The Malibu Colony Is Hot Right Now

Demand for beach houses in the Malibu Colony ebbs and flows just like the tides. There are periods when there seems to be little demand because other beaches are “hot” or  the nightly news shows clips of storm waves battering the houses during an El Nino. Following any period of bad news,  the lower priced beach homes get scooped up, torn...

Malibu Summer Rentals – What You Need To Know

Now that April has arrived, my phone is starting to ring with inquiries about Malibu summer rentals. I just completed my first lease of the year on Carbon Beach at $55k per month with a nice couple from New Jersey who needed to be near LA while their son completes his internship over the hill. There were a few things that were new to them as we went... 

I’m Officially Declaring That We’ve Seen Th...

Really incredible breaking news! The Malibu Real Estate market is busting loose! Man! Where do I begin? Picture the Colossas at Six Flags. You know the first big drop? We’ve been there. The big dip in the middle. We’ve been there, too. The part where you start heading back up really fast? That’s where we’re at, baby. Heading... 

Malibu Beach House Designed By Pierre Koenig Now For Sa...

A landmark Malibu beach house, designed by Pierre Koenig, hit the Malibu real estate market last night for $18.5m. The home sits right above the water on a rocky promontory at the end of Broad Beach and features giant walls of glass that take in some of the best views in all of Malibu.

Warning! The home you are about to view is known to cause an increase in blood pressure, a rise in heart rate, and an uncontrollable desire to live on Malibu Road.

Malibu Real Estate Round Up

There’s a lot going on out here in the Malibu so here’s a quick run down on the real estate scene. - It seems as though a bunch of mobile homes hit the market in the last 2 weeks. Prices are dropping too with the added inventory and competition. I think there will be a downward trend in prices on the less desirable units (one without ocean... 

Two Malibu “Super Homes” For Sale Compete F...

I see this all the time….A major Malibu estate goes on the market at a high price and the neighbor a few doors down says “Hey! If he can get that, I should get this!” and will list their home for sale. It’s not a bad idea either if one house looks like a great deal and the other is priced a lot higher. That’s my guess with... 

The Never Ending Price Chop

20, 19, 18, 17 …..No, it’s not a count down to a rocket launch at Cape Canaveral. It’s the millions of dollars being chopped off the asking price of a home in Malibu. The beach front estate, located on the Encinal bluffs, started out at $20m and is now bank-owned and listed at $8.9m! I don’t think the countdown can go too much... 

Hot Deals On Malibu Road

There  are two beach homes for sale on Malibu Road that I’m saying are heading in to the “deal” category. I can’t give away to much info but I will say the both places are vacant and are owned by family members who want to see them sold. In other words, there’s not a whole lot of emotional attachment to the homes which... 

What up with That?

There’s a skit on SNL/Hulu that we watch called “What Up With Dat”. It’s silly and doesn’t make a ton of sense but the catch phrase get’s so stuck in your head you to will be saying it to your spouse like I do. My wife will say, “The dog just jumped on the bed with dirty feet!” and I’ll reply,...
