A Rainy Saturday in Portola Hills

Yesterday we had what seems like a rare encounter these days, rain!  With the current drought in California, I don' think this made any difference other than in bringing a little comfort to our lawns and I will have to say our souls. But it sure was nice to see!  I don't know about you but we hunkered down, made a big crock pot of chicken chili, watched movies and enjoyed the day looking forward to a little green the rain will bring to the Saddleback Mountains. Hope you got to enjoy the day too!

Portola Hills Home Sales for the First Quarter in 2015

Can you believe it, the calendar has hit April!!  That means we are officially into the second quarter of the year.  In real estate terms this is when the selling season really begins to take off.  Here in Portola Hills, the first quarter started off slow.. inventory remained light from the new year on, but as of this post it has started to pick up with 5 new homes listed this week. Take a look at what sold so far this year! Portola Hills Homes Sales Jan-March 2015 With 5 new listings active this week, it always makes me wonder why homes sellers wait to sell later in spring when the competition is more.  The rule of supply and demand certainly prevails in real estate.  Low Inventory and High Buyer Demand make early spring the best time to get top dollar on your home. The good news for Portola Hills, it is a sought after neighborhood, offering a great school, great selection of homes from condo's to estates and best of all it is tucked away close to the Saddleback Mountai
