Understanding that a diverse housing market is critical to the long-term economic prosperity, Orange County is home to a broad spectrum of housing products. From executive housing to entry-level homes and apartments, Orange County offers a wide variety of residential options in order to meet the housing needs of its businesses.
As the county continues to grow, major developments by The Irvine Company, FivePoint Communities and Rancho Mission Viejo will add thousands of new housing options to Orange County in the coming years.
Helping to fuel Orange County’s diverse housing supply is the continuing adaption to market conditions such as the growing demand for urban lifestyles. As young professionals and retirees alike are turning from suburbs to urban areas, Orange County has seen an increase in infill development. This increase has helped to meet the growing marketplace of people seeking nearby services and ease of movement only offered by dense, vibrant mixed-use areas.
Working to ensure that Orange County continues to keep pace with the county’s housing needs, the Orange County Business Council’s Workforce Housing Committee discusses and takes action on housing and other real estate development issues that have a direct impact on the business community and Orange County’s workforce.
In conjunction, organizations such as the Building Industry Association of Orange County and the Orange County Association of Realtors are at the forefront in working to make sure that Orange County has an adequate supply of housing across the workforce spectrum.
