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.  

Most of the homes in Laguna Beach will come on the market between January

Laguna Beach is a great place to find smaller one bedroom apartments that are available for a Long Term lease.  Long Term leases usually start at 12 month period as the landlord wants to make sure that the tenant is a good match for them and likewise the landlord is a good fit for the tenant.  Normally after this period of time a long term lease can be negotiated.  We often get requests for tenants looking for a 2 or 3 year lease period but in Southern California most landlords will not initially sign such a long contract with a tenant whom they have had no dealings with in the past.  This is pretty much how it's done in California so we recommend starting out with a one year lease and making a decision after that time whether to renew the lease or not.

When Real Estate agents take a listing it is usually for a 6 or 12 month period.  Of course, this can be any length of time that the owner wants as we have seen it as short as one month when the owner really wants to get it sold right away.  After this set amount of time when the property does not sell it goes off the market and is considered an "expired listing."  Be prepared when this happens as dozens of real estate agents who's sole job is to call on expired listings will start calling you non-stop the morning after the home expires.  

These agents make a living trying to convince owners why their home didn't sell and to use them the next time around.  What most seller's don't realize is that these types of agents have very good phone skills but

Buying a lot and building your own custom home is a dream for many who want to put their own stamp on where they live.  With the high real estate prices in Laguna Beach it sometimes does make financial sense to buy a lot and build your dream home.  Like many coastal cities in Southern California the process of designing and preparing to build the home can take the most time and energy.  This is especially true for the city of Laguna Beach which has some of the toughest planning rules and regulations that must be followed before getting the final approval.  There are many rules that are unique to Laguna Beach which makes it tough for outsiders to quickly build a home.  First, there is view protection which allows surrounding neighbors to petition if they

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.

From a re-sale prospective these homes will always hold it's value due to the close proximity to the beach and the downtown area.  If you have ever been to the downtown area you know that it's always very busy with many tourists visiting the beach, downtown shopping and
