Huntington Beach is a very diverse beach town with a great variety of residential homes and condos.  For the most part, there are many residential single family homes that were built in the 1950's and 60's with one story level and three to four bedroom floor plans.  The city since then has grown much larger and has expanded on this smaller building floor plan.  Now many of the homes offer a variety of options including homes that have separate entrances.  These can be used for a variety of reasons which are explained here.

An interesting term that you may have heard of in the real estate community called "Broker Preview."  Broker Preview is basically a day designated for real estate brokers and agents to view new listings as they come on the market in the Huntington Beach area.  Not all new listings will be held open for the broker preview as it is completely on a voluntary basis from the listing agent on the property.  Basically, it's an open house for real estate agents.  The theory is that Realtors who have seen a large majority of the listings on the market can quickly identify the correct property when a buyer gives them an exact criteria on the type of home that they are interested in finding.
