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 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

If you ever get a chance to drive through the Sea Summit neighborhood one thing you will be really impressed with is the beautiful landscaping in front of these new construction homes.  The Sea Summit community has rules and regulations set in place that all landscape designs must first go through the association Design Review Committee (DRC) to be approved.  Due to this reason you will see a very diverse but uniform upscale look to the landscaping here.  The DRC actually oversees any kind of work that you do here which include decks, walls, fences, pools, patio covers, etc.  They want to make sure that the integrity of these upscale homes remains. Architectural applications must be sent to the DRC headquarters in Irvine who are within the Keystone

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

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

San Clemente has several areas and neighborhoods of homes that can accommodate RV Parking.  One of the first areas that comes to mind is the Forster Ranch area of San Clemente.  One of the reasons that this is the #1 area is due to the age of these homes.  Many of the homes in the Forster Ranch area where built in the 1970's when homes were not built so close together and tend to be located on large over-sized lots.  Many of the lots have special driveways that can accommodate RV Parking directly on the home which is ideal for those who own RV homes.  There are also neighborhoods like Tocayo Canyon in Forster Ranch that have dedicated areas for RV parking.  The best part about the Forster Ranch area is that home prices tend to be much more affordable than

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
