Finding the Best Horse Property in Palos Verdes for Your Budget
If you're searching for horse property in Palos Verdes you need to know where to look, since most properties in Palos Verdes are not zoned for horses. My easy rule of thumb is if your price range is $2,000,000 and up Rolling Hills may be the best investment for the money. On the other hand, if your budget is somewhere between one and two million dollars, Rolling Hills Estates and some areas of Rancho Palos Verdes offer you the option of purchasing a home in a horse-friendly neighborhood. If you desire to purchase a horse property priced under $1,000,000 then be prepared to wait for that fixer, and if it's truly a good property for horses, be prepared for multiple offers as those properties only hit the market once in a blue moon. :)
A property approved for horses refers to the zoning and may be improved (with stable, barn, etc) or unimproved. The terrain may be flat or steep, the trail may be adjacent or you may need to walk your horse out. Needless to say, all horse properties are not created equal. I recently walked a property to see first-hand the horse facilities and the access to the nearest riding trail. I often say horse people care more about the condition and location of the stable than they do about their living quarters.
