The typography of Laguna Beach is really interesting as it arguably offers more ocean view properties due to it's rolling hillsides that overlook the Pacific Ocean.  When it comes to properties located on the ocean front there are many properties that are located high on a cliff that overlook the ocean but very few homes that are actually located on the sandy beach.  Neighboring towns like Dana Point and Newport Beach do have many properties located on the sand but finding one in Laguna Beach can be really tough.  There are a couple exceptions to this and the homes that are located on the sand are truly spectacular.

The first place to look is the Thousands Steps Beach area in the South Laguna area of Laguna Beach.  The area gets its name since there

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

The real estate market in Laguna Beach has started to make a shift as in most of the country with home staying on the market for a little longer than what we have seen in recent years.  One of the main reasons for this shift is a combination of factors which include increasing higher interest rates, decline in the stock market and an oversees International war.  It feels like we may be heading to more of a slow down here in Laguna Beach which will result in more inventory of homes on the market and the possibility of declining real estate asking prices.  For buyers who have to get a loan in order to buy a home here the cost and gone up significantly from just a year ago and it is expected to get more expensive as well.  Buyers will be looking for the best

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

One of the most unique and historic property landmarks in all of the Laguna Beach is arguably Pyne Castle.  The 17 bedroom estate was originally built in 1931 and is truly one of the most amazing properties located in Southern California.  It would be similar to a Hertz Castle but located much closer to the beach.  It last seen on the market back in 2012 which is pretty amazing to see such an amazing property being listed for sale.  The castle itself is huge with an estimated 18,300 square feet of living space located on multiple levels according to our multiple listing service.  It features a total of 9 attached garages and located on a multi acre lot which is amazing when you think how valuable land is here in California by the beach.

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

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.

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
