3 New Home Communities in Encinitas Now Selling and More on the Way
Encinitas is seeing a surge in new home construction this spring with 3 new home communities that are now selling and four more that will come to market this year.
Fiore by Lennar, recently opened for sale their 28 new single family home community located near the coast in the Leucadia area. These new homes in Encinitas offer 4 to 5 bedrooms ranging from 3,249 to 5,169 square feet. Pricing has been released and homes are offered for sale from $1,200,000s to the $1,500,000s and have a low Mello Roos of Approximately $1,100 per year. How does this compare to prices of existing homes in the area? The Plan 2, which is a 4,351 sf 5 bedroom home is selling for $1,445,900 or $332/sf. Existing homes in the area between Coast Highway and the 5 are selling for $486/sf at an average price of $1,591,333 and average size of 3,290 sf. If you factor in $100,000 in upgrades, which is not necessarily required and another $50,000 for landscaping you are still only looking at approximately $366/sf. The homesites may be a bit smaller, however, you’ll have much control of finishing the home the way you want and take advantage of more updated floor plans and more energy efficient homes.
When buying a new construction home you should always have an evaluation of all market conditions and pricing in the immediate area. There is great value of working with a Realtor that knows new construction homes and can show you existing homes in the area to compare and determine whether your new investment is a smart one.
