One of the latest trends in real estate is looking at various places to find homes for sale that are currently not on the market for sale.  With the very low inventory of homes buyers are now staring to look at current rental properties as an avenue to see if those owners would consider selling their home.  We have found this an excellent way to find some properties where the owners might consider selling but it's important to keep a couple things in mind.  Owners of these rental properties may consider selling but since the home is not on the open market they often will want a premium in price to entice them to sell.  Also, if the property is already tenant occupied then the new buyer may have to assume that tenant and be in charge of renting it to them

One of the latest trends in real estate are fractional ownership properties.  Over the last year we are starting to see more and more of these listings come on the market for sale here in Newport Beach.  The very low price point is what grabs a lot of buyers attention thinking that they can get this beautiful home or condo for a fraction of what it would normally sell for until they read the property description and find out that it's only for partial ownership. What's happening is that larger companies interested in investing in real estate will purchase prime real estate that will have the most appeal to a large number of buyers.  This would include a nice view of the city or ocean views, open floor plan with high ceilings and a good number of rooms

Newport Beach is one of the best places when looking for water front home.  There are a wide range of luxury estate homes and condos that sit directly on the bay front.  For those looking for a townhouse on the water those are harder to come by in Newport Beach.  The main difference between a condo and a townhouse is that a townhome will be typically located on two different levels with a condo typically just on one.  There are a few places to find waterfront townhouses in Newport Beach that include Bayside Cove, Residences at the Vue Newport, Lido Parc and Newport Marina Village.

Probably the best place to look for two story townhouses in Newport Beach on the water is the Bayside Cove community.  This is a premier complex that offers wonderful water

Bay Island is one of the premier islands in Newport Beach is the Bay Island community.  Real Estate prices currently start at $5 million and have sold for more than 10 million dollars in recent years.  The island is set up differently that other neighborhoods in Newport Beach which makes it problematic in case you need to get a loan. A real estate agent that has a listing on Bay Island sent me these quotes that help understand the situation here.  It reads "Unlike the financing of the purchase of real property where a lender records a deed of trust against the property as security for the loan, only the stock certificate may be used as collateral.  To protect the Corporation's interests, as well as the lenders, an agreement between the shareholders,

With every down turn in the real estate market we start to see more and more properties thinking creatively on how to sell their home.  One of ways that some listings get sold is to offer some kind of seller financing to help the buyer be able to get a loan on the property.  Seller financing is something that is not typically popular when the market is hot and is normally only seen when homes are taking longer than usual to sell.  The current marketplace in Newport Beach is relatively quiet right now since the months of October through the end of the year is considered the off-season and is normally not a busy time of the year.  Homes do take longer to sell right now so we are starting to see some sellers offer some kind of seller financing to help get

Beacon Bay is one of the premier bay front communities in Newport Beach with many homes located near a sandy beach that's located in this upscale neighborhood.  One thing that many don't realize is that homes in this community are under lease land.  Beacon Bay is an area that is included in the city of Newport Beach Tidelands which requires the new owner of the property to sign a 50 year lease of the land with the city. The annual lease price is based off the final sales price of the home and calculated at 2.5% of the purchase price.  This is paid on a monthly basis with annual CPI adjustments as well.  One of the stipulations is that you cannot purchase the land under which the property sits on.  We have copies of this lease agreement which is currently

One of the best kept secrets in Newport Beach is the bay front and ocean view community of Newport Shores.  The neighborhood is located at the base of the Santa Ana River that forms a small bay front area that is located adjacent to the Newport Shores community.  Located between the bay and the Pacific Ocean is a natural preserve wetlands area that allows for unobstructed views from select homes in this tract.  Homes that are located facing the canal rarely come on the market for sale and are typically priced close to the $2 million dollar range.

Real Estate prices currently start at $1,499,998 for a four bedroom, three bath home with 1,951 square feet of living space.  There is one lower price home that is on "hold' status and priced at $1,100,000.

The newly released Bravo TV show "Real Estate Wars" features two teams that compete for business in the Orange County area of Southern California. The two teams are lead by John McMonigle and Jo Jo Watson in which they often fiercely go after the same seller who wants to sell a home here by the beach.  One of the properties featured was a luxury Newport Beach home located directly on the sand in the Balboa Peninsula area.  This appeared in Season 1, episode 2 where Jo Jo's Team member Kylie Mccullough secures an ocean front beach home and lists it for $10,800,000.  The agreement of the listing was based on Kylie finding two side by side properties on the beach as the replacement property.  The home officially went on the market last summer on July 18th,
