Today, I'd like to post a list of all closed sales in Irvine from 12/29/2011 to 1/4/2012. As a kid, I remember reading the newspaper to see what homes in town sold recently – yes, I've been interested in RE for far too long. Over the past few years, I've seen some sites that have posted weekly sales and I think I recall Erika Chavez's blog at the OC Register also doing so a while back. When reading these lists of addresses and prices of sold homes, I'm always wondering what neighborhood the home belongs to or how many bedrooms it has or how many square feet it has. All the data is out there but it is a challenge presenting it in a helpful way. I have some grand ideas on how I want to address that in the future.
But for now, I've compiled the list with a few columns I find helpful. The list is ordered by Area (MLS term that kinda sorta is like a village but not really) and then by the Date Sold. I've tried to clean up some data such as incorrect tract or area names. Redfin offers an awesome feature where they let you view the listing information for homes that have sold – most other sites do not provide this. So, I've added Redfin links to the sold properties so you can easily get even more detailed data on one of these sold homes. Instead of reading 123 Main St sold for $450,000 on 12/12/2011, you'll get a few columns of more info and a link to the actual listing on Redfin. Hope you think it is helpful – it sure was tedious! 😉

Several of these are new homes – any ideas which?
Are you familiar with any of these homes or neighborhoods? OC Fliptrack ring a bell?
How much have they dropped from the peak?
Would you like to see a Buy versus Rent post on one of these properties?
