It's not the age of the house, it's the style, layout, and condition. There are certain eras that are more desirable, and a completely remodeled 50 yr old house is likely going to be more appealing than a 20 year old one in original condition. You should work with your agent and a contractor to figure out values and go from there. ... more

Why not consider any of the hotels....most landlords prefer longer leases.

I have 3 properties that could possibly work for you within your price range & size requirements. There could be more possibilities but I won't know until I can talk to you some more over the phone or through email, as some owners with homes on the market may have the ability to offer this option to you, but they're not stating this within the MLS & would be on a case by case basis.

Shoot me an email directly if you'd like to talk to me some more. I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine.

Hello DJ,

There is a large number of options in the Corona del Mar/Newport Beach area many of which are ideal for someone that is looking for a vacation home. These homes will vary significantly in terms of location, proximity to the ocean, price, and amenities.

If you would like to e-mail me some information on the type of property you are looking for I would be happy to e-mail you back with some properties in the area that match up with what you are looking for.

I used to live in that area....traffic can he horrific at ALL hours ofthe day. (All it takes is one shoe in the road!) It would be in your best interest to get a local Realtor to represent you. The seller pays the commission...and your agent will most likely be able to save ou even more $$$...and protect your interests!

As far as prices going down, it's hard to predict. California real estate is a great should be fine if you're holding if for 5 years. And even if you break even on price when you sell it, youwill still have saved thousands of dollars in taxes over that 5 years. It's a great time to buy. Good luck!d

Bruce Lynn answered:
My MLS sheets print out automatically six months of sales. If that is true for you, take the number of comparable sales and divide by 6, then divide the number of comparable active listings by that number. That of course assumes the past is an excellent predictor of the future. For me this is a guide, but not hard fact. For example in my market sales are slower in the winter than they are in the summer. So if a homeowner calls me in April and I look at this calculation it will likely be off. ... more
