One of the most common requests we get from out of state visitors is a view of the ocean. Being connected to the ocean is something we take for granted when living here in Laguna Beach. For those not used to seeing the ocean on a daily basis the importance of owning an ocean view property is at the top of their list. If you are in the market to buy an ocean view condo and have a budget up to $1 Million dollars then you can either find an ocean view home or a nice condo. Ocean View homes under $1 million will be on the smaller side and will probably need a little bit of work. If you prefer a more turnkey living then buying a condo may make sense. You will find a lot of ocean view condos under the $1 million dollar mark with various bedrooms and square footage's. You may be interested in some new ocean view condos that just came on the market in the South Laguna area that feature great views of the ocean with a brand new interior finishes for $999,000. There are several ocean view condos in this building to choose from and the distance to the beach is very close.
