Keep Your Luxury Product (and Profits) in Top Form!

Markets have slowed and competition is getting stronger, and the economic outlook is challenging at best … an ideal climate to step back and make sure your new home product is cutting-edge.  The Spring 2017 Detached/Luxury New Home Tour of Orange County, CA is a great way to do just that!

The tour will be based at the beautiful 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).

Join us in October for two incredible days and see 40 of the best detached model homes in Southern California, featuring the best of the best from first-time Move-up product to incredible Luxury product, and some great Move-down product as well.

You’ll see the best in today’s cutting-edge luxury trends, from stunning kitchens (many with caterer’s kitchens) and incredible 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 see 17 of the absolute best model home complexes (including 6 brand new and incredible luxury stops that have just opened this summer!) featuring the work of some of the most talented builders, architects and interior (and exterior!) designers in the industry.  You’ll see a little of everything in detached housing, from smart and small high-density detached product to incredible luxury homes exceeding 6,500 sq. ft.. While the total range of product shown will be 1,800 to more than 6,500 sq. ft., the heart of this tour will be Single Family Detached homes from 2,800 to 3,800 sq. ft.

You’ll see today’s most innovative designs, with great examples of first-time, second-time, and ultimate move-up buyer plans. Great kitchens, innovative mud rooms and drop zones, smart storage and flex space options, smaller but dynamic yard spaces and multi-generational living options are huge trends in today’s market, and you’ll see and photograph some truly great examples.  It’s no wonder most of our attendees take more than 500 photographs during the tour!

If this is your first tour, you’ll be amazed that we fit this all into two intense, but thoroughly fun days in one of the best places in the country to hang out — beautiful Orange County, CA.  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!)

Join us and see firsthand the ideas and trends that are turning shoppers into buyers, all in a great Orange County, California setting.  Consider making it a working vacation by staying over the weekend to enjoy all that Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach (and beyond) have to offer.

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