2014 Market Update

 

Woodlands Gated Community ArcadiaThis is a market update for real estate activity in Woodlands a gated community in Arcadia, California.   Statistical information contained within this report is from our multiple listing service(mls) and may not include all sales.

 

Woodlands is a 125 home development built in 2002 by Greystone Homes.  The two story homes range in approximate square footages from 1800 to 2400 according to builder estimates.   Public tax assessor records reflect somewhat high square footages.  Unlike other areas of Southern California, there are a limited number of gated single family communities within the West San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County.

 

Arcadia Gated CommunityThe Arcadia gated community is professionally managed and has a recreation center with a pool, spa and barbecue area.

 

Woodlands is close to the San Gabriel River(605) and Foothill(210) freeways as well as the proposed Gold Line light rail stations in Monrovia and Irwindale.   Monrovia schools serve this community.

There were four mls-reported Woodlands home sales in 2014.  They ranged from $650,000 to $685,000 with an average sales price of $671,472 (median sales price $675,444).  They sold at 98.93% of last list price and for a very affordable $296.48 per square foot on average.   

 

Woodlands Gated Community in ArcadiaFor the same twelve month period in 2013, there were five sales. Those mls-reported transactions ranged from $570,000 to $699,000 with an average sales price of $633,800(median price $630,000).   They sold at 103.16% of last list price and for $289.13 per square foot.   

 

Arcadia Gated CommunityWhile the fervor in the market may have subsided a bit from 2013 to 2014, you can see the average and median sales prices continued to climb as has the average price per square foot. When dealing with a number of sales that is relatively low, closer examination of a listing price strategy for homeowners thinking of selling and an offer price for potential buyers will be necessary.   

 

While I can’t predict what the future holds in 2015(or anytime for that matter) I can share my experience and knowledge of the market trends and if you are thinking of a move in the West San Gabriel Valley, let’s discuss what is important to you.  I can be reached at 818.516.4393 cell.  I look forward to assisting you.

The Woodlands sound similar to many Austin neighborhood locked behind their gated community. Even thought the sales have slowed with the exception of prices rising I'm sure many homeowners will be calling you to sell their homes in The Woodlands.

What do you mean you can't predict the future? :) 

Buyers and sellers need to give you a call for their real estate needs if they hope to buy or sell in The Woodlands. You would be the best guide available with your experience, expertise and vast knowledge of the market place. What you don't know can hurt you.

Endre Barath, Jr. - you're right, it's rare to find a gated community with such affordable (relatively speaking) homes of this size in the West San Gabriel Valley.

Thanks very much, Belinda Spillman.

Bob Ratliff, Broker Associate - REALTOR® 512-587-5689 - I know that gated communities are a part of many areas in the country and the majority of the areas I practice, they are not as prevalent.  

Thanks, Lou Ludwig.

While the weather is overcast today, that pool at Woodlands would have been a nice spot this weekend with our temps in the low 80s, Sharon Lee.
