Registration is Underway!

We are thrilled to present an exclusive Luxury New Home Tour in Southern California on June 19th & 20th at the Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel at the renowned Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa, just a stone’s throw from John Wayne/Orange County Airport and Newport Beach.

Our last two tours (Detached & Attached Product) both sold out quickly, and chances are this one will, too, as demand for luxury housing is one of the strongest components of today’s marketplace, and our product lineup is exceptional!

When the recovery started in Southern California in January 2010, the emphasis was on mid-range move-up housing, with the average new SFD home sold coming in at under 2,000 sq. ft. Now the market has migrated to attached product at the lower end, and especially to larger and more luxurious homes at the upper end.

Builders in Southern California have responded in a big way, with an unprecedented number of luxury communities opening just this year! Join us in June and you’ll see 16 of the best of the best luxury new home communities, from 2,800 to 6,000 sq. ft.

The more than 40 decorated models showcased on the tour will highlight some of the most talented builders, architects and interior designers in the country. You’ll see the best in today’s cutting-edge luxury trends, from stunning kitchens (some with caterer’s kitchens) and outdoor kitchens, to opulent master bedrooms and bathrooms. The blending of indoor/outdoor spaces alone is remarkable and well worth the trip in and of itself! You’ll bring home hundreds of ideas and literally hundreds and hundreds of photographs. Bring lots of memory cards and batteries!

Consider making it a working vacation by staying over the weekend to enjoy all that Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach have to offer. Besides the incredible beaches and world class shopping, there are nearly 100 great restaurants within a 20 minute drive of the hotel.

What’s Included

The tours are open to principals and key staff from homebuilders, developers, architects and interior design firms. Registration includes the complete tour plus deluxe hotel accommodations on Wednesday & Thursday nights. A limited number of rooms are also available at group rates if you’d like to extend your stay. Please indicate your arrival and departure dates when you register so that we may make the appropriate hotel reservations for you. Registration also includes breakfast and lunch on both touring days, plus a cocktail reception, syllabus with sales & marketing information, and brochures for each community we visit.
