What’s “Typical” in Costa Mesa Luxury Homes?

Location Luxury Lifestyle

The typical Costa Mesa luxury home buyer isn’t really “typical” any more than the property they will ultimately acquire. It’s a simple fact that the affluent prospective buyers who are Costa Mesa’s next homeowners simply can’t be pigeonholed in any meaningful way. The Luxury Home Council defines the group as “owners of properties valued at five times the median price of U.S. homes”—but in fact, many Costa Mesa luxury properties significantly exceed that metric. Again, there simply is no “typical.”

It follows that generalizations about today’s Costa Mesa luxury properties are also few and far between. But there are some features that writers point to as gaining increasing popularity. Some include—

Designer Dressing Rooms. Yesterday’s closets are rapidly expanding into walk-in areas with luxurious cabinetry, sound systems, and designer lighting. Glass cases may display handbags and clothing; opening drawers can trigger lighting.
Gourmet Kitchen features are evolving. Today’s luxury kitchen may have built-in iPhone triggered coffee brewers, wine refrigerators (or walk-in, climate-controlled wine rooms), warming drawers—and/or any of the rapidly surfacing electronic “smart” kitchen adjuncts. There is no ‘typical.’
Spas. Luxury in today’s master bathrooms really comes closer to what high-end resorts feature in their spas. These begin with double vanities and walk-in showers, then add features ranging from towel warmers and rain showers to radiant-heated floors, soaking tubs, skylights and fireplaces—often designed with materials that create an organic, natural ambiance.
Gymnasiums. Fitness facilities custom-designed for the health needs of their owners eliminate the need to exercise in public membership health clubs. Indoor swimming (or lap) pools can add year-round utility.
Smart Technology. Household systems that can be monitored at home or from afar via smartphone apps are no longer the exclusive province of homes that meet the “luxury” designation.

That should be reserved for those that have been elegantly integrated for simplicity of operation. They provide improved security, and for Costa Mesa’s luxury homeowner, enhanced ease of mind.
Of course, for any of Costa Mesa’s true luxury offerings, there is no “typical.” For a detailed exploration of the luxury properties that meet your own criteria, give us a call!

What’s the Most Important Part of Costa Mesa Real Estate?

A key real estate insight was on display in one recent sponsored post that appeared in the Inman real estate trade newspaper. The theme was about eternal industry truths—rules that apply to businesses big and small.

One of the rules is widely understood by any enterprise that deals with consumers: it’s that “people-based” marketing is what works. The idea is to appreciate the emotional—as well as the rational—underpinnings of what people bring to how they lead their daily lives. In real estate, that translates into choosing to emphasize the experience made possible by a home’s features— rather than just naming the features themselves. Instead of simply listing the Jenn-Air this or Sub-Zero that, it’s more effective to first describe how a kitchen provides an ideal setting for gourmet cooks to create their show-stoppers—then detail the high-end appliances that make it so.

That’s a worthy insight, as was another that was also thought-provoking. It dealt with the primacy of “place” in real estate: the “Costa Mesa” in “Costa Mesa real estate.” It may be true that for many prospective buyers, the community has already been determined—in which case, competitive listings will have that in common.

But that needn’t diminish the power of describing how choosing this home will bestow all the advantages of living in Costa Mesa—especially when the offering is in a community that has as much going for it as Costa Mesa does. Potential buyers will be pleased to learn of their new home’s proximity to Costa Mesa community features—the popular restaurants, parks, events, and other appealing attractions that may have drawn them here in the first place. Every Costa Mesa property has its own distinguishing features, and each also has a place in the greater story of our Costa Mesa community—one every future resident is certain to find fascinating.

I hope you will call us when it’s time to sell your own Costa Mesa property!
