The Newport Beach real estate market saw several properties sell for over the $15 million dollar price point with the top three highest sales consisting of properties located right next to the water in the Linda Isle and Balboa Peninsula neighborhoods.  These included luxury bay front homes as well and beach front properties located next to the sandy beach.  It's been a crazy year in real estate that was a total switch as what we experienced in 2021.  We no longer see multiple offers on a lot of properties and homes are typically staying on the market longer than we have seen in several years.  The higher end market for prime properties is still seeing home sell within one to two months if priced correctly.  The top 3 highest sales this year in Newport

One of the more popular gated neighborhoods to find rental homes near the water is the Bayshores community.  This is a very small but elegant water front community with some beautiful bay front homes.  The activity of available rental properties over the past several years has been really good with a nice selection of furnished and unfurnished homes to choose from.  There tends to be two types of lease terms for homes located here.  First, since the homes are located so close to the water and located in a very desirable location you will find some properties being offered on a short term basis.  The typically come fully furnished and offered on a monthly basis.  The other types of properties will be your standard 12 month lease to start and come

One of my favorite things to do is look at new construction homes that come on the market for sale.  I know others enjoy this same energy no matter if you are looking to buy a home or just looking for design ideas for your own home.  Newport Beach has a wide selection of new construction properties that are available for sale at any given time.  Unlike other cities like the neighboring city of Irvine, most of the new construction homes are not located in a planned community, rather they are individual properties that are typically built by a spec builder or real estate developer who is building a single home in any given community in Newport Beach.  One exception to this would be the Crystal Cove community in Newport Coast which is currently offering

The real estate market has taken a shift from the record setting years of high price market sales and various bidding wars amongst buyers to a more natural market where homes are settling on the market for a period of time.  The one thing that hasn't changed in the last several years is that home buyers are still looking for homes that need little to no work and properties that have been completely renovated.  The term "turnkey" is a real estate phrase that means that property is completely ready to go with no renovations needed in most cases.  With the market shifting and the idea of a recession looming buyers in this market do not want to take on a project which could cost them a lot of time are money.  If you are a home owner thinking about selling

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

One of the newest & most exiting communities in Newport Beach is the Lido Villas community.  Anyone familiar with the Lido area of Newport Beach understands this is prime real estate next to the Newport Bay and the Lido Village filled with quaint shopping, restaurants and it's own historic theater.  The Lido Villas builder has elected to build 23 luxury townhouses near the water with current real estate prices starting just under $2 million dollars for a two bedroom, two and a half bath townhouse with 1,870 square feet.

Many of the townhouses located here feature 3 levels of living space with roof top decks to take in the great views.  The architect for these homes did a great job creating a cohesive open floor plan that joins the various rooms
