Thanks for your question...I sold new homes for over 3 years and am familiar with Pacific Communities as well as the specific community Renaissance) you are asking about. I can tap my resources and possibly talk to the original Sales Reps that were there at the time they were being built to get special information. Be advised that as it is a gated community, there will be an HOA assessment for maintenance. Don't worry though, it shouldn't be much. Have you also looked into Portofino or Stonegate?
Call me to get the information probably by Tuesday and I will be happy to help you out. As background information, I currently live in the AV and have been here for the last 20 years. My company, Troth Realtors was started over 50 years ago and is one of the largest REO/Foreclosure Agencies here. It is very important to find a knowledgeable, and dedicated "local specialist" to help you with this most important decision.
Not sure which Renaissance homes, but here is an overview for your review. Hope it opens under web reference and hope it helps.
