We are seem to get a lot of calls from clients looking for distressed properties, especially bank owned and short sale transactions.  Another type of a distressed sale to keep in mind when looking for a home are homes listed as a Bankruptcy Court Sale.  A perfect examples of this is current listing in Laguna Beach that may be a good deal for the right buyer.  The home is currently in the middle of a renovation as the picture below displays and also features wonderful ocean views as well.  It's located in the Alta Vista neighborhood in Laguna Beach which is a short driving distance down to the beach from many of the homes here.

This type of sale often requires the approval from the Bankruptcy Trustee as well as Court confirmation and overbid procedures.

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.

66 Emerald Bay gets the nod for the highest

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 real estate market in Laguna Beach has started to make a shift as in most of the country with home staying on the market for a little longer than what we have seen in recent years.  One of the main reasons for this shift is a combination of factors which include increasing higher interest rates, decline in the stock market and an oversees International war.  It feels like we may be heading to more of a slow down here in Laguna Beach which will result in more inventory of homes on the market and the possibility of declining real estate asking prices.  For buyers who have to get a loan in order to buy a home here the cost and gone up significantly from just a year ago and it is expected to get more expensive as well.  Buyers will be looking for the best

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

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

The Laguna Beach market has really changed in the last 12 months with it being one of the hottest real estate markets as seen in the last 10 years.  There is currently a huge shortage of real estate inventory and a strong buyer demand which typically results in higher real estate prices with multiple buyers bidding on the same property.  The condo market in Laguna Beach is no exception to this with currently only 13 condos listed for sale that range from $664,900 for a two bedroom condo in the Terraces community up to $7,499,000 for a three bedroom condo in the upscale Montage Beach Villas community.  If you are new to Laguna Beach there are a couple things to consider when buying a condo here.
