In 2014 the highest priced golf course frontage home was on Avenida Calma, selling at $1,550,000 but only came to $369 a square foot because of it’s size. This year, the highest priced golf course frontage was a small home on Avenda Feliz that sold for $1,332,500 ending at $666 per square foot.

Whispering Palms Golf Course Home sold for $1,200,000 May of 2015.

Whispering Palms Golf Course Home sold for $1,200,000 May of 2015.

What these numbers reflect is that buyers are re-evaluating the value of the open space, peaceful views of living in a “nature preserve” as our Morgan Run Golf course. My personal predication is that the price on the golf course homes are going to continue to rise as the demand increases for living in Whispering Palms on the golf course.

After the sale I have had a handful of buyers come to me and comment that this home, at this price is exactly what they are looking for. My advice to all is if  one is looking for a home that is going to be sold quickly

1)Find a Realtor in the neighborhood who lives there, knows the neighbors and can make some inquries on homes that are not on the market yet.

2) Get pre-qualified, pre approved and have that letter ready to submit with your offer.

3) Have your lender in place and be ready to move quickly with an offer if a home comes on the market in the morning…to make an offer and act on it within hours.

With these pro active steps…you will be ahead of the game when that special home with tremendous value comes on the market unexpectedly.

Whispering Palms Golf Course Home Sells Below Market Value.

3912 Via Valle Verde sells in Whispering Palms for $1,143,516.

This Whispering Palms Home at 3912 Via Valle Verde Sold For $1,143,516.

This Whispering Palms Home at 3912 Via Valle Verde Sold For $1,143,516.

A single story home on Via Valle Verde in Whispering Palms closed last week at a diappointing sales price of $1,143,516. In the remarkes on the MLS it states the effective sales price was $1,165,000. However, that is still over a 20% difference from its original listing price of $1,445,000 in February of this year.

The home has the added value of being a single story home with over 2,000 square feet and a unique golf course view on hole 4 north watching the golfers golf “to the property” and not “by the property”. It was my surmise that the uniqness of the homes view would help it sell in the mid to high $1.2 mil

 

range which would reflect the trend of golf course frontage homes that are moving into the $600 per square foot range.

I sent out to all homeowners a fact sheet of all the condos, townhomes and homes that sold in 2014 in Whispering Palms  and the sales per square foot.

If you did not receive one, email me and I would be happy to send a copy to you.

Here are more photos of this listing:

Whispering Palms Home on Via Pacifica Just Listed For $875,000

A new Whispering Palms listing came on the market this morning on Via Pacifica. Those who have lived in the neighborhood remember fondly Milt Reimers who moved here with his wife from Glendora to Whispering Palms in 70’s.  Milt Reimer and his late wife were an integral part of the development of The Whispering Palms Community Council and forming the wonderful neighborhood that we have today.

The home is listed well below market price. In 2014 the average price per square foot of golf course frontage sales where $511 which would put this home at a current market value $936,000. That does not include the slight increase of price in 2015 that we have seen year to date.

My estimation is that there will be a flurry of activity with multiple offers above listing price  and will go into escrow over the weekend. If you would like to  have a private showing,  It would be my pleasure to show it to you. Please call The Biszantz Connection at 619-417-4655 and one of use will be happy to meet you on the property.

Alcala Townhome in Whispering Palms Finally Sells For Lower Than Average Price.

Single Story Alcala Townhome Sells at Record Low Price at $710,000 after several Realtors efforts.

Alcala Gated Entry at Whispering Palms.

Alcala Gated Entry at Whispering Palms.

An Alcala Unit behind the gates in Whispering Palms sold yesterday at a one of the lowest prices in a few years in Alcala. 16014 Via Galan sold was a covented single story unit and sold for $710,000. This unit was well appointed, had high celings with a privatet fenced in back yard  and had betwee 1,500-1,800 in interior living space. These single unit Alcala units are highly coveted because their are not many of them.

Alcala was designed and built in the late 1980’s by Bill Davidson/Davidson Communities of Rancho Santa Fe. The project is charecterized by a mediterranean feel, lush landscaping, meandering walkways throughout the project adn beautiful lighting at night and georgious fountains. Davidson Communities won the presitgious “Blue Orchid Award” for its design and build qualities.

In the past year a new president of the HOA has taken over  at a time where a local developer is developing a strip mall style project adjacent to Alcala. This has some Alcala owners very nervious because the strip mall will have apartments on top of them that will have stairway that will shine lights over the seperation wall, right into the eastern Alcala owners homes.

The new president touts openly that he is friends with the neighboring developmer Richard Cavenaugh and not to be worried. Dropping sales prices and a spike in units going up for sale is a telltale sign, residents are thinking otherewise!

Theses are the types of reasons why you need a good Realtor who is knowledgable of an area when searching for a home. If you would like to look in the Whispering Palms area, please don’t hesitate to call myself, Shannon Biszantz at 619-417-4655.

Thank you,

Whispering Palms Villas 1 Sells on Golf Course

Whispering Palms Villas 1 Sells on Golf Course

A town home in Whispering Palms recently closed escrow on 9 North. Villas 1 town homes on the golf course for sale are getting more scarse to find for sale due to the small amount of them that were built in the 1960’s. This one at 127 Via Coronado was in a trust for sale. The Via Coronado property is a two story, 3 bedrooms and 3 bath home with a quaint courtyard in the back and a beutiful front vista of the 9th hole on the North Course at Morgan Run.

127 Via Coronado was listed at the end of the summer at approximately $780,000 and sat on the market while the Real Estate economy slowed down. It finally sold, considerably less than the asking price at $670,000 according to title records. This unit has not been noted as closed on the MLS as of 12/29/2014.

Whispering Palms is a subdivision in the unincorporated area of Rancho Santa Fe on Via De La Valle. Morgan Run Country Club is at the heart of the subdivision, lending Whispering Palms Area to have  a more “resort feel” than other areas in Rancho Santa Fe. Residents can easily walk to golf, practice facilities, spa, gym, restaraunt and hotel at Morgan Run.

Villas 1 in Whispering Palms was the first buit “common area owned” complex built in California. For more information on The Vilas click here: http://www.discoverwhisperingpalms.com/developments/villas-i-development/
