When I first move to the Orange County and was looking at homes the word that a lot of real estate agents would use was that the home was "turnkey."  At first I had no idea what they were talking about since it seems to be real estate lingo but quickly understood what they were talking about.  Basically, the phrase means to turn the key and enter the home without having to do any repairs, etc.  This phrase is used so much that it's the one keyword to look for if you are in the market to find a home that doesn't need any work done to it.  Huntington Beach has several homes currently on the market that are in this condition with a wide range of prices from smaller residential condos to single family homes.

Buyers in this current real estate market are

Real Estate agents see a lot of the same homes come on the market with many of the homes that have come on the market several times.  What we love to see are homes that rarely come on the market.  A lot of times these homes have never been on the market for a period of 20, 30 and 40 more years and are typically family owned for a period of generations.  We did a quick search and found many homes that had never been on the market before.  These range from penthouse condos like Harbor Bay Club that offer water and sunset views to single family homes in popular neighborhoods like Bolsa Landmark, Goldenwest Estates, Lake Park and Brightwater communities.

One of the common requests we get from our clients is finding a home that comes with inside laundry.  Of course, for larger homes this a pretty much a common thing to have as many luxury homes even come with their own individual laundry room.  For smaller homes and condos this is a common question as laundry areas can be located in the garage and for residential condos you may find the laundry in the community laundry facility.  In fact, one of the first questions we get from condo buyers is regarding the laundry and having inside laundry is a huge selling feature.  You will sometimes see in condo listings that a unit comes with laundry hookups which often equates to having inside laundry as well.

Probably, the most asked question for those looking to

We get a lot of requests from clients looking for an ocean view home in the Huntington Beach area.  For the most part there are very few communities that offer an ocean view with the exception of neighborhoods like Pacific Shores, Brightwater and the homes that line Pacific Coast Highway.  What many have done in the downtown area is building three level homes that often have a roof top deck that can provide views of the Pacific Ocean.  If you have ever driven through the downtown area of Huntington Beach you will see this the case with large 3 story homes built next to each other.  

Real Estate prices for homes with roof top decks currently start at just under $1.1 million for a three bedroom home that comes with around 2,500 square feet.  Of course,

Home buyers love buying a home that has many upgrades found throughout the home.  Many home owners often forget to upgrade a garage as it's seen as the last thing to do to update the look.  Having a clean and modern garage can add to the value of the home, especially for those buyers who are car enthusiasts or expect everything to be modernized throughout the home.  One easy way to upgrade a garage is to add an epoxy finish to it.  Epoxy floors have a very clean look with a variety of colors that one can choose from.  Once complete, epoxy flooring can add value to any home for a minimal amount of cost.

We did a quick search for homes that are being offered with epoxy floors and found a wide range of properties.  This ranges from small condo communities

Huntington Beach has a nice mixture of residential single family homes that were mass produced in the early 1950's.  There homes are typically one story homes located on smaller lots.  Since that time larger homes were built that often feature a guest house or commonly referred to as a guest casita.  These are often separate and additional living spaces that are ideal for extended family members or out of town guests.  There are a couple of great areas where you can find these types of homes.

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.

First, having a separate entrance is ideal for a guest casita or mother-in-law suite.  This works out perfectly for extended family members and out of town guests who need a separate living space from the main house.  Having a

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.

Even though the Broker Previews are designated for real estate agents
