I guess this is a bit of curiosity plus no brainer type question based on last post:
For context, I am a buyer and looking at OH, Portola Springs and GP
What is the attraction of OH Reserve in general? It's more expensive, it's in a way more fire hazardous zone, and it isn't like you can't get similar houses outside of the gated OH?
So what is it that makes people want to buy there? Resale value? Gated community? Safety?
Curious to hear others thoughts here.
I don't live in OH reserves, and I also think Ravello is overpriced but:
OH reserves-->gated + IUSD (Northwood high) + views in some tracts.
Portola has IUSD and views in some areas, but no gate. portola is similar fire hazard zone
OH Groves has gated + views (some tracts) but TUSD, not IUSD (which some people care about)
GP houses are a completely different style, which may not appeal to certain buyers. also the taxes are really high
some people just prioritize having a gate (especially a manned guard gate). I used to think it didn't matter, but recently there's an increase in break-ins, mail theft, package theft, random outsiders driving into neighborhoods casing the joint, and having a guard gate seems like it does cut down on that.
