No matter what shape or size your living space is, the concept and feeling of home can mean different things to different people. Whether it's a certain scent or a favorite chair, the emotional reasons why we choose to buy our own home are, more often than not, the more powerful or compelling ones.Every year, The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University conducts a survey to find driving factors behind why Americans decide to buy a home.The top 4 reasons to own a home cited by participants of the survey were not financial.1. It means having a good place to raise children & provide them with a good educationFrom the best neighborhoods to the best school districts, even those without children at the time of purchase may have this in the back of their mind as a major reason fo...

Did you know that you can fish in the Woodbridge lakes in Irvine? Yes, with a fishing permit from the Woodbridge Village Association, you can, as long as you're a registered Woodbridge resident, with a WVA Fishing Permit, and have a Fishing Regulations and Log Booklet. An awesome perk of living in Woodbridge, Irvine is being able to catch a glimpse of life going on underneath the surface. There are many species of fish who call the Woodbridge lakes home.Here is a list of some of them as described on the WVA website:Bass“Bass are spiny-finned fish. This bass occurs naturally in eastern North America but has been introduced throughout the rest of the continent. It is one of the most popular of all freshwater game fish; the angling record is 22.25 lb.”  Sunfishes“Most sunfishes are small, ...

The Woodbridge residential housing market has been hot. Home sales have bounced back solidly and are higher than they were when the bubble burst,  as are just about all Irvine home values.  In fact the same applies to home values in most of the country, which are now at their second highest pace since February 2007.Demand remained strong throughout the summer and I saw bidding wars with most of my listings, which sold at or above listing prices. For example my 24 Cedarlake listing below, sold for full list-price of $875,000 in just 6 days.What about your house? Now, more than ever, (because we're almost at the "slow" holiday period), if your house hasn't sold, it's time to figure out why. Yes, marketing, including professionally-taken photos, is very imprtant, but if your house hasn't s...

The holidays are right around the corner, Irvine schools are back, and you might not think that now is the best time to sell your house. But with inventory below historic numbers and demand still strong, you could be missing out on a great opportunity for your family.Here are five reasons why you should consider selling your house this fall:1. Demand Is StrongThe latest Realtors' Confidence Index from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains very strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing and able to purchase... and are in the market right now!Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.2. There Is Less Competition NowAccording to NAR's latest Existing Home Sales Report, the supply of homes for s...

My husband has a listing in Irvine, Ca.   There are MANY MANY new home communities in our area, and we are losing many buyers to those new homes.   My husband needed to create some BUZZ for his listing.He came up with POPPA PANDA! POPPA PANDA is a great big PANDA costume, and I took pictures of POPPA PANDA doing all sorts of houshold things inside the home. He cooks, he eats, he loves his kitchen and jetted tub!It's hysterical!My husband was starting to get MUCH more interest in the house, until the MLS removed the photos! They said it was not within the guidelines of their regulations.   BUT, we still managed to keep them on the other sites such as Trulia and Zillow and others too!He did a great video from Tour Factory for it too.  It's working!http://www.tourfactory.com/1571343 I real...

I try to go for a walk every day, usually before starting my three-minute commute to my office at First Team Real Estate. The sun wasn't up as I walked across the bridge over South Lake in Woodbridge Irvine today, so I had a great view of the full moon.The sun was just about to rise when I snapped this photo of a lone duck, probably looking for breakfast.  South Lake is one of two man-made lakes in Woodbridge. Both have beach lagoons and docks, where sail-boats, canoes, paddleboats and hydro-bikes are available for rent to Woodbridge residents. Sail-boats can only be rented to people who know how to sail. The boat rentals are pretty inexpensive - $10 for 4 half-hour rides or $30 for a pass that’s good for 16 half-hour rides. Woodbridge residents who have their own boats must get Woodbri...
