The Palos Verdes Peninsula has some of the world's best golf courses that we can enjoy year around. The Trump National Golf Course is considered the world's most expensive golf course ever constructed primarily due to the 18th hole sliding into the ocean several years ago and requiring millions of dollars in repairs before the course could open for play ( See the HISTORY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES on my website http://www.maureenmegowan.com for a detailed history of the construction of this golf course)  Trump National Golf Course Los Verdes Golf Course is one of the best public courses in Los Angeles County, with absolutely beautiful views of the ocean from many of the holes.

Those selling their homes in today's 'soft' market can maximize their net profits if they know how to read the market, price & stage their home correctly, manage the industry nuances and their own expectations, and if they have the right real estate professional on their side. "For sellers to walk away with the most money from their home sale, it is critical to price their property correctly from the start," stated Elaine Mallon, Broker Associate with Coldwell Banker.  "Buyers today are plentiful but cautious, interest rates remain low, and homes that are priced & marketed right, stand out and sell." A successful home sale just requires a little more patience -- and the right kind of expertise -- in today's market. "Buyers right now are looking for a deal and/or cost-saving incentives. ...

Welcome to Palos Verdes Real Estate onine. If you are currently in the market to buy a home in Palos Verdes you came to the right spot! Today the interest rate for a 30 year fixed is roughly 6.5%. With the rates being as volatile as they have been I highly recommend you speak to a lender a.s.a.p and get locked into a rate before they go up. With that said, there are currently 16 homes for sale in Palos Verdes with the exclusion of the Eastview area off of Western Ave. Although, I believe residents of the Eastview area now have a option to send their children to Palos Verdes Schools. Of course, this is to be confirmed with the schools. The lowest priced home for sale in Palos Verdes today (8/7/08) is located in the popular Silver Spur area close to shopping and schools. It is a four bedr...

Palos Verdes Here is some details info from Wiki- To describe the Palos Verdes Peninsula in more detail, great for those school reports.  The short version is that the schools are rated #1 in the State of California, The community and the people are wonderful, professionals interested mainly in their children's education and the spectacular ocean views can be seen daily from your home, on the way to and from running errands, stay home mom's abound(but they usually have a consultation project or work p/t) and the pace is very busy for the children with music, swimming clubs, tennis clubs,horseback riding, Ayso Soccer, Football and Little League. Tennis Clubs and Golf Courses galore for the Adults and tons of classes and fine dining in between. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
