San Clemente has seen a very limited inventory of homes for the year 2021 with a small number of new homes being built for re-sale. There are still some great opportunities out there if you know where to look.  One of these opportunities is a new construction listing located at 1205 Via La Mesa which is scheduled to become between a 4,200 to 4,500 square foot home with a total of 5 bedrooms and 5 baths.  If you are family with the street Via La Mesa then you know it's located on the east side of the 5 freeway and is being advertised as offering ocean and coastline views.  It's reported that a prominent builder will be in charge of building this modern architectural style home with quality craftsmanship.  The nice thing about this project is that the buyer

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 looked any many homes in the San Clemente area one name that you will come across is Chris Abel.  Many of these homes were designed in the 1950's with the popular mid-century modern designed homes were built.  His reach can be seen in many different neighborhoods throughout San Clemente from smaller beach bungalow to multi-family building structures.  One of the most popular places to find his work would be at the Vista Pacific Del Gado community.  When you talk about mid-century modern design the bungalow style homes found in this community are the closest match you will find in San Clemente.  All of the homes located here are one story homes with nice vaulted ceiling's that give the illusion of extra space.  The properties are rather on the

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.

We received a call last night from a client looking in the Colony Cove community in San Clemente.  There budget was around $675,000 which is a good amount of money which easily could have bought a property last year in Colony Cove when looking at the comparble sales from 2020.   They were shocked at the current real estate prices this year which are ranging from $734,000 to $815,000 which is a far cry from sales from last year that ranged from $574,000 to $650,000.  A lot has changed in the real estate market in the last 9 months for a variety of reasons.

First, having low mortgage rates has really been a game changer for the real estate market in Southern California and other places as well.  What that means is that buyers are able to afford more

The year 2020 will remembered for a variety of reasons and was surprisingly a good year for real estate in San Clemente, California. The market was good for the first couple of months at the beginning of the year and slowed down dramatically due to the nationwide shut down that occurred in March and April.  Of course, that didn't last long as COVID19 caused many home buyers the urgent need to find another home that was more suited for staying at home.  We experienced a lot of buyers coming from the big cities looking to own a home with more land and more interior space.  Low mortgage interest rates also helped increase the buying power and we started to see multiple offers on many properties in the summer and fall months.  There were three large sales

We always get excited when new listings come on the market in the San Clemente that offer a unique opportunity to find a home that is not necessarily the same as other homes that are on the market.  A perfect example of this is a new historic home that was built in 1929 and offers a unique position on a hilltop location.  San Clemente has a very limited number of historic homes from the 1920's and 1930's that still exist today.  The large majority of them are located near the downtown area with a few of them located on unique locations like 165 Calle Redondel.  

The home is currently listed at $1,050,00 and has been on the market for 3 days ago and sure to see a lot of activity.  It features a total of 2 bedrooms with an approximate 934 square feet

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

Condos near the San Clemente Pier area always command a premium in price, especially if they offer any kind of a views.  The Panorama Condominiums located 420 Avenida Monterey offer all of this with a location that is just a matter if minutes to the beach.  The building dates back to 1964 when it was first built and offers mostly studio and one bedroom with a rare two bedroom units here too.  One thing you can't expect here are large floor plans as the studio units typically run between 345 to 400 square feet while the one bedrooms are around 680 to 830 square feet.  What you can expect in some of these condos is great ocean views as well as views of the San Clemente Pier as well.

Real Estate prices have really gone up in recent years with the last

One of the newest developments to hit the San Clemente Real Estate marketplace is the Ten10 Santiago complex in San Clemente. We have been watching this construction for a long time and it's exciting to finally start to see the final product.  The location is right in the heart of Southwest San Clemente area near the Ralph's shopping center.  The address is located at 1010 S El Camino Real at the corner of Santiago street, hence the name 1010 Santiago.  Several weeks ago they had their first open house and the design and attention to details is what you would expect from a new construction condo.  The condos sit ideally over the houses in the Southwest San Clemente area with great ocean views.

