We had a client contact requesting more info on how a lease option would work on a rental property that she had found.  We explained to her that there are several moving parts to doing a lease option as putting a deal together like this takes a lot of negotiations on several fronts.  First, we explained that we need to find out if the owner is willing to sell the home even though the home is only listed for lease.  Once we found out that the seller would entertain an offer to purchase it we asked if he would be willing to do a lease first with an option to buy it within a 12 month period.  The owner said that they would agree to this depending on the purchase price of the home.  Since the property is not listed for sale this is a negotiable number that

One of my favorite buildings near the Oceanside Pier area to capture some great ocean views is the Pacifica Del Mar complex located at 152 S Pacific Street.  These six residential condos located here are technically not located right on the beach as they are located on the across the street from the Oceanside Tyson Street Park area that provides very nice and direct ocean views.  The location is just a several block radius south from the Oceanside Pier area with condos here rarely coming on the market for sale.  It just so happens that there are currently 2 condos listed for sale here listed for $1,750,000 and $1,795,000. Both of these units have the identical square footage but one is listed as a two bedroom while the other one is listed as a 3 bedroom
