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

Beyond the traditional ways of buying a home where you make an offer, get it accepted, close escrow and then move into a home is the Life Estate.  A Life Estate is a legally binding contract that allows the current owner to live in the house even after the property is sold.  This turns to be a good deal for the owner but not such a good deal for the one who is buying the property.  This has recently been made news headlines with the sale of the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles where the current owner, Hugh Heffner, wishes to stay in the house until he dies.

When marking a home for sale with a life estate, one of the negative side effects this may cause is a very limited number of buyers that would be willing to purchase a property with a Life Estate

One of the unique things seller's are doing in today's Newport Beach Real Estate market is condo conversions.  The process entails taking a multi-family duplex style property and converting them into individual condos.  By doing this the total property value of the property typically increases as two stand alone condos are normally worth more than one duplex building.  This is not an easy task by any stretch of the imagination but the benefits often make the process very worthwhile and profitable.  The entire Newport Towers building located on the Newport Bay recently went through the condo conversion process as well and turned all of the units into individual condos.

A condo conversion has just been completed at 5306 Seashore Drive in Newport Beach.
