Two Ways to Go on Trovita

Apr 24th, 2012 by nilam 

Today's post was written by SMS.  Let us know what you think!

Houses can be raw material ready for shaping OR a finished project just waiting for the new owners to unpack and enjoy.   On Sunday I looked at two single family homes in Canyon Creek and found a bit of both.

The first at 3 Trovita, is very desirable raw material, almost totally original, and meticulous.  As you enter and encounter snowy white carpet, a discreet sign requests that you remove your shoes. 

Across the street, the second house at 6 Trovita offers an estimated $250,000 in upgrades and quite a bit of extra sizzle.

What Would $750,000 buy in Irvine?

Apr 23rd, 2012 by Cubic Zirconia 

Five different villages, five different floor plans. But all of the properties I am comparing today are within the price range of $740,000 to $760,000. Without analyzing each micro-market’s performance over the decade, or the age of the home and school districts, lets’ see how much house can we afford in each village. All of them are standard sales.

Is Irvine Housing a Buyers’ or Sellers’ Market?

Apr 18th, 2012 by Sylvia Walker 

The following post gives more information to help answer the question that Cubiz Zirconia asked in Monday's post: Is it time for Irvine home prices to rebound?

Trulia came out with a report recently that said buying a home was a better deal than renting in many U.S. locations, including the OC.

Trulia Rent vs Buy Chart

Does this mean that Irvine has transitioned from a buyers’ to a sellers’ market?
