The Real Estate market in Laguna Beach has been really crazy over the last several years which is leaving many to wonder how long this real estate boom will last. It's not uncommon in today's real estate market to have multiple offers on them which typically drives up the asking price.  The question then comes into many homeowners minds is do we really need to use a real estate agent?  We are starting to see more for sale by owners popping up in this hot market and if they can save a little bit of money by doing it themselves then more power to them.  If you are thinking about selling your home by yourself you need to make sure you aware of these simple mistakes than many for sale by owners make.  If you can avoid these then you will be in good shape.

One of the my favorite neighborhoods for finding really nice ocean views for single family residences in Laguna Beach is the Arch Beach Heights neighborhood.  A perfect example of the type of home you would find here would be the property that is located at 1046 Santa Ana Street which features a total of three bedrooms, two and a half baths with an approximate 1,584 square feet of living space.  The two level home was originally built in 1972 and comes with an attached two car garage which is now available for sale with a current list price of $2,098,000.   This is a really great price point in order to find a nice ocean view property in the upscale beach community of Laguna Beach.  There are a lot of things I love about this home which include the wood

The Blue Lagoon condo community is a great place to find short term vacation rental property in the heart of Laguna Beach near the 5 star Montage Resort.  This is one of the oldest and iconic gated condo tracts in Laguna Beach that was built in the mid 1960's that offers a good variety of ocean view and oceanfront condos that are located very close to the beach.  We receive a lot of calls from clients who are looking to spend one or two months in Laguna Beach and know that this area of Laguna Beach is a prime location that is within walking distance to local shopping, restaurants and stunning beaches.  

One of the things to keep in mind when looking for a rental in the Blue Lagoon is that the large majority of these rentals are furnished month-to-month

The Woods Cove area is a great place to look for a prime location near the beach.  For the most part, these homes are listed as short term rentals due to their close proximity to the beach.  The demand for vacation rental properties, especially during the high season summer months has always been high here in Laguna Beach and the opportunity for owners to make good money during these months has turned many rental properties into short term leases.  It's important to know that homes in this area are typically rented out by the month and go on a month-to-month basis and often come fully furnished.  Summer months like July & August are always the first months to go with other months like June and September becoming popular as well.  We always recommend

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

The 2020 year has almost come to an end and it's been a year like no other.  With all the ups and downs to everything that has happened this year the Laguna Beach Real Estate market continued to have a strong pool of buyers who were ready to make a purchase this year.  Although we have seen much higher sales in previous years there were still many homes in Laguna Beach that sold for over $10 million dollars which is amazing considering what 2020 has thrown at us.  There were actually two properties that sold for the exact same amount so we have included the top 4 sales this year.

2661 Victoria Drive was one of the third highest sales that occurred in Laguna Beach this year and was truly an amazing home.  The three level property sold for $12,500,0000

One thing Laguna Beach is well known for having is a great views.  I personally think there is no better beach town in Southern California that can offer the outstanding views that many homes throughout this famous beach town of Laguna Beach.  The views can really be awe inspiring that often times include ocean, Catalina Island and sunset views.  Many local real estate agents like to advertise these homes as offering a 180 degree view.  If you look at the topography of Laguna Beach you will soon quickly realize this is actually true since many of the properties are located on a hillside that offer wonderful panoramic views.  Neighborhoods like Temple Hills are great places to find many of these type homes that command a premium in price due to the large

Every year we get a lot of rental requests for those wanting to vacation in the Laguna Beach area during the summer months.  This year was especially busy due to COVID as many of our clients wanted to get out of the current home and stay in a much nicer place while still being in California.  One of the top communities that was most requested was the Three Arch Bay community.  Three Arch Bay is one of the top gated communities in Laguna Beach which is located on the south end of town.  It's one of the few neighborhoods in Laguna Beach that has two different sections to it with two separate guard gates.  Every time I have visited this community the security has been very strict and access is only allowed for owners and their guests.  Many people try to

One of the newest features added to our MLS is being able to view coming soon listings.  These properties are technically not active on the market and are in the pre-marketing stage of being put on the market.  The coming soon feature was added so agents can get there home available to other real estate agents and potential clients while they are getting their professional photos and other marketing materials together.  The advantage of doing it this way for agents is that the days on the market will not start counting until it's officially switches to active.  If you have been familiar with real estate for awhile these were commonly known as pocket listings where real estate agents would only share these potential properties to clients they are currently

The Vacation rental season in Laguna Beach has been really crazy this year in part due to COVID19 which has caused many people to consider staying in a luxury residence this summer.  It seems like long gone are the days of jumping on a plane and traveling to a far destination to your favorite vacation spot instead the hottest trend is to find travel destinations that are within a days driving distance.  That's what we have seen this summer are a lot of California residents looking to vacation along the beach in many of the beach towns in Southern California.  Of course, Laguna Beach is a top destination for many as it's considered one of the most beautiful beach towns along the coast.  Due to the high demand this year we have seen a huge surge of clients
