A sudden spike in the inventory is an ominous sign for sellers to approach the market carefully. 

An Inventory Spike: In the past two weeks, the active inventory had its largest increase since July 2013.

The script for the Orange County housing market has been the same for quite some time now. The year starts with very few homes on the market.

jc beans


J.C. Beans Coffee House, established in 1994, is one of the few remaining successful independent coffee retailers. Their coffee is so good that their business wasn’t threatened when a drive through Starbucks opened up TWO doors down. 

Unlike Starbucks, J.C. Beans has a cozy, traditional atmosphere where one can enjoy a book from their eclectic library in front of a warm fire. It is also furnished with beautiful antiques and works supplied by local artists.

The amazingness doesn’t stop there. They offer homemade, inexpensive baked goods and breakfast burritos. They even have a drive through that opens at 4am for the early birds. Finally, they have a lovely dog friendly outdoor patio and offer dog biscuits for your furry pals.
