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.

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.

Laguna Beach has a wide range of properties that offer a variety of selling points which often include being located near the beach, offering an ocean view or offering a certain number of bedrooms and square feet.  The one thing you can't change about a home is it's location and this is especially true for where the lot sits within the community. Homes located on a corner lot are very much desirable since they often offer a premium lot with the lack of an adjoining home on one side of the property.  This often translates to a larger lot size and a huge selling point for buyers looking for a home.

Some of the neighborhoods currently offered for sale include the gated communities of Three Arch Bay, Lagunita and Emerald Bay which command a huge premium in
