Drone at Robertson Ranch

Robertson RanchThose who live near the new Sage Creek High School in north Carlsbad will have another large new-home tract beginning shortly.  The West Village of Robertson Ranch was recently acquired by Toll Brothers, and they expect to be selling new homes there in 2015.

Shapell Homes purchased the acreage for $30+ million in 2010 from the Robertson family. At the time, they said they would build:

Single-family homes ranging from 1,800 to 4,000 square feet and townhomes from about 1,400 to 1,800 square feet. A senior housing project, probably for rent, also is expected.

If you are thinking of selling a home that is close to Tamarack/Cannon and El Camino Real, you may want to consider selling this year when there is less competiton!

Here is a tour of the area:

More Drone

If I lose the drone, ”too bad, you’re not getting another one.”

There was some real panic today when I lost the wi-fi connection – which also terminated the camera feed – while the drone was over the lagoon.  For a moment, I was thinking about going for a swim!

Saturday Open House Report

orangeThere were enough open houses in the area that the streets of Encinitas were crawling with people today.  Thankfully, my listing was the cheapest!

I appreciate the big turnout for Padres-tickets contest too, and for 47 of the 48 guesses being higher than list price - thanks for your faith and confidence!

Here’s my open-house report, check back tomorrow:

We’ve seen some comps recently which may give some guidance, but all are a fair distance away.

1. This is still showing as an active listing on the MLS:

2. The $815,000 fixer that received two offers and went pending within 3 days:

We’ll be having open house this weekend, 12-3 pm, so come by for a look!

Leave your guess of the eventual sales price in the comment section, and the closest will four tickets near the visitors dugout.

I don’t have season tickets, but a great friend helped me out.  The contest winner will be able to choose one game with either the Marlins, Cubs, Reds, Cardinals, Rockies, or Giants.  If one of those is your favorite team, you’d enjoy these seats overlooking the visitor’s dugout, plus the visiting-team’s owner seats are right in front of you.

This is from Opening Night, taken from the seats - Stan Kastens, president of the Dodgers, is the bald guy at the bottom-right with the rest of Dodger ownership:
