Schools. I see a clear preference with respect to school districts expressed by buyers. Pebble Beach is in three school districts - PG, Carmel and Monterey. Buyers with young families seem to generally prefer Carmel over PG and PG over Monterey. ... more

Pebble Beach has a wide range of home prices, from condos available for $475,000 to homes listed for more than $20,000,000. The mix of high-priced vs lower-priced homes can really impact the statistics, particularly when there are relatively few sales. YTD unit sales for 2015 stands at 58. The high end of the market here has been a bit slower than last year, so the stats are likely to show lower average prices. Owners of multimillion dollar homes are generally not under pressure to sell and these homes are generally not their primary residence. Prices here have been stable to moderately higher when you look at activity by market niche. Hope that helps. ... more

Sales have been up in Pebble Beach, and inventory is a bit low. There has been good activity in sales, especially in the high end homes. Typically, the last quarter slows down in sales for our area, and we only had 3 homes that went into contract during October. 17 homes closed escrow during October. ... more

When you look at the price over time, MPCC west is higher.
Generally speaking, properties in MPCC west are more desirable as they're closer to the water. The views of the water over the golf course mean that the ocean views are unblocked. MPCC east doesn't offer the same opportunities for white water and golf.
People can walk along golf courses in many locations. But there are few locations where you can also walk out your door and be at the Pacific Ocean in a minute. So, I think the value and demand for MPCC West will continue.
You also ask if there's a price difference between a house that is on the same side as the golf course vs one that's on the opposite side of the street. Generally, perceived open space (even onto a private golf course) is more desirable than a backyard view of other homes.
I'm happy to provide you with specifics about properties around MPCC if you're interested.

Thank you for your question. Purchases that do not have a short sale approved list price will need to go through the short sale approval process, no matter if the offer is a full price offer or otherwise. The short sale process, in most cases, will take anywhere from 1 - 6 months. If you have a broker/realtor that is short sale specialist, or someone that has been thru short sales many times, that agent will know how to communicate with the banks to move the process forward much quicker. Unless there is a lot of attention on the property by other Buyers, I would start out by negotiating with the bank with your preferred broker/realtor.I have been a top producing broker on the Monterey Peninsula for many years and have helped out many sellers through the distressed sale process. My office is located at The Shops at Pebble Beach and I know the invetory of Pebble Beach well. If you would like to contact me for any advice on purchasing a distressed properties I would be glad to share my knowledge. ... more
