One of my favorite gated neighborhoods in Dana Point is the Regatta tract.  One of the reasons why this is such a great community is the prime Monarch Beach location that is just minutes to the bluff that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the Dana Point Harbor and a short driving distance to the beach.  If you are lucky enough to find a property that has an ocean view then that is a big selling point.  Over the last several years there has been several rentals that have come on the market each year.  On average, there are 6 to 10 rentals that come up for lease that have a wide variety of a range.  In 2020, we have seen rentals from $3,200 for a three bedroom, two bath home to $6,000 a month for a newly renovated ocean view home.  For the most part these are

One of our most requested communities for finding rentals in the Dana Point area is the Ritz Pointe community.  There are a number of reasons why so many are drawn to the community that sits adjacent to the Monarch Beach Resort which was formerly the St. Regis Hotel.  First, the community is guard gated which means there is a full time attendant there 24 hours a day.  In fact, there are actually 2 gates that go into this community which makes it's very convenient.  A lot of people ask us why there is 2 gates for a community that offers affordable condos for sale and for lease and there is a great reason why.  

When these condos were first built they were put next to larger single family home neighborhoods that are much more expensive with some

The lantern village area is well known for having great single family homes that can overlook the Pacific Ocean.  This area is also a great place to find residential condos that are within walking distance to the Dana Point Harbor with some ocean and harbor views.  For those looking for a large view then look for the condos located on Green Lantern street.  The street has arguably the best views in Dana Point with jaw dropping views of the Dana Point Harbor and coastline.  The cliffside that goes up to Green Lantern street is pretty steep but the views are really great from this elevated level.

Dana Point has a wide range of residential homes and condos on the market at any given time.  One of the best features in a home to give the feeling of extra space is having cathedral ceilings.  Having tall ceilings is one of the best thing you can find in a home since it doesn't take up extra space and really gives the illusion of having a bigger place than what you have without paying for the extra square footage.  The Ritz Cove community is a perfect example of this as many of the homes that were built here do feature cathedral ceilings and really make the homes feel like mini-estate homes.  Of course, these homes are often price above the five million dollar range and this is what you expect in a home in this price point.  Another great place to look

One of the more popular places to live in Dana Point is the Capistrano Beach area.  Near the bluff that overlooks the ocean is a well known Pines Park that tends to be a gathering place for many of the locals that live in this area.  Homes in this area will command a premium in price due to the close proximity to the water and being all of the homes are custom built.  In fact, you will see some homes here that were built in the 1920's that have all the charm and character that you would expect.  There are also a good mixture of Mediterranean, Spanish, Traditional and Contemporary homes here.  If you say you live near Pines Park many of the locals will know the exact area that you are talking about and know the unique homes that exist in this area.

Seller Financing is a great way to buy a home that doesn't involve a traditional lender.  These are typically hard to come by and more often than not you need to inquire with the property owner if they are willing to finance either a portion of the entire amount of the purchase price.  The first thing to look for is the amount of money the current owner owns on the property.  This way you will be able to figure out the approximate amount they will be able to finance.  For example, if the home is worth $1 million dollars and they owe $200,000 to the mortgage bank then have an approximate $800,000 amount to finance.  These numbers are approximate since sellers often have fee's associated with closing costs, real estate commissions, etc that would be

Dana Point is well known for having wonderful panoramic views from many locations throughout this beach town.  While having an ocean view is always a selling point an upgrade to this would be having a sit-down ocean view.  What exactly does this mean.  A sit down ocean view is where you can be sitting down in your home and have a nice view of the ocean.  Many real estate properties online that advertise an ocean view can range from a small peek-a-boo view where you have to stretch to see the ocean while other views can be seen while you walk through the home but not when sitting down.  When you have a sit-down view it's considered a premium view in the eyes of real estate agents.  There are several places to look in the Dana Point area to find these kind

Finding a home located on a corner lot has a lot of value to certain real estate home buyers.  A corner lot usually means that you only have neighbor to the side of you offering an extra level of privacy in the backyard.  Inside the home this often also means that you might have windows that overlook open spaces instead of looking at a neighboring house.  Some of the cons for buying a corner lot is that the location might be near a busy street where there is a lot of thru traffic adding to extra noise.  For the most part, having a home in this kind of location is a selling point that many sellers like to advertise when putting a home on the market for sale.  We did a quick search for current homes for sale in Dana Point and found 9 properties that were

Every December we will look back at what has sold in the city of Dana Point and every. year we are not surprised to learn that some of the most expensive homes were sold in the Strand at Headlands community.  In fact, 2 of the top 3 highest sold properties this year were sold at the Strand but for far less than 2018 which topped over $23 million.  This year the top 3 properties range between $8 and $14 dollars which is far less than the previous year.  This does not negate that this was a very busy year with over 500 homes sold with a very strong economy helping the cause.  Here is a quick run down of the top 3 sales.

It's no surprise that the highest sale is located at the Strand at Headlands community.  21 Beach View Avenue was on the market for
