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

We had a client call us last week that was looking for a condo near the San Clemente Pier.  I explained to him this area is called the Pier Bowl area and is a very popular place to live since it offers quick access to the beach while also being within walking distance to the many boutique retail stores and restaurants that can be found on the famous "Avenue Del Mar" street which starts from El Camino Real street and leads directly down to the San Clemente Pier.

Real Estate prices for this area have gone up in recent years with some of the lowest price condos found in the mid $600,000 range.  In fact, the condo that the client was calling on was 420 Monterey Lane #R2 which was a very small condo with 300 square feet that was listed at $649,000.  It is

One of the hidden gems for finding good quality rental homes in the San Clemente area is the Vilamoura community.  Over the last couple of years this has been one of the go to places when looking for a quality rental in the mid $3,000 to low $4,000 a month range. What I love about these townhomes are the very well thought out floor plans with soaring ceilings for properties that can have square footages of 1,400 to 1,800 square feet.  We recently just saw a very nice ocean view rental in Vilamoura come on the market that was only on the market for 2 days and offered stunning views as pictured below.  It was priced at $4,500 a month which is expected when you have a premier ocean view in this community.  Non-ocean view homes here will come in at a lower

One of the premier bluff front locations is located in the Southwest San Clemente area with a small condo complex known as Sea Pointe Villas.  If you are family with San Clemente then you have probably been down to the State Park area.  Just above the park is a circular street known as "Avenida Montalvo" and "Avenida Lobiero" which meet as the street loops around the area where some of the best bluff front ocean view condos can be found in San Clemente.  Sea Pointe Villas is located right at the Botton of the loop and can have stunning white water views.  The complex itself is very small so don't expect to see a lot of listings coming on the market and any given time.  We did some research on the past listing history for this complex and found that

One of the more popular places to look for rental homes in San Clemente is the Marblehead area.  The community has expanded greatly in the last several years with the additional of the newer Sea Summit community.  Originally the Marblehead community consisted of homes located on the east side of the 5 freeway located in a secure gated community with a number of neighborhoods to choose from.  There were also a couple condo tracts that were located just outside this gated community which formed the Marblehead area.  Then back in 2015 everything changed with the construction of brand new homes in four different neighborhoods located on the west (ocean) side of the 5 freeway.  This community is commonly known as Sea Summit and has become on the hottest

If you have been looking at real estate in the last year you know how competitive the market is right now.  Finding anything under $500,000 by the beach has become very hard to do, especially anything with quality construction and a view.  San Clemente still offers some affordable options if you know where to look.  Real Estate prices historically have been going up in the past 10 years with a sharp increase in the last 12 months due to low interest rates and buyers looking to invest in properties that they can live in as well as rent out to others.  If you find something you like we always recommend putting in an offer quickly as there are many buyers looking in this price range.

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

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

As we head into the 2016 Presidential Elections one thing is for certain, real estate prices in San Clemente are at an all time high.  This is especially true to residential condos that currently starts at $405,000 for a non-view two bedroom condo.  These prices are very reminiscent of 2007 when prices were at the top of the market right before the housing market crashed.  The biggest thing moving the market right now are low interest rates and the consumer feeling positive about the economy.  With that being said there is a lot of anxiety of what will happen next year.  Many have predicated that we are in a real estate bubble and an adjustment is soon to happen to correct these high real estate prices.  This is further backed up by the Feds wanting to
