As the days grow shorter, the nights colder and the holidays nearer, some buzz persists in our quaint little town. This last weekend was the annual Big Sur Food & Wine festival, and we headed out to the Grand Tasting at Pfeiffer State Park with some good friends to celebrate life and the pursuit of happiness. Back in town, clear Winter skies proved good beach weather for us locals and our dogs. We took our St Bernard, Charlie, to Carmel beach, and he galloped directly into the crashing waves, to the delight of onlookers. Nothing beats throwing on a fleece and taking the dog to the beach on a brisk Winter day, latte or cappuccino in hand compliments of Carmel Valley Coffee Roasting Company.
While our real estate season isn’t at it’s peak, we’re maintaining some decent velocity going into the holidays. New inventory is falling a bit, as is normal this time of year, so it can still be an advantageous time to be a seller, with less competition. Last month we closed a nice, newer construction listing of ours in the downtown area from a $2.1M list. This evening we listed a $1,249,000 ocean view home in the Carmel Views area. You can see Point Lobos in the distance. Things are continuing to move, tourism remains strong as we exit Indian Summer, and I for one welcome the changing season. It has been a good year.
As always, please think of us if you or a friend needs representation. We subsist almost entirely upon referrals from you. Please scroll down for market activity by area.
