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.

Laguna Beach has a wide variety of homes from oceanfront mansions to modern ocean view homes.  While the large majority of homes are located near the beach there are also some homes located in a canyon setting outside of town.  The Canyon Acres community is one such neighborhood that embodies the life of country living while still being located within an easy 10 to 15 minutes to the beach depending on traffic.  Homes were first built here starting in 1926 when a small 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage was built here.  Soon after that in the following 10 years several more 2 bedroom beach cottages were built that often featured around 1,000 square feet of living space.  Over the years, especially in the 1950's and 60's is when you started to see the development of

Laguna Beach is widely known for having very expensive land that causes homes to be located close to each other and built on small residential lots.  Many of these homes were built during the turn of the century as small vacation cottages from those who lived in the Los Angeles area.  It's not uncommon to find a 400 square foot home in the South Laguna area and commonly referred to as a "Laguna Beach Charmer" that typically features a small living room, kitchen, bathroom and a small bedroom.  Even with the small square footages these homes can be very expensive with the average medium price for a single family home starting at $600,000.

Everyone from real estate agents to home buyers are talking about the low inventory of housing in Southern California and how frustrating it is to find a suitable property at a reasonable price in today's real estate market.  A lot of times these hidden gems may be out there but not visible on the open real estate market and hidden from being seen anywhere on the Internet.  Sometimes the best deals are those that are on "hold" status for one reason or another.

If you are in the market to buy a home but looking to leverage your cash you may want to consider seller's who are open to doing a seller carry back.   What exactly is a seller carry back?  Instead of going through a traditional mortgage to buy a home the seller of the bank becomes the bank, in essence, and provides the buyer with an interest rate and terms for the amount that is to be borrowed.  Typically, a certain amount of down payment will be required in order for the seller carry back to work, in most cases this can be anywhere from 10 to 20% of the purchase price.  Most of it depends on the sellers motivation and the amount of equity the seller has in the property.  If the property is owned free and clear then you will have more negotiating room
