We are seem to get a lot of calls from clients looking for distressed properties, especially bank owned and short sale transactions.  Another type of a distressed sale to keep in mind when looking for a home are homes listed as a Bankruptcy Court Sale.  A perfect examples of this is current listing in Laguna Beach that may be a good deal for the right buyer.  The home is currently in the middle of a renovation as the picture below displays and also features wonderful ocean views as well.  It's located in the Alta Vista neighborhood in Laguna Beach which is a short driving distance down to the beach from many of the homes here.

This type of sale often requires the approval from the Bankruptcy Trustee as well as Court confirmation and overbid procedures.

The luxury real estate market in Laguna Beach, California saw some monumental sales with 2 of the top 3 sales selling for more than the highest sale last year in 2021.  One of the reasons for these sales as the big shift that we have been seeing in the past couple of years with low inventory and owners of properties looking to shift their money into different properties.  This changes are typically homes located near the water in prime locations throughout Laguna Beach including the luxury Emerald Bay gated community as well as the Montage Ocean Estates and the Three Arch Bay ocean front community.  The highest sale last year was just over $24 million with the following two properties topping that number.

The Laguna Beach Real Estate market is starting to see changes in the way homes are sold with rising interest rates causing things to slow down, especially for those who need the assistance of getting a loan.  It was only a short year ago when homes were flying off the shelf and multiple bids on properties were a common place.  This was due to the low inventory of homes available in Laguna Beach along with record low interest rates.  All of this has quickly changed and the sellers market has slowly turned into a buyers market.  Buyers now have more time to compare properties when the first come on the market without being pressured by other home buyers looking to make a bid on the same property.  The inventory of homes is still relatively low which is

One of the amenities that we are starting to see in many of the new construction luxury estate properties coming on the market for sale is having a private theater.  It seems like many of the upscale builders like to include a wine cellar, fitness room and a theater as some of the most requested bonus amenities in higher end homes.  From what I have seen these Theater rooms tend to be pretty grand with a large viewing screen, soft leather chairs and room for at least 10 people or more.  We did a quick search of properties that are currently for sale and found 8 homes that have a private Theater ranging from $4.5 to over $31 million dollars.  Several of these properties are located in the community of Three Arch Bay in Laguna Beach.  Three Arch Bay is a 24

We are starting to see a turn in the real estate market as mortgage interest rates continue to go higher which ultimately slow down the number of properties selling.  Another major factor is the number of buyers would need the assistance of getting a loan in order to buy a home are now not participating in the market but the cost of mortgage payments have almost doubled since last year.  This is around the time where we start to see creative financing being offered as the cost of getting a loan is to expensive for most buyers.  One option that is coming around again is seller financing which negates the need to get a traditional mortgage loan from the bank.  Let me explain how this typically works.

First, the owner of the property essentially becomes

The real estate market in Laguna Beach has started to make a shift as in most of the country with home staying on the market for a little longer than what we have seen in recent years.  One of the main reasons for this shift is a combination of factors which include increasing higher interest rates, decline in the stock market and an oversees International war.  It feels like we may be heading to more of a slow down here in Laguna Beach which will result in more inventory of homes on the market and the possibility of declining real estate asking prices.  For buyers who have to get a loan in order to buy a home here the cost and gone up significantly from just a year ago and it is expected to get more expensive as well.  Buyers will be looking for the best

One of the my favorite neighborhoods for finding really nice ocean views for single family residences in Laguna Beach is the Arch Beach Heights neighborhood.  A perfect example of the type of home you would find here would be the property that is located at 1046 Santa Ana Street which features a total of three bedrooms, two and a half baths with an approximate 1,584 square feet of living space.  The two level home was originally built in 1972 and comes with an attached two car garage which is now available for sale with a current list price of $2,098,000.   This is a really great price point in order to find a nice ocean view property in the upscale beach community of Laguna Beach.  There are a lot of things I love about this home which include the wood

The Three Arch Bay community is home to some of the most beautiful estate homes in Laguna Beach that can offer wonderful ocean views.  This is one of the oldest gated neighborhoods in this coastal beach town of Laguna Beach with some historic homes that date back nearly 100 years old.  Since there is a wide variety of homes found here it's not uncommon to find smaller beach cottages that are located within walking distance to the beach.  Some of the smallest cottages found here will feature only 1 bedroom with a select homes offering ocean views.  The assumption would be that since the home is much smaller than other homes in the neighborhood that there should be a deep discount on the purchase price.  Listing prices are often a factor of a variety of

What a year 2021 has been for real estate sales in the Laguna Beach area of Orange County, California.  There were several reasons for the strong year that included record low interest rates, a low inventory of available homes on the market at any given time and the huge buyer demand for homes that started just months after the Covid stay at home order in March 2020.  The Laguna Canyon area is still one of the best and most affordable places to find homes that are located within the city limits of Laguna Beach.  This zip code is very much in high demand due to it's excellent schools and prestige of living in one of the most beautiful beach towns in Southern California.  

The lowest priced sale this far in 2021 has been located in the Terraces community

One of the most unique and historic property landmarks in all of the Laguna Beach is arguably Pyne Castle.  The 17 bedroom estate was originally built in 1931 and is truly one of the most amazing properties located in Southern California.  It would be similar to a Hertz Castle but located much closer to the beach.  It last seen on the market back in 2012 which is pretty amazing to see such an amazing property being listed for sale.  The castle itself is huge with an estimated 18,300 square feet of living space located on multiple levels according to our multiple listing service.  It features a total of 9 attached garages and located on a multi acre lot which is amazing when you think how valuable land is here in California by the beach.
