Welcome to the unique City of La Habra Heights.
La Habra Heights, CA is one of those eclectic areas of So Cal, so unlike much of our cookie cutter living elsewhere. The “Heights” as it´s known to most of us is not to be confused with the neighboring City of La Habra, CA.
First things first, for openers La Habra Heights is located in the County of Los Angeles, the sister City of La Habra (again right next door) is located in the County of Orange.
Another major difference is the make up of the city. The vast majority of the Heights is home to custom homes on large sprawling lots of an acre or offering a more rural lifestyle in the city. Many of the homes dot the hillside streets or sit in down in the valley areas. While you may find an abundance of multi million dollar estates you can find others that may be more modest in size and price. The “Heights” is also well known for avocados, including being home to the Haas variety of avocados from the 1920´s gown by a local resident for the very first time. This variety was eventually patented in the 1930´s a has become a favorite of many.
Many of the streets appear as county lanes while just minutes away from the more urban city lifestyle. The Hacienda Golf Club a private facility founded in the 1920’s is located near the center of the community. Many of the homes have views of the spectacular fairways.
According to the last reported census reported the median household income was just over $101,000. I would imagine by today´s standards it would be much higher. While the area in high in income, it´s small in size encompassing a mere 6.2 miles. The population again according to the last census was around 6,000 residents, an unknown number of horses and other (mostly) domestic 4 legged friends live here.
The average selling price for homes in the City (of a total of 20 homes which closed) was $890,800 for the first half of 2008. These homes sold at an average of 92% of the last asking price and 88% of the original asking price.
