Good morning Michael. The Villa Corona condos seem to follow you area pattern. High demand but low turnover. Thanks for the update. Enjoy your day!

Michael Jacobs The price points for the Villa Corona Community are just a bit too far out of reach for me. I still would opt for a floating home with laundry dangling from a stick in the air. Oh! Back to your subject: The architectural style is appealing and clearly many love living there. Great post!

Sounds like they don't come up for sale very often, so buyers better go and check out the one that is currently for sale!

I like the style of Villas Corona Condos. One level living is a bonus for many, and this complex could be the answer for a lucky buyer.

Hi Michael - When inventory is scarce, it's time to get some expert help, and there's simply no better choice for anyone in the Pasadena area than you - your extensive knowledge of what's happening in the market extends down to the individual complex level and makes your expertise a highly valuable resource.

Hi Michael, it may be challenging to be a buyer  due to low inventory of homes and condos in the Pasadena CA area unless they're working with a great real estate agent like you. As always, you've provided great information on the Villa Corona single level condos in Pasadena CA.

At last there is one condo at the Villa Corona, and I think the location near Cal Tech is an ideal one.  Anyone wanting to find a condo whether it is at Villa Corona or elsewhere in Pasadena should be talking to you.  A
