TULARE, Calif.  San Joaquin Valley Homes (SJV Homes) and Presidio Residential Capital recently held a grand opening celebration at Brighton, a $34 million, 30.7-acre community offering 114 detached single-family homes in northeast Tulare. Five homes have already been sold and two homes are currently under reservation. The average price of these homes will be in the low $300,000’s.

“Brighton is a highly anticipated neighborhood as we had an interest list of 170 people before we even started sales,” said Danny Garcia, vice president of sales at SJV Homes. “Our grand opening celebration was a true success and we expect these units to sell quickly.”

Located just a mile east of Highway 99, Brighton features five floor plans ranging from 1,658 to 3,205 square feet on lots averaging 7,300 with some home sites over 11,000 square feet. The community includes a neighborhood park and a small pond.

The property is located north of East Cartmill Avenue just west of Mooney Boulevard, which connects directly to Visalia, a major employment hub.

Founded in 2013 by Joe Leal, Jim Robinson and Randy Merrill, SJV Homes sold its 1,000th home in September 2017, making it one of the region’s most active homebuilders.

Brighton is SJV Homes’ 16th joint venture project with Presidio Residential Capital, a San Diego-based real estate investment company that funds 100 percent of the projects and operations of SJV Homes.
