Along with some of Hillsborough’s trademark neatly-landscaped streets lined with sprawling 1950s California ranch-style homes, parts of Hillsborough Hills offer stretches of majestic trees, including oaks and California Redwoods, and enough greenery to obscure the grand homes hidden behind. With a population of around 1,300 and a total area of just under 0.6 of a mile, Hillsborough Hills’ population density is 2,176 people per square mile, approximately two-thirds that of Hillsborough as a whole.
Sales activity is rare in secluded Hillsborough Hills, which has averaged only four sales per year over the past five years. This was unchanged in 2020 despite the frenzy of activity that took over Hillsborough during the second half of the year. Four homes sold in Hillsborough Hills, for an average price of $4.78 million (down 2% from 2019) and a median of $5.1 million (up 2% from 2019). Significantly, average price per square-foot rose 30% and average DOM, which had soared to 108 in 2019, fell by two-thirds to 27. I’d caution against putting too much investment into fluctuations in a market with such a small sample size, though. Data from neighborhoods this small can vary wildly from year to year.
