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!

Trilogy Vineyards (for those “over 55”) offers a lifestyle, not only a home.  Once a homeowner, you will enjoy  the state-of-the-art athletic club, 2 swimming pools, bocce/tennis courts, and the beautiful  34,000 sq. ft. Club Los Meganos.  This club is PRIVATE for residents and their guests to enjoy a glass of wine, dinner and many wonderful hosted events.

Not only a lifestyle for those “over 55”, but Brentwood offers the closeness of medical facilities (Kaiser & John Muir Health), shopping (Streets of Brentwood), numerous restaurants,  golf courses (Deer Ridge, Shadow Lake, Roddy Ranch & The Golf Club at Brentwood), fields to purchase fresh fruit/veggies and proximity to the Delta for recreation.  BART will soon be a short 15 minute drive and the Livermore Valley is only 30+ minutes away.  Consider the community amenities, as well as the home, with your next purchase – think Brentwood!

“Over 55″ buying opportunities….

Comments Off  | 

“Over 55″ Buyers continue to want to purchase homes in Brentwood’s 1st Retirement area: Summerset.  There are over 25 models, but many buyers are seeking smaller homes below $400K.  Move-in homes that are priced well move quickly!  Currently there are 3 smaller homes (below 1400 sq. ft.) on the MLS.  The Sunmist models on Saint Edmunds Way  and McPrince Lane are a great split floor-plan, with a great use of space and adequate storage.  There are 2 bank-owned homes being offered: 1) Mariposa Way and 2) Franklin Drive; both need some buyer’s love.  Here is a link to current Summerset Homes FOR SALE.

Summerset is located in Brentwood (50 miles east of San Francisco) and made up of 4 communities.  Each community has its own home owner’s association (HOA), recreation center, pool/hot tub, work out area, and activity director.  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.  The monthly HOA’s range in price from $84 – $145 (approx), depending on the community.  Brentwood Golf Club’s course runs throughout Summerset; this is a public course.

Not sure if you want to purchase?  Renting may be the right choice for you.  As a renter, you can take part in all Summerset activities and have access to all of the facilities.  Rents start around $1450/month, but here are the ones that are currently on the MLS.

If you would like more information, please call me at 925-852-1659, as I live in Summerset.

 

Resales for the “active adult” in Brentwood….

Comments Off  | 

For the active-adult looking for a retirement home, Brentwood (50 miles east of San Francisco) offers you two options: Trilogy Vineyards and Summerset.  Trilogy Vineyards started in 2007 and is still being constructed.  Summerset was built from 1994-2005 and has 27 holes of Brentwood Golf Club running throughout its parameters.  Homes that are move-in ready and portray value to a buyer are selling quickly.

If you want the Trilogy lifestyle, and do not want to wait for a new build, one of the current resales may be for you! The home at 1733 Latour is move-in ready, waiting for your personal touch and priced accordingly at $599K. This home boasts 2 bedrooms/baths, 2 private patios (one with a fireplace off the kitchen and the back has stamped concrete), a den, tall ceilings and a great room with a tv already mounted on the wall for your enjoyment. 17611 Latour is stunning with its tall ceilings, grand eating area, slate floors, granite slab counters, patios and beautiful cabinets; however, it lacks a den which many are seeking.  Here is a link to these homes.

Summerset is lacking homes for the entry level buyer.  Currently, there are only 3 priced below $400K: a bank-owed duet (984 sq. ft.) priced at $299K (last comp sold for $225K), a Cortland model (1364 sq. ft.) at $359K and a Kendall (1560 sq. ft.) at $369K.  The home on Mariposa, although advertised as move-in ready, was a bank-owned property (vacant for 3 years) and is in serious need of paint and outside landscape maintenance. An advantage of Summerset homes is that they are gently used and most are move-in ready; however, they usually lack many of the upgrades today’s buyers are seeking (granite counters, upgraded appliances, canned lighting etc.).  A new list on Hagan is a jewel with beautiful crown molding and hard wood flooring, central vac, large lot, and covered patio.  Here is a link to all current Summerset homes for sale.
