This was a great year for the luxury real estate market in Dana Point as two of the top three highest sales this year took place in the ocean front community of Monarch Bay.  It seems like every year the highest sales tend to be in the newer Strand at Headlands community which offers some amazing homes including the third highest sale this year.  However, the Monarch Bay community has really gone through a wonderful transformation that first started when the homes switch from being located on leased land to where you own your own land.  Since then we have seen a higher interest in this community and even the front gated entrance is seeing a major face lift as well.

Dana Point has a wide variety of architectural style homes with the large majority of homes built in the Mediterranean, Spanish, Traditional with some Contemporary style homes.  One of the unique architectural styles that we are starting to see is the Hamptons style homes. These homes tend to be really grand with an east coast vibe to it with gray siding, white trim around the windows and doors with accent round windows above the French doors.  If you can picture this than this is the essence of a Hamptons style which is also pictured below.

The Strand at Headlands community has had a record year in 2021 with some of the most expensive homes being sold in all of Dana Point.  With the shrinking number of listings on the market at any given time we are starting to see more buyers explore the idea of buying a piece of land and building their own custom home to their liking.  One of the good things about many of the Strand listings is that the owners of these lots have taken the time to develop architectural plans for their specific piece of land which in turn can be sent to the design review board and the city planning department for review and approval.  Typically the further the plans go in the process the easier it is to sell a lot here since approval times for both the design review board

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.

With this being said, the best community to

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
