Rolling Hills Estates Newsletter for May 2016
Over the years we have had many inquiries relative to what Rolling Hills really looks like as it is difficult to envisage due to the sloping hills descending 900 feet from the Sales Office to sea level. Therefore, to provide our present owners, as well as our prospective owners and visitors to our website, with a spectacular and detailed aerial overview we had a drone video prepared which shows a panoramic perspective of the entire project.
Lot sales are improving and we have added several new owners to the Rolling Hills Estates family. And, importantly, all of these new owners plan to construct a home on their lot in the near future. Also, we are happy to announce the start of construction on another residence, in Block 25, designed by our architectural team. The construction permit has been applied for and our technical staff is ready to proceed as soon as the permit is received.

This will make four houses under construction, one more to start soon in Block 7, and five additional in various stages of design.
We are confident that these activities will transcend to other owners, and prospective buyers, to start thinking about building their dream home at Rolling Hills and to continue to be part of this growing community.

Facilitating our efforts to increase the number of homes at Rolling Hills is the completion of our new Technical Office and Architectural Design Center adjacent to our Sales Office. This provides our Architects with enhanced opportunities to showcase our proposed model homes, to design custom homes for our owners, to prepare detailed construction drawings, and to enlarge our selection of material samples. In addition, it will be the base office for our technical staff to oversee construction and exercise quality control for the homes built by our team, as well as infrastructure construction.

Infrastructure work continues with the first part of the Phase II road construction, and installation of the underground services, underway to encompass the balance of the main boulevard as well as a number of the secondary streets.
New development construction also continues in the Cabo San Lucas-San José del Cabo corridor, with Solaz about to unveil the first model home, and Vie Vage Los Cabos, within the Chileno Bay project, is set to open this fall. Additionally, Robb Report magazine announced the opening, scheduled for 2018, of the first Four Seasons resort in Los Cabos at Costa Palmas (formerly Cabo Riviera).

In the Real Estate section of the Gringo Gazette, April 9th, 2016, Cindy Williams published an article titled “New Construction VS Re-Sales?”, and stated:
A detailed look into the current market reveals 50% of buyers in Cabo San Lucas are choosing to purchase newly constructed homes and condos. […] The buying trend is moving away from the old rule of thumb, location, location, location and convenience of the downtown area and into the sprawling outer limits of town into either direction, the Corridor or the Pacific side.
As you may know, temperature around this time of the year in Los Cabos starts to warm up, but present wind conditions have pushed heat a bit further with current temperatures ranging from the 70s to 90 degrees. This makes it one of the best times to visit Los Cabos, according to the Travel US News website: “[…] when the wintertime crowds have gone home and the summertime storms are yet to hit.” and continues, “Early bookers will be treated to some of the best discounts during this short shoulder season”.

Although peak season is coming to an end, the Federal Government is very enthusiastic about proposing new tourism programs and packages, targeted to Mexican nationals, to travel around México, as well as working in Congress to approve a bilateral agreement with the US Government to increase the number of flight destinations between these countries. This after the Mexican president, as well as the State Governor, attended the Annual Tourism Convention (Tianguis Turístico) in Guadalajara, Jalisco, last month as this sector remains a priority for the Mexican Government, representing 8.5% of the National Domestic Product.
The ATP World Tour Abierto Mexicano Los Cabos will be held in August of this year, with a financial commitment of $800,000.00 USD, ranking as the highest in its category in the Americas Region.
