One of the more popular gated communities in the Irvine area is the Hidden Canyon community in Irvine.  Over the last 4 years we have seen over 50 homes sold often for prices over $3 to $4 million dollars.  What makes this community unique is it's private and remote location in the Laguna Altura area that is set off from other communities but still close enough to be within a short driving distance to local grocery stores, restaurants and some really great shopping.  The floor plans are very well thought out with large square footages that often showcase large rooms with vaulted ceilings and outdoor entertainment spaces with many owners installing private pools and spas.  If you are thinking about doing a quick drive through of this community make sure to

One of the hottest communities in the Irvine area has recently been the Laguna Altura area.  There seems to be a big buyer demand for homes in this community that are priced under $1.5 million dollars.  As you probably know, inventory throughout the Irvine area has been very limited with only a few number of homes coming on to the market compared with the large buyer demand that we are currently seeing.  This is especially true for single family homes priced under $1 million dollars which seems to be one of the most sought after requests that we have been getting.  We commonly see homes in this price range in the Northwood, El Camino Real, Oak Creek, University Park, Woodbridge and Walnut areas.  Many of these are homes are selling after being on the

The city of Irvine has several neighborhoods that offer luxury rentals for those looking for an upscale home in a premier neighborhood.  When we talk about luxury we are doing a search for rentals in the Irvine area that are over $10,000 for per month. The large majority of these homes are long term leases where the owners of the properties are asking for a length of a lease for at least 12 months or more.  Some of these properties have negotiable or month-to-month lease terms so we always recommend checking with a local real estate agent to see which properties offer these kind of lease terms.  There are several neighborhoods where we see luxury rentals which are described here.

The most prestigious place to find a luxury rental is in the Shady Canyon

As real estate prices continue to go up in Southern California it's getting harder to find a home under the $500,000 price point.  There are still several properties that are on the market for sale that can still be purchased in this range if you know where to look. One of the most requested and most affordable places to buy in Irvine is the Watermarke complex.  These are residential condos that feature many one bedrooms condos in the mid $400,000 range.  I'm still surprised how affordable these condos are considering all of the amenities that come with living here that include 3 community pools, fitness center, tennis courts, concierge services, etc.  The location is really great too with a short distance to the 405 freeway and the John Wayne Airport.

One of the common features that agents have been using in Northern California is sharing info on what properties that have that will be coming on the market.  This was a section on the Multiple Listing Service that was private and not made aware to the general public.  What they found out was that many homes were being sold before they even came on the market.  Agents would be working with clients that were looking for a specific type of property and were able to find these kinds of homes using this private search.  The type of search has trickled down to our local multiple listing service here in Southern California which is starting to impact the makeup of homes that are available in any given city.  For Irvine, the low inventory of homes has got a

Irvine for the most part doesn't have income properties that many beach communicates will have like duplex, triplex and four-plex units.  There are sill a lot of investment opportunities in Irvine if you know where to look.  With the rise of vacation rental websites like Airbnb and VRBO many Irvine home owners have decided to make their homes available for short term rentals.  This is especially magnified with COVID19 as many California residents are not to travel long distances and instead are electing to do shorter vacations and stay at designated vacation rental homes.  We have seen a huge spike in clients wanting to stay in rental homes for short periods of times all throughout Southern California including Irvine.  It's worth mentioning that many
