We get a lot of clients who initially want to drive through the town of Dana Point is to see what areas they would like to live.  A good number of these clients identify condos located off Selva Road as the place they would consider buying.  What most of these clients are referring to are the condos off Selva Road called "Niguel Beach Terrace."  The location is arguably hard to beat as you can easily walk down the steps to the beach in a matter of minutes.  It sits cross a small road that is a bluff that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and Strands Beach.  The city of Dana Point has built two sections of steps that lead directly down to the beach which adds to the value of these condos.  Some of these units will have some small ocean views but most people buy

Selling a home can be a tricky thing when looking for the right buyer to buy your home.  From time to time some sellers will offer incentives to help the buyer pick their property over another.  These are often referred to as concessions that are given by the seller to the buyer to put a deal together.  We see this a lot when the real estate market is in a decline and sellers feel the need to offer incentives to get the home sold.  In a strong real estate market it's not very common to see these extra incentives because there potentially may be a large number of buyers who may want to buy your home.

Seller concessions can vary depending on the transition but the most common incentive is to help pay a percentage of the buyers closing costs.  Closing

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

One of the most common requests that we get from clients looking to buy in Dana Point is wanting to be able to walk to restaurants, shopping and the beach.  While most people first think about living near the beach in the downtown area they are soon shocked to learn how expensive this can be.  One of the great alternatives that we like to explain to our clients is the area around the Ocean Ranch shopping center which sits on the border of the city limits of Dana Point and Laguna Niguel.  The Ocean Ranch shopping center is home to large brand name retail stores like Trader Joe's, Starbucks's, 24 hour fitness, Cinepolis USA luxury movie theater, Wells Fargo and Ralph's grocery store.  There are also many smaller boutique style retail stores and quality

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

The historic lantern district has gone under some major transformation on the last several years as the city has spent a lot of money revitalizing the downtown historic district in Dana Point.  The biggest change is a dual set of two way streets that cut through the city of Dana Point.  Before any of the changes took place Pacific Coast Highway used to be a one way street heading north and traffic would have to go through Del Prado Avenue.  

One of the condos in the Immediate area include the Pilgrim's Bluff.  The building is located at the corner of Amber Lantern and Santa Clara Avenue and is just a little over a block to the bluff front the overlooks the Dana Point Harbor.  Many locals are not even aware of this small complex since in the last 10

The Spinnaker Run gated community in Dana Point has a lot of history to it as they date back to the early 1980's when they were first built.  At the time this was one of the closest condo buildings near the beach as a total of 120 units were built.  It's a quiet setting with small one and two bedroom units nestled against the San Juan Creek area which leads directly down to Doheny Beach.  The complex typically offers some of the best deals and lowest prices for condos this close to the beach in Dana Point.

We had a client who called us today looking for a one story property that would be wheelchair accessible with no steps.  This was quite the challenge since his price range only went up to $600,000 which pretty much excludes all single family homes in Dana Point since most houses start at around $600,000 and up.  Upon sifting through the many listings currently on the market we came across a condo located in the Monarch Hills condo complex that was located on the first level with no steps into the unit.  The Monarch Hills Condo complex is located in the upscale Ritz Pointe gated community in the Monarch Beach area of Dana Point.  This is a large community with condos located on the first, second and third level of multiple buildings.  Obviously, the second

The Golden Lantern Villas is a small condo complex near the Dana Point Harbor with a total of 18 units.  Built in 1978 on the famous Santa Clara street which is just a little over one block to the bluff front that overlooks the Dana Point Harbor.  Here you will find two and three bedroom condos that rarely come on the market, normally one unit will come on the market every 15 months.  These are nice homes with interior fireplaces, large kitchens with lots of cabinetry, interior laundry room and good size Master bedrooms.
