For Costa Mesa readers who happened across this month’s, the news revealed by its top headline would certainly have kept them reading. “We’re Getting Closer to a Martian Housing Market” is likely to have been a surprise to most local residents.

Even if they were currently active house hunters who had decided to expand their search beyond the Costa Mesa listings, the news that neighborhoods elsewhere in the Solar System were about to open up had probably escaped their notice. The notion of considering a starter home on the Red Planet wasn’t a widely discussed alternative, but if the curbed headline was legit, humanity is now nearing a milestone where first-time shelter-seekers might soon go extraterrestrial.

The explanatory details were far out. The notion was inspired by a New York Times report that detailed the scouting efforts of University of Arizona geoscientists to identify Martian subterranean caves that would “make…suitable shelter” for future Red Planet residents. Martian listing details might differ from Costa Mesa’s—ours never even mention superior micrometeorite or solar radiation shielding, but the “getting closer” timeline claim is valid. Well-informed Times readers don’t need to be reminded that human visitations to the Martian plains are definitely on NASA’s calendar, set to take place not quite as quickly as you can say “Elon Musk”—but sooner than you’d think. Once there, the humans will have to wait a while before blasting back to Earth because of the way their orbits…Well, you know.

So, the real estate scene and the housing market on Mars are topics bound to become less abstract than they have been up until now. Eventually, there’s bound to develop some similarity to today’s Costa Mesa MLS entries. Martian listings might brag about their superior Transit Accessibility (if close to a landing site). The photo at the top of a listing might lack terrestrial curb appeal, but when the Hero Shot is a well-rendered hi-res image taken at the right time of day by the HiRise camera already aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, it might spur demand for a virtual walk-through (it would have to be totally virtual). If it qualifies as one of the nine caves reportedly under serious consideration by NASA, it would likely place high on any astronaut’s ‘gotta see this one’ list.

Although our current terrestrial Costa Mesa listings lack subterranean cavern entries, they do include some out-of-this-world properties. Call us when you’d like to explore further!
