Prior to COVID-19, open houses for the newest and hottest homes for sale in Irvine were held every single weekend for locals to come and take a tour, have a chat with their neighbors, and maybe even have a drink or two. While the current epidemic didn’t stop homeowners from listing and selling their homes or potential buyers from looking through the available homes for sale, the coronavirus did put a halt to these popular open house tours.
With the epidemic making in-person tours no longer an option, real estate companies and agents had to quickly find an alternative to getting eyes on their listings, and those hoping to view a property were looking for an answer.
Fortunately for real estate agents, home sellers, potential buyers, and open house frequenters, many listings are now including the option to book and attend a virtual tour!
While you can technically schedule a tour for these homes any day of the week, in spirt of the traditional weekend open house, here are five properties you must see this weekend in and around Irvine:
