Happy New Year Portola Hills Peeps. Can you believe it 2017 is here! As I always do, I like to take an in-depth look at how the Portola Hills real estate market performed for the entire year. This review will include an overall look, as well break down the market into various property types to help you determine your Portola Hills home value.

The average price of a standard single family home increased 4% in Portola Hills. Though it is important to note the mix here. The average price per square foot of a single family residence increased 11%. The highest priced home that sold in Portola Hills in 2016 was a Crown Pointe model and sold for $1,050,00
Residence should be very happy with the home value increases in 2016. Homes priced right, well presented and available, consistently out priced our surrounding neighbors. However, 10% of the homes listed did not sell. With low inventory, one of the other aspects, price, condition, presentation must not have been in place for these homes not to sell in 2016. Buyers have so much data at their hands these three aspects must be on point to get to get a home sold in today's market. Really the only issue in 2016 was the lack of inventory available in the community.
