One of the hottest trends right now are 3D virtual home tours.  Since most showings are very limited agents in Laguna Beach are now making sure they every listing they have on the market comes with a virtual tour.  We checked all of the recent listings in Laguna Beach that have come on the market in the last week and every single one had a virtual tour.  The most popular virtual tour company by far is by Matterport which shows a 3D image of the property as if you were looking above the house and allows the consumer to walk through every single room as if they were at the house.  This makes a lot of sense since we have been getting a lot of calls lately of potential buyers asking for the virtual tour links of any given property.

Laguna Beach is well known for having some of the most expenpsive and exclusive gated communities in Laguna Beach.  Gated neighborhoods like Emerald Bay, Irvine Cove and Three Arch Bay can have homes listed well above $20 million dollars.  There are also smaller gated communities that still offer a secure gated entrance but with far less formality.  One of these smaller neighborhoods that even most locals may not know about is the Hidden Valley Canyon community.   If you are familiar with the city of Laguna Beach imagine driving up Temple Hills Drive and then coming back down Park Avenue.  About halfway done is a small gated street called Hidden Valley Canyon road.  Homes in this community city date back to the 1920's and have a lot of charm and character

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

Laguna Beach offers a wide range of homes with various amenities that capture views of the Pacific Ocean.  One of the more requested amenities would be homes that offer a roof top deck.  For the most part we don't see a lot of homes that offer a roof top deck for a variety of reasons.  The first reason would be that views in Laguna Beach are protected so by adding an additional level on top of the house to build a roof top deck may block a neighbors view.  Laguna Beach also has height restrictions when building a home so adding a roof top deck will count towards the total height allowance.  

Some of the best places to look for homes with rooftop decks are more established neighborhoods that have space between the neighboring homes in order to

There has never been a better time to buy an ocean front condo in the famous Table Rock complex.  Inventory always tends to be very low in this complex due to the small number of oceanfront condos that are in existence here.  Right now, buyers have 4 condo listings to choose from in Table Rock that offer spectacular ocean views in arguably one of the best locations in Laguna Beach.  Real Estate prices start at $2,650,000 for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with 1,136 square feet and direct ocean front views to as high as $4,999,000 for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with 1,371 square feet.  What separates these price points is the location within the complex, size of the unit and condition as far as upgrades to the condos, etc.  3 of the 4 new listings have been on

Buying a home in Laguna Beach can be tricky when deciding on which neighborhood to live and the best time to buy.  There are pros and cons to buying at different times of the year in Laguna Beach and often depends on how the current real estate market is doing.  It's first important to establish if the market is a buyers or a seller's market.  A buyers market means that homes will sit on the market longer than usual.  Buyers don't have to rush into buying a home and can often negotiate with the seller off the listing price.  In a seller's market properties are selling very fast and the owners are in control on who they sell it and the price they think the market will bear.

The Laguna Village area is one of the closest neighborhoods to the beach in the downtown area.  Many of the homes were first built here starting in the early 1900's and slowly built up through the mid 1950's through 1970's.  There has been a trend lately to tear down some of the original homes and build newer construction homes in place of them.  This is happening all throughout Laguna Beach and the Village area is starting to see several of these homes come on the market for sale.
