Is Vista the new emerging area for luxury homes?

quails_trail_rd_891_11_23146_mlsSan Diego – July 11, 2016 – When you think about Vista housing, your first thought might not be million dollar estates.  Think again because there are some gorgeous, custom, luxury, homes and estates in Vista that appeal to the most discriminating buyer.

And it’s in demand.

In fact, the highest priced home in Vista (area codes 92081, 92083, 92084) this year sold for was for $1,400,000.00 by Gini De Armas of Windermere Homes & Estates. The average DOM (days on market) for a home listed in Vista above $1 million dollars is 92 days. Gini, through her connection, was able to find a buyer for the home within a week and the home closed escrow 30 days later. It was never even “on the market”, making this transaction hassle-free for both the buyer and the seller.

“It’s not every day that you get an agent who is ready to bring so much knowledge to the table and has so many connections within the industry. Gini is a constant leader in the real estate market, she goes above and beyond to meet her client’s expectations and it is truly a great honor to have such top-level talent working with us,” Brian Gooding, co-owner.

This luxury 4,245 sq/ft Vista home with 5+ bedrooms is located in the gated community of Quails Ranch, a special niche community with about 35+ homes total. This home boasts luscious landscape, gorgeous views, fruit trees, elaborate outdoor entertainment living area with pool, fire pits, courtyards and fountains. Additional elaborate features of this executive home include a newly built luxury 400+ sq/ft home office, a state-of-the-art sound room, wine cellar, game room and enclosed RV parking.

150053418-20“Gini is a highly accomplished real estate agent. She is one of our Premier Properties Directors and specializes in luxury real estate. She is the #1 go-to realtor® to talk to if you are thinking of buying or selling in Vista and surrounding areas. She has extensive knowledge of the area and its communities,” says co-owner Rich Johnson.

Although the average price of homes sold in Vista since the beginning of the year is $511,527 up 7% over last year, Vista is an emerging market with some great luxury home options. If you are looking for a luxury estate with more amenities, more land and for a more reasonable price point than San Diego’s coastal areas, Vista just might be the place to go.

On June 3rd, 2016 Windermere Homes & Estates will be closing their offices to volunteer to help families with children who are being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions.

Community Service DayWindermere Homes & Estates is reaching out to Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego to volunteer time and give much needed donations to help families with children who are being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions. Windermere’s real estate agents, brokers, clients and staff have been donating essential items to help these families in all of their 13 offices throughout Southern California.

On June 3rd, Windermere will be wrapping up their fundraiser/donation drive and volunteering their time at the Ronald McDonald House. Our owners, agents and employees will volunteer their time to prep, serve and clean-up breakfast and lunch, as well as, volunteering their services for craft time and an ice cream social. Windermere volunteers also made blankets and collected items for Ronald McDonald House Charites of San Diego to give to guests during their stay.
Every year Windermere Homes & Estates closes their office to volunteer and help make a positive difference in our community. This is a part of Windermere’s company-wide Community Service Day event in which all 300 offices and 7,000 agents will spend the day giving back to local communities. Windermere offices from Seattle to SoCal will donate more than 55,000 hours of service during this year’s event. “Windermere’s Community Service Day started in 1984 with my dad, John Jacobi, a handful of agents, and a run-down chain-link fence at an elementary school that needed some TLC,” said company president, OB Jacobi. “Thirty-two years and more than 1.2 million hours of community service later, we’ve continued this tradition through neighborhood-enhancing projects in the areas where our Windermere teams live, work, and play.”

Every time a Windermere sales associate sells a home, they donate a portion of their commission to the Windermere Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 1989. Contributions from Windermere agents combined with contributions from Windermere employees and public supporters have allowed the Windermere Foundation to distribute over two million dollars annually in recent years to non-profit agencies dedicated to helping the local community.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego provides a “home away from home” for families with children being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions at local hospitals. Thanks to an active volunteer program and generous community support, each year approximately:

• 1,400 families reside with us during their child’s hospitalization
• 11,000 additional people use our Family Care Center, coming for meals, computer access, and other essential resources
• 130,000 meals are served free of charge to family members with hospital identification
