Real Estate Density in Laguna Niguel

Real Estate Density in Laguna Niguel

No I am not speaking of the beginner RealtorĀ®. I am speaking of population Density, people per square mile. Believe it or not, Orange County is one of the most densely populated areas in the country behind New York City and Los Angeles. In the past Orange County residents could make money by continually purchasing new- build homes. Now that land is so scarce more of us will be remodeling. In fact I am seeing a wider spread between resale homes that are original and those that have been refurbished. That is why flips are so popular even if the upgrades are inexpensive. This week I drove my daughter across country to grad school and was reminded just how large the United States land mass really is. Once out of the Los Angeles basin, and with the exception of Denver, the density is extremely low. One hour out of Chicago all one sees are massive corn fields.

Real Estate Variety in Laguna Niguel

Laguna Niguel boasts a variety of real estate lifestyles, from entry-level homes to high-end luxury estates; from one bedroom condos to panoramic ocean-view properties. Sorry, there are no horse properties or high rises. See Nellie Gail for the horse properties and check out Irvine for high rise living if that floats your boat.

For those who would rather downsize and not have the maintenance, Laguna Niguel has many condo and townhome complexes at reasonable prices. Along both sides of well known Laguna Niguel Country Club one can purchase a condo with a two-car garage and watch the golfers from the balcony. Some buyers like the secure feeling of a guard- gated community. There are quite a few in Laguna Niguel. Most guard-gated communities are manned 24 hours a day and record the license plate of any visitors. Some of my clients would rather live in ungated tracts, though, so friends can visit without screening. Once you have lived in a home with a panoramic view like I have, you become spoiled and Laguna Niguel has plenty to spoil you with. If you are new to the area you...
