For the last couple of years Beach activity was stale. We would get a couple of spectacular sales but on average that market was lagging. Not Any More! this year the pace of homes sold has more than doubled and prices have soared. On average the Median Price for a Malibu beach house has gone from $5,175,000 last year to about $8,875,000 so far this year. That is about a 70% jump UP!

Take a look at this gorgeous listing on Escondido Beach. One of may favorites! it’s on a super sandy beach that is open all the way to Point Dume, so you can enjoy those long walks watching the waves or dolphins, and even stop by for a drink at Paradise Cove Cafe on your way to the tide pools or surf points on Point Dume.

For more details on this or any other Malibu beach house call or email me. Id be happy to help.

While last year we saw property sales on the land side of Malibu concentrated in the under $2 million dollar range. This year so far sales are tilted towards the higher priced properties. The price range that has been more popular so far this year is in the $3 million to $5 million dollar range, with sales over one and a half times more than last year in this same bracket. On the $2 million to $3 million dollar range, sales increased by 50% so far this year compared to the same period last year and in the over $5 million dollar range sales increased 6 fold more than last year in this price bracket.

All indicates that the winds have finally shifted towards the super luxury properties in Malibu with little activity in the lower brackets. This may be because offerings are mostly concentrated in the higher brackets. While there are 180 properties on the landside for sale in Malibu today, only 37 are priced under $2,000,000 dollars. with 55 priced over $5,000,000 dollars and 143 priced over $2,000,000. It is clearly the exception to find a property under $1,000,000. Today there are only 3!

Notable among the sales this year are:

Sorry, but we couldn't find any results in the MLS that match the specified search criteria.

Home Buying Calculus Different For Investors/Homeowners http://www.livingmalibu.com/home-buying-calculus-different-for-investorshomeowners/ http://www.livingmalibu.com/home-buying-calculus-different-for-investorshomeowners/#comments Thu, 19 Sep 2013 22:20:04 +0000 ritasimpson http://www.livingmalibu.com/?p=2861

You buy a property in Malibu because you want to live here or have your family grow up here or you just MUST have a Malibu home…

The house-owning math for investors is 180 degrees from the rest of us who are buying a house to live in. Today’s article in the WSJ, gives a great analysis.

Many so-called “investors” come to Malibu wanting to invest in property here, but when they put out the calculator it usually does not pencil out. This is because there is a difference between buying to enjoy or raise a family or as a  an achievement gift to oneself and  family in celebration of all our efforts. Both are valid and desirable but one must know the difference.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that your home is NOT an investment property. Investment properties have cash flow and pay for themselves. Homes don’t; Homeowners pay for them.

Corporate property investors usually buy with cash. Their acquisition and maintenance expenses are paid by the rental income, and they are taxed only on the difference between their revenue and expenses. There are other Real Estate Tax , including depreciation that enhance cash flow but are unavailable to individuals. Losses can be carried over year after year and used to offset profits elsewhere. And Real Estate Investors have a leg up even on stock investors because hey can avoid capita gains taxes completely if they buy and sell “in Kind” properties. Last but not least, property investors can buy and sell without incurring the cost of moving because they don’t live in their investments.

By contrast Homeowners usually borrow money to buy their homes so even with very low-interest rates the cost of the home by the end of the 30 year mortgage would have climbed to 70% or more over the purchase price! in addition the mortgage tax deduction is only significantly higher than the standard deduction available to all taxpayers in the very high-end areas.

So if you want to live in Malibu and enjoy the Malibu lifestyle, put aside the investment calculus, and make peace with the fact that this is a gift for your soul and your families well being. This is why to come to Malibu
