Temperatures are heating up across the state right now, which has many of us longing for one thing: beach time!
Earlier this month we spotlighted some of our favorite luxury beach homes currently for sale in California. Now Coldwell Banker Previews International® is joining the beach party with its most recent edition of Previews Inside Out.
According to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2015 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey, 40% of vacation buyers bought a home in a beach area in 2014, Previews® reports.
While beach houses are clearly one hot commodity, not all of them come with hot price tags and there are plenty of good beach bargains to be found.
To prove this point, Previews® sought out eight extraordinary beach buys currently marketed by the Coldwell Banker Previews International® luxury marketing program and two California homes made the list – a modern masterpiece in Oxnard and a relaxed seaside escape in Laguna Beach.
