Lake Forest California is a great community located in South Orange County California.  It encompasses 29 different nieghbhorhoods currently and is expanding with new neighbhorhoods, such as Baker Ranch and Portola Center.   

With the real estate market improving over the last year it is great to see the areas largest homes start to sell once again over the $1m market.  Below is a highest price homes that have sold so far in 2015. 

Lake Forest Most Expensive Homes 2015

Lake Forest Most Expensive Homes

When looking at the above listings it is important to note the two neighborhoods where these higher end sales took place, Baker Ranch and Portola Hills!

Baker Ranch is a new community of homes that was introduced to the commuunity in 2014.   Currently Baker Ranch has 6 new communities.

Potola Hills is a more established neighborhood on the east end of Lake Forest. Early 2016 new homes will be introduced in Potola Hills as part of the Portola Center, the first introduction being The Oaks which will be a gated Luxury Estate neighborhood off of Glenn Ranch and Saddleback Ranch.

 

When new homes are being introduced to a community, often times it makes residents a bit nervous; will it fit into our current neighborhood?  What will it do to propery values, etc?  All good questions to be asked.  If you look at the price per square foot of the homes above, you can see the better value in pricing is in the Portola Hills area.


When buying in Portola Hills you are getting more home for your $$ than buying new.  So it is important to take into cosideration as you compare the two communities.   Now I certainly undertand we all love NEW but other details to take into consideration is going to be space, lot size, location and interior amentities. Homeowners who are considering selling their established homes and  have location, upgrades, amenities and views, etc should have no issue recieving top dollar for their home in todays competetive market.

It is also important to note both of these communities have access to what is best about Lake Forest. Great Shopping, Restauarants, Entertainment, Award Winning Schools, plus world class outdoor lifestyle with a new award winning Lake Forest sports park and Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park.

Kelly Turbeville - looks like Lake Forest is an affluent community with few of the homes sold over a million dollars! Good Luck selling more homes there.

Those appear to be very attrative places to live. Newer homes in close proximity to quality schools is a great combination for attracting home buyers. It looks like your area has the winning combination, Kelly.
