Funny how morekaos doesn't mention Brazil anymore.

Where was I mentioning Brazil to begin with?

Sorry… I mix you and qwerty up when it comes to Covid cherry picking.

And how more new communities can we see in irvine? I guess the ones in Portola springs will be last major one right?

Beside the ongoing new tracts in the Portola Springs, OH1(Groves), OH3(Reserve) and GP, there are GP District 5 (over 3000 homes) and OH4, just north of EW with less than 300 homes proposed. 

The GP District 5 will be the last major neighborhood but southern half will be zone to Lake Forest's Saddleback Valley Unified School District.

I post some info on this topic back in 2016,

Once all of the new homes are sold, especially Eastwood, Orchard Hills, and Portola Springs I'd expect prices for resale homes to increase further as there will be less inventory for buyers to pick from.  Heck, if there were no new homes to soak up buyer demand today I believe that Irvine prices would be up another 5-10%.

Don't forget about the IBC (Irvine Business Complex). The area is zoned for 15,000 residential units.

Those look to be mostly apartments and then attached 3-level condos so not really what most buyers are looking for currently.

My wife and I were reviewing the pros and cons of the Fresco Plan 1x. As I mentioned earlier, the floor plan is not ideal but I wanted to get some opinions from the experts on this forum on the floor plan cons that I have noted below. Will these cons be of a big concern if for future resale perspective?
1. Secondary Bathroom and sinks adjacent to Primary bedroom as shown below. (Most floor plans I have seen for SFR have the primary bed room tucked away from secondary bedrooms and bath.)


2. Reduced counter space kitchen:

Ultimately, it will be our decision, but looking to get some feedback from RE professionals.

For point 1, do you know if the builder puts sound insulation in the wall or has an option to do it in the design center? I would be worried if there was no way to get insulation installed ibut with it it should be okay.

builder provides Add on Insulation as an upgrade. This will be put in select locations. I will be selecting that option. I hope that would be sufficient for the expected noise from the secondary bath to the primary bedroom.

Let us know when you leave. So we can buy your home.
I know many people that come back to Cali.
Due to the following: food options, climate, diversity, low pay, etc)

I was there in 99 for a wedding - really really nice. But it's the south. No proximity to ocean. Nashville RE has boomed so it's not exactly cheap. I would still lean NH but you have definitely identified one of the best places to live in the SE US.

Do you think HR will check if people are vaccinated? So this may happen. (an assumption for conversational purposes)

Florida:  natural selection incubator

The Hill Article: Two dead, four hospitalized in COVID-19 outbreak at Florida government building

Two people died and four were hospitalized after a coronavirus outbreak at a government building in Florida.
Manatee County Administrator Scott Hopes told CNN that the outbreak began in the IT department, and six people ended up being infected.

The one exposed employee in the department who was vaccinated did not get infected, the administrator said.

This maybe the new normal at workplaces.
