Open House Review: 56 Shade Tree

Aug 30th, 2012 by SMS 

Canyon’s Edge Executive Retreat        56 Shade Tree $974,900                 

Scooting along Shady Canyon Drive, the view is all open wilderness, just minutes  from Orange County’s urban nest of beaches and freeways.  I was headed to Canyon’s Edge in Turtle Ridge, a gated community that sits next to the wilderness, and I was remembering visiting Quail Hill awhile ago. Both areas offer premium locations,  delivering a big helping of the outdoors with easy access to all of the urban connections.

It’s a lifestyle worth considering.  Spend the afternoon hiking, practically in your own backyard, and then head off for the next trip, or an evening out with the 73 Freeway and Orange County Airport nearby.

Summer and Spanish Lace

Aug 27th, 2012 by Cubic Zirconia 

Summer of 2012 was supposed to be the legendary bottom of Irvine Real Estate prices. But thanks to low inventory, Irvine home owners can breathe easy and continue to list their properties for exorbitant prices. The safest city just got voted as the sixth best place to live in the country! That might add a premium to the premium we are already paying to live in the safest city with the best school district. Currently there are only 399 homes in Irvine for sale, not including shadow inventory. That’s a huge drop from the 1200+ in July 2007, and the lowest in the past five years.

Every village in Irvine saw its bottom at a different time since 2008, and so far all the markets that crashed since the “Great Housing Depression” have rebound. Woodbury was another hard hit market in Irvine, many houses still under construction, some sold for buyers with creative financing, at risk of being foreclosed or sold short. The Great Park that was supposed to be the crowning glory of Irvine became an illusion, so much so that the surveys asked “do you think Great Park will be built in your lifetime”.

Today we will see if Woodbury has rebound from its lows, or has reached a new bottom.
