If you are a San Clemente home buyer in the $500,000 range then you have several options to choose from. You can consider the downtown area of San Clemente that's close to the beach and find a small two bedroom homes that will most likely be built in the early 1920's - 1960's. If your taste is more of a newer construction home with three large bedrooms and two story Spanish style living then looking in several Talega communities may be better suite for you. Since there are more than 40 communities to choose from in the Talega area knowing which community is best for you can be difficult. One of the unique neighborhoods in Talega is the Escala community. Here you will find three bedroom homes that have come down in price and currently start at $539,000. These homes were built by Standard Pacific Homes in 2004 and offer the modern amenities you come to expect from homes built during this time period. Many of the homes listed for sale in the $500,000 range are listed as short sales so It's important to work with a Talega short sale specialist that can educate you on the short sale process.
