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

Laguna Beach offers a wide range of homes with various amenities that capture views of the Pacific Ocean.  One of the more requested amenities would be homes that offer a roof top deck.  For the most part we don't see a lot of homes that offer a roof top deck for a variety of reasons.  The first reason would be that views in Laguna Beach are protected so by adding an additional level on top of the house to build a roof top deck may block a neighbors view.  Laguna Beach also has height restrictions when building a home so adding a roof top deck will count towards the total height allowance.  

Some of the best places to look for homes with rooftop decks are more established neighborhoods that have space between the neighboring homes in order to

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.  

Most of the homes in Laguna Beach will come on the market between January

When Real Estate agents take a listing it is usually for a 6 or 12 month period.  Of course, this can be any length of time that the owner wants as we have seen it as short as one month when the owner really wants to get it sold right away.  After this set amount of time when the property does not sell it goes off the market and is considered an "expired listing."  Be prepared when this happens as dozens of real estate agents who's sole job is to call on expired listings will start calling you non-stop the morning after the home expires.  

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 Mystic Hills Laguna Beach community is a neighborhood filled with beautiful homes that often sell between $2 to $10 million dollars. For those looking to rent a home in the Mystic Hills neighborhood there are many stunning properties that are currently available for long term leases.  With many visitors coming to town each summer looking for vacation rental properties it's important to note that many of the rental property owners are wanting a long term 12 month lease.  With that being said there are a few homes that are available a month to month basis and have negotiable lease terms.  During the summer months rental prices due go up so the rental prices often listed online are normally winter rates so expect rates to go up during the months from

Ultra Contemporary is often a phrase used for modern homes that are done to the extreme. Laguna Beach is truly the meca for contemporary style homes that range anywhere from soft contemporary to an ultra design.  Due to the natural topography of the hillside in Laguna Beach a large majority of these stunning architectural homes will have views of the  Pacific Ocean.  The sandy beach and gentle waves are a perfect backdrop for these properties that are located in one of the most prime locations in all of Southern California.

The price of real estate doesn't come cheap for these types of homes as land is very expensive in Laguna Beach.  The cost of building the home also has to be a consideration as construction costs tend to be very high in this area.

The Mystic Hills area of Laguna Beach is one of my favorite areas with beautiful luxury homes that grace the hillside that sits directly above the downtown area.  Some of the first homes in this area were built in the mid 1920's and offered prime views of the valley and ocean.  In the 1960's we saw a big spike in the number of properties being built in this prime location and new construction continues to this day as Mystic Hills is considered one of the top areas to live.

The community is non-gated and and located approximately 10 minutes to the beach.  It adjoins the Park Avenue Estates and Top of the World communities and sits directly across the valley from the upscale Temple Hills community.  Lower Mystic Hills homes offer quick access to the

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.

A real estate agent will put a home "on hold" for a wide range of reasons.  Sometimes seller's will have some kind of an emergency come up and still want to sell the home but are unable to cooperate with showings during a short period of times.  In other cases we see a lot of short sale and bank
