In a nutshell, Chula Vista is better than Paradise Hills for a number of reasons. I will start by explaining that Chula Vista is known by East (newer) and West (older) Chula Vista. In general Chula Vista overall is better. Please reach out to me for more detailed information on any of the following. Here are a few reasons why I made the above statement. #1 Schools are better, especially in East Chula Vista (East of 805) Most of the API scores from elementary to High School are 8-9's where Paradise Hills API scores are 4-6's. #2 Less Crime #3 Homes retain higher values (cost more but stay worth more). #4 Overall newer master planned community.

Hi Karina,

The market at this level is very competitive right now. We are seeing alot of investors and first time home buyers competing for the same property and the problem with that is the investors typically have the means to outbid or provide stronger offers which ultimately puts first time homebuyer in the backseat. Your main objective needs to be "pre-pared" which means "pre-approved" and ready to strike when the deal that best suits your needs hits the market.

I work directly with the banks listing foreclosed properties all over the county and would be happy to assist you in finding a suitable home. Please feel free to contact me direct or via my website below and I'd be happy to arrange a search that will contact you immediately when homes that meet your criteria hit the market.

Best of luck in your search.
