Except your entire post is a non sequitur. This was the statement from a real estate professional on this thread: Irvine prices recovered first and went higher than most all other OC cities.So there you go... in LL's own words... a simple search on TI will tell you the truth.
I demonstrated that Irvine prices did not go higher than most all other OC cities. Even lowly Santa Ana beat Irvine in percentage terms.
This is the danger when people carelessly quote you on this forum. Whether it's the 15% big lie (realtor Panda quoted you on that one) or that Irvine recovered first and went higher (USC quoted you on that one), they get themselves into hot water and look foolish.
