Porter Ranch Community Information

(By Jason Ian Hector--10/16/15)  Porter Ranch has several new homes for sale being built by Toll Brothers.  In fact they are currently developing a large parcel of land off Corbin, just south or Rinaldi which had remained undeveloped for years.  Additionally, there is talk of a Porter Ranch Village which would be adjacent to the existing Porter Ranch Town Center and Aldea gated community.  The Porter Ranch neighborhood council website construction page is a good place for more information.

I view the rapid development of several high priced homes being built by Toll Brothers as a positive sign for Porter Ranch, however the need for more affordable housing  in Porter Ranch I believe may come from short sales in the newer Porter Ranch communities since there still are several very large loans people have taken out, some of which may be interest only loans due for payment increases after 10 years.  For homeowners in this situation, I can help you by working with the lender on options such as short sale which can help to workout the loans.
Having lived in Porter Ranch, I have had a chance to see it develop over the years.  I remember when Rinadi ended at Tampa going West and those hills were all open trails for hiking, biking and off roading.  Now that area is the Porter Ranch Town Center with anchor stores including Ralphs, Best Buy, and WalMart but also with 3 banks, In & Out Burger (my fave), Starbucks, Islands, TGI Fridays and many more stores.  The last couple of decades has seen the development of gated communities throughout Porter Ranch as well as neighboring Chatsworth and Granada Hills.  They are still currently developing in Porter Ranch although demand has slowed.  A new upcoming addition is the new K-8 school (pictured on the left) is set to be completed in Fall of 2012 and should be a big help for the already overwhelming demand for the highly sought after Castlebay Elementary school.  Also pictured on the left is the North Valley YMCA which is my favorite place to work out and play basketball and great for the kids too.  I love their Yoga classes.
