What is this "shadow inventory" you speak of?
Once you go 3-car garage... your junk can never go back.

It has been raining; you can't see your shadow. Wait for the sun to come out; then you will see the light.

22 Santa Rida is active again.

Can any of your realtors out there tell us what happened? It was contingent and now it's back... did the buyer not qual? Did the money plane not arrive from a foreign land? Whuhap?

This one in Northpark popped up today and the one big reason why I like it is the lot is HUGE:

102 Spring Vly, 2500sf, $949,000
http://www.redfin.com/CA/Irvine/102-Spring-Vly-92602/home/5812683

Floorplan
http://floorplans.irvinerealtorsite.com/Northpark/MendocinoNorth/MendocinoNorthC2468.JPG

It has dual master closets, upstairs laundry with sink and the back/side yard really does look like a park... no downstairs bedroom though.

This is probably better than the Portola Springs Gray Dove one based on lot size and should move pretty fast.

Wow!  Lot is huge!!  But with 2500 sqft, you would think they could put in a bedroom downstairs.  The price is high too for 2500 sqft.

Yah!  I remember looking at the floorplan and asking myself, "where the heck does all that sqft-age go to?"
They could have fit at least 4 if not 5 bedrooms in 2700 sqft, with 1 downstairs.

Can't tell from the listing but it was only in back-up status for only 9 days.  $400/sf is a very steep price to pay for this home (over comps) so maybe the potential buyer realized they were overpaying and backed out.  Btw, the buyer's agent commission is only 2% for this baby too.  Don't know why the seller is being so greedy as they only have a loan of less than $240k on the property.  

Here are the agent-to-agent comments for your reading pleasure:

"Go Direct- Property is vacant. Please mongo fax or email offers only to XXXXXXX. Please do not fax or deliver offers to our office as it may cause a delay. Per OC Tax Accessor, mello roos + assessments is approximately $3,669 per year. Thank you for showing!"

/sarcasm on

No way, IHO.  This one is fatally flawed with the 714 area code and TUSD.  It will languish on the market for months while Sonoma and Carmel will surely sell out this weekend.  Besides, they would probably need to sell this to some dude doing an FHA loan, because no cash buyers would want a property like this.  The cash buyer kids don't like to play in a backyard.

Nice lot and landscaping. I agree, wish they had that extra bedroom downstairs--would have been ideal. I think it will sell quickly.

It looks like all those Westpark homes are under contract... we'll see what they close at.

Recently there hasn't been very much new 3-car inventory under $1mil in Irvine and there is NOTHING listed under $800k.

Someone tell me how Irvine is NOT different?

It is different.  It doesn't have an 3-car garage homes listed under $800k unlike other cities in OC.

Unfortunately BK spoiled my appetite for 3car frontal garages. Here is an old thread on homes with good aesthetics: http://www.irvinehousingblog.com/forums/viewthread/5487/

I like the 2nd set of pictures with the garage off to one side. Unfortunately to have a home like that in Irvine would be over my budget--think Shady Canyon.

So when will TIC consider building homes Bk style---with a rear entry 2.5 car garage and central courtyard? This plan while not ideal (i.e. no driveway), would still appeal to many potential Irvinites and be more budget and land efficient.
