Owner's Issues / Re: Practicaility of Bi-folds
« Last post by Paris167 on Today at 03:27:18 AM »
I didn't have the option to choose - the home was already structurally built for the bifold doors so I'm getting them. It's nice that way because I don't have to pay extra for them.

I also personally love the indoor outdoor vibe. Especially when entertaining you get more living space to entertain where groups aren't separated indoor vs outdoor. I guessi'll find out how practical it is on a daily basis once I assess the bug situation in OH :)

Irvine Real Estate / Re: Luna at Portola Springs

Public companies' leadership is like musical chair. when one management team leaves another takes over. Ideas and innovation rarely continued to the next generation. New regimes come with ego and rarely build upon the last guys idea. Products suffered as a result by reinventing the wheel. Cal Pac is a privately owned company with the same team in place since it's genesis. It's products get smarter as a result of several decade long refinements. While other companies are all over the map with many levels of product segments and locations I noticed Cal Pac focuses on entry level segment and one product type. The proverb Jack of all trades and master of none is quite true.

From just a product design standpoint Luna delivers the best value for your money if you don't mind Portola Springs.

City Hall / New to TI - And moving to Irvine in 2 weeks!
« Last post by IrvinePeon on Today at 12:19:20 AM »
Hello everyone.

I'll be moving down to Irvine (Portola Springs) with my young family in a couple of weeks. We're from the Bay Area where the weather is cooler and the commute traffic is equally painful. But no more! Looking forward to the beach weather and working-from-home 100%.  ;D

I was looking for broadband internet service. Doesn't look like Verizon FiOS is available in 92618. The next best thing seems to be Cox. Prices seem a bit higher in So Cal. I'm currently paying $61.78 for 50 Mbps with Comcast Cable.  If anyone has any good info, please let me know.

Thanks!

NB exceeded the population limit. Aliso Viejo, RSM, Arcadia and Yorba Linda also made the top 50 list.

Naa - you're probably confusing Sagewood with Rosemist or one of the other ones.  Sagewood still has phases left.  They better or else gasman is going to be upset.  He's waiting for his dream lot in Phase 11!

Damn skippy.  ;D

I think PP sales have slowed down a bit but between March and June they were flying off the shelves.

I bet that once they release the sitemap and/or prelim pricing for the next Fivepoints neighborhood across the street, they will quickly sell what remains in PP. 

People will realize next phase is more condensed with condos and smaller lots.  6k lot is what sold me on PP, very difficult to find in any new Irvine home in my price range.

Owner's Issues / Re: Spiders!

Beware of these pest control companies!  My last house I signed a one-year contract for quarterly maintenance service.  I never received a bill due to bad accounting by the service company.  I'm not even sure if they serviced my house.  If they did it was during the day when I'm not home.  About 18 months after I signed the contract....  I get a collection notice in the mail and a negative mark on my credit report.  Took me 3 or 4 months to resolve the issue.

Irvine Real Estate / Re: Great Park: Richmond American - Birch Trail
« Last post by aquabliss on Yesterday at 11:05:44 PM »
Wow they sell Birch Trail with a driveway?!?  Even if it's a $50k - $60k premium it would be a pretty good deal.

I think they must be building a number of these on Cloudbreak?  If yes then I agree, one of the best locations in PP.  I live very close by and it's nice and quiet here, minus the temporary construction traffic in the mornings.

I believe the 2010 New Home Collection in Woodbury was also 700+ homes.
