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

The Newport Beach market has seen a big increase in activity and real estate prices with homes selling at record speed with many homes selling over asking price.  The reason why we are seeing this activity is a combination of low interest rates combined with low inventory of homes causing many buyers to bid against each other on the same property.  Since the inventory of homes is so low it's the perfect time for home builders who are building homes in order to sell when they are finished.  We have seen a flurry of activity of new homes being built with many brand new listings coming on the market in various areas throughout Newport Beach.  The cost to build a home has also gone up in the last year as lumber prices among other building materials has gone

One of the great things when searching for homes is finding a home that has never been on the market before or for many years.  These are typically very desirable homes that the owners had decided not to sell for a very long time. We see a good mixture of homes that have never been on the market before to homes that haven't come on the market in the last 40 to 50 years.  A perfect example of this is a home located at 1802 W Oceanfront in Newport Beach.  The home had been within the same family for many generations and passed on to each set of family members throughout the years.  The duplex property was built in 1929 so expect smaller sized bedrooms, baths and closets.  The true selling point for this home it's prime location right on the beach with sit

Newport Beach has a wide variety of homes to choose from luxury bay front properties to those located in the many gated communities that exist within the city.  Many like looking for homes that have extra space and that allow room for extended guests or for additional revenue streams.  No matter what the reason, duplex properties are very much south after in Newport Beach and often command a premium in price depending on it's location, size and condition.  R2 Zoning often refers to homes that are duplex properties and are often advertised in the property description as having this kind of zoning.

One of the best areas to find these homes is located in the Balboa Peninsula area.  This is such a great area that is widely popular due to having the Newport

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

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

The city of Newport Beach is filled with many luxury homes and condos that occupy some of the most expensive land in all of Southern California.  Due to the high cost of land many of these homes are limited on building square footage and don't have the necessary space for a guest casita.  There are a few places that we recommend starting your search that do have homes with a guest casita that has it's own entrance.

The best place to look for homes with a guest casita is on Balboa Island in Newport Beach.  There are a good number of homes located here that are considered duplex properties which means having the main living house located in the front and a detached house behind it.  It's very common for most owners on Balboa Island to live in the front

Balboa Island is well known for having some of the best curb appeal homes in all of Newport Beach.  The small island is filled with one and two story traditional style homes that can sit on the waters edge with direct bay front views.  For the most part the island is filled with single family homes with no residential condos.  There are however many duplex properties properties located on both the main and little island that offer homeowners and investors alike investment opportunities.  

Balboa Island itself is not a cheap place to live with real estate starting well just under the $2 million dollar price point.  Duplex properties will typically start at just above $2 million and can be found in older homes that were built anywhere from the 1920's to
