There a number of properties currently on the market in Dana Point, Califonria that offer very unique opportunities for the right buyer.  A lot of these are for prime properties that only come on the market every generation or so and provide a once and a lifetime opportunity to own a prized piece of real estate.  We often see these in the more expensive homes like those located right on the beach or the ocean front that are advertised as special opportunities for buyers.  We also see investment opportunities for properties that mixed-use properties like duplex and triplex homes here in Dana Point.  Sometimes these are priced below market value or offer seller financing which makes this listings really stand out.

One of the best locations that is across the street from the Waldorf Astoria resort hotel is the Tennis Villas gated community.  This is one of my favorite communities as it offers beautiful Mediterranean style townhouses that typically have nice open floor plans and nice finishes to them.  One of the biggest trends in this community is to buy homes in this community and then do short term rentals since the rental industry has boomed recently.  That's why when you look at what is available in the Tennis Villas you will see a lot of rental properties that are offering these short term rental opportunities.  The best time to rent out these homes is during the high season summer months which consists of June, July and August.  During these months a lot of

The Monarch Bay community is a great place to find furnished rentals as it's considered on of the top ocean front gated community in the Dana Point area.  The location couldn't be more ideal which is situated just south of Laguna Beach with homes that can offer sweeping ocean views with close proximity to the beach.  One of the best features of this community is the direct access to the beach.  There is plenty of parking as many either take their golf carts or drive down the parking area and then take their beach items directly on to the sand.  There is a great Beach Club located here so make sure you check that out when staying here.  Living here for a month of more is great since it offers a 24 hour guard gate which offers top level security.  Also,

One visit to the Capistrano Beach area of Dana Point and you will fall in love with the unique charm of custom homes that range from the historic 1920's homes that overlook the ocean.  When driving through the area you will notice one prominent street that is "Camino Capistrano" where some of the best bluff front properties can be found.  This area is commonly referred to as "Capistrano Bluffs" due to the name of the street and the area where it's located.  A typical starting price for a home located on the bluff is around $5 million dollars with some properties priced just below this number if it's smaller and in original condition.  When looking at homes online on this street it's important to understand that there are homes located on both sides of the

Dana Woods is a great residential neighborhood in Dana Point that is made up of very cute detached single family homes that are located in the heart of Dana Point near the cross streets of Golden Lantern and Camino Del Avion. The topography of the neighborhood is typically flat so homes often don't afford much of a view at all.  There are a few exceptions to this where homes will catch an ocean view which typically commands a premium in price.  Real Estate prices in the last 10 years have really increased from prices in the mid $550,000 range in 2012 to now homes selling up to the $1.5 million range.  Some of the ocean view properties have been located at 25112 Danalaurel, 25091 Danabirch, 25084 Danabirch, 32946, Danaspruce, 25102 Danabirch, 32931

The Harbor Cove condo complex offers a unique location that is literally right in the middle of the Downtown Dana Point area.  I love these condos since they tend to offer high quality living spaces that is a short walking distance to the beach as well as having some great restaurants and shopping located right outside the building.  One thing that rarely comes up here are ocean view condos which is what a new condo listing has to offer. 24582 Del Prado #220 has just come on the market less than 10 days ago and is currently listed at $1,199,000.  The two bedroom, two bath condo features an approximate 1,280 square feet with two different levels of living space.

This was a great year for the luxury real estate market in Dana Point as two of the top three highest sales this year took place in the ocean front community of Monarch Bay.  It seems like every year the highest sales tend to be in the newer Strand at Headlands community which offers some amazing homes including the third highest sale this year.  However, the Monarch Bay community has really gone through a wonderful transformation that first started when the homes switch from being located on leased land to where you own your own land.  Since then we have seen a higher interest in this community and even the front gated entrance is seeing a major face lift as well.  

63 Monarch Bay Drive, Dana Point comes in as the highest sale at $33 million dollars

For those looking for a property that is located blocks to the beach in Southern California one of the best places to look is the city of Dana Point.  One of the main reasons for this is that there are many luxury neighborhoods that are located on the ocean side of the 5 freeway as this was the master plan of the city, especially for those homes located in the Monarch Beach area of Dana Point.  Within this area are some of the most expensive neighborhoods like Monarch Bay, Ritz Cove, Niguel Shores and The Strand at Headlands.  These offer some spectacular ocean front homes as well as properties that are located within a short walking distance to beach.  These can be very expensive homes so for those looking for some more affordable options we always
