IRVINE HOME VALUES TRIPLE ORANGE COUNTY’S OVERALL APPRECIATION RATE

经济学家Mark Boud对洛杉矶橙郡近期房市数据分析而论: 自2005年以来,尔湾的物业增值率是橙县其它城市的3倍!!! 不光是新屋,二手房市场也是这样. 这不是偶然现象,这跟尔湾的综合条件,整体实力息息相关,无论是位置,就业,学校,公园,安全程度,都是其他城市不可媲美的. 不仅如此,房贷利率从一年前的4.87%降至3.5%,对购房买家来说每月房贷利息节省近$1000/月,进一步说明此时正是“屯货”的好时机,不管您是自住还是投资,增值潜力和回报率都不会让你失望!房地产是稳健保守积累财富的最好方式,向往财务自由争做“地主”的有志人士们的不二选择!

Something stood out to Metrostudy Chief Economist Mark Boud when analyzing Orange County home value data in July: Irvine was an outlier … by a lot. So he reran the numbers, and ran them again. Same result.

Boud’s analysis confirmed that Irvine new-home values have tripled Orange County’s overall appreciation rate. Since 2005, Irvine home values have appreciated by 77%. The rest of Orange County appreciated at 22%.

“The proof of Irvine’s value is in the numbers,” Boud says. “The city has significantly outpaced its neighbors.”

And the correlation isn’t just during periods of economic growth. Boud’s numbers also show that during challenging times, Irvine’s homes depreciate at a far slower pace than those in surrounding communities.

“We believe it is Irvine’s balance that drives and retains value,” Boud says. “Schools, parks, open space, high-paying jobs, public safety … all these factors converge positively here in ways other communities simply cannot match.”

Boud also notes that value should not be confused with prices.

“It’s the difference between climate and weather,” Boud explains. “We’re looking at the long-term arc of home values. Prices will fluctuate from time to time, but what’s more important for a local economy is how value performs over the long haul, and Irvine is in a class of its own.”

While Irvine’s balance is well-known, its schools appear to be the primary driving force for local families. According to homebuyer surveys conducted by Irvine Pacific – an Irvine-based homebuilder – schools were the No. 1 factor in choosing to buy in Irvine.

“We bought our home in Portola Springs eight years ago because of the incredible schools and convenient location – it’s close to everything,” says Cameron Salehi, a homeowner in Portola Springs. “We love it here and plan to stay, but it is great that our home values keep going up.”
