The year 2020 will remembered for a variety of reasons and was surprisingly a good year for real estate in San Clemente, California. The market was good for the first couple of months at the beginning of the year and slowed down dramatically due to the nationwide shut down that occurred in March and April. Of course, that didn't last long as COVID19 caused many home buyers the urgent need to find another home that was more suited for staying at home. We experienced a lot of buyers coming from the big cities looking to own a home with more land and more interior space. Low mortgage interest rates also helped increase the buying power and we started to see multiple offers on many properties in the summer and fall months. There were three large sales that occurred in San Clemente which all of them were over the $5 million dollar price point and all located in the Cyprus Shore area of San Clemente. This a very popular community located in the very end of the Southwest San Clemente area filled with 4 different gated neighborhoods.
Two of the top 3 sales for 2020 where actually located next to each other on Vista Blanca street in San Clemente. 3824 Vista Blanca was originally listed for $5,777,8888 and was on the market for only 46 days and closed escrow on 11/23/20 for $5,400,000. This property had a lot of interest from multiple buyers due to it's bluff front location and attractive price point. The home featured five bedrooms, six and a half baths with an approximate 6,907 square feet of living space on two different levels and came with an attached three car garage.
The other sale that was located next door was located at 3822 Vista Blanca. This home was on the market for $6,450,000 and sold after being listed for sale for 11 days. This was a large home of the two with a total of six bedrooms, five and a half baths with an approximate 8,004 square feet of living space. This was also located in the gated community of Cyprus Cove and was located on the bluff front with spectacular ocean front views. The video link below shows how spectacular this home is and the wonderful ocean views that can be seen from this location.
The highest sale in 2020 in San Clemente was located in the gated community of Cotton Point Estates which is located within the Cyprus Shore gated community. 4085 Calle Isabella sold for the full asking price of $6.6 million and closed escrow on 11/23/20 while being sold off market . This often happens when a real estate agent knows of a potential seller who wants to sell and a potential buyer who wants to buy and pairs the two of them together and procures a sale. This was a six bedroom, five and a half bath home with an approximate 7,152 square feet of living space. This unique thing about this location is that it's super secure as you have to go through one 24 hour guard gated entrance then through a second gated entrance to get to this home. If you are a surfer then the world class Trestles surf break is also just minutes away as well.
