Bel-Aires of Northpark Square

Posted: 04 Sep 2012 05:00 AM PDT

Three Bel-Aire properties with similar floor plans are for sale in the Northpark Square area. Northpark Square is the tiny area between Irvine Boulevard and Bryan, and Culver and toll-way 261. They are a walking distance from Beckman High School and Hicks Canyon Elementary School, and around a mile from Orchard Hills Middle School. Not to be confused with Northpark which is a guard gated community, Northpark square is partially gated, and none of the Bel-Aire homes are gated.

Recent comparative summer sales:

21 Amargosa
Sold for $836,000 in June 2012 for $238/SF.

28 Thorn Hill
Sold for $935,000 in August 2012 for $266/SF.

12 Ravendale
Sold for $945,000 in August 2012 for $319/SF.

Which one would you buy?
None of them back high traffic streets, all of them were built around the same time, all of them were owned by the same owner for the last decade, and all are maintained and upgraded to keep with the current trends. Recent sales trend shows a wide Price/SF range, but all three properties are priced within the highs and lows of the summer.
