The Highlands Overview
it appears the rough grading and most of the main underground utilities are complete but we’re still not seeing any homes coming out of the ground. It’s possible the builder is still waiting on finalized construction documents and permits before the actual home construction can commence.
They are planning to create a village like atmosphere, taking advantage of the local natural surroundings, hillsides and open space. The idea of expanding and enhancing the trails is sure to be a popular attraction among prospective buyers. Given the location above Tesoro, we can expect to see a good number of beautiful views from within the neighborhoods.
We are especially excited for the large number of much needed homes for active adults. When it comes to buying a home, there are currently only a few age restricted options in the SCV area. Sure, there are rental communities, but more home buying options for seniors will be a welcome addition to Santa Clarita Valley.
Once we start seeing more visible construction progress we’re do another fly by with our drone for updated photos and video clips.

Don’t Want to Wait for The Highlands to Buy a New Home?
The first homes in the Highlands won’t be available for quite some time. If you would prefer to purchase a brand new home in the near future, you might be interested in other new home developments or resales of recently built, newer homes. We continually visit all the new developments, have represented others, and know exactly where to find the most popular homes.

The Highlands Neighborhood Amenities
According to information we have researched, there are plans for a recreation center, multiple neighborhood parks, community gardens, extended trail systems and lots more. The plan is to provide comfortable gathering points to enable residents to meet and socialize.
Much of this information is still preliminary so we cannot include specifics at this time. It’s safe to say, the recreational amenities will probably be similar to those found in other new housing developments.
By the way, if you have not seen it yet, don’t miss having a look at the new Skyline community. Their primary recreation area is one of our favorites!
The Highlands – Moving Forward
Moving forward, we’ll wait and share more information as the development continues and more reliable information is available. Once the model homes are complete we’ll be happy to accompany clients on their tours.
Caution! Before Visiting The Highlands
It will be quite some time before even thinking about touring model homes.
It’s important to remember, if looking to buy a brand new home here in The Highlands or any other new development, be sure to take us with you on your first visit. Why? Because, if you sign in at the development without us, you lose your right to have us represent you on your new home purchase. We know all of the questions to ask and exactly what to watch for when buying a home in a new development. We’ll guide you every step of the way, help you ask the right questions and provide the information you need to make accurate and informed decisions. Having your own agent makes good sense and provides a much needed extra layer of protection.
