Rancho Highlands Temecula

We continue our blog and videos highlighting Rancho Highlands Temecula, one of our favorite communities in Temecula.. I feel as a real estate broker, one of the best things I can do for prospective buyers is give them as much information up front  and allow them to research areas without wasting tons of time. At the end of this blog post on Rancho Highlands Temecula I will have a specific home search just for that area.

Rancho Highlands consists of 408 homes built  through the late 80’s to the mid-90’s. Home square footage range from 2100-3,000 sq ft. When making the video for the Rancho Highlands Community I was surprised at how quiet it was being so close to the 15 freeway, which is a huge plus. Not only do you get the convenience of being 5 minutes from a major freeway but you don’t have to deal with the car noise.  I also liked the feel and layout of the Rancho Highlands community. When I compare it to newer track home areas I liked how the trees were mature, the grass was green and felt very spacious. I didn’t get that crowded track home feel, like the builder was trying to squeeze in an extra 10 homes.

Another great feature of the Rancho Highlands Temecula Community is the low tax and HOA. I talked about this a lot in many of my other videos and blog posts. You have to be very careful in Southern California in which areas you plan to purchase in, especially if they are in newer developments. Your taxes can literally double depending on  which Community you  choose. An extra $400 in tax a month can definitely impact your lifestyle both positively or negatively. Do your research, and if an older community suits your needs and lifestyle I would personally take a long hard look at that option. 

Here is another blog post of low tax rate communities in Temecula 


 The HOA is going to be around $90 a month and with that comes pools, tennis courts, Spa two separate parks and  basketball courts. This is another example of actually getting something for your monthly HOA. Again, I speak about this a lot but many HOA’s throughout the Southern California area are astronomical for what you get. I love seeing HOA’s around the hundred dollars a month Mark that include beautiful Pools, Spas and things to do with your family and friends. Rancho Highlands gives you this and much more.

Amenities and Convenience 

I won’t go into great detail in regards to what Rancho Highlands has to offer (google maps shows everything) but you’re basically in the middle of Temecula. The Pechanga Casino, Old Town, parks, restaurants and grocery stores are all literally minutes away. For busy families or people that  just want something easy and fun to do on a Friday or Saturday night this is a great community and option.
