Keep Your Product & Profits in Top Form!

As prices in many markets continue to escalate at a much greater rate than incomes, the demand for more affordable attached housing grows stronger and stronger. Builders in Southern California have responded with an explosion of new attached product, and you’ll see the very best on our upcoming two day tour of attached (and high-density detached) model homes on November 17th & 18th.

The tour will be based at the Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel at the celebrated Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa, CA, just a stone’s throw from John Wayne/Orange County Airport and fabulous Newport Beach. The Westin is adjacent to the renowned South Coast Plaza shopping complex, one of the most exclusive shopping and dining destinations in the country (accessible via pedestrian bridge from the hotel).

We’ll visit Los Angeles County on day one and Orange County on day two, so you’ll see an incredible variety of attached (and high-density detached) product.

Why is this tour critical? Because 80% of attached buyers don’t really want to be in attached housing (they’d rather buy a detached home if only they could afford it), making your product strategy and product compromises even more critical to your success. On this tour you’ll see a great variety of strategies — join us and discover what separated the winners from the rest of the pack.

Diversity will be the key to this tour. We’ll cover a lot of ground and see a great variety of product types, from duplexes to triplexes, townhomes and combo-condos, 3 and 4-story stacked flats, some mid-rise and high rise, and some great high-density detached projects as well. And just for eye candy fun, we’ll throw in a couple of over-the-top luxury projects at the end of each day.

All in all, you’ll see 18 model home parks, more than 50 decorated models, some great sales centers and amenity facilities, and some of the best interior 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 take 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!)

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