2012 is turning out to be a great year as buyers are back in the market looking for properties. With the current low inventory of homes buyers are open to looking at fixer upper homes as a way to get in to San Clemente Real Estate marketplace. Fixer upper homes rarely come on the market and can range anywhere from a small condo to large ocean view home. If you don't mind a little sweat equity and you enjoy fixing up homes then these properties may be perfectly suited for you. A recent fixer upper home has recently come on the market in the Mira Coast Villas condo community here in San Clemente, California. Mira Costa Villas is an older complex here in San Clemente that were built in the late 1970's. The condo is currently listed for $369,000 and features three bedrooms, two baths with an approximate 1,487 square feet. There has been one sale this year for $299,000 for an exact bedroom and square foot match of the fixer upper that is currently for sale. If you are in the market to buy a property under $400,000 you will also find several other condos listed in the Mira Costa Villas. Similar type buildings to the Mira Costa Villas would be the "Presidential Heights" community which features ocean and golf course views. Condos in Presidential Heights currently range from $335,000 to $429,000 with home owners association dues of $230 a month. Another condo community to consider is the Alassio neighborhood in Talega. These are newer built condos that have recently come on the market under the $300,000 range. There is an additional mello roos tax for these properties so please contact us for the exact cost.
