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 recent occurrences that has happened in the last year due to the COVID vaccine in the trend for more homes to have private gyms.  This started soon after the stay at home order that occurred in April 2020 when many were forced to stay inside their homes and not be able to visit their local gym.  This lead to a large number of homeowners buying some kind of gym equipment to help them stay in shape.  The pandemic has resulted in more families having a dedicated space in their home or garage for some kind of gym or fitness area.  Of course, some of the more expensive and large estate homes have always had this feature inside their homes as it's a big selling item when they go to sell.

Many of the lower priced homes featured here having a bonus

The Villa Balboa is a great place to find an ocean view condo in the heart of the Newport Beach area.  This complex is very large with a total of approximately 60 units.  The building itself has many angels and offers a wide variety of views that include the Newport Bay, Ocean and Catalina Island.  The large majority of condos in this complex do offer some kind of a view with ocean view condo prices currently starting at just over $400,000 for a simple one bedroom unit that cover just a little over 1,100 square feet.  Luxury condos like the one pictured below will have a more panoramic view of the ocean and city lights and will normally command a premium in price.  Expect these large units to be priced anywhere from the mid $700,000 to well over $1

January has come to an end and the market has been very active in Newport Beach, California.  The majority of homes sales in Jan 2013 were between the $1,000,000 to $2,500,000 price point in Newport Beach.  The highest grossing sale was a four bedroom, 2,345 square foot ocean front home that sold for $3,350,000.  We have been reporting for some time now that some of the best oceanfront deals are to be found in Newport Beach as similar homes in neighboring towns like Laguna Beach and Dana Point have beachfront homes at much higher price points.  The lowest sale in Jan 2013 in Newport Beach was a probate sale in the Versailles condo building where a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo sold for $275,000.  Versailles is a small complex where you can find condos under the

As the market continues to change in Newport Beach one thing is true that the deals are becoming harder to find as the bottom of the real estate market has passed us.  Local media outlets have reported that the Newport Beach Real Estate market is now on an upswing which is causing many home buyers who were on the fence to get out and start looking at properties.  Interest Mortgage rates are still low making this the perfect storm for locating a home.  Currently, the inventory of homes is at a very low point making it even more difficult to find the "good deals."  When looking for well priced homes we always recommend distressed properties.  In the last several years the common thread for most home buyers is finding the nicest home for the lowest price.

The Newport Beach Real Estate market is definitely picking up as recent reports in the OC Register indicate a spike in the number of buyers making offers on property.  A perfect example of this is an ocean view condo in the Newport Heights area that I was showing over the weekend.  The condo was located in the Versailles gated community, which is located just a couple blocks to the pacific ocean and the sandy beach.  The condo was located on the penthouse level with two large bedrooms and great ocean views from the living room and master bedroom.  Being bank owned and priced very low at $275,000, the condo accepted an offer with only being on the market for 8 short days.  If you are in the market to buy property in Newport Beach keep in mind other buyers
