Holy heck.  I know OH3 prices are high but you can get this for the same price.

Saw that and thought the same thing as well. I'm just really trying to understand what's drawing people to the Reserve once you get up to 2M+. Is it because a lot more homes have views there? The Groves is just so much more appealing to me. You have better home designs and more square footage in the Groves for the price. Maybe somebody has some insight.

Also the school district. People put a value on that. Reserve is IUSD. Groves is zoned to TUSD

And that Irvine marketing tricks some people into thinking there’s a difference. Beckman high is as good as any iusd school. In fact it’s in Irvine LOL

The name of Beckman sounds very high-end and prestigious.

Are prices really this crazy high today  - 1.68 Mill for a SFR in Eastwood:
https://www.redfin.com/CA/Irvine/121-Pewter-92620/home/112724022

Late last year, the singe level new construction from KB homes (NAPA) was sitting for months together and went for around 1.45 million earlier this year. I feel like passed up some good SFR opportunities now.

And this Delano attached Condo for 1.2 Million? Granted it has some furniture in it, but still 1.2M for attached Condo?

I noticed a lot of these wtf listings are listed by Chinese agents.  Do they eventually sell for asking or are these agents unaware of market?

They have unmotivated sellers who own the homes outright so they can be a little stubborn.

Like USC said, unmotivated sellers but willing to sell if a certain price is obtained. I had a listing for someone that owned their home outright and kept it vacant because they don't want to deal with renters. Most of these owners are financially savvy to be in the position they are in. They know that their holding costs are lower than home appreciation so they are willing to wait for the right price.

Dang, I can't imagine being rich enough to keep a $1m+ home vacant for lack of wanting to deal with renters.
