One of the more popular architectural styles in Laguna Beach is the contemporary design. Contemporary homes blend well with the Laguna Beach lifestyle and exemplify the clean and minimal lifestyle. If you are looking for brand new construction contemporary homes then Laguna Beach is the perfect place to start. While searching our database for new listings to come on the market in Laguna Beach we found this new listing in the Temple Hills neighborhood in the Laguna Village that was built in 2011 and features wonderful ocean views with a sleek contemporary design. When planning your budget for a contemporary home in Laguna Beach plan to spend around $2 million dollars. Contemporary homes designed by famous architects like Mark Singer will also command a premium in price. We have seen several short sale and foreclosure homes that have actually sold just under the $1 million dollar mark so make sure you let your Laguna Beach realtor know exactly what you are looking for. Short Sales, if negotiated correctly, can provide the home buyer with a great buy in today's marketplace. Keep in mind that you can negotiate with the bank on the final sales price. Banks will often counter you in price if they think your offer is low but just remember that everything is negotiable when it comes to real estate. We expect 2012 to be a great year for buying homes in Laguna Beach and would love to assist with any real estate needs you may have.
