Huntington Beach offers a wide variety of properties from luxury ocean view homes, residential condos and even manufactured homes.  For a beach town, Huntington Beach arguably has some of the biggest choices when it comes to buying a residential condo near the beach.  We often get calls from clients looking for affordable properties by the beach and we always recommend the city of Huntington Beach due to it's affordable price points.  The only thing to keep in mind when looking for a condo is to make sure it's not located under a land lease where you don't own the land.  There are several condos that fit that criteria and can be found in neighborhoods like the Gables and Harbour Vista communities.  Of course, the best condos are often those located on the

One of the more popular communities in Huntington Beach when looking for a rental property is the Seabridge community.  What makes this a little bit of a challenge is that there are two neighborhoods in Huntington Beach called Seabridge so it's important to know the differences before making a decision on where to rent a home.  The first one is located near the Downtown area of Huntington Beach is a gated community with a variety of condos located here.  Some of these include Seabridge Lakes, Seabridge Villas and Seabridge Townhomes.  I would say this is probably the more popular Seabridge community due to the variety of units that are located here with some offering lake views.  Plus the location being a short driving distance to the downtown area and

One of most favorite places to find water front condos in Huntington Beach is the Huntington Mariner community.  The location is really hard to beat as it sits next to the Huntington Harbour and also backs to Coast Highway as well.  Just crossing Coast Highway and walking a couple blocks takes you directly to the beach so it's truly the best of both worlds.  Many of these homes come with their own private boat docks which is a very much a sought after commodity when living in Huntington Beach.  There are several floor plans that exist here that range from two to three bedrooms that average around the 1,500 and 1,600 square feet of living space range.

Real Estate prices are surprisingly affordable with most homes listed just above the $1.3 million

One of the favorite places to find a rental property near the water is the Sea Harbour community.   If you have ever been to the Huntington Harbour area of Huntington Beach you will fall in love with the beautiful homes among the blue waters of the bay.  The Sea Harbour community offers a prime location next to the water with select units in this building offer their own private boat docks.  Most of the units located are longer term leases that typically start with a 12 month lease then go month-to-month after that unless another lease extension is signed at that point.   Rental prices for the most part have remained consistent and one of the best deals when you consider living next to the beach and just minutes to the beach.

When comparing real estate prices in Orange County for beach properties some of the best values can be found in the city of Huntington Beach.  There are still many single family homes that can be found for under the $1 million dollar price point which is almost impossible to find in neighboring beach towns like Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point and San Clemente.  One of the reasons for these affordable homes is the size of Huntington Beach which has a large number of beach homes that were originally built in the 1950's and 1960's.  A lot of these homes were mass produced at the time so there is a large number of inventory of these types of properties which keeps the prices down.  These one story homes often feature a similar floor plans with three

The Huntington Landmark is arguably one of the most popular 55+ communities in all of Southern California with a lot to offer for those looking for an active adult senior community.  There is a wide range of housing provided here with some of the most popular floor plans that can be found here are the two bedroom condos.  Real Estate prices like everything else have been going up in the last year with the lowest price sale in the last 365 days was a two bedroom condo that sold for $400,000 in February 2021.  The highest sale occurred in October 2021 where a two bedroom condo sold for $735,000.  This wide range of pricing often comes down to the size of the condo as well as the condition and number of upgrades found in the property.

There are some neighborhoods in Huntington Beach where rentals rarely come on the market and when they do they tend to rent out very quickly.  This sure seems to be the case about the popular La Cuesta By The Sea community in Huntington Beach.  On average, we tend to see only 1 rental listing every year come on the market here with homes renting out on average of 30 days or less.  One of the reasons for it's popularity is the type of you can find here that often comes with at least two to three bedrooms with generous size three bedroom floor plans that can span over 1,500 square feet of living space.  What I love about these homes is that they often come with rooms that offer vaulted ceilings that give an illusion of extra space as well as an attached two

The Westmont community is a very popular place to find one and two story homes in the heart of Huntington Beach.  We love this community due to the simple yet efficient floor plans that exist in many of these one story homes.   For the most part these were built in the early 1960's and considered classic beach cottage style homes that you will find throughout Huntington Bech.  What makes these neighborhood unique are the smaller streets that often feature cut-de-sac locations that are very much sought after due to their private location.  The properties are also located within a short driving distance to the 405 freeway which makes commuting to work much easier compared with some parts of Huntington Beach takes over 20 minutes or more to get to the

The Harbour Vista community in Huntington Beach is one of the most requested condo tracts due to it's very attractive price points by the beach.  Many buyers get really excited when they see condos still in the mid $300,000 for a two or three bedroom condo with over 1,000 square feet of living space.  The one thing we try to educate buyers on for this community is the concept of a land lease which the Harbour Vista community has associated with it.  For example there is one current listing at 16512 Blackbeard Lane #201 that is listed for sale at $385,000 and features 3 bedrooms with an approximate $385,000.  The listing indicates that the land lease is to expire on 08/31/2041 which has a monthly fee of $230.00.  This is in addition to the $581.00 a month

Huntington Beach is a very popular beach town in the coastal Orange County area that is rich in history dating back to the early 1920's when many of the original beach properties were built here.  Most of the homes are located throughout Huntington Beach with a high concentration of them situated in the Downtown area.  Every year we see about 4 or 5 of these homes come on the market each year that can really vary in size.  Some of the most affordable historic homes will be those on the smaller size that average under 1,000 square feet and are often called tiny houses.  There are also very elegant larger historic properties built in the 1920's that offer over 2,000 square feet of living space.  These tend to be the most sought after properties since they

