While there may be a few families with children in the Talamore neighborhood, it’s fair to say that it’s more popular with folks who do not have young children. But, the pool, golf course and the proximity to Reservoir Park have been know to lure a few grandchildren to visit when school’s out!!
Homes in Talamore average in the mid $300k’s, although you occasionally see a sale over $400k. Our experience is that houses in the neighborhood are well built and represent a good value if you are looking for a golf community that is not gated. Most of the homes in the neighborhood were built in the 1990’s, but they’re all brick! It’s fair to say that homes in Talamore might sell for 10 – 20% more if they were located in a gated community; and that’s why we think there is a lot of value for folks who don’t have a preference between gated/non- gated. The condos in Talamore are known mostly for their rental success. Most if not all of the units are 2 BR . . . . . and range from about $125k to the high $100k’s. The sales prices are tied directly to the condition of the unit and whether the furnishings are included.
Talamore has nice clubhouse with a pool and cabana. Of course, the golf is fantastic. Talamore is very good course. You can choose to join Mid- South Talamore so that you have access to Mid South AND Talamore . . . . . . but there membership is not required in connection with property ownership. Plus, you can always play the Talamore course as it is open to the public. Perhaps best of all – Talamore is located at the edge of Reservoir Park with direct access to the Greenway Trail system.
