Thanks for asking this question on Trulia. I see that you posted this quite a while ago, but here is a recent update anyway.
Just to give you some year over year stats. These are the numbers between April and and June 2014 as compared to that same period in 2013 (the difference is shown in the percentages):
New Listings 193: -8,3%
Average Active price $5,100,000: +4,4%
Average Sales Price $2,600,000: +13,3%
Median List Price $2,700,000: +0,7%
Median Sales Price $1,800,000: +17,7%
As you can see listings are down a little bit as compared to a year ago. In my opinion only about 20% of homes is really priced to sell.
The average price per square foot hovers around $1,100 in Laguna.
New Listings 201: +6,9%
Average Active price $4,300,000: -6,1%
Average Sales Price $2,100,000: +11,1%
Median List Price $3,000,000: -7,8%
Median Sales Price $1,740,000: +7,8%
The price per square foot here is about $700, which is quite a bit lower than the price per SF in Laguna Beach. But homes are selling a little faster in La Jolla.
I could give you some more updated states for the entire Orange County/ San Diego area if you like. Just shoot me an e-mail or give me a call and I can get you the report right away. It is pretty useful information if you are looking to buy or invest. If you have any additional questions, I personally specialize in the Laguna Beach/ South Orange County area. If you would like some more info about San Diego, I can certainly recommend a few great agents down there.
Have a great day!

Interest rates remain good, however the loans are still difficult to get so while it's a seller's market, cash buyers are in a good negotiation position.
