  The City of Laguna Beach will now be enforcing a tax that had been on the books but not enforced previously.  A 10% tax will have to be paid on all bookings beginning July 1, 2010.  This tax will not affect those that are annual leases, but the short term leases.  Typically this tax is paid by ...

  In today’s OC Register, a Laguna Beach home was featured that recently sold for approximately $835,000. so I thought you might be curious to know what you can buy in that price range.  At the peak of the market in 2005/2006 one couldn’t buy a nice detached home for less than $1 million.  Today ...

  It’s true.  I believe we have nearly hit bottom in the affordable parts of the communities of Laguna Niguel ocean view homes and Dana Point ocean view homes.  Those homes that sit near the coast and are priced under $650,000. are in high demand.  Especially if one wants to avoid a short sale or...

  Today was a sunny beautiful beach day in Laguna Beach and Dana Point.  I was touring a client to find a good investment fixer.  He wants a great ocean view project with upside potential.  We were looking in the Dana Point ocean view and Dana Point oceanfront communities of Monarch Bay, Monarch ...

  Have the luxury homes really suffered along the coast?  Do the Laguna Beach oceanfront and ocean view homes sustain their value?  I compared the first seven months of this year in 2009, to last year in 2008.  What I saw was interesting.  The average sale price of a Laguna Beach oceanfront or La...
