If you have followed my blogs the last few days, you will have seen how desirable an area Carmel is on the Monterey Peninsula. The beauty of the area which includes Big Sur and Pebble Beach is absolute.
Is it any wonder that the homes in Carmel-by-the-Sea generally are very pricy but that does not stop second home buyers from investing in this community. You see, prices during the downturn also affected prices here. However, just as in the rest of the country, inventory is getting tight even with the priciest homes. In fact, it is about HALF of what it was in 2008 at the height of the foreclosure and short sale market. In fact, total sales and sales prices were up in 2012 over 2011 and now multiple offers on a property is the norm.
I love to be as close to the ocean as possible, so I went to investigate what is for sale on SCENIC DRIVE.
There were not so surprisingly very few for sale. But one that I have always liked was for sale. I remember it years ago before the renovations and always liked the location. (Courtesy Coldwell Banker/Del Monte).
