Where are all the Portola Hills Homes? Maybe listed in the wrong city....

This has been a common question I have been receiving lately from Home Buyers.... Where are all the Portola Hills homes for sale?  That's right inventory is VERY low.  However, as I was searching for a home for a buyer, I did find a little interesting tidbit, 5 Portola Hills homes currently active are listed in the wrong city.

Now you might be thinking that is not a big deal, but put yourself in a home buyers seat, who is searching online at 9pm at night.... Buyers search by two main things.... Price and Location. They then drill down to neighborhoods and details such as school.   Buyers searching for homes in Portola Hills and are not going to find these properties.  So as a Home Seller you are missing out.

Interesting these 5 listings are all listed by out of the area real estate agents and have been on the market longer than any listing that is correctly listed on the market.  In addition there were 3 sold listings listed in the wrong city.  What is the issue you here.... think home values.

Pricing as well is based on two main things: Location and Size.  So if something sells at a higher price point and is not pulled up when you are looking at comparable properties then you again are missing out.

If you are considering listing your home, please take this into consideration.   If you are hiring an out of the area listing agent, you may want to ask that listing agent to refer or co-list with a local agent to ensure your best interest are being looked after. Of course don't hesitate to give us a call.  We understand the Portola Hills market as well as the surrounding neighborhoods of Foothill Ranch, Trabuco Canyon, Silverado, Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo and we promise we will list your home in the right city.
