Irvine CA Real Estate Stays Hot With Big Buyer Competition

Competition to buy remains high
Irvine CA home sellers are experiencing solid competition between buyers.  This leads to more homes being sold quickly, fewer homes listed for sale and markets crowded with buyers – which favors sellers. 

Irvine CA home selling

Irvine CA is especially crushed with qualified and motivated home and property buyers.  

With about 214,000 residents, Irvine has 190,000 jobs – more number of jobs than number of residents over the age of 18.  Irvine has more jobs as compared with number of residents than any other city of its size in California. FOR SALE LISTINGS NEEDED

While Irvine is selling average of 186 homes per month this year 2012, it now has only 219 homes listed for sale – not enough to keep up with buyers – and average market time to theoretically sell all homes at that rate is hot at about 1.2 months. 


Average selling price of an Irvine home has been about $667,000 this year.  But very few properties remain on the market in this range of price – and average list price pushed up to twice that of the average sold price.     

This Irvine CA real estate market is hot with buyers and needs help from hesitating home sellers and more listings.
