Nikhil, another important point to be aware of. The builiding process is very long. Normally one to two years for approval depending on the size and type home you want to build. Then the actual building could take another four to six months. If you need a local architect I will be happy to referr you to one.

Mc Reynoldls is a great area for the adventurous. Low density mostly rural and views but little flat land.

You need to have about $800,000 or more in your budget to go through the building process the Coastal Commission and the County of Los Angeles.

You will have to put in a well, and bring in electric to the site. This depends on how far you are from the roads or current locations for electric. You will have to widen roads and get geological and foundation deigns cost before you buy. It is not for the weak of heart.

I have been certified by the Superior court County of Los Angeles as an "Expert Witness" in all real estate matter it you have questions?

Great info, Tom. Are you comments specific to the McReynolds area, or are you talking about all of malibu and/or pacific palisades?

Very helpful. Thanks.
