Choosing the right home, where you will put down roots and start the next chapter of your life is no easy task. It’s something that MDL homeowner, Hector, knows well and the reason he is happy to have found a home that just feels right.
When Hector decided it was time to buy a home, he had an idea of what he was looking for—somewhere in Orange County so he could be closer to his twin brother, a modern style home with contemporary design, and space for entertaining friends and family. Ideally, it would be a new build and community close to his job in Irvine. This would also be the first home for Hector and his girlfriend, Pau, so he wanted it to be perfect.
After nearly six months, Hector had looked at more than a dozen of townhome communities throughout Orange County. He would research homes online during the week and would spend his weekends doing countless walkthroughs of homes with his brother that just didn’t feel quite right. “I would find places online that seemed like a good fit,” says Hector, “ but when I would visit the homes in person, they all looked much different than what was advertised.”
Pau was also helping Hector look for homes, but since she was living in Columbia and their relationship was long-distance, she would scour Zillow, Redfin, and other websites in search of homes that would fit their taste as well as their budget. That’s how she came across MDL. Hector still remembers the call he got from Pau about it. “She called and was excited to tell me that she found a beautiful new home community in a great area that was just a few miles from my work. We both have the same taste for modern homes, so when she showed me the site for MDL, I knew I had to check it out.” The only thing was that the homes were still under construction and were not yet ready to sell.
It didn’t stop him from seeing MDL. Hector marked his calendar the upcoming Grand Opening to tour the model homes and check out the community. He brought his twin brother with him to the Grand Opening to get his input, but the moment the two of them walked through the model home, they both knew right away that the search was over. Hector had found his home. The community was full of amenities, it was minutes from great restaurants and shops, and it was a modern community with brand new…everything. “MDL had such a resort-like feel,” he says. “It also looked the same in person as it did on their website, which was rare.” Another huge selling point for him was the low HOA fees, low tax rates, and no Mello Roos.
It didn’t take long for Hector to be the first one in line to own a new MDL townhome. After a smooth purchase process, he moved into his new home at the start of the year as one of MDL’s first residents. And while Pau has been preparing for a move to Irvine this summer, the two have also been working together to pick out furniture and decorate their new place to match their tastes.
“MDL is so different than other communities I’ve seen,” says Hector. “They have everything. There are so many amenities, the community is quiet, everything I need to get to is close by, and our home is exactly what I had envisioned. I’ve been looking to find the perfect home where Pau and I would be able to start the next chapter of our lives together, and I’m so happy that MDL is the place where that will happen.”http://mdlirvine.com/homes/
