UPDATE: Please contact us for updated searches of affordable homes in San Diego.

Last week I discussed what homes you can purchase in San Diego for about $700,000. This week I want to share some examples of Affordable Homes For Sale in San Diego County.

Affordable housing looks different in every part of the country. Unfortunately we don’t have the same purchasing power here in San Diego as you might have in Texas or Florida but let’s quickly look at a few options.

Spring Valley Condo For Sale – If you are willing to purchase a condo in the Spring Valley area which is about a 15 minute drive from downtown San Diego here is a lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,050 square foot condo listed for $240,000. Not all complexes are VA approved but it’s certainly possible to find some nice options at a reasonable price.

It’s located in City Heights, about a 5-10 minute drive from Downtown San Diego. This home is features 1 bedroom, 1 bath and 380 square feet for $339,000.

The reality is that most people will require a home that is larger than 380 square feet. If you’re willing to live a little further outside of the city there are some excellent options in El Cajon, Escondido, Oceanside and Chula Vista.

Oceanside Home For Sale – To give you an idea of location it is located about 40 minutes from Downtown San Diego but if you’re unfamiliar to the area this is not a big deal. Many people who live up in North County rarely come south. You will find a lot of people are able to work and commute in the area they live in and avoid long work commutes. This home in Oceanside is priced at $425,000, it features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1,488 square feet and a 2 car garage.

Chula Vista Home For Sale – Here is one of the newest and lowest priced homes currently for sale in Chula Vista. This home features 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 1,410 square feet and a 2 car garage. Priced at $459,900.

Mission Valley Condo For Sale – One of my favorite areas in San Diego that I think is a great long term investment and will always be in demand if you need to rent is Mission Valley. You can still find a few VA and FHA approved condo options for sale. This condo is currently for sale in Mission Valley, it features 1 bedroom, 1 bath & 530 square feet. It is listed for sale at $279,900.

These are 4 examples of homes that would be considered affordable first time home buyer opportunities in San Diego. If you’re interested in learning more about the home buying process or need assistance buying or selling real estate in San Diego please contact us.

Real Estate Investment Opportunities in San Diego County

We are experiencing a strong real estate market right now with many great investment opportunities out there – but you have be proactive and seek them out. To get a leg up on the competition you must think outside the box and be willing to do what other property investors are not.


Real Estate Investment Opportunities in San Diego County


One such example is buying the ugliest home on the block and improving it. Not only can you find such homes at bargain prices, you can greatly improve their resale value with minimal investment on your part. Another option is buying a 2 bedroom / 1 bath home and then adding 700 square feet and an extra bedroom and bathroom. Turning a 2 bed / 1 bath home into a 3 bed / 2 bath means you are creating equity on your property instead of just sitting back and hoping the price goes up – something every investor should strongly consider.

In a hot real estate market there is no shortage of investors looking to make a quick buck, but few are willing to go the extra mile and add additional square footage to an existing property to significantly increase its resale value.

We are happy to show you real-world examples of this and work with you to find these types of opportunities. Below are two such examples from recent projects. As always please keep us in mind for all of your real estate needs and don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help or have a question.

Downtown 92101 Market Update

A quick update on Downtown San Diego Inventory for sale.

Downtown 92101 Market Update

The Downtown real estate market continues to stay hot. We have not seen anything sell for less than $500 / foot in a few years now. We continue to see an upward swing in value and I would expect it to continue for the next few years. As long as interest rates remain reasonable and we see values in the $500-1,000 square foot continue to see sales and new listings come on line. When you compare San Diego to other international markets values in San Diego are a bargain. Locals may have a difficult time seeing this but that is why so many foreigners are coming in and purchasing property as quickly as they can. It’s a no-brainer and real estate in the United States continues to be one of the safest places to park your money.

On another note, my wife was sworn in as an attorney here in the state of California last Friday. Just what California needs, another attorney, right? I am so proud of her hard work. You can view the video I took here. If you didn’t know, she is an attorney from Mexico and learning a 2nd language is one thing but being able to master it to the point to pass an exam like the CA Bar is an amazing accomplishment. Of the 85 foreign educated attorneys who took the exam. She was one of the 14 who passed! Way to go Erika!

She is currently working for a law firm here in San Diego as a paralegal. SO if you’re looking for an attorney who is licensed to practice law in California as well as Mexico she would love to hear from you!

Lastly, I hope everyone on the East Coast gets through this storm. Stay safe to all of my friends and family!
