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

The Laguna Lido has recently updated their pet policy when it comes to those who are planning to rent a condo in the complex.  This includes those looking to do a long term lease and those looking for vacation rentals as well.  According to several owners in the building the policy does not effect owners who live there as they are still allowed to have pets.  The rule takes aim at those looking to rent at the Laguna Lido as renters are not allowed to have pets.  We recently had some clients who were looking to rent the property for one month in the summer time and were told by multiple owners that the new policy does not allow for them to have pets, only for the owners.

The Laguna Royale building is located at 31423 Coast Hwy in Laguna Beach and is one of the largest condo buildings to be found in this small beach town. The condos offer a wide range of ocean views depending on where the condo is located. The complex is located directly on the ocean front and offers a total of 78 units. The building is secure with a guard gated entrance, subterranean underground parking and an on site property manager.
