Casitas de Avila: European Influence at Otay Ranch

by racheal

Casitas de Avila at Otay Ranch

Since opening in 1999, Otay Ranch has been one of the fastest growing communities of San Diego new homes. Located on the east end of the upscale city of Chula Vista, Otay Ranch has been San Diego County’s top selling planned community, quarter after quarter. What makes it so popular?

Perhaps it’s the prestige and promise that a 5,300 acre community offers homeowners. Maybe it’s the pedestrian friendliness. Who knows, for sure? One thing we do know is that Casitas de Avila is one of its newest, most talked-about neighborhoods. In this enclave of Chula Vista new homes, the European influence is clearly communicated through the architecture, craftsmanship, and even floorplans of the Casitas de Avila homes.

How so? The Spanish influence is apparent inside and out, with features like romantic balconies, shady porches, sculpted stucco and wood details – oh, and did we mention a three story floorplan option? That’s right! Talk about European. Plus, anywhere from three to seven bedrooms await you when you make Casitas de Avila your home.

If the new homes at Casitas de Avila sound like your kind of community, or Otay Ranch in general sounds like something you’d like to check out, contact a knowledgeable new home consultant by way of this contact form. They’ll be glad to show you around the neighborhood!

by racheal

Chula Vista new homes at Villas de Avila

Anyone can own a two story home (and many people do). But when you own a three story home, heads turn....friends act impressed…in short, people notice. Of course, status isn’t the only reason you may wish to own a three story home; your family may indeed want that extra floor for space and privacy. But is it possible to buy a three story home if you aren’t the richest man on the block? Sure it is, when you buy your home in Villas de Avila, from Pacific Coast Communities.

It’s true: These Chula Vista new homes offer a three story floorplan! The Villa Four
residences have two choices of plans, to be specific: one that features 1,830 square feet, four to six bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a two-car garage; and another, with 2,250 square feet, a whopping six bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a two-car garage.
Of course, if you aren’t necessarily sold on the three story home concept, Villas de Avila still has something for you. The Villa One and Villa Three residences each feature two story floorplans, with your choice of three or four bedrooms and lots of spaciousness to boot.

Either way, these Chula Vista new homes, just minutes from San Diego, are worth taking a look at. Visit the Villas de Avila new homes for sale  at 1556 Corte Barcelona, Chula Vista, CA 91913; or, call the friendly consultants at (619) 565-2635.

Best Practices for Finding a New Home

by racheal

Crosby Villas New Homes in Rancho Santa FeSure, there are best practices for homebuilders, home sellers (as in real estate agents), and homebuyers…but what if you’re simply a home seeker? In other words, you’re a prospective homebuyer who’s still looking at homes to determine what’s best for your family? There are best practices for you, too. California West Communities, who developed popular communities of Rancho Santa Fe new homes like Crosby Villas, lays out some best practices methods for determining your:

Location: The experts at Crosby Villas expert you suggest a location that has the amenities, schools and overall environment that you feel comfortable in. You may want to visit several places at different times of the day, and even talk to local residents to get a feel for the area.” This can be a great way to decide whether you like the neighbors, too.

Needs: The experts tell us that when considering the purchase of any home, the needs of your family are paramount. If a home meets one or more major needs of your family, there are times that a higher cost may be worth it. Also consider whether the floorplan fits your lifestyle, in terms of the number of children you have, their ages, etc.

Crosby Villas New Home Kitchen


First and foremost: Are they in good standing with their owners? Crosby Villas consultants recommend asking friends who have used the homebuilder about their own level of satisfaction, no matter how long they have been living in that builder’s home. Another idea is to check local and/or national news stories to look deeper into a builder’s reputation (Googling is the easiest way).

For more tips on best practices for home seekers, ask California West Communities about their Rancho Santa Fe new homes. Crosby Villas can be viewed by appointment by calling (858) 759-7911 Monday noon to 5 pm, or Tuesday through Sunday 10 am to 5 pm to request details.
