Portola Hills Halloween Contest

It's that time of year.. the kiddos will be out and about and excited to see your home decorated in the Halloween spirit.  I have lived  and worked in Portola Hills since 1995 and I have always loved how the neighbors come together to make it enjoyable for the kids.   We use to have many driveway fire-pits and haunted garages as the kids walked the neighborhood! In that spirit we are hosting a fun contest on our Portola Hills Living Facebook Page.   It's super simple too!   1. Take a picture of your home.. day or night whatever shows off your decorations the best.    2.  Post your picture on our Portola Hills Living Page ... or send me a picture direct and I will upload for you. That's it... On Halloween, we will enter everyone who posted a picture into a drawing and randomly select the winner.  Seriously even if you have just a simple decoration as pumpkins in the yard... send a picture!! So what's the prize!!   A $50.00 Home Depot Gift Card!

September Portola Hills Home Values..

It is an absolute beautiful day in Portola Hills this October 3rd..  A nice fall day.. with temps cooling a bit from the September warmth.    This is a great analogy for the real estate market in Portola Hills.  We expect things to cool down but comparing the numbers it continued to be pretty hot.. just like the September weather. Below is a snapshot of how the real estate market performed last month. For the overall market Portola Hills saw a 10% increase in home values from September 2015.   For the condo market the top selling home was 3 bedroom 1300 square foot Canyon Rim condo that sold for $490,000.  On the Single Family Detached side the highest priced home that sold was a 5 bedroom, 3400 Square Foot Crown Pointe Home that sold for $1,010,000.   (On a side note the Crown Pointe home was a flip bought as a short sale earlier in the year.) Currently there are 12 active listings on the market ranging in price for a 2 bedroom/900 square foot condo priced at $359
