Irvine Model Homes For Sale

Posted by Sam Smith on Tuesday, July 30th, 2019 at 10:57am.

Irvine is a true gem for those looking for a current or former model home listed for sale.  One of the reasons for this is that there always seems to be brand new construction neighborhoods being constructed all of the time.  Each neighborhood often has 3 model homes that have been highly upgraded to show off the potential for what a buyer can buy in that particular neighborhood. These properties are initially not offered for sale since the builder is trying to sell all of the other homes in the community first before they even think of selling some of the models.  Of course, once the neighborhood is close to being sold out the model homes are often released out to the public for sale.  Prices for these homes will vary a lot and depends on how motivated the builder is to get them off their books.  For previous model homes it's up to the seller to see how motivated they are to sell their home.

Some of the best places to currently look for model homes includes the Laguna Altura, Orchard Hills, Altair, Great Park, Cypress Village and Portola Springs neighborhoods.  By far, Orchard Hills seems to have the largest inventory of model homes currently for sale and is considered one of the top gated communities here in Irvine.  The community has a lot of amenities that include use of multiple swimming pools, basketball and tennis courts,   There are a lot of hiking trails and parks within this area and it's within close proximity to the Orchard Hills shopping center area.

One thing to keep in mind when looking to purchase a model home is to take in consideration all of the upgrades that have been done to the home.  These homes are often priced at a premium due to the large number of upgrades.  We have seen some clients purchase these homes and then completely remodel them which often times doesn't make a whole lot of sense.  You are often paying a premium for these upgrades so take this into consideration when purchasing a model home.
