Free Rent – The Park at Irvine Spectrum

Why would one of Orange County’s newest, nicest, most amenity filled apartment communities offer free rent through the rest of 2012?  Maybe they’ve experienced a bit of a lull in prospective tenant traffic.  Let’s face it, November and December are not when most people are looking to move.  Or maybe they really just want to maximize their occupancy before the end of the year.  Whatever the reason, it doesn’t change the fact that this is truly one of the most luxurious places to rent in all of Orange County…AND THEY’RE GIVING IT AWAY.  Read more

Here is an article written by Nadia Osman, who believes now is a great time to buy Orange County Real Estate:

If you’ve been eagerly waiting for a sign that now is the time to purchase a home, consider the following a positive piece of evidence: according to the S&P/Case-Shiller index, U.S. home prices fell 2.6 percent in March, making prices the lowest they have been since 2006.
