It's that time of the year again when everyone seems to be looking for a furnished vacation rental property.  Most people that call into the office are looking for the months of June & July as these tend to be the most requested and popular months.  August and September tend to be little more affordable than June & July if you are flexible on your dates and don't need to come on any specific date.  One thing to keep in mind is a thing called June Gloom that we have every year in Southern California where there is pretty much a solid month of overcast skies.  The last several years this has occurred in the month of May but this year we have had pretty sunny weather so far so it may hit in the month of June or a little bit later.  Many tourists that come to

Doing a 1031 exchange can be very stressful due to the time constraints you have to locate and close on a property.  The times frames are basically 45 days to identify up to 3 properties and then to close on one of those with 180 days after closing escrow on the previous property.  I have gone through this process several times and it can be really crazy during those 45 days in trying to locate the perfect exchange property.  There are several homes throughout the Newport Beach area that are being marketed by the owners real estate agents as potential 1031 exchange properties.  Of course, a real estate agent can say a property is a good investment but ultimately it's up to the buyer to determine this.

One of the properties noted is located in the

One of the most common requests we get from clients looking for a home is having a main floor master bedroom.  This is especially true for baby boomers who are looking to settle in their retirement home but have concerns about having to go up and down the stairs.  Having a main floor bedroom still allows the buyer to buy a larger home with plenty of room for incoming guests and additional family members.

There are several neighborhoods that offer a downstairs Master bedroom in their floor plans if you know where to look.  Communities like Big Canyon offer large single family two story homes that come with a downstairs Master.  Other great options found in the Newport Beach area for residential single family homes would be the Cliffhaven and Lido Isle

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

We had a client recently contact us looking for a one story home in the Jasmine Creek neighborhood.  Jasmine Creek is a wonderful gated community in the Corona Del Mar area that is filled with one and two story homes.  The single level properties in this community don't come on the market that often so it's kind of rare to be able to find one available for sale.  They do come on the market from time to time so It's possible to be able to find them.  We also did a search of past one story homes that were on the market that did not sell and were able to locate a couple of properties this way.  Both of these owners said they would be open to selling and offered us a private showing for our client.

Real Estate prices for these one story homes currently run

We get requests from clients who are looking to buy a condo in the Newport Beach area and that are looking for a unit that has a private elevator.  For the most part, these are hard to find since most of the condo buildings in Newport Beach have community elevators for everyone to use.  Only a few select buildings offer private elevators that go directly up to the individual unit.  If you know where to look and have the money to spend then we recommend the following buildings.

First, if price is no object then the condos at the Meridian are a must see.  The condos were built there approximately four years ago and has one of the best locations in Newport Beach situated between the Fashion Island shopping center and the Newport Beach country club golf

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
