San Clemente has a wide variety of housing types that include single family homes, condos, townhouses, mobile homes and PUD homes. What is exactly is a PUD home? To be honest with you, most local real estate agents here in San Clemente would not have an answer to that question as well. PUD stands for a Planned Unit Development. These homes are often detached properties that have been give the tax classification of a PUD home instead of a traditional single family home. This is also common in detached properties that are classified as condos even though the have the look and feel of a traditional single family home. Often times this is done for tax reasons and the necessary permits that are required between a condo or a single family home. When a builder is looking to buy homes for entire neighborhood it is more cost efficient to have the homes classified as a condo rather than a single family home. The level of permits required for a condo may be different than those required for a single family home. It's important to note that most of the PUD and condo neighborhood homes will have a homeowners association with certain rules and regulations. Getting a loan may also be a little tricker as the lender may have to Jump through some additional hoops to get these types of homes approved.
