Having grown up in Santee, I know all of the neighborhoods, and even since moving to the next town over (La Mesa), being in real estate and having family still in Santee, I've continuously kept up with the new construction throughout the neighborhoods over the years. As we all know, Santee has grown significantly in the last decade. Besides the fact, but I've always been more partial to the west side of Santee, probably since I grew up in the West Hills neighborhood. Come 2005- The Treviso condominium community was built near the 52 freeway off of West Hills Parkway and Mission Gorge(near Pure Flo) by William Lyon Homes. I visited Kmart here as a kid with my parents and remember seeing demolition clearing the site and later beginning construction on Treviso. Then touring the model homes several times when they were completed and immediately I fell in love with the gorgeous property.
Last August I sold 26 Via Montisi, which was a former model home for the builder- and the largest floor plan in the complex of the 5 different floor plans offered. I learned all the ins and outs and comparisons of Treviso versus the other new Santee communities for sale that were our competition, as I was in a competitive market with a seller that was up against several distressed properties and more than ever needed top dollar. While all of the other new communities (Sky Ranch, River Walk, Morningside, etc), all have their individual advantages, Treviso truly has a great central location being seconds from the 52 freeway and 125. It's private, has low HOA fees, each unit has its own trash bins(may not sound like a big deal but if you're a homeowner would you rather walk to a community dumpster with your trash or use the trash bin in your garage?), and last but not least, beautiful well maintained and private property grounds. Not to mention, over the course of the listing I met dozens of neighbors and homeowners via open houses and just frequenting the property that I can truly say were a pleasure to encounter and very friendly.
I sold 26 Via Montisi for $355,000- which may be the highest sold in the complex since the down turn of the market. Come today nearly a year later and another unit, same floor plan just sold for slightly under mine, which shows what great value there is for the size and community. However surprisingly there are several units for sale of the smallest floor plan in the complex- 2bedroom/ 2bath/1,015 square feet offered $230k and below, with the lowest priced short sale unit asking $185,000. Do the math and these are great units to invest in right now- this is thus far, the lowest they've sold for so far in the Treviso. Truly a great opportunity- What better time than the present to buy at the lowest yet? Message me today for more info on floor plans and availability.
**Note, I haven't personally lived here, but these are my thoughts based on selling here, frequenting here, and speaking with people that live here.
