There are 52 new build houses in Bay Ho/Clairemont. The open house was today and I popped round to have a look. Starting at 894,000, which seems expensive for the area. The 3 model homes were lovely but massively upgraded and in a prime location of the development. I imagine the infinity pool is not standard...

My friend told me that most of the houses are already sold. Anyone have any inside information?

I don't have inside info but I went today to look at them, just for giggles, since I live nearby. They are beautiful places imo -- if you are a fan of open floorplans and "blurring" the boundary between inside and outside (which I am), they did a pretty amazing job.

It's in a "modest" neighborhood, but that pricing actually seems pretty decent for what you get compared to Bay Park as a whole. (They are in Bay Ho but pretty close to the Bay Park border). I'm seeing all kinds of places coming on the market in this area for over $1 mil these days -- most of them not as nice as the Tavara Ridge homes.

Anyway, the main reason I replied is that I can answer one thing: they aren't all sold. They're doing them in phases and there are still many places left unclaimed.

The website has no pics of the model houses.

They really crammed it with very ugly furniture. 950k seems pretty reasonable though, and it is a nice design.

Some thread on NextDoor was talking about the properties and said that 5/6 of the 1st phase are gone. Although that was a couple of weeks ago. One other comment on NextDoor said that the base price gets very low-end fixtures. Although I am not sure if that is believable as NextDoor gets really, really odd comments from people.

The houses are definitely high priced for that neighborhood, and the HOA is a very non-Clairemont feature. The rep claimed this was not Bay Ho, but Clairemont. I guess Bay Ho is quite an undefined area - the east boundary could either be Clairemont drive or Moraga. These homes are assigned to the same school as my house, but no one in the area seems to want to send their kids to Cadman. And I was surprised that they said 'excellent' schools in the advertising...

Haha nextdoor... that's where I found out about it too. There's some useful info on there, in general, but it's a little demoralizing to learn how whiny and/or nuts a lot of my neighbors are.

Good point on the upgrades, they clearly tricked out the models so they would be way more. How much, I don't know. And as far as the selling... fwiw it when I was there this weekend, they were part sold out of phase 2 but most of the units are still to come up for sale.
