Rancho Mission Viejo Releases Detailed Pricing, Gavilan Starts at $440,900

Rancho Mission Viejo has released specific pricing for each model within the various builder tracts.  Detailed pricing (as well as model-specific information such as bedroom and bath counts and square footage) is available for Sendero and Gavilan.  We’re not going to cut and paste the prices here, we doubt the folks at Rancho Mission Viejo would appreciate that — go on over to RMV’s site and take a look for yourself.

For the many of you who are wondering what the cheapest ticket into Gavilan might be — the least expensive option to buy in Gavilan is the Standard Pacific Bungalow Plan 1: two bedrooms, two baths in 1,276 square feet starting at $440,900 or $345 per square foot.  Floorplan here.  Builder site here.
