The first google results for landfill were things like "living within 2 miles of landfill equivalent to smoking while pregnant".


Was that quote from someone named YellowFever?

:)

 Could be,  the landfill research was how I discovered this forum  ;D

Yeah not sure how much the two mile resale effect would be, since like socal OCLuvr said that hits a ton of villages, but .5 and no resale history scared me out of brisa specifically.

Seems like somebody is talking to himself 😄. Let me call IHO that YF is back 😄. For concerns regarding resale, people should look at LR and PS1 price appreciation over period of last 5 years. LR had close to 50% and PS1 had 35-40% price appreciation.

So it sounds like the landfill isn't a huge concern then :) that is a bit of a relief, will keep eyes out in PS.

Sorry to derail the baker ranch thread  ;)

Sad I missed this thread. As the local resident BR booster I didn’t properly defend against the Irvine mob. Sigh.

Anyway Baker Ranch is great. We bought 4 years ago and sold, made 25% and rolled it over into a larger BR house.

Neighbor composition is very similar to Irvine now. When we first bought it was a mix of Foothill Ranch-ish and ex Irvine residents. New neighborhood is largely like most new Irvine neighborhoods (foreign cash buyers it seems). We sold our place to an all cash buyer. The resale market is there.

The jail, Alton, meh are non issues. No one cares about it when it comes to resale - trust me, I actually went through selling.

Neighborhood has a good feel. A lot of families and a good mix of the old and new folks. The Baker Ranch shopping center has a good middle eastern place and a good Asian place. There’s a lot of new openings in the Foothill Ranch centers they are catering to new demographics. Halves is a great KBBQ/shabu place and there’s a lot of other local places you wouldn’t think of.

No mello Roos are awesome. Way better value.

No plume or landfill aromas.

If you want new and under 800k, I think it’s the best option.

Thanks for the insight eclipxe.  Still haven't pulled out of The Rowe deposit. Good to hear some positive thoughts on the area.

Feel free to message me if you want to know more.

Seriously, this is Talk Irvine and people talk a lot of crap for fun - gotta take most of it tongue in cheek. After living in Irvine (and loving it) for a while, trust me when I say BR is pretty much the same, but you get more house for less. The trade offs you make for BR value are not nearly like the trade offs you make for other non-Irvine options. Irvine is clearly Tier 1 (and you pay for it), but for everyday things that really matter, BR is close enough. Seriously.

Let’s be careful not to blanket this. Not all of PS1 appreciated 35-40% in the last 5 years.  And certainly not the attached stuff.

Attached stuff doesn't appreciate that much anyways--except one or two exceptions.

Irvine is a beige Volvo - boring, unimaginative, overpriced... but with a good reputation for safety.

I liked BR very much especially the SFR ones. I however ended up with another Irvine home this time.
Just couldn't get rid of the efficiency provided for our current status. Irvine indeed is a planned and branded community for families.

BTW, I personally think BTB is inv0ke is YellowFever.
