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.

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
