When you think of great urban parks across the country what is the first park that comes to your mind? If you thought Central Park in New York, you would be correct since Central Park has been one of the most well-known parks in the United States since 1857. Rise of the Great Park   Although Central Park is spacious at 843 acres, the Orange County Great Park is set to dwarf Central Park in size since the park will be 1,300 acres upon its completion. What’s going to make the Great Park really unique is that the land the Great Park is being developed on will also be used for housing and urban development since the Irvine City Council approved FivePoint Communities in November 2013 to begin developing homes on land just next to the actual park. What to Expect Besides homes we can also expe...

President Barack Obama announced on January 7, 2015 that the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) would lower its annual mortgage insurance premiums from 1.35% to .85% (for loan to values above 95%). Although a date has not yet been announced for when this will go into effect, the lower mortgage insurance drop is fairly significant. FHA Mortgage Insurance Has Increased 4 Times Since 2010Since 2010, when the annual mortgage insurance premiums (which are paid on a monthly basis) were only .55% for loans over 95% loan to value, the MI has increased four times. In October 2010 the rate increased from .55% to .9%; in April 2011 it increased to 1.15%; in June 2012 it increased to 1.25%; and in April 2013 it increased to where we are now at 1.35%.

One of the many good reasons to own Irvine real estate is the Orange County Great Park.  The Great Park Balloon is the signature attraction of the park. Between 25 and 30 people can float 400 feet above the park. On clear days, passengers can see 40 miles in every direction. Adult tickets for the balloon are $10. Children are free with an adult ticket. There are lots of activities on firm ground for Irvine real estate owners, too. There are many paths to walk or run. One of the distinctive paths is the Walkable Historical Timeline. It begins at 13,000 BC, when humans reach the Americas and ends at 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down. There are fields and facilities for sports, and visitors can check out sports equipment at the Visitors Center. On Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., stock up...
