Many San Clemente home buyers have recently been requesting properties in the Talega area of San Clemente, California for $800,000 or less. When you have over 40 communities to choose from in Talega knowing which one to choose can be difficult. Many of the Talega floor plans vary a lot and different tracts have many different architectural and design varieties. As a local San Clemente Real Estate agent I always recommend to my clients to buy in the best neighborhood that your budget will allow. Many buyers looking for homes in the $800,000 range should first look at homes listed in the $900,000 to $1,000,000 range. Educating yourself on what your money will buy you is an important part of the home buying process. Also, understanding what kind of lifestyle you want to live will determine in part where you will end up living. For example, if you want an ocean view, or need to live by a golf course are special conditions only a few communities can offer. With this in mind, communicate with your local Realtor to what's important to you and finding the perfect Talega home will be that much easier. Many of the homes in Talega will also be listed as short sales so make sure your realtor educates you on the short sale buying process.
