Any major purchase requires research, careful analysis and consideration and thought, and Irvine home buying isn’t any different. Determining the right location, number of bedrooms and bathrooms needed, and outdoor space may come more quickly to mind, but there are many other factors to think about as well in your Irvine home search.
The number of homes for sale right now is still low. Housing inventory is measured by the number of available homes on the market. It’s also measured by months’ supply, meaning the number of months it would take to sell all those available homes based on current demand. In a balanced market, there’s usually about a six-month supply – and today, we only have about half of that. With inventory that low, buyer competition is ticking back up, meaning multiple offers are returning on a good number of properties.
