The first month of 2017 is well behind us and spring is getting ready to be sprung on the Orange County Real Estate market.   Overall the market is very tight on inventory and new real estate listings are needed for the the high buyer demand we are currently seeing.








When our customer base of worldwide buyers ask about Orange County real estate they often ask about two of our sought-after communities: Irvine and Newport Beach. We thought it would be an interesting look this month; to compare the overall real estate market of these two communities. Below is a how the numbers looked from the Orange County Association of Realtors.

When you are looking at real estate numbers, one factor that is hard to determine is the buyers motivation factor.   If you take the case of Newport Beach, we know this is a high-end market.   Inventory is typically on the market longer.  But when you add the rule of supply and demand in and history tells us, a buyers market is over 6 months of homes on the market.  I would say for Newport Beach detached properties... Now is a great time to buy!!!

The median price in all over OC is approximately $750,000 so for those homes that are priced below this, the market is HOT, HOT, HOT.   That is no exception in Irvine or Newport. Opportunity is knocking for Home Sellers for any home priced under the median as buyer demand is very strong.

Let's not forget this is a recap for the 1st month of 2017.. The market will certainly ebb and flow throughout the rest of the year!!  All real estate is local, this provides a broad review of the market but your neighborhood maybe higher or lower...
