Lake Forest Most Expensive Homes 2015
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.
