Words really not necessary for this shot on my walk after the rain in Portola Hills.   This view was taken as I was walking through the Sycamore Glen tract in Portola Hills.  The view of the Saddleback Mountains is absolutely stunning and SO GREEN!!Though I think we are a little tired of the rain, I for one am so excited it is going to hit 80 degrees this week.  I am extremely grateful for the rain we have had.. Portola Hills natural beauty shines!

We have hit the 6 month mark of 2016... yes today is June 1st, the unofficial beginning of summer after the Memorial Day holiday.  So what is happening in the Portola Hills real estate market so far this year.   Overall the market continues to shift from 2015.  We are still seeing increased pricing but sales volume is down from last year.    In May 9 homes closed escrow, which is down about 35% from May 2015.   The overall median sales price in May was flat compared to 2015 for the month of May. Out of the 9 homes that closed escrow, 5 were Single Family Residence. The median sales price for a 3 bedroom 2197 square foot home was $810k  The remaining 4 homes were condo's. The median sales price was $436k for a 3 bedroom 1151 square foot home.  Are you wondering why these numbers would be...

As a Realtor in South Orange County, I believe it is important to understand the complete real estate market.  I work with many investor owners in the area who have been long term landlords as well new investors who are looking to expand their real estate portfolio.  In addition, tenant's who have become future homeowners.When I work with any client, my goal is to always understand their long term vision.   Often times, rentals are an aspect of the business many agents do not like to handle. They are a lot of work and honestly for little pay.   I view Rentals much differently.   If I want to be your trusted Realtor for life, then that means I handle the majority of your real estate needs, even the ones that "seem to be a lot of work"  Otherwise.. how can I truly be your Real Estate Advi...

The weather is turning a bit cooler and the holidays are in full swing here in Portola Hills with Thanksgiving behind us, so you might think home sales are probably not on everyone's radar.   That might be the case for Portola Hills... as we saw dip in the number of homes that sold this year vs. what sold in 2014.   In addition, the number of available homes is pretty low with only 6 active properties on the market currently. Is this bad news....Nope just seasonal... With the low number of sales, we still saw price gains... Below is a look at what sold last month....   November 2015 Sold Homes In 2014 14 homes closed escow in November, this year 8 closed escrow.  Though the number of sales decreased, the average price of homes increased in Portola Hills by 17%.  Interestingly the highe...

Below I wrote a quick neighborhood snapshot of the estate homes in the Crown Pointe neighborhood of Portola Hills.   As 2015 has finished and there were a few more sales, I wanted to update what sold in the community in 2015. 2015 Crown Pointe Neighborhood Home Sales in Portola Hills This morning, I took a stroll in the Crown Pointe neighborhood in the community of Portola Hills in Lake Forest, California.  This is a quaint community of 58 Single Family Detached Luxury Estate homes.  Check out our quick snapshot video of his lovely community. I like this community for many reasons, one reason, it's small and located on two wide culd-a-sac streets that offer amazing views of either the Saddleback Mountains or the Pacific Ocean.   The community was built in the early 90's by Richmond Amer...
