The Harbor View Knoll area is located next to the Pavilions shopping center and features cute Cape Cod style homes in the heart of Newport Beach.  The homes are considered residential town homes that share one common wall with the neighboring property.  Inventory was extremely low earlier this year but several new listings have come on the market in the last several weeks.  The townhouses are often priced in the high $800,000 to mid $950,000 range and offer a variety of amenities and views.  From the homes currently on the market, views of the community pool, greenbelts and forest areas can be seen.

The inside of the homes will vary a lot.  Since the properties were built in the early 1970's owners have done various degrees or renovation to them.  2730

Harbor View is the quintessential neighborhood in Newport Beach with classic Bungalow style two story homes located in the heart of central Newport Beach.  The homes seem to almost be taken out of a movie set and have some of the best curb appeal for homes you will find in Newport Beach.  For the most part, homes in the Harbor View area will not have much of an ocean view due to it's flat topography.   For those homes set high enough on the ridge views of the ocean can be seen.  If you are looking to buy in this neighborhood expect to find homes priced at least $1.7 million and up.  The larger cottage style homes are much more expensive and often range in the mid $2 million to low $3 million range.

January has come to an end and the market has been very active in Newport Beach, California.  The majority of homes sales in Jan 2013 were between the $1,000,000 to $2,500,000 price point in Newport Beach.  The highest grossing sale was a four bedroom, 2,345 square foot ocean front home that sold for $3,350,000.  We have been reporting for some time now that some of the best oceanfront deals are to be found in Newport Beach as similar homes in neighboring towns like Laguna Beach and Dana Point have beachfront homes at much higher price points.  The lowest sale in Jan 2013 in Newport Beach was a probate sale in the Versailles condo building where a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo sold for $275,000.  Versailles is a small complex where you can find condos under the

As the market continues to change in Newport Beach one thing is true that the deals are becoming harder to find as the bottom of the real estate market has passed us.  Local media outlets have reported that the Newport Beach Real Estate market is now on an upswing which is causing many home buyers who were on the fence to get out and start looking at properties.  Interest Mortgage rates are still low making this the perfect storm for locating a home.  Currently, the inventory of homes is at a very low point making it even more difficult to find the "good deals."  When looking for well priced homes we always recommend distressed properties.  In the last several years the common thread for most home buyers is finding the nicest home for the lowest price.
