  1. Do you want to consider a Newport Beach condo? Living in a condo typically means there are shared walls between the condos. In many condo developments there are community pools, spa. Some have a work out area. Write down what is important to you with the list of amenities and make sure those are included in your search.
  2. Do you want to live at or near the beach? Keep in mind that living closer to the Coast, the lots are much smaller.  Many homes do have outside living.

If you enjoy surfing, running, jogging or walking your dog along the beach, this is a wonderful lifestyle.

  4. Do you need a yard? Do you have pets?
  5. Does the neighborhood you prefer have sidewalks? How about street lights? These are also important considerations.
