank Vanderlip Park. There are sidewalks to walk on, and there are trails that go along the cliffs between the PVBC and Terranea. Love it! #palosverdespeninsularealtor #dogpark #palosverdesbayclub #pvbc #doglovers #dogfamily

Top 5 Neighborhood Amenities on PV Peninsula | Palos Verdes Map What you could consider as important in determining which neighborhood might be preferable for you. The first is distance, distance to Los Angeles, to LAX, the commute. There’s also distance to schools. When you think about if your student is going to one of the high schools, the one Palos Verdes (Peninsula) high school is on the top of the hill (as is private Chadwich HS), and the other is actually on over the hill another 10 minutes very near to the water. So you might decide based on distance, or you might go ahead and do some further research based on the amenities of the school. Other factors: infrastructure. A lot of these neighborhoods do not have sidewalks, although some do. Also, there's infrastructure for horses. ...

Housing Market Predictions 2022 | Housing Market 2021 Dusting off my Econ degree from college, let’s talk which way the market indicators are pointing. We’ll take on each of the indicators, compared to the 2000's recession, which we helped hundreds of people through, and the thing was the biggest indicator right before the huge price drop in home prices in the 2007-2012 recession. There are two main things: Supply and Demand of houses, and Affordability. Supply of houses in California is out of whack. It’s a Seller’s market – when a Seller puts a home on the market at a price that is in the range of value for that home, and 15 or 25 buyers make offers over the asking price and appraisals are coming in low. On a basic level, that means there are not enough houses available for the number...

,Palos Verdes homes owners have a great opportunity for their children to experience a virtual Faery Hunt while staying at home. Faery Hunt has been named the “Best Children’s Theater in Los Angeles” by Nickelodeon. They created Faeryland by using their magic with original stories, dancing and songs that will inspire the child in all of us. These performances are usually shown outdoors, but they also have library performances where children can come dressed as their favorite fairy, princess or super hero. This is also a great way to celebrate a birthday or special event for your child.As we are encouraged to socially distance this year, they have started new virtual shows for children to enjoy. On Saturday, October 3, and Sunday, October 4, 2020 they will be presenting “A Faery Hunt’s A...

Palos Verdes homes owners with school aged children are working on finalizing their plans to start the 2020-2021 school year on August 26, 2020. Many students have chosen for the Hybrid Learning Models, but quite a few have signed up for the Distance Learning Academy. The schools strict policies for opening, have put many families in a bind. Some have reached out for small pod learning groups so that the children can study with other children in a safe environment.  However, there are not enough groups to satisfy the demand. Having learning pods allows the parents time to work from home or return to their jobs.Elite Dance Studio is offering a school setting where children bring their laptops and participate in their zoom classes for school, then for physical education they can dance, or...
