Late June -- Early July
Hidden Meadows has a cold market – 92128 in Rancho Bernardo has a normally warm market.
Location, location, location.
Basically, Jean and I get 10 times the number of prospects touring an Open House than we do in Hidden Meadows, and in each case that traffic is about 1/10th what it was just two yars ago.
Both of the inventories (Hidden meadows and 92128 RB) are the highest in modern history. There is a slight difference in the demographics and psycographics of prospects. RB where the prospects are younger, and many are renters.
Obviously, the younger crowd have an incentive – the Poway Unified School District, which is very good. (Only by California standards!)
We in Hidden Meadows don’t have either a cadre of nearby renters, or an internal and huge industrial center, or an education district to which people are willing to move to help their children. Consequently, in spite of our idyllic lifestyle we enjoy, we are limited to those who happen to find our community through a round of golf, or while visiting friends.
We now have a large inventory in the Meadows, and we do not have even a “normal” numbers o0f people looking for a home.
And, we have a disproportionate number of vacant homes on the market.
This portends lower prices.
