Keep Your Product (and Profits) in Top Form in this Challenging Market!

While the stock market has soared in the last year and the new tax laws offer hope for the economy, the homebuilding industry still faces significant headwinds. Rapidly rising new home prices are causing affordability issues throughout the country and interest rate increases have brought mortgage rates to nine month highs.

This economic expansion (now 9 years old) won’t last forever and when the market turns one thing is certain — builders with the best product have the best chance to survive and thrive. Now more than ever, make sure your detached new home plans are absolutely cutting-edge — the Spring 2018 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 March for two incredible days and see more than 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.

Starting with some innovative higher density detached programs, we’ll move up in square footage through traditional two-stories, master-down plans, and even some single story plans, with an astounding mix of architectural styles, including some great modern architecture examples.

You’ll see the best in today’s cutting-edge 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 16 of the absolute best model home complexes (including some brand new and incredible over-the-top luxury stops that have just recently opened)! We’ll showcase 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 2,000 to 7,000 sq. ft., the heart of this tour will be Single Family Detached homes from 3,000 to 4,000 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 from 400-500 photographs (or more!) 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.
