I got the impression that local Irvine folks think it is a bit far from highway, shopping, etc.

Portola Springs in general is a little far away from everything compare to other villages.
Usually people who live in Irvine are used to close access to freeways and shopping centers within less than 5min driving, but PS does not have that advantage so far. Many were saying it would get better once the retail comes in the village, but that hasn't happened within 10+ years yet. Great Park villages which is near PS are planning to open some retails coming years so that could potentially help, but everything is in unknown so far.

On the good side, you do get more square footage on homes since they do tend to give discount for those disadvantages I've mentioned above. 5 Bed SFR in $1.2m is out of question in other villages. People are concerned about PS not appreciating as much, but if you think about it, it just seems like it is not appreciating as much because you bought it cheaper. The pace of the appreciation should be the same, just not really comparable since you had discounts in the beginning.

If you don't mind driving extra 5-10 min, then you should go for it.


And there are some hazardous concerns..... but the sale office should let you know all those.
