    Newsletter Update for March 2019:

    The homes for sale in the Summit had a typical “seasonal” uptick during the past couple of months. After we were able to get through the holiday season, the market bounced back and the time it’s taking to sell Summit homes and real estate in Valencia is condensing.

    Currently, you can find the Summit Homes that are on the market for sale, to see what your competition could possibly be, – I have built that page to show the currently active, the summit homes under contract and those homes which have sold in the Valencia Summit over the past 90 days.

    Exposure is critical when it comes to today’s selling of a Valencia Summit home. We live here and know that having your home in front of the most eyeballs helps that home sell quicker, for more money and with the best in seller advantage than other competing homes.

    The Summit does bring an awesome feeling to those who we bring to look to buy here and become all of our neighbors. I get the comments, no matter what the season, “Wow – awe – and great reflections such as these.”

    Something that is not talked about enough related to the home buyers that are being shown, is the paseo system that cuts through and above the park. It’s really a site to see but is unable to be expounded upon if the real estate agent does not live here.

    There you go – enjoy the resource. Call me when ready.

    San Marino Homes in the Valencia Summit

    Iconically Styled homes are what I think of when driving through the Summit and San Marino Homes. The White homes with the red roofs would be those which are considered the San Marino Homes.

    Summit Floorplans in Valencia – San Marino – Click to view the floor plans and the different elevations for the San Marino Homes.

    There are 4 different floorplans, Plans 71, 72, 73 and 74. Of these floorplans, there are several different elevations (exterior designs) available.

    The plan 74 is the largest floor plan offered in the San Marino homes. 1901 square feet, two-story home with three bedrooms, 3 baths, den and family room. There was an option at build out where the New Homebuyer could have chosen for a bedroom 4/master bedroom retreat den/bedroom 3.

    The plan 73 in the San Marino homes measured out to be a 1683 square feet single level home with three bedrooms, den/master bedroom retreat, two baths, and a family room. The Den option other than the retreat, caused the den to be closed off, apart from the mast bedroom with two entrances/exits of its own, if the new home buyer selected this option at build out.

    The San Marino Plan 72 Home was 1534 square feet, a single story home with two bedrooms, den/bedroom 3 and two baths. During build out, when the homes were being sold as new, there was a third bedroom option available, which would have replaced the den.

    San Marino Plan 71, was the smallest variety of the homes located in the San Marino of the Valencia Summit. They measured out to be 1312 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There was no other option for an additional bedroom or den/office space with this model of San Marino.

    A word about the Summit Home Owners Association

    When purchasing the residential real estate in any of the communities where there is a Home Owners Association(HOA) in place, be aware that you cannot change much of anything within public view without getting their approval first. Some of the homeowner’s associations charge for this “approval” process and some do not.

    There are other aspects of owning real estate within their communities where you may not be able to change a simple plant without approval. To change the paint scheme on a San Marino home, from white exteriors to another color, that would most definitely not be approved by the HOA board of directors.

    These are examples of items that HOA’s are good for, and in some people’s minds, bad for.

    Chelsea Collection Homes in the Valencia Summit

    When we first moved to the Valencia Summit, this was the type of home we first bought. We found quickly, at that time that most of the other kids in the neighborhood were older than our kids. We also found out that we were able to get used to high traffic noise when owning a home that is next to Valencia Blvd. 🙂

    Summit Floorplans in Valencia – The Chelsea Collection

    View the most current listings within the Summit’s Chelsea Homes.

    There are five different types of Chelsea Collection homes that were built, each with a few different elevations. Elevations in real estate refer to the exterior outward design of the particular home. Some may refer to this as “curb appeal”, for they can vary quite a bit from each other. The different elevations were selected at build out for when the homes were newly being built.

    The Chelsea Models are plan 81, plan 82, plan 83, plan 84 and plan 85.

    The Chelsea Model Plan 81 offered 1522 square feet in a single story configuration. Two bedrooms with a den/bedroom 3 and two and one-half bathrooms. There was a couple of different options to build out what was offered to the new home buyer. One was the option third bedroom without an extension (additional square footage). Then there was an option bedroom extension that upped the square footage on the Chelsea model 81 to 1610 total square feet.

    On the Chelsea Model Plan 82, the home had 1868 square feet and was also a single story. There were three bedrooms, two and one-half bathrooms, and a family room. This Chelsea plan 82 also had another option for additional square footage offered from the home builder to the new home buyer. That was an option bedroom extension, increasing the size of the home to 1997 square feet. In most cases, without this additional bedroom 2 square footage, the bedroom would have been quite small.

    The Chelsea Collection Plan 83 model steps up the square footage of the home to 2098 square feet. There were no additional bedrooms or extensions available on this model of Chelsea. These homes were two stories and had three bedrooms, two and one-half bathrooms with a family room. The master bedroom is located upstairs on this model. There is also an open ceiling from downstairs to the upstairs landing. I have seen that some of the homeowners on this model had enclosed the open area with doors to create an additional space/bedroom/office/den where the open ceiling from downstairs would have been.

    The Chelsea Plan 84 was a 2351 square foot residence, which was two stories with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a family room. This home had three bedrooms upstairs and one down below with a full bathroom. The Chelsea plan 84 is a very popular model of home because of the full downstairs bathroom and bedroom with the other bedrooms upstairs. On the floor plans for the Chelsea’s in the Valencia Summit, you will see a descriptive word “balcony” that is written. A more up to date word for that space is going to be a walkway where the lower room is able to be viewed. I have seen some Chelsea owners add additional square footage to their homes by laying flooring down to encase the open ceiling areas, in some cases. This was our first Valencia Summit home, BTW.

    The Chelsea Plan 85 is the largest Chelsea model that is available. At 2817 square feet, this model was originally built with four bedrooms and an option fifth bedroom/den, with three bathrooms and a family room. As can be seen from the floor plan, there are Living Rooms and Family rooms. The Family room is next to the kitchen in these Chelsea models. The Living room is the more “formal” space. The new home buyer of Chelsea’s back in the late 1980’s could have selected to have the option Master Bedroom retreat as well as an optional 5th bedroom, for an extra fee of course. This would have happened during the new owner selecting options related to his new home.

    In a lot of Chelsea Cases – the garages are really substantial. They are larger than what you’d find with the new construction today. While most current garages are tight after vehicles are parked inside, where movement is very hindered due to the lacking space around the parked cars, in the Valencia Summit, The Chelsea and the Windermere, the home builders gave additional space around the vehicles making movement much easier.

    Windermere Homes in the Valencia Summit

    Last but not least – the Windermere Homes in the Valencia Summit. These are the largest models of homes in the Summit of Valencia. As with a lot of the master-planned area of the Summit, some of these homes have views. They are also close to the Valencia Park and afford the residents access to multiple swimming pools and some of the best walking paths (paseos) that Valencia has to offer.

    If none are currently available, still reach out to me. That goes for any type of home you want that is not currently for sale. I’m not above knocking on doors to see is someone wants to sell their Valencia home to you. What I won’t do is knock on doors without having a real true buyer that has been approved and really wants to buy the particular home I’m door knocking. I don’t like being bothered when at home and I’m sure you don’t either. Unless it’s good news, such as having a ready to go buy for your home.
