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.

For those who are new to California than you may have not heard about properties that have Mello Roos before.  We commonly see Mello Roos associated with new construction communities where some of the extra building cost fees are passed on to the homeowner.  The easiest way to explain this extra fee is to look at the various costs when building a a brand new neighborhood.  Often times there will be a cost to put in sidewalks, pave streets, put in lamp posts above the streets, etc as those costs can really add up.  In order for the builder to avoid having to pay these costs a Mello Roos bond is often set up to pass on these costs to the new owners of the properties that will be living there.  These are typically from 25 to 30 years as it almost acts like

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.

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.

Huntington Beach is one of the largest beach towns in Orange County with a huge selection of properties near the beach and the Huntington Harbour.  For the most part, many of these properties are located close to each other offering little privacy, especially in the backyard spaces of the home.  There are several neighborhoods that do offer homes with private and/or spacious backyard which are ideal for enjoying the beautiful coastal weather that can be found in Huntington Beach.

One of the places we like to recommend is the gated Seacliff community.  Look for homes located in neighborhoods with detached single family homes as they often are located on large sized lots.  Another gated community that we absolutely love is the Boardwalk community which

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
