Rising Interest Rates has become a problem for those looking to get a mortgage when buying a home in today's real estate market.  These higher rates were intended to slow down pries and inflation but the actual opposite as happened.  Due to low inventory, we have what they call shelter inflation which is reaction to the Federal government raising interest rates.  It's basically explained as the higher the interest rates go, less and less people who currently have a 3 or 4 percent mortgages on their home would not want to put their home on the market and buy another property at interest rates in the 6 to 7 percent range due to the higher costs involved.  So the higher interest rates have created a very limited number of homes coming on the market which is

One of the hottest neighborhoods right now is the Shorecliff's San Clemente community.  Over the last several months that have been record sales in this community that have topped over $2 million dollars and this trend continues into the first months of 2023.  One reason for these high prices is the new community of Socorro Shores which features brand new construction homes that some were finished in 2022.  These are larger homes that can span over 4,000 square feet of living space with larger and attractive lot sizes.  One of the huge selling points for these homes is that they advertise low homeowners association dues with no Mello-Roos tax.  If you are buying a new home and can avoid paying an annual Mello Roos tax which can span over 30 years then

The Southwest San Clemente area is often considered one of the best neighborhoods in San Clemente near the beach due it's unique collection of various types of single family homes.  In the last several years we have seen a lot of construction in this area due to the rising real estate prices and the need for more housing inventory.  In the last week 2 new brand new construction listings have come on the market in.

The San Clemente Real Estate market in the last three to four months has been really crazy as buyers are bidding against each other when new listings that are priced well come on the market.  Many thought COVID would bring the real estate market down but it has actually had a reverse effect and the market has never been stronger.  One of the biggest issues is limited inventory which has been a problem for the last two to three years in San Clemente and has become even more limited due to COVID.  What many buyers are doing is looking for homes that are not on the market yet but will be coming on the market soon.  These listings that were once only limited to real estate agents are now available to the general public.

What a difference a couple of months make when looking at San Clemente real estate market.  COVDI19 has really changed the landscape of the marketplace and has actually caused the reverse of what most people think would happen.  We get a lot of calls from buyers thinking they can get a big discount on real estate since they feel the overall economy has taken a hit due to the large number of jobs that were lost.  In fact, the opposite has happened to the real estate market.  The inventory of homes on the market for sale was low before COVID19 and because of the pandemic there are even less sellers wanting to put their home on the market.  Given the high demand of buyers that still want to buy in part to the very low interest rates there is almost a bidding

Here is a quick guide to the highest homes sales in San Clemente for 2019.

The highest sale this year occurred in the Cyprus Cove community which sold before it even came on the market.  This was a newly designed home by James

When I first got into real estate over 20 years ago I always heard the word "turnkey" and had no idea what people were talking about.  It seems like its a favorite word among real estate agents for describing a home that is in excellent condition.  it wasn't later that it was explained to me that it literally meant turn the key in the door and leave without any concern about something falling apart or not working correctly.  Once I got this explanation it started to make sense but I still feel like it's a word that is over used by the real estate community.

Nevertheless, it's a short way to describe a home that needs little to no work done on the home.  Basically, bring your touthbrush and move right in.  This is especially true to describe condos in

It's hard to find any new community in Southern California being built that doesn't have the added Mello Roos bond attached to it.  For those new to the California real estate market the word "Mello Roos" will be an unfamiliar term, as it was when I first moved here to California.  In essence, a Mello Roos bond is typically a monthly fee that is paid on top of any homeowners association fee and any individual mortgage.  For the most part this is only associated with new communities as you rarely see Mello Roos tax on older homes.  In San Clemente, the most popular area to find Mello Roos is the Talega area which features over 40 communities that all have the added Mello Roos bond fee.  Mello Roos bonds are normally around 30 years and the fee goes towards

Real Estate agents have a special day when they get to preview brand new listings that come on the market in the San Clemente real estate market place.  This is called "broker preview" since real estate agents and brokers have the ability to view a large number of listings in a short four period.  Often times, agents will spend just a couple minutes looking at a property and then drive on to the next property.  This allows them to be able to see a large number of properties so they are better able to identify properties that may work for their clients.
