Orange County's larger home builders are grabbing a bigger chunk of the market. The top 10 home builders handled nearly 70% of all Orange County home sales in the first quarter this year, according to MarketPoint Realty Advisors in San Diego. Only two years ago, 49% of the market was controlled by the top 10. The main reason for the growing disparity between the top sellers and the rest is that several major brokerages have merged.

This is what new-home seekers can expect to find this year: a diminishing number of Orange County homes to choose from, a rising number of other bidders for those houses, and a higher selection of single-family homes costing far less in Corona and the Inland Empire. Like other analysts, John Burns of the Meyers Group, an Irvine real estate research firm, expects prices to rise in Orange County, but at a slower pace this year than the record rate last year.

The Olson Co., a privately held builder of affordable housing, has sold a minority stake to three investors for an undisclosed price. The joint stock purchase was made recently by Allstate Insurance Co. of Illinois, Wells Fargo Bank of Minnesota and the California Public Employees' Retirement System pension fund (CalPers). Bolstered by the cash infusion, the Seal Beach home builder said it will expand its senior housing construction and build homes near transit lines in densely populated areas.
