Weird.  I've noticed that Redfin is getting more "proprietary" with their data. With the account I do have it sends me "Coming Soon" listings, and you used to see those on the general Redfin site without an account. No longer. When I get a "coming soon" e-mail and look at the regular site without logging in, that "coming soon" is nowhere to be found.

May just need to open a free Redfin account and use that whenever possible.

Realtor.com has more sales history and will show list prices that are blocked or changed on Redfin.

you got Bluffs 2 right? at $637 per sqft this attached condo in WBE costs more per sqft than Bluffs 2 in Portola Springs? it is absurd…Bluffs is newer, detached, 1 extra bedroom, real backyard…they feed into the same middle and high schools, and I would argue WBE is in a worst location than PS (between Sand Canyon and 133, and that big ass water tower is so close…)

If you scroll down the page, Redfin shows most of the data you'd want. It's sometimes helpful to look in the "tax"/"sales history" tab.

The cringe-est realtorspeak for me is "nestled". No idea why, but I can't read listings with the word.

Well, it doesn't show the data that I want to see the most, listing price and photos.  :P

I got Bluffs 2, yes. The purchase price put it close to $600/sq ft. But once we're done with all the upgrades, it would be close to $650/sq ft. And we actually have a pretty good size backyard, 27' and 37' to the back wall, quite a bit bigger than most homes in Bluffs. I can't say if WBE or PS is better, but my wife loves PS, so that's great enough for us. ;D

still it is attached vs detached.....and this is like the worse kind of attached. close to condo...for example, above this plan'3 garage is plan 1's living areas.

I like PS if you don't mind (or actually prefer) the remoteness. WBE is more central to Woodbury Town center and freeway access so it is more convenient.

Attached condo like this one is going for 790 per sqt. So yes, prices are crazy all over. Buy  now or miss out forever!

this is different attached product though. only shared 1 wall with the neighbor and you have real backyard. plus it is in Eastwood, newer village and zoned to better schools, no low income housing and apartments. but $790 for attached is still yikes and I would rather go with detached offerings in PS.

Do you think Portola Springs is any less hot? Not even a complete SFR sold for $500k higher than asking.. Yes, 0.5million higher than asking

$645 per sq ft.

I don't like the flooring.

I would rather buy Ravello 2.

The other one for me is "boasts".  I prefer my housing have some humility.

Over $750/sf for this property?  Buyers are sure getting desperate with the lack of inventory.

That was in the days when Portola Springs was dissed by most on TI. Now PS is a great place to buy.

I think PS and EW have had the best ROI in the last one year
