Irvine is one of the most sought after area's in all of Orange County. Irvine is a fantastic place to raise children. Children can safely play outside or ride their bikes on the many greenbelts. The city is packed with parks and bike trails. The schools are very good and there is no shortage of fun things to do in the community. The weather is gorgeous with mild summer and winter temperatures. Irvine is a planned community so everything is well thought out and beautifully landscaped - a visual feast for the eyes. Yet there are plenty of untouched open spaces as well, some of which are open to the public for hiking and exploring.
Finding the right neighborhood for your family requires additional details. I personally like north Irvine. However, depending on your budget, these are the areas that i would recommend.
1. University Park
2. Turtle Rock
3. Turtle Ridge
4. Shady Canyon ($3 Million and above, high rent area)
We have several rental and For Sale listings in all of these areas, I would be more than happy to explore your options further. You can call me at 949-295-6491 or email at Frank@ShamooTeam.com with your budget and detailed home options. I will forward you properties that are in your price range.

Having a part-time agent will affect your home search. Why? A part-time agent has limited hours studying the inventory on the market and even less time to take you out to see hot properties. Right now, there are multiple offers on good deals and it's more likely to miss those deals with a part-time agent. Helpful as she is, will you be happy with the results?
Irvine is full of great neighborhoods. What is your price range? That will be a better way to help you pick the neighborhood. Also, what age are your children? I would be happy to get some school reports for you. Are you looking for any other ammenities?

Look at which property is going to give you both the best commute to and from work. If that is not a factor, and you absolutely can't see your way clear to keeping both and renting out the home that you are not occupying - rentals should be very valuable this year, then you might want to look at the desirability of both locations.
In order to give you a dollars and sense (or cents) answer I would need to have the addresses of both properties so that I could do a CMA for both locations. Please contact me with the information and I will be happy to help you with not only that, but also with the sale of the property.
Take care, have a wonderful day and a Happy New Year!
