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.

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

Laguna Beach offers some of the most expensive real estate for sale in Southern California and owners who put their home on the market know that their home must be in good condition in order to get top dollar.  There will occasionally be opportunities in the Laguna Beach market for listings that need rehab renovation to them.  The kind of rehab needed will vary depending on the property but typically these are excellent properties for those who don't mind working on a project.  

A new ocean view listing has come on the market in the Temple Hills neighborhood and is being advertised as a rehab opportunity.  The property currently features 2,100 square feet but has plants and approvals from the city of Laguna Beach to add up a 450 square feet addition.

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 Temple Hills area in Laguna Beach has just got a lot more expensive due to one of the new listings located at 2095 Temple Hills.  I had the opportunity to preview this nearly $12.888 million dollar home and the home is very large at 7,000 square feet.  The views are very interesting as it looks down the canyon area on the south side of the Temple Hills area and offers a private driveway down to the home with direct view of the ocean.

The Master suite is located on the upstairs level with main entertainments spaces located on the entry floor.  Downstairs features a theater room, workout room and plenty of room to relax.  The home was nice but I was a little shocked by the price considering most homes in the area normally sell between $2,000,000 to
