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 best places we love in the Newport Beach area

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

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

We recently received a call from a client who wanted to buy a condo in Newport Beach.  Her only stipulation that there needed to be a guard attendant beyond the gated entrance.  In Newport Beach there a lot of 24 hour guard gated communities but they almost all tend to be for residential single family homes.  There are two very popular communities for those looking for a gate attendant for a condo development in Newport Beach and are described here.

By far, the very best place to start you search is the Sea Island community in Newport Beach.  This comes with a 24 hour guard gate attendant with homes that can offer golf course, city light and back bay views.  There are two different neighborhoods in Sea Island so there tends to be a good selection of

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

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 benefits of being a real estate agent is getting exclusive viewings of the latest homes and condos to come on the market in Newport Beach.  Not all properties are but on this caravan open house but the large majority of brand new listings like to get this added exposure to qualified agents who may have clients looking for a particular type of property.  Broker Preview in Newport Beach happens every Friday from 11:00am to 2:00pm and often includes refreshments of food and drinks to entice the agents to come to their listing.

What do you need to do to get your home on the broker preview list?  First, the home must be added into the multiple listing service which instantly gains you exposure over the Internet and all of the real estate website
