I've bought some but not in the past 13 months. The pickings are small, the hedge funds and wall street guys wearing hoodies swoop them up. Track notice of defaults, go look at the houses and keep cell phone images in folders. You attend the auction with a number of cashier's checks in different dollar amounts. You are buying without full title insurance. There may be tenants in the property or all kinds of adventures ... more

Hello Lisa,

Call me or email me the address and i will provide you with the information. It's that easy.

As for buying a foreclosed home, once you we find the home, i will help you with making an offer and negotiating with the lender and or REO Broker. If you do not have a specific property in mind and just need a list of foreclosed / Short Sale homes? email or call me with the area.

It looks live you have asked two separate questions. The first being what is the best area in Newport Beach for investing in beach front homes.

If you are looking at it for investment purposes, the best area is along the Peninsula. These homes can be rented as weekly summer rentals for good prices, and can be rented as winter rentals to local college students. The area along Seashore between 36th and 58th offers a lot of multi unit properties that might be perfect for beach front investment properties.

Your second question of the most expensive properties, does not seem related to the income property question. If you could you clarify this, I would be happy to respond.

Hi John,

I don't like to give out names on the internet, but if you want to shoot me an email...I can talk about the current owner and other public information.

I can say that the property is not showing that there is a notice of default. The last owner purchased this in 2005 for $2.3 million and they owe $2,010,000 to Countrywide in first and second loans. The last listing I see for it expired in September and they had it listed at $1,995,000 and at that time they said it was in default. So perhaps they "cured" the loan...

Hope this helps.
