A Walk Through Concourse Park in Portola Hills

One aspect of the community of Portola Hills in Lake Forest that stands out the best is the location.    Portola Hills is located in the east end of South Orange County at the foothills of the Saddleback Mountains.   Which offers a beautiful environment for all residents. At the top of the community is a lovely community park, Concourse Park.  The park offers a wide range of amenities, that include: Two Picnic Areas, Kids Play Area, Basketball Court, Walking Path, Restrooms and plenty of Open Area.  But I think what residence like the most is that it sits at the entrance of Whiting Wilderness Park.   We took a walk recently and wanted to share with  you some photos of why we enjoy the park so much!

Portola Hills April Home Values

It's May, yes May and the Portola Hills real estate market is moving along at quick pace.  April in general is a quiet month for real estate and this can be seen with only 4 homes closing escrow in April.   However, we did see an increase in the number of new listings that came on the market.  Currently there are 8 active properties on the market. Below is a our monthly snapshot info-graphic for Portola Hills.   Overall inventory levels in South Orange County are extremely low.   We did have a jump in new listings in April, but they are selling quicker than new homes coming on the market.  The average days on the market in April was 11.   Buyer demand is very high, especially for the condo market and homes priced under the median price of $700,000.  If you are thinking of a move, now is a great time to take advantage of the low inventory and get top dollar for your home.   Let's grab a cup of
