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

There is also another perk in buying an end unit is the

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.

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
