How to Choose a Real Estate Property in San Diego

This is a bit of a clincher because while there is primo real estate in San Diego to be found, the demand is high, and the supply is low.  That’s great for the market, but finding that “just right” home in such a competitive market can be tough.  Not to worry, here are a few tips for finding the best San Diego real estate:

San Diego Real Estate FAQs

What factors are affecting the San Diego real estate market?

One of the most significant factors is population growth. At the time of this writing, the population of SD is over 3.3 million, which is a .73% increase from the previous year. Combine this influx with limited real estate inventory, and you’re dealing with a big competitive market that is constantly impacting San Diego real estate.  Other factors, such as increased interest rates, economic conditions, real estate taxes, zoning regulations, etc., can also influence the market.

Is San Diego currently a seller’s market for real estate?

The market fluctuates, but San Diego is experiencing a strong seller’s market at the time of this writing.  The demand for homes in SD has been consistently high, with ongoing limited inventory. This creates a robust environment where sellers in SD have the upper hand.

What types of homes are commonly available in San Diego?

That’s another fabulous aspect of San Diego – we have it all!  From ultra-lavish to quaint little bungalows on the beach, real estate here is as diverse as the city itself.

How do San Diego’s real estate prices compare to other major California cities?

Regardless of multi-million dollar residential property sales, San Diego has a surprisingly low price point for real estate compared to other California cities. For instance, SD’s median home price (to date) is $910,000, whereas CA homes in cities like San Jose and San Francisco fetch a median price of $1.25 million.

What are the best family-friendly neighborhoods in San Diego?

More great news on the San Diego real estate front – there are tons of family-friendly neighborhoods with terrific schools sprinkled throughout SD County.  For instance, Carmel Valley is appealing to families because of all of its recreational activities for kids, spacious parks, and superior schools.  Point Loma is also a gem of an area that attracts families looking for a quiet, coastal neighborhood with the beach just minutes away.  A bit of deeper research or a sit-down with your real estate agent will illustrate all the various areas families are craving to settle into in San Diego.  

How does the home-buying process work in San Diego?

It works very similarly as it does in most other states in the US.  The typical process is, first, securing the money for the home or getting pre-approved for a home loan.  Once you and/or your real estate agent find the available home of your dreams, it’s time to make an offer.  If accepted, you’ll enter into a period of escrow when financing is secured, home inspections are done, and ancillary negotiations are made.  Once all the wrinkles are ironed out, real estate documents are prepared and filed, funds are transferred from buyer to seller, and you’ve made a bonafide purchase of real estate in San Diego.

Should I be aware of specific regulations or building codes in San Diego?

Yes, there are several. For example, the California Building Code establishes requirements for construction projects.  SD also has its own set of zoning regulations which establish how land is utilized in different regions of the city.  There are also regulations about multi-unit buildings, commercial structures, retail spaces, etc.  Talk with your real estate agent to get the whole skinny on SD real estate regulations.

What are the popular architectural styles of homes in San Diego?

San Diego might be best known for their historic Spanish Colonial revival-style homes, but the city offers up a plethora of other different architectural styles.  For instance, you can find hints of Spain and Italy in some Mediterranean-inspired homes.  You’ll also find Craftsman, Ranch styles, Tudor-style homes, and Mid-Century Modern. There really is no limit to the imaginative styles of architecture you’ll find in San Diego.
