It has been an absolute nightmare dealing with William Lyons. I would not recommend buying a new home through them. You might have better luck buying a resale WL home that has been repaired by the homeowners. They have a very limited warranty and use very cheap appliances that may look new/modern but don't last and work horribly. The workmanship is very poor and many items will wear and break within a 1-3 year time period. Within one year we had a crack form inside of the freezer part of our fridge. Within 2 years the transmission blew in the "brand new" washer that we purchased with the home. The dishwasher is the worst I have ever seen and leaves a residue on my dishes and that is with me basically hand -washing the prior to loading. Our gate was never repaired correctly and constantly gets stuck and now we have a whole panel of brick next to the gate that has come loose. We also have stucco issues. The carpet on our stairs is coming completely de-tached from the steps. I had to fight for them to fix a door bell problem that was due to poor electrical. Nothing else on this list they were willing to fix even after I filed a complaint with the BBB. I am at the point at looking into a possible class action law suite that I have heard from neighbors that they have joined. We live in Arizona and many of our neighbors have also had a very bad experience. You have been warned!! ... more

Trump's plan eliminates the tax advantages of home ownership. As a Realtor, I oppose this plan! It is unforeseen what impact it will have on the market.

Prices will go down. Ask Bob to co-sign your mortgage if you believe otherwise.

Hi, Erin-
This is a question best directed to your Realtor! Here are a few things to look at:
- how are the pictures on the listing? Professional? 90% of home-buyers start their search on the internet, so make sure your pictures look good! Along with that is the property description- has to be top-notch and complete!
-how many open houses have you done, and are they promoted on the internet?
-are you priced competitively for your market?

Let me know if you need anything else!

The market is on the way up due to the fact that most people expect interest rates to raise. Watch inventory as long as it is down prices are raising.

The market is on Fire. There is little inventory and a huge demand. Buyers that require financing don't want to miss buying a home before the interest rates increase.
Today there are 170 Active Homes in 92629 zipcode and 90 homes in Back-Up/Pending Status.
The average market time is 2.80 months compared to the market time of 4.25 months 1 year ago.
The average list price is $2.8MM.
I help buyers find homes that are not on the MLS when the inventory is this tight.
In March I purchased a home in Monarch Bay. I love helping buyers and sellers with their real estate needs. Contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Nicole Fedorchek answered:
Its hard to predict price appreciation that far in the future. What I can say is that Real Estate is one of the best investments you can make!
The rentals on these units should be around $900-1000 for the studio, $1300-1400 for the 1-bedroom, and about $1600-1700 for the 2-bedroom unit.
For selling, the one-bedroom units are selling just under $200k, and the 2-bedroom units are in the mid-300s.
Please let me know if you would like any further information!

The people who told you this are not correct. The water quality is tested annually and it is very good in Newport, Laguna Beach and Corona Del Mar.
