Talega Real Estate: Homes & Condos in San Clemente
As you head east from the ocean and Interstate 5, you will discover the master-planned area of Talega. Boasting over 40 communities amongst 3,510 acres of rolling hills and canyons, Talega real estate satisfies a variety of lifestyle choices and price ranges. With the latest in designer upgrades and a fantastic natural setting, Talega real estate offers a modern living experience previously missing from San Clemente.
There are 42 distinct communities throughout the Talega real estate market. The wide range of developments with varying price ranges, features and amenities makes Talega real estate unique as it fits many different lifestyles. Talega residents pay an HOA assessment to the Talega Master HOA, and buyers should be aware that condo communities in Talega have a second HOA assessment for the individual amenities associated with that community. The Master HOA dues are approximately $170 per month for all residents, and the community HOA can be up to $200 per month. As Talega is a master-planned area, residents are also responsible for Mello-Roos assessments payable with their property tax bills; Talega’s effective property tax rate with Mello-Roos is approximately 1.5%.
Talega homes are for the risk-adverse buyer looking for the latest upgrades in their new home along with a peaceful setting away from the bustle of the beach areas. While it is a straight shot down Avenida Pico to the beach, Talega real estate is a few miles from the ocean, so people looking for the coastal lifestyle prevalent throughout San Clemente should look elsewhere. Also, Talega is a master-planned area, so the homes tend to be closer together, and the properties on larger lots tend to be a bit more expensive. Because Talega is newer and almost completely developed, there are not a lot of opportunities as in other San Clemente areas to buy a property and upgrade it or tear it down. Talega is one of the few newer neighborhoods that remain in South Orange County; therefore, demand will outstrip supply in the long-term.

Talega Condos and Townhomes
Talega features some of the newest condo communities in Orange County. The majority of Talega condos are two and three-story floor plans, with the exception of a few single-story units and the condos of Seagarden; Seagarden is the only condo option out of the four communities in the senior (55+) Talega Gallery. Buyers interested in purchasing a condo should keep in mind that they will be responsible for two HOA assessments – one from the individual condo community, and a second from the Talega Master Association.
The views of the surrounding hills and canyons are spectacular from many condos, and the Alassio and Santalana communities enjoy a close location to the Talega Golf Club and Talega Village Center. The Talega rental market is one of the most active in San Clemente due to the private location and family-friendly environment, so those looking for an investment property will have plenty of potentially lucrative options amongst Talega condos.
