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

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

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

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

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 community has recently gained a lot of nationwide exposure due to the Bravo TV show "Orange County Housewives" where a Breakers Drive home was owned by one of the housewives, Kelly Dodd.  The home was often featured on several episodes and recently sold last month on 10/18/2017 for $5,000,000.  The home featured a total of five bedrooms, five baths with 4,370 square feet and located in a three story home that truly captured the stunning views froths elevated

The newly released Bravo TV show "Real Estate Wars" features two teams that compete for business in the Orange County area of Southern California. The two teams are lead by John McMonigle and Jo Jo Watson in which they often fiercely go after the same seller who wants to sell a home here by the beach.  One of the properties featured was a luxury Newport Beach home located directly on the sand in the Balboa Peninsula area.  This appeared in Season 1, episode 2 where Jo Jo's Team member Kylie Mccullough secures an ocean front beach home and lists it for $10,800,000.  The agreement of the listing was based on Kylie finding two side by side properties on the beach as the replacement property.  The home officially went on the market last summer on July 18th,
