Dana Point has some really great communities that are located near the beach and also represent some of the lowest priced condos.  I recently took a listing in the Spinnaker Run community the is located about a 5 to 10 minute bike ride to the beach and was surprised to learn that it was the lowest priced listing at $325,000.  It was a small condo one one bedroom, one bath and under 600 square feet so it's not for everyone but would be a perfect starter home for a young couple or a nice investment property.  The community offers a nice association pool, spa and a bike trail that takes you down to the beach in about 5 minutes or so.  Not too bad for $325,000 and considering it is currently the lowest priced condo in Dana Point as of the first week in April

With real estate prices increasing in the beach communities it's getting much harder to find condos for under $400,000 in Dana Point, California.  There are still some viable good options available in this price point for 4 condo communities that we can recommend.  It seems like it was only a couple of years ago that many of these same condos were priced in the $300,000 range, a true showing of the appreciation values here in Orange County.  Here is our guide to condos in this price range.

The very first place I always recommend when I learn someone is looking for a property under $500,000 is the Ritz Pointe gated community.  It's really hard to get much better in this price point with several amenities that make it more desirable then the rest on this

We are currently working with one real estate buyer who is looking to purchase a condo in the Dana Point area.  His price range is under $600,000 and wants to know what options he has available to him.  This time of the year listings are still hard to come by as most seller's tend to not list their homes during the holidays.  As we get closer to February the inventory of condos available will increase and he will have more options to choose from.  These are the condo buildings that we explained to him will have the best opportunities.

First, our go-to condo building when someone is looking in the $400,000 to $500,000 range are the units located in the gated Ritz Pointe community known as "Monarch Hills" condos.  These are probably the best value when
