Parenting / BEST "SLEEP-AWAY" CAMPS FOR KIDS IN SOCAL.
« Last post by ochomes on Today at 10:59:21 AM »
I had a client that relocate to OC, purchase a house through me and ask me for a list of the best Summer Camps for kids.  They weren't looking for the day camps but the "going away for camp" experiences since both of the parents work technology jobs and don't have the luxury of taking time off.

Where is this house located? Greenwood next to Costco?  But  Built in 2010? 

First sold for profit of more than $500K in 2 months and now being sold for a loss more than $500K?

Looks like funny math to me.

O.C. Real Estate / Re: Investing in rental properties OC or IE ?
« Last post by ochomes on Today at 10:40:46 AM »
thanks , good info. OC areas I am looking at is Cypress, Fullerton, Yorba Linda, Brea and IE areas I am looking at is mostly Riverside city.

On the topic of demand from millennials over next decade - I would think more inventory will be coming to market over time as baby boomers sell their houses and move to senior housing which may balance the demand(from millennials)/supply (from baby boomers), thoughts?

Very good topic.  One things that you don't see being spoken about are the buying trends of millennials, whats important to them and how to position yourself to invest accordingly.  A client/friend of mine restores historical buildings in the venice areas and all the tech-companies are choosing the older buildings rather than the brand new glass towers built for them. 

Getting back to your original question on investments.  OC's values tend to climb faster from low to higher markets.  Also in a market fall-thru like we saw in 2008, the dip tends to not nearly go as low in the OC as compared to Riverside.  However with that being said, one thing that never goes down in an up or down market are the prices of rent. 

I have a handful of clients looking at apartments right now, in cost vs rents, they are tending to like Riverside.  Have more questions, feel free to reach out.

I have a client that is looking for an off-market property for a single family home.  Anyone in this great community selling?  Their budget is the low $900,000's, they like upgraded homes and are flexible for a lease-back.

There is a 75" for $1799 with no sales tax at Frys (http://images.frys.com/art/email/052817_sun258tgb/sun_web.html?fb). Maybe worth checking in store the model.

You need Sunday's promo code for it.

That section of homes along the 5 between Jeffrey and Culver seems very unlucky--one shooting and now an armed robbery. No bueno!

Irvine woman robbed by armed man in her own home, police say
By CHRIS HAIRE | chaire@scng.com | Orange County Register
PUBLISHED: May 27, 2017 at 3:46 pm | UPDATED: May 27, 2017 at 7:23 pm
IRVINE  A 62-year-old Irvine woman was robbed at gunpoint in her own home Saturday morning – “immediately” after returning from a stroll around her neighborhood, police said.

The woman returned from her walk at about 9:35 a.m., and as soon as she went inside, a man described as in his mid-20s entered the house in the 600 block of Hayes Street through an unlocked door, said spokeswoman Kim Mohr of the Irvine Police Department.

The armed man demanded cash and jewelry.

He made off with gold jewelry and $300, Mohr said. He fled in an unknown direction and has not been found.

The woman was not injured.

The suspect was last seen wearing a black-and-red sweater and black pants.

The woman, Mohr said, told police that she thinks the suspect followed her home from her walk.

Anyone with information, can call police at 949-724-7138.

Around Town / Re: Homeless Camp at the Library
« Last post by spootieho on Today at 01:55:02 AM »
Drove by it today and saw a bunch of tents.  That kinda sucks.  There are more and more homeless moving into the Tustin area, it seems.  Usually I only see dozen or so in Tustin, and they are all familiar to me.  Today I saw a lot more and didn't recognize any of them.

Instant death, but I have the urge.
