The home value index for the entire city of Chula Vista was $794,946 as of last February, according to the most recent monthly data available.
That record average price means an increase of 25.2 percent in the twelve months through February. The analysis still lacks the information for March, when the purchase offers increased according to residents of Chula Vista.
Mary, who lives in Eastlake and prefers not to give her last name, told Chula Vista Today that representatives from "real estate agencies come knocking on my door to ask if I want to sell my condo, and they call me on the phone every day.".
"I was worried that, without my knowing it, someone might have advertised that I was selling, hence the insistence of the real estate agents, but several neighbors tell me that they have to deal with the agents too," she said.
