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.

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

The typography of Laguna Beach is really interesting as it arguably offers more ocean view properties due to it's rolling hillsides that overlook the Pacific Ocean.  When it comes to properties located on the ocean front there are many properties that are located high on a cliff that overlook the ocean but very few homes that are actually located on the sandy beach.  Neighboring towns like Dana Point and Newport Beach do have many properties located on the sand but finding one in Laguna Beach can be really tough.  There are a couple exceptions to this and the homes that are located on the sand are truly spectacular.

The first place to look is the Thousands Steps Beach area in the South Laguna area of Laguna Beach.  The area gets its name since there

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 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

Laguna Beach saw some wonderful sales that took place in communities like Irvine Cove, Woods and the Laguna Village area.  The biggest problem this year was the lack of inventory which caused buyers to act quickly when new listings came on the market.  The higher end of real estate still takes a little bit longer to sell than homes in the one to two million range but still sold relatively quickly when compared with previous years.  The highest sale this year took place at 2620 Riviera Drive which was located in the gated community of Irvine Cove in North Laguna.  This is one of my favorite neighborhoods since it has one of the most beautiful private beaches in all of Laguna Beach.  2620 Riviera Drive sold for $24,250,000 on 5/18/21 after being on the

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.

What a difference a year makes when it comes to vacation rentals.  In 2020, we saw a huge demand for those looking for vacation rental properties in Laguna Beach that often found multiple clients bidding against each other and driving up the prices for specific vacation summer months.  At that time it seemed like everyone was tired of staying in their home and with travel limited through the United States many turned to vacation within their own state, often choosing a beach front home where they could stay in a luxury residence during the pandemic.  Fast forward to 2021 where a lot of Americans have been vaccinated and feel more comfortable traveling the demand to find local vacation rental properties has dropped.  It's really a night and day difference

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
