One of the latest trends in real estate here by the beach are buyers looking for one story homes with little to no steps.  This makes sense as many of the baby boomers are realizing that they don't need a large home with a lot of levels and have often chosen for a simple one story floor plan.  There are several neighborhoods in the Dana Point area that do offer some nice single level homes even though there are no senior communities like what you would find in the neighboring town of San Clemente like the Talega Gallery, Colony Cove and Bay Cliff Village which all are dedicated tracts for those older than 55 years of age.  

One of the best places to start your search is the Niguel Shores community in Dana Point.  A lot of our clients LOVE this

Dana Point has a wide variety of architectural style homes with the large majority of homes built in the Mediterranean, Spanish, Traditional with some Contemporary style homes.  One of the unique architectural styles that we are starting to see is the Hamptons style homes. These homes tend to be really grand with an east coast vibe to it with gray siding, white trim around the windows and doors with accent round windows above the French doors.  If you can picture this than this is the essence of a Hamptons style which is also pictured below.

One of the best places to find these homes is in the newer gated community in Dana Point known as "The Strand at Headlands" which located on the beach front.  A perfect example of this is a home located in this

The city of Dana Point has a large number of gated communities with a large majority of them found in the upscale Monarch Beach area.  These include exclusive communities like The Strand at Headlands, Ritz Cove and Monarch Bay where it's not uncommon to find homes listed for over the $10 million dollars.  While many love the security that comes with living in a gated community some don't like the appeal of them being so large and prefer a smaller and more intimate neighborhood.  There are some small gated areas of homes that we love to recommend.

The first community is a little tract called Point Vista neighborhood which is only located on one street that has a manual gate at the top of the hill.  Once is inside there are an approximate total of only

The summer months are almost upon us and we are starting to see more and more clients looking for vacation rental properties in the Dana Point area.  For the most part, these short term rental properties come furnished but that is not always the case.  Some properties are more Furnished than others and really depends on the owner of the property and how much they feel like they need and want to furnish the property.  One thing we look for when looking for vacation rental properties is finding a listing that comes fully furnished.  This was we know that the home is equipped to handle all of the needs that a client renting a home for a month or more may request.

The Strand at Headlands community has had a record year in 2021 with some of the most expensive homes being sold in all of Dana Point.  With the shrinking number of listings on the market at any given time we are starting to see more buyers explore the idea of buying a piece of land and building their own custom home to their liking.  One of the good things about many of the Strand listings is that the owners of these lots have taken the time to develop architectural plans for their specific piece of land which in turn can be sent to the design review board and the city planning department for review and approval.  Typically the further the plans go in the process the easier it is to sell a lot here since approval times for both the design review board

A lot of sales have transpired for the 2021 sales year in The Strand at Headlands with a record number of transactions taking place.  So far in 2021 we have seen a total of 16 home sales ranging from $9,009,000 to $23,500,000.  There is a wide range in pricing found here since there are two different neighborhoods located here.  The two communities consist of North and South Strand which each have their own guard gated entrance with a tunnel used for golf carts that connect the two areas together.  The least expensive homes can be found in the South Strand area which is located high on a hill that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.  Many of the these homes will have wonderful panoramic views, especially for those located on the upper streets.  The more

Dana Point has a limited number of historic properties that are located all throughout the city limits with a high concentration in the downtown area called the Lantern District.  For the most part many of these homes will not offer any kind of a view but there a few select historic properties that will offer nice ocean views.  Depending on your budget there are a couple great places to start your search.  First, on the high end two of the best places to look would be on either the street Beach Road or along the cliffside overlooking the Dana Point Harbor on Santa Clara Avenue.  

Beach Road is a 24 hour guard gated community that features homes that located directly on the sand.  For anywhere in Orange County this is very hard to find and this

One of my favorite condo communities in Dana Point is the Tennis Villas neighborhood.  One of the main reasons why I like this area as it has a little bit of everything.  First, if you are looking for a beach and golf course close community then Tennis Villas is hard to beat.  It sits next to the Monarch Beach golf links so if you are an avid golfer you are going to love this location.  The golf links do take a separate membership and they are not affiliated with the Tennis Villas but are within walking distance to the golf links clubhouse which is really convenient. Second, it's all about the views at the Tennis Villas which range from panoramic golf course views as pictured below to some ocean views as well.  Finally, it doesn't hurt being located

The year 2020 is in the review mirror now and we are all looking optimistically for the year 2021.  The Dana Point real estate market was very active in the last spring, summer and winter months as low inventory and reduced mortgage interest rates really drove the demand for buyers looking to make a purchase.  So far in January 2021 the record activity continues as homes are not staying on the market for very long if they are priced correctly.  There are many buyers in the market right now that are looking for new construction homes that will be built and completed this year in 2021.   These are typically individual property owners selling homes as spec homes and not homes located in a brand new community.

With this being said, the best community to
