Finding a home under $700,000 in Laguna Beach can be tricky but it's still possible in certain neighborhoods.  The Terraces community in Laguna Beach is the first place we always recommend to look when someone wants to find a home in this price range.  Technically located in Laguna Beach but really more like being in the city of Aliso Viejo is a community situated near the 73 freeway off the Laguna Canyon road.  Living her gets you a Laguna Beach address which is very valuable for many as children get to attend schools in the Laguna Beach school district.  It's still a bit of a commute everyday to the downtown area of Laguna Beach so if you are looking for something in the heart of the city then the Terraces may not be the right community for you.  A lot

It's amazing what a couple years will make when looking at real estate prices in Laguna Beach, California.  Back in 2015, there were still a lot of choices for buyers looking under the $600,000 price range.  Progress to the end of the summer 2017 and only a handful of properties will come on the market in this price range as prices have really soared in the last couple of years.  Does this mean that we are headed into another real estate bubble?  A lot of people think so but they also feel it won't be the huge correction like we saw in 2008.  One reason for that is that banks are not giving out loans to everyone like they used to.  If you have ever applied for a loan in the last 10 years you know how strict banks have become.  This will hopefully

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

Many have asked if 2012 is a good time to buy a house in Laguna Beach.  As real estate inventory in Laguna Beach is reaching record lows the supply and demand for real estate is reaching a new high.  What does this mean for real estate prices?  Our experts don't believe that we will see an increase in pricing for 2012 but a very competitive market for prime properties priced at market value and offering ocean views or located on the ocean front.  We are currently seeing multiple buyers bidding one single properties especially in the short sale arena.  Short Sales are becoming the dominant way to seize a great deal in Laguna Beach but there are good and bad points about doing a short sale.  If you are patient and you act quickly when you see a good deal

A lot of Laguna Beach seller's are now looking to be creative when selling their beach home in Laguna Beach, California.  We have seen the trend of seller's offering lease options where the buyer rents for a temporary period and then has the "option" to buy the home at a later date.  Another creative finance technique is buying a home with assumable loans.  This allows for the buyer to assume the seller's existing mortgage at the interest rate that exists when the owner locked in the mortgage.  Buying a home with an assumable loan is a creative way to buy a house in today's real estate market.  We found two properties that have assumable loans with restrictions in the Victoria Beach and Terraces Laguna Beach community.  468 Ashton Drive is an ocean view
