It also have a variety of homes to choose from. You can easily find a nice condo, townhome or apartment for a decent price. If you are looking to buy something, the homes are usually older and have more character - many will probably have additions. Some are reasonably priced compared to most areas in the city.
Its easy to get on to most San Diego freeways, 5, 805, 163, etc.
If you have school age children, then I suggest to do you homework. Some schools may or may not work for you. Yet, of course it all depends on what you are looking for in education.
If you have any questions about the area, I would be happy to answer any and send you some properties.
The homes are generally older but are also more affordable so a pro and a con. You definitely get more for your money in the area but like everything else in life you get what you pay for so keep that in mind. I have sold a number of homes over the years in Clairemont and most of my clients have been very happy with their homes and the area. Clairemont has very distinct areas within itself so you want to do your homework on the specific area within 92117 you are looking. I always advise people to drive around during the week during the day and at night and then on the weekend during the day and at night. It gives you a good idea of what the neighborhood is really like at all days and hours of the week.
If you have any further questions, give me a call and I'd be happy to answer them for you.
The yards are always much bigger twith the older homes than the new tracks which hardly give you an inch of yard. You can look for a dated home, perhaps get a deal and make it "your own" or find one that has been redecorated and is "turnkey"- so you have some options.
If I may be of help to you in any way, please give me a call. I would be happy to send over some MLS listings for you to see.
Good luck on your new home!
