The Home Owner's New Favorite
“I just immigrated to LA, where should I buy I first home?” “Which residential area is beautiful, safe, and has better school district, and the house value will appreciate fast, too?” These are the common questions brought up by many homebuyers. Let me explain to you how and why Chino Hills is the new hottest thing in the selling market.
Chinese immigrants are considered minority in United States. For new immigrants, it’s easier and much more comforting to live around the existing Chinese community, especially, during the process of adjusting to the cultural shock and differences. Gradually, the Asian population formed the “west side” including the cities of Monterey Park, Alhambra, Rosemead, Arcadia, and Pasadena…during the earlier migration period. The “east side” formed later started out in Rowland Heights, and then spreads out to Hacienda Heights, Diamond Bar, and Walnut…
However, the “east side” rapidly reached its population cap with the growth of Asian community. Therefore, Chino Hills, which is located conveniently between LA and OC and belonged to the San Bernardino County, suddenly grabbed the attentions of all potential homebuyers.
If you fell in love with Diamond Bar’s endless green hills and trees, you will definitely fall in love again with Chino Hills' infinite valleys. If it is the exceptional schools that made the Walnut school district so charming, then your kids will do even better in one of academically awarded schools in the proud Chino Hills school district.
In fact, since 1991, in merely ten years, the population of Chino Hills went from 27,000 to 66,000. The success of the city had to attribute to the wonderful city planning by the city government. For example, the city has a vast 12,500 square feet of just green lawns, reserved solely for recreation areas. This means the residents of Chino Hills will wake up every morning, open their eyes knowing that the beautiful trees, lawns, park will never become business buildings or some factories.
Another one of Chino Hill’s greatest accomplishment will be its exceptional schooling. As the upper middle class moving in, comes with highly educated parents who value the importance of good fundamental schools. Since the Asian population growth in the city, the fine elementary, junior and high schools has reached its highest academy level ever, very compatible with our national standards.
The low crime rate also lured many people to the city. LA is known for our drive-by, gang related problems. Couple years ago, the murder committed by Rio Hondo student to another student was just startling. Schools are important to our children; also, safety is also a big concern for our children and our family. When you purchase a house, your dream home, you would want to it to be located in a city of greenness, quietness, and friendly neighbors.
Now that we have established why people fall in love with Chino Hills, let me let you in another secret—Chino Hills is affordable too! Within the last five years, the medium house value has grown 10%, which has a higher growth than any other surrounding city. However, among the surrounding city, houses in Chino Hills are still significantly cheaper--the average price of a single home in Chino Hill--about $280,000, is still much lower than its neighboring cities, such as Diamond Bar (average price of $360,000). Plus the fact that most houses in Chino Hills were constructed after 1988, to buy a house here is buying a dream home and smart investment. No wonder everyone is eyeing the young city!
