Are you looking for a deal?  196 Monarch Bay was originally listed at $4,695,000 and has just been reduced over 50% off, now only $2,249,000.  This is your opportunity to steal this newly constructed custom home located in oceanfront community of Monarch Bay in Monarch Beach, CA.  Are you tired of hearing about all those amazing deals that you missed? Don’t let this one get away because it will be open to view Wednesday, October 27 from 10am-1pm and Thursday, October 28th from 10am-1pm.

 This home is inspired by the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach and I call it the “Mini Montage” house.  We have video of the home when it was professionally staged as well several photos.  If you are not able to make it by the open house just contact me and I will send you the video link and photos.

If you are looking for a split level home with top of the line upgrades, 4 bedrooms, office and bonus room along with a large private corner lot perfect for entertaining this is the home for you.  When you purchase a home in Exclusive 24HR guard gated oceanfront community you become a member to the exclusive Monarch Bay Beach Club. Please join me at the Monarch Bay Beach Club so you can experience the oceanfront club and restaurant managed by the St. Regis Resort.  Several members of the Beach Club, like myself, also belong to the 5 Star St. RegisResort and Spa. If you would like membership information and a list of benefits please contact me and I will provide you with a membership package.  There are several benefits included with St. Regis Resort Membership such as 20% off food and beverage and spa treatments, etc. The gym is never crowded, I think I have only seen 3 people in there at the same time.  The several fitness classes, Yoga and Beach Boot Camp, are included in the St. RegisMembership.  You also get full use of all the pools and spas. It is like you are a guest of the St. Regis Resort and if you want to stay just book a room with your membership rate.  Just imagine making a lifestyle change, moving and living in this resort community.

The Monarch Bay Beach Club is also fun for families.  They have several activities for the children including every Friday is movie night. Just bring yourself down to the beach because the club provides the beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, toys, buckets and shovels. It is also a great beach if you are into water sports such as Stand Up Paddle(SUP) or boogie boarding.  I love boogie boarding at the beach club because they don’t have rocks like several areas in local beaches.  The Beach Club also offers fire pits that members may reserve along with private cooks and bartenders so you never have to lift a finger. Yes, recommend taking a private tour of the Monarch Bay Beach Club and community.

If you are looking for a home in the Laguna Beach area, there are simply some magnificent buys going on right now. Just three years ago, one million dollars couldn’t buy you a shack, but now you can get some really great houses and condos for a portion of that or less! And, thanks to the faltering economy, there are many programs available that can help you get into the home of your dreams, including the first time home buyer program.

Depending on the type of program you end up going with, the definition of “first time buyer” is pretty loose. In some cases, it just means that you have not been the primary buyer of a home in the past three years. How many homes you bought before that period of time doesn’t even matter! So, if you don’t think that you would qualify for a first time home buyer program, then think again.

There are some rules that do apply for most government backed or funded programs and that is that the home must be your primary residence and not an investment property. With most first time home buyer programs, your credit must be clear of major blemishes and should be 600 or above, and you should be prepared to put at least five percent down on the mortgage (although this may be subject to change).

Overall though, there are many opportunities in this area to utilize these types of programs in a time when property prices are at a ten-year low, and interest rates are low, too. There has never been a better time to buy property in southern California, and if you had told someone just a few years ago that the government would be promoting home ownership in this region due to depressed prices, they just wouldn’t believe you!
