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 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

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

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.
