We recently had a client who was interested in purchasing a condo in the Laguna Lido complex in Laguna Beach.  The listing had mentioned that the condo was on a leasehold interest.  The listing broker remarks on the listing goes on to say that the "Sellers (Lessees) have the LEASE HOLD Interest until 2059". It goes on to say that the "Lessee pays for HOA, Annual Lease fee of $11,643,21. plus Taxes, Insurance and Utilities.

We were just contacted by a client who is looking for off market condos in the Laguna Beach area.  Her main criteria is that she wanted a condo with spectacular views with a lot of building amenities.  Right now is considered our off season as many owners have decided to take their home off the market for the holidays.  Our typical selling season starts right after the first of the year and continues through the end of September.  The months of October, November and December are normally slower even through homes continue to sell just at a slower pace.  Even though a lot of owners take their home off the market for the holidays doesn't mean that they don't want to sell anymore.  A good real estate agent will have access to these properties and be able to

The Laguna Lido has recently updated their pet policy when it comes to those who are planning to rent a condo in the complex.  This includes those looking to do a long term lease and those looking for vacation rentals as well.  According to several owners in the building the policy does not effect owners who live there as they are still allowed to have pets.  The rule takes aim at those looking to rent at the Laguna Lido as renters are not allowed to have pets.  We recently had some clients who were looking to rent the property for one month in the summer time and were told by multiple owners that the new policy does not allow for them to have pets, only for the owners.

Located on the oceanfront, the Laguna Lido is widely considered one of the top
