Rancho Santa Fe Luxury Real Estate values rose this year in the second quarter of 2014 in San Diego with values up 1.1% from the first quarter, and 9.4% year-over-year.
This rise can be attributed to “robust demand, continued low interest rates and limited inventory,” according to Katherine August-deWilde, President of First Republic Bank.
“In the most desirable neighborhoods in coastal California”, she continued, “luxury properties often sell for over the asking price and with multiple offers. Overall, the market for higher-end homes remains very strong.”
With upscale shopping and dining, an active community center, and pristine golf courses, Rancho Santa Fe in particular offers its residents a plethora of amenities whether they be provided by the city itself or through its various private gated communities.
Rancho Santa Fe gives homeowners the ability to own a lot of land, spread out, and still live by the coast. Not surprisingly, it is a majority of San Diego residents who are property shopping in Santa Fe.
