Give Your Single Family Detached Designs a Makeover for 2020!

As the market continues to slow, the quality of your new home designs will become even more important. Is your product the best in your marketplace? As the market softens, it needs to be — and this tour can help.

This is a relatively new tour for us, as the last ten years has seen the bulk of innovative product in the square footages under 1,500 and above 3,000 sq. ft. But for many builders, detached 1,500 – 3,000 sq. ft. is the heart of their market, and this tour is designed just for them, filling in the gap with great product from 1,500 up to 3,000 sq. ft., and all detached. If you’re building for first-time detached buyers or first time move-up buyers, you won’t want to miss this tour. 50 decorated models will be visited! Our first such tour (last December) was a big hit and we quickly sold out our room block at the Westin.

You’ll see an incredibly wide variety of detached product, from 4-story detached condos (with roof decks), to unique high-density detached plans (imagine 2,300 sq. ft. detached homes with full driveways at 8.5 units per acre!), to great traditional move-up product, some master-down plans, and of course, we’ll throw in a few over-the-top luxury homes just for fun.

Join us on this exciting tour and you’ll see the following —

• Great Exterior Architecture — Traditional, Mediterranean, Modern and Contemporary exteriors will add spice to your next program.

• Roof Decks! If you can’t give them a yard, then give them a roof deck!

• Innovative Land Planning — You’ll see an incredible variety of innovative land plans, from paseo alleys to motor court clusters to narrow lot, wide and shallow, and more.

• Great weather! This is Southern California after all!!

All in all, you’ll see 18 model home parks, nearly 50 decorated models, some great sales centers and amenity facilities, and some of the best interior and exterior design to be found anywhere in the country. You’ll be exhilarated and exhausted by the end of tour(!), but if you’re like most of our tour regulars, you’ll bring back nearly 500 photos chock full of great ideas!

If this is your first tour, you’ll be amazed that we fit this all into two intense, but thoroughly fun days, and in one of the best places in the country to hang out — beautiful coastal Orange County. Come find out why so many of our ‘regulars’ keep coming back year after year!

Stay an extra night or two and enjoy all that Orange County has to offer — including the most beautiful weather, beaches, shopping and restaurants to be found anywhere in one place. (Note: Friday & Saturday night rooms at great rates can be added to your stay, but they are limited, so register soon!)

Early Registration for the December tour (save $100/pp) closes on Friday, October 11th!

The tour is open to builders, developers, architects, interior designers and their employees.
