Lake Forest Real Estate and Homes for Sale

Lake Forest, CA mixes new and fairly new housing with its older neighborhoods to produce a handsome city shaded by and graced with tall eucalyptus trees. In 2000, Lake Forest annexed the new neighborhoods of Portola Hills and Foothill Ranch and increased its size by 2,700 acres and its housing stock by 6,100 units, the great majority of which are single family detached and attached condos. Lake Forest is encouraging these neighborhoods to keep their identities and zip codes. For this reason, you will read about homes for sale in Portola Hills and Foothill Ranch, or what's happening in these communities, but they are now part of Lake Forest. A Library opened in Foothill Ranch in 2003, and includes community room and computer stations. Portola Hills, after waiting 3 years, got a park in 2002.

Lake Forest (El Toro) started in the early 1960's, with about 200 homes. Suburbia arrived in that decade in the form of 2,000 residential units. The next decade brought about 9,200 homes, condominiums and apartments. In the 1980's, about 8,100 residential units were built - all under the county government, since the town at that time was not incorporated. In late 1980's, Lake Forest, CA residents pushed for Cityhood and were successful. In the 1990's, Lake Forest constructed about 1,100 homes and then annexed Portola Hills and Foothill Ranch. The state in 2005 counted 26,385 housing units in Lake Forest, comprising of 14,166 single detached, 3,923 single attached, 7,010 multiples and 1,286 mobile homes. Over 80 percent of its homes, apartments and condos were built in the last 25-30 years.

Suzie helped sell my home in January. Ms Bindi brings great energy and enthusiasm. Suzie and her team had my home on the market within days meeting her and over the first weekend she had four full price offers on my home. Suzie made this process every easy and to my surprise had our home in escrow within 2 weeks. Suzie also arranged to have one of her buyer agents help me with the purchase of my new home. Thanks again the Bindi Team."
