Hi Will - this is an excellent time to consider putting your home on the market. We have tremendous momentum so far this year on the Westside and there's no better example of that than the SFR market in the Palisades. It's probably been a while since you've heard the term 'Seller's Market' but that's exactly what the market was in February. Just 5 months of inventory based on the market absorption rate and with the continuing momentum we're seeing, the situation could well become more pronounced.

That fact translates to opportunity for a seller, as these circumstances can and do have an upward influence on pricing. Speaking of which, even the Median Sold Price for February was up by 14% year-to-year. If you'd care to learn more stats on the PP SFR market, I invite you to visit the market sales data section at

Hi Amwagner,

How about baking some chocolate chip cookies? Talk about smelling yummy! Plus, you can hand them out to your guests... If that is too much, I have heard you can put a few drops of vanilla on a baking sheet and put that in the oven, which will also smell pretty good. You can always try scented candles also. Good luck with your open house!
