Summerset (an over 55 community) is located in Brentwood (94513) and made up of 4 communities and just over 2,000 homes that were built from 1994-2003.  Each community has its own recreation center, pool/hot tub, and work out area.  The Brentwood golf course runs throughout all four communities; it is a public course and no fees are paid by Summerset residents for its upkeep.  Once you are a resident of Summerset, you will receive a monthly activity calendar, and can attend activities at any of the four Summerset locations.  HOA fees range from $84-$145/month.

August 2014 – Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards Re-sale Update!

Comments Off  | 

Happy August to you!  Recently two golf course homes in Summerset found buyers in just days.  These move-in homes priced from $600-$620K had over 2500 sq. with a 3 car garage.  Proving once again that homes “priced right” do SELL QUICKLY!

Many sellers are so emotionally attached to their home that they OVER-PRICE their  home for the market, because they “need” to get the money out that they put in or they “need” to net this amount.  If this is the case, you may want to wait until the price goes up to a value that you feel comfortable, and you do not perceive that you are “giving your home away”.  However, if you “need” to sell now, then take the EMOTION OUT and work with a realtor, determine a realistic selling price, take the emotion out, and let your realtor do his/her job,  and it WILL sell.  (I know this first hand, as I had to sell my personal home in Phoenix, when the market was just starting to go down in 2006.  Thank God that I did, because my home value went down another $150K after closing.)  It is very hard to sell a home for less than you have into the home, but if you NEED to sell it, then sell it!  The market is going up, but many sellers are just starting to see “the light of day” from being under-water in value.  Each situation is different and a realtor can assist you through this difficult process.

This week, there are 9 homes FOR SALE in Summerset, ranging in price from $308K for a duet at 1022 sq. ft. to $549K for almost 2,400 sq. ft. near Summerset #4′s Clubhouse.  There are 4 entry-level homes FOR SALE in the 1250 sq. ft. range, priced from $355-$389K.  These homes are great as they come with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a 2 car garage and several have a private backyard.   Here is a link to ALL Summerset homes FOR SALE.

Trilogy Vineyards has 7  re-sale homes on the MLS, ranging from $590-959K.  These homes are better than new, as the yards and window treatments are already complete.  They all have different options, but all offer you the entrance into the FABULOUS Club Los Meganos for your dining, exercising and entertaining pleasure.  Here is a link to Trilogy Vineyard homes FOR SALE.

Looking for a wonderful move-in ready Trilogy Vineyards home?  check out this virtual tour of 1611 Gamay Lane, and come to the OPEN HOUSE on Sunday, Aug 3rd from 1-4PM.

Between Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards, a buyer has options of many floor plans, home features, amenities and pricing levels.  Come on out and experience the East Bay’s BEST “over 55″ communities.  Brentwood is centrally located with access to many of the most popular attractions in Northern California: San Francisco, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe and the Delta offering great water sports and fishing.  Minutes away, you’ll also find a Kaiser and John Muir Health medical facilities.

Summerset & Trilogy Vineyard Re-sale Homes………..

Comments Off  | 

photo_4192205-100x75Summer is here and the home buying season is in full swing.   Brentwood has two “over 55″ communities: Summerset and Trilogy Vineyards, that have homes for most budgets.  Each community offers classes, bocce, tennis, work out rooms, and group travel.

Summerset was built from 1994-2005 and has over 2,000 homes in 4 communities.  Homes in Summerset range from the low $300K for a duet (starting at 964 sq. ft.) to the mid-high $500K for a 2100+ sq. ft. home, depending on location, lot and upgrades.  Here is a link to current homes on the MLS.

Trilogy Vineyard started constructing homes in 2007, and you can also purchase a new home through the builder.  A re-sale home is a great option for a buyer, as you do not need to deal with the hassle of choices, dirt, delays and rear yard construction.   Here is a link to current Trilogy Vineyard Resale homes.  These homes are being sold at prices lower than a new-build would cost for the same features; they are a value!  The best part is that you can move in 30 days or less!

P1010634(1)Resale activity is strong in this “over 55″ community in Brentwood.  This  community, built from 1994-2005, has just over 2,000 homes.  Homes priced well are moving quickly and buyers are needing to respond immediately to new listings that are very desirable (golf course, private, updated, 3 car garage, walk-ability)

If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you will see that prices are steadily rising.   The Sunmist model (Bacchini) that is listed at $359K, sold for $345K in April.  It seems that each time a model is listed, $5-10K or more is added to the price of the prior listing, and it SELLS!

Currently, there are 5 re-sale homes for sale in Summerset, priced from $359K to $599K!  Here is a link to those homes!
