    Vila Borba Housing Development

    Standard Pacific Homes

    Vila Borba Site Map

    Vila Borba (Tentative Tract Maps 15989; 16413; 16338; 16414) is located west and east of Butterfield Ranch Road, near Pine Avenue in Chino Hills.

    Vila Borba, which comprises 336 acres, has been designated by the City of Chino Hills for residential and commercial development since the City’s incorporation.  In 1996, the City approved a General Plan Amendment and Zone Change, allowing low and medium residential and commercial land uses.  The new Vila Borba project proposes detailed development plans for the entire 336 acres, consistent with the 1996 City approvals.

    The Vila Borba project contains four planning areas that would include the following:

    • Planning Area 1: 183 single-family homes, 5+ acres of public park.
    • Planning Area 2: 19 single-family homes.
    • Planning Area 3: 149 single-family homes.
    • Planning Area 4: 280 high-density homes, 5 acres of commercial

    In a recent meeting with Mayor Ed Graham, it was mentioned that Standard Pacific Homes has no interest in placing apartments in area #4. They would rather build condo/townhome communities. This is currently under review.

  • Hiring a professional

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Chino Hills, Home Selling in Chino Hills, Investment Properties in Chino Hills  |  October 14, 2013 10:45 AM  |  266 views  |  No comments

    In today’s market, we believe this is an easy decision: you need an experienced professional!

    You need an expert guide if you are traveling a dangerous path

    The field of real estate is loaded with land mines. You need a true expert to guide you through the dangerous pitfalls that currently exist. Finding a buyer ready, willing and able to pay fair market value for your home at a time when lending standards are so stringent is not an easy task.

    You need a skilled negotiator

    In today’s market, hiring a talented negotiator could save you thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars. Each step of the way – from the original offer, to the possible re-negotiation of that offer after a home inspection, to the possible cancellation of the deal based on a troubled appraisal – you need someone who can keep the deal together until it closes.

     

    Bottom Line

    We believe that famous sayings become famous because they are true. You get what you pay for. Just like a good accountant or a good attorney, a good agent will save you money…not cost you money.

    We believe that serving our clients needs and best interest in first and foremost. We'll always be honest, ethical, and do everything in our power to help make the transaction a good experience.

    If you have any real estate needs........ buy, sell, or lease.... please don't hesitate to give my team a call, text, or email anytime!

    At your service,
