New Town Homes Coming Soon to Del Sur

Garretson at Del Sur, a community of new town homes by Standard Pacific is “Coming Soon” to Del Sur.  The models are set to open in April/May 2014.   Pre-sale opportunity though is happening NOW.  This is a good time to buy a beautiful new town home in wonderful Del Sur.  The prices I saw on the Phase 2 price sheet were from about $500,000 to about $572,000.  Move-in dates are June/July 2014.  A perfect time to move especially if you have kids in school.  And speaking of schools, Garretson at Del Sur is located in the award winning Poway school district with top rated schools.

Homes are all 2 story town homes with attached 2 car garages.  There are 3 floor plans, either a 3 or 4 bedroom home with 2.5 to 3 baths.  Homes are between 1,584 to 1,867 square feet.  Plan 3 has a bedroom and full bath on the main level.  I think the Summerland – Plan 3 will be very popular with buyers.  That’s the plan I would buy.   The price for plan 3, on my pricing sheet for Phase 2, is $571,900.

You can view the homes at Standard Pacific community in north Orange County, Paseo at La Floresta.  It is about an hour and 45 minute drive to see the models, but worth the time.  Here is the phone number 714-993-3687 for directions and more information.

The Garretson at Del Sur will be built close to the future Town Center in Del Sur.

What Homes Were Listed in Rancho Bernardo This Week?

The inventory of “homes for sale” in the Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego has picked up this week from that of February 2013.  In the 92128 zip code for example, which Rancho Bernardo is a part of, there were 41 detached “homes for sale” compared to this years’ 71 detached “homes for sale”.  It may be slow butOaks North, 55+ Community inventory is definitely increasing.  That’s good news for Buyers, giving a greater selection of choice.  Last week, a listing came up in Mirador at Oaks North, a 55+ community for $449,000.  This week another home with the same floor plan, a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,286 square feet, also came up for sale.  The newer listing in Mirador is listed about $25,000 above the one listed last week, for $475,000.  Which one did I like best?  The home listed for $449,000 had a great golf course view and it had been freshly painted.  The other home listed for $475,000 was very nicely upgraded but the view was just fair.  From the patio you could see just neighborhood roof tops but no views of the golf course.  I would buy the lower priced home with the better view.  You would be able to make all the upgrades you wanted but would never be able to change the location.  The point here is that location of a home should be its primary consideration.  Right now there are 6 homes for sale in Mirador.  The prices range from $449,000 to $554,900.  Here is a link to all the Oaks North homes for sale

On the Broker’s Tour this week there were two new listings of “homes for sale” in Bernardo Heights.  The first is a home in Bernardo Vistas.  The home is in great condition.  It’s a 4 bedroom, 3 bath detached home.  It’s landscaping was very nice but there was an unusually shaped spa on the side of the house.  I thought it was just a nice water feature, like a pond, but it was a spa.  The home is listed for $725,000 to $750,000.

The Village at Bernardo HeightsThe next home is a great opportunity for someone wanting to live in a gated community in Bernardo Heights and didn’t mind doing a little work.  The home is located in The Village.  This is a gated community with its own swimming pool.  Residents also belong to the Bernardo Heights community center.  The home feels dated and needs some cosmetic updating including removing old wall paper and having new carpet installed.  The home contains 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1,619 square feet and a 2 car garage.  It is listed for $539,000 and has a great location!  The home looks out on the Bernardo Heights golf course.  It’s adjoining home is down sloped so you only see the roof of the home.

Eastview Eastview is always my favorite neighborhood to visit.  I love the views you have from some of the Eastview homes.  I’m always disappointed when I show up and there is no view or an obstructed view.  Well I was not disappointed today.  The home on Adena Lane, has an excellent view of Rancho Bernardo, including the golf course.  The home itself is an attached single level home.  It is attached only on one side.  It’s considered a twin home or duplex.  The home has been remodeled with granite counters and stainless steel appliances.  The home is a 2 bedroom 2 bath home with a 2 car garage, about 1,400 square feet.  It is listed for $539,000.   Last week in Eastview I toured the same floor plan on Devereux Road.  This home was also totally remodeled but had pine trees obstructing the view. Even so, it was still a nice view.  This home is listed for $499,000 to $539,000.  I liked the home on Devereux Road better than Adena Lane BUT I loved the view on Adena Lane.  Here is link to the current homes for sale in Eastview.
