JULY 2020 - Brentwood's

Posted On: July 5th, 2020 10:04PM

UPDATED 7/28/2020 - This real estate blog’s focus is Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards; two “55+ communities” in Brentwood CA.   Half of the year is now over, and we are still experiencing Covid’s hold on our lives.  With the “over 55” buyer at a higher risk for this disease, many buyers have stalled their home search.  Buyers are out looking, but not in the numbers of previous summers.  With this softening, many more options are available. 

 

Trilogy Vineyards, first constructed in 2006, will number +/-1050 homes when completed.  Trilogy Vineyards is a resort lifestyle, with the beautiful Club Los Meganos at its core.  Indoor/Outdoor member dining, indoor/outdoor pools, tennis/bocce courts are all part of Trilogy living.  Home’s range from 1460-3000+ square feet.  The many gated villages surround the resort; HOA monthly dues are currently $346/month.  You can build your dream home, which is a great experience!  However, if you purchase somebody else’s dream, you may save yourself money,   frustration of upgrade selection, and rear yard installation.   One of Trilogy Vineyard’s most popular models is the Costa Dorada, brought back by buyer demand.  There are now 2 for re-sales, down from 4, ranging from $765K-$815K.  Click for TRILOGY VINEYARD Listings


Summerset homes are older, and may not have updated features.  However, homes are gently used, and start at a price point significantly less than Trilogy Vineyards.  Summerset’s 2000+ homes have the 27-hole Brentwood Golf Club, running throughout the communities.  (This golf course is public, so the community does NOT support the course’s operation.)  HOA monthly dues range from $95-$155, depending on community.  There  are 2 golf course homes for sale priced at $600K & $699K.  Summerset homes range in size from 980 – 2600+ sq. ft; something for every budget!  Click for SUMMERSET Listings


Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards are my focus, so call me at 925-852-1659.    I will answer your questions, provide you community tours, or keep you updated on home availability.   Stay safe & check back often for updates.

MAY 2020 - Trilogy Vineyard's & Summerset Re-Sales

Posted On: May 1st, 2020 9:46PM

UPDATED 5/23/2020 -   HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!   May is normally a month of preparing for graduations, weddings, Memorial Day parties & vacations.  This month, we’re focusing on the easing of restrictions, and ways to social distance.  Great news --- buyers can now view occupied homes!  This was a huge win, as many buyers want to “feel” the home, before they write an offer.  Open Houses & Broker Tours are still NOT allowed.  Also, no more than 2 buyers in home, at one time.  Summerset & Trilogy Vineyard home sales were slowed these last 2 months, as both buyers/sellers are the age most impacted by the virus.  Restrictions are easing, so if you want to view a home in person or via virtual tour, give me a call.

 

Trilogy Vineyard’s & Summerset are located 50 miles East of San Francisco, in Brentwood.  Both “over 55” communities offer buyers a single family home, with many choices in sizes & features.  Our farmer’s market & U-Pick cherry farms are now open!  Brentwood is close to shopping, restaurants, medical, and BART.

 

Summerset is the oldest of the two communities, built from 1994-2005.   Summerset has 26 floor plans, over 2,000 homes.  The homes are centered around the 27-hole Brentwood Golf Club. (Which is Public, and now open for play! (effective 5-4-2020.)   Summerset has 4 gated communities, each community with bocce, tennis, pool, clubhouse and many activities. However, Summerset clubhouses are currently closed, because of Covid 19.  Click for SUMMERSET Listings


Trilogy Vineyard’s homes were built starting in 2006, and they are still being constructed; when complete, the community will number around 1100 homes.   Trilogy Vineyards is a resort centered lifestyle, bordered by grapevines & olive trees. Homes range from 1460 -3000+ square feet.  The many gated villages surround Club Los Meganos (the main clubhouse, restaurant, spa, and tennis courts)   However, Club Los Megano is currently closed, because of Covid 19! Building your own dream is a great experience; but if you can purchase somebody else’s dream, you usually save yourself money & frustration of rear yard landscaping.
