Making Ramona Home

 — Karen Domintz

Ramona is a unique community when it comes to real estate. Buyers are drawn here for home prices that are usually more affordable than what they’ll find “down the hill,” and often with the benefit of a little more land. 

It is a great community for raising children, enjoying retirement, meeting people and partaking in outdoor activities — there are many plusses for making Ramona your home. 

For both buyers and sellers, their biggest consideration should be seeking the help of a local professional Realtor. A Realtor who specializes in Ramona will have the knowledge necessary to calculate a current market value that is accurately based on the minutiae of the area. They’re familiar with the water district, and the fact that there is no natural gas here, but rather, propane is available from a number of service providers.

Ramona properties often have wells for irrigation, which are sometimes the only water source for a property. Also, most properties in the area are on septic systems. 

These features need to be correctly written into real estate contracts for the protection of all parties. 

Local Ramona Realtors give back to the community. They shop in Ramona, they raise scholarship funds for local students, and they help the Ramona Senior Center, to name just a few of their many community outreaches.

The next time you need something in Ramona, call a local Ramona Realtor and ask. They’re familiar with it all!
