San Elijo Hills’ Oktoberfest in San Marcos draws record crowd by Stephanie Stang October 17, 2019
— The annual Oktoberfest in San Elijo Hills in San Marcos proved to be the community’s most popular event yet. Although 2,000 people attended the festival every year, folks say it still has a small community feel. Alpana Patel says she brings her family every year and loves seeing all of her neighbors in one place. “It’s a great way to run into people.”San Elijo resident Mike Adams says he enjoys bringing all five of his children to the fair because of “all the rides, all the fun, all the food, great for the community. All the kids can hang out with their friends.” “There is just an incredible sense of community here,” realtor Ed Philbrick said. “I think it’s an amazing value compared to other surrounding communities. I mean with this event for example, you probably have an event per month when you look at it, and the events are pretty elaborate. There is a lot going on. Here you have a climbing wall, a (Ferris) wheel, food, beer (beer garden). There’s always something going on in San Elijo and so it’s hard to complain about the value that you are getting. People aren’t always happy with HOAs but that’s not really the case here.”

Every year at this time, many local homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.
Seven great reasons not to wait:
Relocation buyers are out there. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays and need their employees in their new positions as soon as possible.
Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now.
You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.
Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
There is less competition for you as a seller right now.
If you’re thinking of selling, whether it’s this Fall/Winter or next year, please let me know! With so little inventory on the market, many buyers are still looking for homes so if it’s the right time for you to make a move now, I’m here to help! If you’re planning to move in the new year, it’s never too early to get started preparing your home for sale.