One of my favorite places to look for large rental properties is the Seacliff Club Series neighborhood.  First of all is located within a 24 hour guard gated community which is very impressive.  Security here is very strict so don't expect to go through this community unless you live here or a guest of one of the owners.  The properties located here are considered townhomes with multiple levels of living space.  You either love or hate having different levels as it does require a lot of steps going up and down between the different levels.  For the most part you have an attached two car garage located on the street level with a series of steps going up to the first level where you have the kitchen, living and dining room.  Up one more flight of steps and

When I first move to the Orange County and was looking at homes the word that a lot of real estate agents would use was that the home was "turnkey."  At first I had no idea what they were talking about since it seems to be real estate lingo but quickly understood what they were talking about.  Basically, the phrase means to turn the key and enter the home without having to do any repairs, etc.  This phrase is used so much that it's the one keyword to look for if you are in the market to find a home that doesn't need any work done to it.  Huntington Beach has several homes currently on the market that are in this condition with a wide range of prices from smaller residential condos to single family homes.

Buyers in this current real estate market are

One of the most affordable places to find long term rentals in the Huntington Beach area is the Villa Warner complex.  The location is near the cross streets of Edwards and Warner street that is ideally located approximately halfway been the beach and the 405 freeway. Rental prices are often found under $2,000 a month with the large majority of these being one bedroom units.  There are some 2 bedroom rentals that do come up on the market and tend to be closer to the $2,000 a month range while one bedroom units can often be found in the $1,700 to $1,900 price range.  All of these condos are individually owned so each property terms will be different.  For the most part these are 12 month leases that require a first months rent, security deposit and credit

For those who are new to California than you may have not heard about properties that have Mello Roos before.  We commonly see Mello Roos associated with new construction communities where some of the extra building cost fees are passed on to the homeowner.  The easiest way to explain this extra fee is to look at the various costs when building a a brand new neighborhood.  Often times there will be a cost to put in sidewalks, pave streets, put in lamp posts above the streets, etc as those costs can really add up.  In order for the builder to avoid having to pay these costs a Mello Roos bond is often set up to pass on these costs to the new owners of the properties that will be living there.  These are typically from 25 to 30 years as it almost acts like

One of the best places to find affordable rental prices is at the Shore Crest complex in Huntington Beach. We did a quick search to see what rental values have looked like in the past year and for the most part many of these rentals are listed below $2,000 a month which is an excellent value if you want to live by the beach.  Looking at previous listings in Shore Crest there have been leases for either one or two bedroom units.  What grabbed our attention in the last week was a newly listed one bedroom rental that is on the market for lease at $1,750 a month.  They are wanting a 12 month lease with an expected move-in date starting after 04/02/21,  As with most rentals in the area the first months rent, credit report and security deposit is required for

Real Estate agents see a lot of the same homes come on the market with many of the homes that have come on the market several times.  What we love to see are homes that rarely come on the market.  A lot of times these homes have never been on the market for a period of 20, 30 and 40 more years and are typically family owned for a period of generations.  We did a quick search and found many homes that had never been on the market before.  These range from penthouse condos like Harbor Bay Club that offer water and sunset views to single family homes in popular neighborhoods like Bolsa Landmark, Goldenwest Estates, Lake Park and Brightwater communities.

If you have ever visited Huntington Beach then you have probably visited the Downtown area of Huntington Beach.  This is where you will find the Huntington Beach Pier and the the boardwalk with a lot of new retail stores and shopping to choose from.  This is also a very popular place to live as you are in the heart of everything and minutes to miles of wide beaches.  Of course, due to the high demand of people wanting to live here it's also one of the most expensive areas of Huntington Beach to buy a home besides the properties located directly on the water in the Huntington Harbour area.  The closer you are located to the beach the real estate prices tend to go higher as with any beach community.  The nice thing about this area is that there is a good

Arguably considered one of the best neighborhoods in Huntington Beach is the Huntington Harbour area.  Located at the very north end of Huntington Beach is a collection of luxury residential homes and condos that are very much sought after no matter if you are looking to buy or lease a home.  Within the area is a collection of 5 islands with many homes offering stunning water front views.  Homes located on the water command a huge premium in price especially if the home comes with it's own private boat slip.  The inventory of these homes is currently very limited with single family homes starting at $5,800 a month with direct water front homes starting at over $15,000 a month.

Some of the key places to look for rentals include the five man made islands

One of the common requests we get from our clients is finding a home that comes with inside laundry.  Of course, for larger homes this a pretty much a common thing to have as many luxury homes even come with their own individual laundry room.  For smaller homes and condos this is a common question as laundry areas can be located in the garage and for residential condos you may find the laundry in the community laundry facility.  In fact, one of the first questions we get from condo buyers is regarding the laundry and having inside laundry is a huge selling feature.  You will sometimes see in condo listings that a unit comes with laundry hookups which often equates to having inside laundry as well.

Probably, the most asked question for those looking to

One of the more popular places to rent a home in the Huntington Beach area is the Seaside Village community.  What makes this neighborhood unique is that it's located in a secure gated community with small lagoon style waters that resides just outside the homes making it feel like a true water front location.  The community itself is relatively small so there are typically not a lot of rental properties on the market at any given time.  Currently there are 3 rental homes available that are all looking for a 12 month lease as we typically don't see any short term rental properties in this neighborhood.

Rental prices currently start at $3,900 a month for a 3 bedroom home with approximately 1,705 square feet of living space.  There are also two other 3
