Every year at this time, many local homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.
Seven great reasons not to wait:
Relocation buyers are out there. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays and need their employees in their new positions as soon as possible.
Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now.
You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.
Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
There is less competition for you as a seller right now.
If you’re thinking of selling, whether it’s this Fall/Winter or next year, please let me know! With so little inventory on the market, many buyers are still looking for homes so if it’s the right time for you to make a move now, I’m here to help! If you’re planning to move in the new year, it’s never too early to get started preparing your home for sale.

San Elijo Hills Towncenter Update from San Elijo Hills Development Company & Ambient Communities
Dear San Elijo Hills Residents,
As an update to last year’s town hall meeting (during which we shared the designs that you’ve seen reflected on the banners in the Towncenter), we are happy to report that we have been working cooperatively with Ambient Communities, and the City of San Marcos toward finalized designs and approvals for the second phase of San Elijo Hills Towncenter.
In that effort, we are very hopeful to receive a Site Development Permit before the end of March. Assuming we and the City are able to meet this important milestone, we intend to process the Precise Improvement Plans starting in March so that we can begin grading by early June. Vertical construction is planned for September, with the first shops opening their doors around April of 2018.
Ambient has been actively considering leasing interest for the past many months and looks forward to announcing the first businesses by mid-Summer of this year. A sincere thank you to many of you who have referred the Towncenter to businesses you would like to see open shop here in your community.
As we progress over the next several months, we will continue to provide updates to our efforts and refinements to these anticipated timelines.

The San Elijo Hills’ neighborhood features expansive ocean views and estate-style amenities and architecture
San Elijo Hills is celebrating the grand opening of The Estates at San Elijo Hills by Davidson Communities, Saturday, Jan. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with performances by the Double Peak School Jazz Band and other festivities.
“The Estates at San Elijo Hills by Davidson Communities do justice to their stately name,” said Halé Richardson, marketing director for San Elijo Hills Development Company. “ They are grand in every sense of the word: huge gourmet kitchens (some with a secondary prep kitchen), spacious indoor-outdoor entertainment spaces, courtyards, morning rooms, covered loggias, optional outdoor sleeping porches, casitas and expansive views of the Pacific coastline and rolling hills.”
The Estates offer 58 single-family residences in variety of flexible floorplans, ranging from 4,581 to 6,322 square feet with up to seven bedrooms. The gated neighborhood showcases distinctive architecture in Spanish-, Tuscan-, Monterey- and French Country-inspired styles. Homes are priced from the $1 millions. Three beautifully decorated models are located at 956 Pearl Drive, San Marcos. For information, call (760) 566-8994.
One other new neighborhood is currently available, The Summit at San Elijo Hills, located adjacent to Double Peak Park, the highest point in coastal North County. The Summit features 44 luxuriously scaled residences on large homesites. Five floorplans, ranging from 3,070 to 4,965 square feet with three to seven bedrooms and 3.5 to 7.5 baths, are offered with an amazing array of options.
These architecturally significant floorplans feature stunning indoor-outdoor configurations, offering walls of glass and doors that retract. Homes at this gated neighborhood are priced from the low $1 millions. For information, contact (760) 653-7010.
Children at both The Summit and The Estates will attend the brand new Double Peak School, which opened last fall.
“San Elijo Hills has saved the best for last,” said Richardson. ‘These neighborhoods offer unsurpassed architectural splendor and panoramic views of the ocean and rolling hills,” she said.
San Elijo Hills is an established 1,920-acre community that integrates shopping, homes, schools, and recreation within an ecologically sensitive plan that sets aside more than half of the property as protected open space and parks.
