I think it's maybe bc you can now sign up for an acct without having to go through the admin?

Yup, although I am still manually checking IPs before approving the accounts.

Hello everyone!  My name is Todd and I am the owner of PiggyBoxes.com, and we are a new site supporter here on Talk Irvine.

 First a little about us: My wife and I currently live in Aliso Viejo after moving from Irvine a few years ago.  I worked for the Irvine Company for about 4 years before starting PiggyBoxes and my wife works at a non-profit dental office in Garden Grove.

A little bit about our company:
PiggyBoxes are reusable plastic moving boxes that you rent instead of buying cardboard boxes.  They make moving easier, more efficient, and greener!  We deliver for free anywhere in Orange County but also service the portions of the IE, Southern LA, and North San Diego.  We have been in business for almost 2 years and have almost 30 5 star reviews across Yelp, Angieslist, and Google. We look forward to helping you with your next move!

We look forward to contributing here on Talk Irvine!  :)

Hello,

I've lived in Irvine for about 11 years and am planning to buy a property in Irvine within the next 8-12 months.  My interests are cars, cars and cars.  A coworker of mine referred me to this site, and here I am.  I've been reading up on many different topics and particularly enjoy the members' humor.

I'm here to learn more about Irvine real estate, contribute as much as I can and hopefully find a nice condo.  I will be looking for a 2-3 bedroom 2-3 bath condo, with two car garage and would like to stay below $650K if I can.  No Mello roos, and I don't care if a house is brand new or 30 years old as long as it is well kept. 

One thing I've noticed about Irvine market is how the lack of trend in pricing is becoming a trend by it self.   :o

Looking forward to learning from you all and contribute if I can.

Cheers,
Reza

Welcome to TI.

If you don't want to pay Mello Roos, you're going to have to buy either something at least 15 years old or... well... I don't think there are new condos in non-Mello Roos areas of Irvine.

There is a trend in Irvine pricing... always more than it used to be. :)

Thank you, those are very nice, and are the exact types I'm looking to buy.  I wish I was ready to pull the trigger, but saving up the down payment.   8)

Thank you, and I'm not particularly looking for new houses as I don't really understand why everyone jumps on the new constructions.
