What stage in construction are these homes in? Are they already fully framed? Or are they still dirt lots with no foundation?

I think these are partially framed at this point

Dang! I’m old enough to remember when Cetara was first released at $1.75 base  :P

Seems like eons ago.

Nowadays homes a bit larger than half the size of Cetera are at $1.75M base.  :P

Imagine being one of the people that bought at that price or even better, the 1st phase view lot :sigh:

Cetara has the best city lights at the Groves without having to go to the Vistas.  Even at some of the Vistas, you don’t always get a straight city view like all the Cetara view lots do.

For those that are still tracking, I got on the priority list in Jan of last year and got in on Phase 11.  Feels like WTF prices but this is probably our forever home.  Good luck out there and looking forward to meeting my TI neighbors.

Congrats. Shea Homes is known for Porsche of real estate. Everything is an upgrade. To get the upgrades this kind of homes deserve, it’ll be in $3.8-$4mil range. 🤑🤑🤑🤑

I was thinking maybe they'll slow down the aggressive price hikes per phase but they're keeping steady with about 100-150k increase in base pricing each phase.

Plan 1 - 2.55

Plan 2 - 2.7

Plan 3 - 2.635

Base Price might hit 3mill when it's all said and done if they keep this up.

How many of the future releases will be regular lots at or close to base pricing?

3 phases left + buildout

I see about 7 base lots left. Theres another 8 across but I believe those lots will have a premium since they dont have anyone behind them and also some are at the end of the cul de sac but the size of the lots look about the same.

Theres only one big lot left at the end of the cul de sac in the last phase.

The place I'm going has had their homes see even more agressive increases in base prices. At first I thought they were just doing this because of demand, but I think it's because the price of their supplies is going up rapidly and they have to be ahead of that.... unfortunately. It only means options are going up too I'll bet. I plan on letting the builder put in all flooring (something I have not done in the last homes I have bought because by the time I get there, not only do I have to deal with finding a good contractor, but I'll have to pay for the increase in cost of goods and labor). I'm kicking myself for not buying the model because I wanted full length upper cabinets  and I can do what I want for $100K less. That model is a super bargain now, pool, bbq, etc all in, and rent back for at least 6 months. They even reduced the price some because it was listed on mls. Least I have the base under what it  is now.
