Top 10 reasons to buy a home in Orange County in 2009!

Posted on December 31, 2008. Filed under: First Time Buyer help |

  • 10.  Orange County Real Estate investments are among the highest yielding home buys in the United States.  When you purchase a home in Orange County, particularly along the coastal area, you will have a high return for your investment and a great quality of life.
  • 9.   Several of the “top cities” in America are here in Orange County.  Irvine is rated #4 for 2008.  Families who live in Irvine say it is close to perfect… award winning schools, low crime rate, beautiful open spaces for outdoor activity and great shopping and entertainment, not to mention a hub for technology.
  • 8.  You can now buy a Newport Beach mansion for under 40 Million dollars- at least a 17 Million dollar reduction from its original asking price!
  • 7.  Interest rates on 30 year fixed mortgages are at their LOWEST in 30 years!  As of today, they are under 5%.  Consult a certified mortgage planner for details.
  • 6.  Your neighbor could be one of the “Real housewives of Orange County” and if you borrow a cup of sugar, you could end up on a reality show!
  • 5.  Home sales are UP, median home prices are DOWN.  All told, county-wide, sales were +39% vs. median home prices down -31%, therefore, a great time to BUY.
  • 4.  Orange County is unlike anyplace in the world.  Our diverse industry has kept our economy and per capita income growth strong.  We have blue ribbon schools and the best climate and environment; mountains, canyons and 40 miles of ocean frontage.
  • 3.  We have Fashion Island, The District, Irvine Spectrum, and other beautiful outdoor shopping centers.  Where else in the country can you take your family AND your poodle to dine and shop in the middle of winter?
  • 2.  Getting married in 2009?  Let your family and friends know you are saving for your first home!  FHA and other loan options allow you to put only 3% DOWN on your dream home, and this can come from “gift money”.  So instead of a place setting or a toaster, use your “gift money” for your down payment and don’t throw away money on rent!

This is a great idea for brides and grooms- I am going to talk with my sister who is getting married this year. Great suggestion, thank you!

I have friends who have worked with this team and they are friendly, and unusually helpful. I want to let everyone know that there are nice helpful people in Orange County and they are top of the list.

Grace, thank you for your kind words! We are truely passionate about making the real estate experience for clients on both sides of the transaction a positive one 🙂

Suzanne, tell your bride-to-be about Its an exclusive program we’ve arranged so brides can register to buy a home in Orange County…they get a free wedding website and all family and friends can securely donate online to the cause. It creates a separate bank account in the Bride and Groom’s name that is interest bearing, and these funds can be used as down payment or closing costs on the loan. We are trying to help young couples build a solid foundation for their future together!!
