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

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

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

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

Laguna Beach is one of the few locations in Orange County, California where you can find homes that are located on the sand.  Neighboring beach towns like Newport Beach will also have beach front homes but often times have a boardwalk right in front of them.  Back in the 1960's it wasn't uncommon to build homes that were located literally on the sand in Laguna Beach.  Popular neighborhoods like Victoria Beach are a perfect example of where you can find these beachfront homes that have a lot to offer.  Of course, real estate in Laguna Beach is never cheap and you will pay a huge premium to have one located right on the beach.  A great example of this is a new listing that just came on the market in Victoria Beach and located at 2800 Ocean Front.  It

One of the hottest trends right now are 3D virtual home tours.  Since most showings are very limited agents in Laguna Beach are now making sure they every listing they have on the market comes with a virtual tour.  We checked all of the recent listings in Laguna Beach that have come on the market in the last week and every single one had a virtual tour.  The most popular virtual tour company by far is by Matterport which shows a 3D image of the property as if you were looking above the house and allows the consumer to walk through every single room as if they were at the house.  This makes a lot of sense since we have been getting a lot of calls lately of potential buyers asking for the virtual tour links of any given property.

Laguna Beach is well known for having some of the most expenpsive and exclusive gated communities in Laguna Beach.  Gated neighborhoods like Emerald Bay, Irvine Cove and Three Arch Bay can have homes listed well above $20 million dollars.  There are also smaller gated communities that still offer a secure gated entrance but with far less formality.  One of these smaller neighborhoods that even most locals may not know about is the Hidden Valley Canyon community.   If you are familiar with the city of Laguna Beach imagine driving up Temple Hills Drive and then coming back down Park Avenue.  About halfway done is a small gated street called Hidden Valley Canyon road.  Homes in this community city date back to the 1920's and have a lot of charm and character

We were just contacted by a client who is looking for off market condos in the Laguna Beach area.  Her main criteria is that she wanted a condo with spectacular views with a lot of building amenities.  Right now is considered our off season as many owners have decided to take their home off the market for the holidays.  Our typical selling season starts right after the first of the year and continues through the end of September.  The months of October, November and December are normally slower even through homes continue to sell just at a slower pace.  Even though a lot of owners take their home off the market for the holidays doesn't mean that they don't want to sell anymore.  A good real estate agent will have access to these properties and be able to
