Balboa Island Real Estate by Category

Off- Market Opportunities

In this competitive real estate market on Balboa Island, a lot of properties get sold prior to being listed on the MLS. Smart buyers are not waiting for a home to hit the market and then compete with all of the other home buyers. Instead, they are seeking out off-market opportunities. These are homeowners that have said they are interested in selling if they got a certain price or plan on bring the home on the market in the future (once a tenant moves out, divorce is finalized, or they locate their next property). It could be a number of things. Working with a local realtor that specializes in Balboa Island is critical, when it comes to off-market options.

Location! Location! Location!

This frequently mentioned “location, location, location” is hands-down the most critical component when buying a home and even more so when buying a home on Balboa Island. Obviously the location is critical in any community, but on Balboa Island there are numerous things to consider that most out of area buyers are not aware of. There is nothing worse than purchasing a home on the island, only to realize after you move in that there are some critical flaws with your location. Location is what you are buying as it is the one thing you cannot change. Everything else can be changed!

A realtor like myself, that knows Balboa Island from a resident’s perspective can give you the inside information on what you will experience based on location. What are some examples? Balboa Island is unique to every other community in Newport Beach. The island is a tourist destination. There are roughly 6,000 people on the island. Only 40% of the island is full time residents! This means 60% of the homes are vacation rentals or vacation homes for owners that have a primary residence out of the area. Vacation rentals are essentially motels. Depending on your use of the property, this type of ownership use might matter to you.

When it comes to location, tourists and residents flock to Marine Ave for dining and shopping. If you live on Grand Canal on the big island or the west side of Onyx, you should consider the alley traffic that delivers to all of the local businesses on Marine Ave.  Onyx Ave in general will have a lot of traffic, especially in the 200 block as residents use that to drive off the island quicker than being stuck on marine avenue. If you want to be close to the amenities of Marine Ave but not have issues with traffic and street parking, than you might consider paying a slight premium for a home on the little island.

On the big island, some streets are wider than others. Narrow streets can make it a bit more difficult to parallel park and drive safely.  At the end of the big island you can find parking with ease, but you are 1 mile from Marine Ave, so if you want to grab a Starbucks or visit the Village Inn, you’ll want to consider the time to walk, bike or purchase a golf cart. If you are buying in the 100 block of Agate, you or the 200 and 300 blocks of Marine, you will want to consider the exhaust that comes from cars waiting for the ferry of coming on and off the island.

If you wantBalboa Island Home For Sale Real Estate Waterfront Grand Canal Bayfront Water View Dock a water view or to buy for a boat location in the harbor, you will want to consider the big differences between properties on the North and South Bay Front. South Bay Front Sidewalks from Agate to Marine Avenue are going to have much more foot traffic than anywhere on the bay-front. At the same time, this South Bayfront is the most central location to the harbor and provides the most expansive water views and views of the Harbor Pavilion, Ferris Wheel, and Sunsets. North Bayfront is going to have much less vessel traffic. You will experience sunrises rather than sunsets and you have the wonderful Ruby beach…  There are so many things to consider when it comes to the location of a home on Balboa Island. Let me know what is important to you and I can make sure you end up where you want to be!
