Dana Point has several communities that offer enough land and space to allow for RV parking.  Since Dana Point has so many communities that are under a homeowner association it's difficult to find space for RV parking since there are many rules and regulations put in place to restrict homeowners from doing this.  It's much easier to find an older community that is not under a homeowners association that allows for more freedom to do various things without a community oversight.  One such area is the Capistrano Beach area.  

Capistrano Beach covers both sides of the 5 freeway with beach homes on the ocean side and large ocean view properties on the east side.  There are select properties on the east side that have larger parcels on land with long

Owning a home that's located on a double lot holds a lot of value.  We have seen some really iconic homes that were located on 2 lots be subdivided into two different homes which is really a shame since part of the charm of the home is having the extra land space to really enjoy the Southern California weather and ocean views.  There are still a few homes left that have not been subdivided and still located on double lots. They are few and far between and rarely come on the market for sale.  It's important to note that the price range often reflects the value if the home were subdivided and if two homes were to built in it's place.

We get a lot of calls for clients who are currently looking to rent a home but in the near future be able to purchase a property.  They often ask us if the current owner would consider a lease option that would allow them to lease the home and then purchase it at a later date.  This can be a tricky transaction and often should be negotiated by a licensed California real estate agent who has done this before.  The basic concept is to find a rental property that you like and ask the owner if they are open to selling it.  If they say yes then you have the potential to set up a lease option.  Here are the points you want to consider and negotiate.
