Strand Market Update: Year-over-year Strand Sales Continues to Build Momentum

Strand at Headlands total sales topped $150 million in 2016 and have exceeded $82 million in the first seven months of 2017. Orange County’s final, and newest oceanfront community, The Strand at Headlands, continues to enjoy record sales — a recent oceanfront homesite recently closed escrow at $12 million followed by another oceanfront Strand property that sold for just under $12 million.
With only eight custom homesites remaining at The Strand, its record-breaking sales can be attributed to the law supply and demand — custom homesites outside The Strand in oceanfront private gated communities in Dana Point and Laguna Beach are almost nonexistent.
Building a custom beach home in The Strand’s gate guarded community comes with the added benefit of complete architectural freedom to build the home of your dreams and, among other benefits, all Coastal Commission permits in place, expediting the overall permit process.
Finally, one of the other reasons that The Strand has become Orange County’s most sought after beachfront neighborhoods is the access Strand owners have to its private, Beach Club with its pool/spa, lounge and fitness center providing every owner an oceanfront lifestyle. For a current list of all Strand sales and available homesites and homes go to http://strandrealtyoc.com
