The peak home-buying seasons of Spring and Summer haven’t arrived yet, but home prices are already perking up in places like Brentwood, as house-hunters of all ages – but especially seniors – beat the rush and make the decision to acquire their dream homes. As you can see from the chart below, median home prices in Brentwood have already left the winter doldrums behind and are closing in on $350,000, reflecting this increasing demand:
The active adult communities of Summerset and Trilogy at The Vineyards are key drivers of this upward price trend. Boasting an array of stylish home designs ideally suited to the 55+ lifestyle, these vibrant communities feature dozens, if not hundreds, of recreational options. Both are just a short drive from all the cultural attractions of the Bay Area and Sacramento. And both communities are within easy reach of the California Delta, a paradise for boaters, anglers, birders and anyone else who enjoys the tranquil beauty of this watery wonderland. Ask around and you’re sure to find plenty of residents who have a boat moored in a nearby marina…and may even offer to take you out for a cruise! In my experience as a realtor, Summerset and Trilogy residents are some of the friendliest around, and it’s always a pleasure when my work takes me out to see them in Brentwood.
With over 2000 homes, Summerset is divided into four developments specifically designed for the 55+ set: Summerset 1, Summerset Palms, Summerset Vista and Summerset Orchards. Each has its own home owners association, private clubhouse and recreational amenities. The centerpiece of the community is an impressive 18 hole golf course accessible to all residents.
Trilogy at The Vineyards offers what I’d call a resort-style experience, with swimming pools, tennis courts, spas, cabanas, fine dining and even a meditation garden. At the heart of the community is Club Los Meganos, a 34,000 sq ft social and recreational center with its own athletic club and restaurants. There’s a touch of Old World charm about this place, reflected in details like its beautifully tended gardens, bocce courts and well-appointed billiards lounge.
