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

We work with a lot of first time home buyers who are always trying to figure out the best places to live in Newport Beach. Real Estate prices in  Newport Beach have gone up so much in the last several years that it's been really hard for those buying a home for the first time.  We still have seen some really good investments that have come on the market this year so it's still not impossible to find a good starter home.  There are some of the places we recommend looking when first starting to think about buying a home.  We always recommend starting with what your budget will allow and then work your way up.  If that means starting with a smaller condo then that typically is the best way to go.

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

One of the most impressive gated communities by the beach in Newport Beach is arguably the Pelican Point community.  If you have never been inside this community you are not alone as it boasts one of the toughest neighborhoods to enter with 24 hour around the clock security gate that secures the small collection of homes that exist here.  Getting to to this entrance of this community is rather easy as it's right on the edge of the Corona Del Mar and Newport Coast border and the only gated community along the beach in this area.  Pelican Point is a sister neighborhood to the upscale tracts like Pelican Hill which is named after the 5 star Pelican Hill hotel that resides in this area.  What you can expect are some of the nicest Spanish & Mediterranean style

One of the top gated communities in Southern California is arguably the Pelican Hill and Pelican Crest neighborhoods.  Living in either of these communities really makes a statement as they feature so of the most expensive homes found in Orange County, California.  Real Estate prices currently range from $12,500,000 to $45,000,000 with a large number of sales in the last several years and there are several reasons for the popularity of this community.  One of the biggest selling points is it's location that arguably has some of the best ocean views in all of Orange County.  The views can be truly breathtaking with a combination of both ocean and golf course views.  Some of my favorite views from this location is actually the view of the Newport Bay

There are several Newport Beach homes that are scheduled to be coming soon on the market for sale.  Home buyers now have real time access to these Newport Beach properties with a new coming soon feature that has been added to our website.  What is exactly is a coming soon listing?  Think about any time you have spoken with a real estate agent and they know of a property that will be coming on the market in the near future.  Many of these kind of properties were sold privately before ever becoming public knowledge so our Realtor member association has come up with a way that these can be shared publicly online so everyone has the same access to these properties.

The Newport Beach Real Estate market has been very strong for the past 9 months due to a
