Catania Short Sale Talega Homes in San Clemente, CA

Posted by Sam Smith on Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 at 5:24pm.

The Catania gated community in Talega is not one of the well known neighborhoods in San Clemente.  The community is located at the very end of Talega tucked away in a quiet area that has restricted access to non-residents due to it's gated entrance.  I truly believe this is one of Talega's best kept secret since the floor plans are some of the best to be found in the Talega. 

The community is split into two different sections, one located on the west side of the street "Avenida Talega" and have incredible ocean views.  I would venture to say these are the best ocean views you can find in Talega for under $1 million dollars.  The homes on the west side will have less of a view are are located on three quiet streets.  The model homes were actually located on this side and were the first homes as you enter into the community on the right hand side. 

If you are like most home buyers in today's market you are looking for a deal.  Since most Talega homes have come down in price nearly 50% and a large majority of these homes will be short sale listings.  Currently there is only one home for sale in the Catania community and currently listed at $670,000 as a short sale.  The home at 38 Via Cartama features 5 bedrooms, 5 baths will an approximate 3,800 square feet.  The listing indicates that have accepted an offer that has been submitted to the bank but are currently taking back-up offers.  My experience with short sales is that nearly 1/3 to 1/2 of these buyers end of buying another home while they are waiting for the approval so making a back-up offer is always a good use of your time. 

In 2012, we have seen 8 properties sell in the Catania neighborhood ranging from $745,000 to $875,000 with a couple of these properties offering ocean views.  My recommendation is to get on a list of new short sale listings as they come on the market in Talega and contact an agent right away when you see a home that will work for you.  The San Clemente Real Estate market is moving very quickly right now, especially for homes under $800,000.
