Summerset Update – April 2015

Summerset Entrance

 

UPDATED 4/28/15:  The average days on the MLS for Summerset homes is 54 days, as several homes have not been chosen by buyers.  :(  Most of these homes are free of defects,  just have not been chosen because they are perhaps lacking a den/office, 2 car garage or privacy.  They could also have electrical towers nearby,  original pricing issues, poor photos/marketing of property.  Here is a link to the Summerset homes on the MLS.

Summerset is an “over 55 community” in Brentwood.  Summerset has 4 communities, each with a clubhouse, pool/hot tub, billiard tables, tennis courts, bocce courts and many other activities & trips.  Many monthly activities and trips take place for residents to enjoy.  One can be as busy or un-busy as they want, and participate at any events at all 4 communities.

Should you want more information, please call me @ 925-852-1659, as I live in Summerset.    Currently,  there are NO rentals in Summerset on the MLS.

Summerset Update – 3/21/15

P1020305Happy Spring!    Many buyers are out looking and putting in offers on Summerset homes.   Several have gone PENDING or CONTINGENT these past few weeks: Upton Pyne, Kent, Quindell, Franklin, Suntan, & Regent  and Winesap.   Buyers are looking for move-in ready homes that are priced well or are unique (updated, on golf course or special lot).   Here is a link to current Summerset Homes FOR SALE   This list shows 18 homes FOR SALE, but homes are changing weekly, so keep checking back for updates.  The newest is a rare Peachtree model in Summerset #4 on Alderman; great floor plan & price.

One entry-level Summerset home has a clear Section #1 & was Appraised at list price. So, if you are in the low $300K price range, this home is for you.  It has an updated kitchen, master math, new exterior paint and no rear neighbors.  Why has it been on the market so long???   Good question, as it is NOT because of the home.   It does have a single car garage, and laundry in garage; other than that, it is a sweet little property.  It is priced $7K below the last comp and $10K less than a model-match on Kent Place that is missing the granite counter-tops and updated master bath of this home on Gladstone Drive.

RENTALS:   There is one home for rent in Summerset.

Keep checking back for updates or call me for more information at 925-852-1659.
