People always ask me this question. There are three logical reasons why prices could be lower in Laguna Woods Village (see below) but none of them are because the village is ‘sub-pare’ in anyway. My mom lived here for 20 years and I have seen that it’s a wonderful community filled with numerous amenities and genuinely nice people. Common areas are expansive, landscaping is lush, and homes are spaced a lot farther apart than they are in some of these ‘newer’ communities.
Reason #1: Real Estate experts believe the prices are lower because Laguna Woods Village is a 55+ “senior” community and the fact that there are 12,000 homes in Laguna Woods. When someone dies, the kids can’t move in, so they must sell the home! There is so much more supply than demand. There “loss” is your gain.
