High Resolution Floor Plans Available!

A floor plan shows the layout of the entire home, not just part of it. Floor plans reveal the proportions of rooms, the number of rooms and the traffic flows among them. A buyer can instantly see, for instance, if the kitchen is conveniently close to the dining room, whether bedrooms open directly onto an entertainment area, or whether a trip to the guest bathroom will involve a long walk through the home.

I can provide you with complimentary, high resolution floor plans for any standard builder home or condominium in Lake Forest, Portola Hills, Baker Ranch, Foothill Ranch, or other area of South OC. These are e-mailed to you, usually with 24 hours of your request. Just click on the link below and be sure to specify the city and the tract that you are interested in.

Please note that as of Jan 1, 2012, we are now being charged for each floor plan. We are still happy to send you a floor plan, but please DO NOT request a floor plan if you are an appraiser, if you are not serious about buying or leasing a home, or if you are working with another real estate broker -- Thank you for your understanding!

Please send me an e-mail with floor plans for my selected tract
