Laguna Beach is home to a wide variety of condos that range from ocean front to panoramic ocean views. For the most part, most of these condos are not on lease land which means the land from which the condos are located under are shared in ownership. There are a few exceptions, like the condos located at the Aliso Laguna complex located on Ocean Vista Drive in Laguna Beach. The complex was built in the mid 1960’s with the land being leased to all the current owners of the building. A lease land situation can be risky since when the lease is due the land can be sold. There are two ways in which the land fee is paid.

Laguna Beach is mainly filled with residential single family homes and condos but has a fair number of income properties that are mainly located in the downtown Laguna Village area.   Many of the buildings will offer ocean view units that can range anywhere from a small duplex property to a 13 unit condo complex.  There are several things to keep in mind when looking at income properties which are unique to Laguna Beach.

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.
