Paid about $1.8M in March 2019, asking $2.188M in December 2020.  Maybe the seller will include that nifty lion rug in the master bedroom.  glhf

Hey they have a lazy river in the back yard.  That alone adds an extra $100k.

Good catch, I’ve never seen that whereas I see the opposite a lot.

LOL because the agent just copy and pasted another listing's description...verbatim. How low effort can you get? This is the kind of work this agent will do for $40-60k commission? Sheesh...talk about bottom of the barrel marketing.

Man, I must be dumb spending about an hour writing up property descriptions for each of my listings....I could have just done a copy/paste.  haha

That is horrible. The agent should be embarrassed and the home owner deserves better.

Ravello Models now available.

https://www.redfin.com/CA/Irvine/135-Summerland-92620/unit-54/home/173913970

Models on sale already?  Did they almost sell out Ravello? If so, that was pretty fast.

I am constantly amazed at the pricing OH models are being marketed at.

Here's a home with an actual ocean view in a comparative school district for about the same price:

https://www.redfin.com/CA/Newport-Beach/12-Catania-92657/home/4749849

Still need Irvine? Here's one with a net payment equal to the OH model home given it's MR.

https://www.redfin.com/CA/Irvine/17-Pemberly-92603/home/4745825


It's got to be that "new home smell and feel" that drives prices to that height. At $3.2m there are plenty of choices out there....eh?

That new home smell are the paint fumes that are off gassing and killing brain cells.

Well... more like lazy bank. But if that were in my backyard, the IHO view increases it $200k! :)

Who would have thought "rare full-size driveway make a striking impression" would be a selling point?

At some point, I think people will start to wonder if it is really worth it to live here.

I think that can be said about almost anywhere.

We've debated this before, with many cities, and since this is TalkIRVINE... there are a few (or more) who have a bias. :)