San Clemente has a large number of properties on the market for sale right now that are being marketed as fully furnished.  This is becoming a big trend in selling a home  How exactly does it work?  For starters, there are various degrees in which an owner can decide to sell a home.  We see some sellers offering select pieces of furniture to be included in the sale while others will offer completely everything including kitchen plates and silverware.  One of the first things you should do it make a quick estimate on how much the furniture would cost if you were to buy it.  

It's important to also factor in the selling price of the home as well.  If the home is priced correctly and listed at a price point of where other similar type homes in the

There is one thing that is true about real estate no matter where you decide to buy and that is always about location.  You can always change the interior of the home but you can never change the actual location of the land that the property sits on.  This is also true for homes located on a corner lot as these types of properties are considered prime real estate here in San Clemente.  One of the main reasons why homes on corner lots are so desirable is having only one neighbor to the side of you.  If you like having extra privacy then this is type of property that will give you the extra space that you are looking for.

There are also other factors as well.  Homes on corners lots tend to be typically larger than other neighboring lots.  Often times

The San Clemente historic home tour is set to take place next month on October 12, 2019.

The long anticipated development of this community has finally come to life with 3 homes being released on to the market in the Socorro Shores neighborhood.  I received a call on this development many years ago as they were trying to figure out how much homes would sell for in this area.  At the time the Sea Summit community located next door had not even started development so it was tough to gauge exactly what homes would sell for.  Since the Sea Summit neighborhood is heading towards it's final stages of selling out it makes sense that there are enough comps to support a brand new construction home with over 4,000 square feet on the north side of San Clemente.

Socorro Shores is a combination of 9 luxury homes located on Via Socorro street in San

Arguably, one of the best neighborhoods in San Clemente is the Southwest San Clemente area.  What makes it so desirable is you won't find two homes that look exactly the same which has not been the trends for new construction homes.  Many of the new neighborhoods in San Clemente are considered tract communities that alternate between 3 to 4 different floor plans with every third or forth property looking the same.  This is not the case in the Southwest area as every home was custom built by owners who live there.  Many of the original beach homes still exist while many have been converted into much larger homes which tends to be a trend in real estate nowadays.  

Rental prices for single family homes will typically start at $3,000 per month for a two

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

Southwest San Clemente is widely considered one of the best neighborhoods in San Clemente by many who live here.  While the community is predominately filled with residential homes there are also some nice condo and townhouses located in this area.  One of the best places to look is near the State Park area which has a large number of oceanfront, ocean view and residential condos.  A perfect example of this is a new listing that just came on the market at 268 Avenida Montalvo #1 in San Clemente.  The two bedroom condo features two levels of living space with a total of 1,648 square feet.  It comes with an attached two car garage and features wonderful ocean views as well as coastline views looking towards Dana Point.  It's currently priced at $1,399,000.

We see some agents advertise homes as "below market" here in San Clemente.  Whenever we see a listing like this we always wonder if it's truly priced below market, and if it is what is wrong with the property?  Some real estate agents will price a home very aggressively that is slighting below recent sales comps to generate a lot of interest.  This results in multiple people interested in the property which causes the price to get bid up.  For example, if the home is worth $1 million but the agent prices it at $850,000 to lure buyers into the property while hoping that several people will place bids on the home driving the price above the $1 million price point.  Sometimes this does work and sometimes this backfires causing the home to sell less than what

We have many clients who are looking for a highly upgraded home with modern finishes in a turnkey condition.  While there are many homes that have been completely renovated there is nothing like a brand new home that offers everything that a client is looking for.  Model homes tend to offer these amenities and one of the best places to look is the brand new Sea Summit community in San Clemente which offers 4 unique neighborhoods that typically have 3 model homes to display various floor plans that each specific neighborhood has to offer.

A perfect example of a model home that is offered for sale in Sea Summit is the home located at 123 Via San Sebastian in San Clemente.  It's located in the most expensive Indigo neighborhood and was the "Residence 2"
