WELCOME TO BEACH CITIES LUXURY HOMES MAGAZINE. OUR INTENTION IS TO PROVIDE CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY WITH THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHY & TOOLS AVAILABLE TO SHOWCASE THE GREAT PROPERTIES WE REPRESENT HERE IN THE CALIFORNIA RIVIERA. Beach Cities Luxury Homes is a specialist luxury real estate company with emphasis on selling the best properties along the beach cities here in Orange County, California. With 10 plus years experience we understand the complex nuances in selling luxury beach properties. Currently we are seeing two different markets here in Orange County. There is a very aggressive & competitive market for the bank owned and foreclosure homes that are priced well below market value. It is not unusual to have multiple bids on these properties. We also have a normal selling market where non-foreclosure homes are taking 4-6 months to sell. It’s an exciting time in real estate! Please feel free to contact our office with any questions regarding the best strategies for buying & selling beach properties. Explanation on short sales, foreclosures & bank owned properties will save you time and a lot of money! Best Regards,
