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

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

San Clemente is a small beach town with a nice mixture of residential homes, condo and apartment buildings.  For the most part residential lots are pretty small and feature only one single family home located on it.  There are a few exceptions to this and typically can be found in homes that were built before the 1950's in the downtown section where two homes were built one lot.  These homes were often vacation beach homes were both homes would accommodate their owners and their extended families.  Most of these older properties in San Clemente were destroyed due to builder newer homes or condo buildings so finding these type of unique properties on one lot is very rare.

One of the benefits for buying a property like this is that you have the potential

Real Estate agents have a special day when they get to preview brand new listings that come on the market in the San Clemente real estate market place.  This is called "broker preview" since real estate agents and brokers have the ability to view a large number of listings in a short four period.  Often times, agents will spend just a couple minutes looking at a property and then drive on to the next property.  This allows them to be able to see a large number of properties so they are better able to identify properties that may work for their clients.

The San Clemente Real Estate market has seen in a dramatic increase in the beginning part of 2013. During the first 6 months of the year we saw a very low inventory of homes and a high demand for buyers looking to buy. Due to this supply and demand homes prices raised significantly until the end of the summer when things suddenly changed from a seller's market to a buyer's market. One of the reasons this happened was that many buyers felt like prices went up too fast and too high. A lot of the buyers that I worked with didn't want to get trapped into another real estate bubble and were holding off until things came back down. Between August and December of 2013 that is exactly what happened. The San Clemente market saw a small dip in real estate prices

The Catania gated community in Talega is not one of the well known neighborhoods in San Clemente.  The community is located at the very end of Talega tucked away in a quiet area that has restricted access to non-residents due to it's gated entrance.  I truly believe this is one of Talega's best kept secret since the floor plans are some of the best to be found in the Talega. 

The community is split into two different sections, one located on the west side of the street "Avenida Talega" and have incredible ocean views.  I would venture to say these are the best ocean views you can find in Talega for under $1 million dollars.  The homes on the west side will have less of a view are are located on three quiet streets.  The model homes were actually located
