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.

Located near the cross streets of Indianapolis and Newman in Huntington Beach is the The Pacific Sands community.  It's not uncommon to find one story homes in the mid $700,000 range that average around 3 bedrooms with 1,300 square feet.  These are very popular homes that tend to sell very quickly if priced accordingly.  One thing to keep in mind when buying in this area is that some of the homes are on lease land.  The land fee will vary depending on the property as we have seen fee's around $193.00 to $250.00 a month.

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
