Well, Fourth of July came and went without a hitch. Since we have in recent years been without the annual fireworks display, many locals travel out of town to the Bay Area and beyond for their pyrotechnic fix. Others still sneak down to Carmel Beach and Still Water Cove in Pebble Beach in search of an opportunity to set off a few bottle rockets or Roman Candles. I still recall heading down to Carmel Beach with my Dad in about 93′ or 94′ with some school friends to rejoice in our own little 4th of July “celebration”. My Dad made us stay in the car while he stuck about a half dozen Roman Candles in the sand, lit them all at the same time and then jumped in the car as if he’d just robbed a bank. Good/wholesome memories! I digress…. Even still with the partial exodus of the local population, Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula remain a growing destination on this most righteous of American Holidays.
For June: Another month of steady demand on the books; another month of somewhat lower inventory. For our buyer clients, this can be a bit frustrating. Still, those perfect properties can present themselves when you least expect, and bring on a flurry of activity and even multiple offers.
