Home Buying in 92116>Question Details

Kelly, Home Buyer in San Diego, CA

my husband and i are looking to purchase a small single family DETACHED home in central san diego area.

Asked by Kelly, San Diego, CA Wed Oct 1, 2008

i am interested to hear from those who know more about the market about which specific neighborhoods are not only a decent buy right now, but those areas that will be a better investment in the future. what areas would you suggest?

Help the community by answering this question:


On the cheaper side is Allied Gardens, which is part of 92120, very central and somewhat isolated from any bad areas. On the more expensive side but always in demand is nothern Kensington in 92116.

Fred, I have to say that recommendation for Zilpy was EXCELLENT. Kelly, I suggest you check it out. It's just what I have been looking for. Totally breaks down the neighboorhoods, even into BLOCKS.

David has a point about this possible purchase for an investment or for you to live in. You can search good neighborhooods for free at
http://www.fredeckertgroup.com and http://www.zilpy.com
In addition, you can find lots of useful area and real estate information at the link below. When you go to the http://www.fredeckertgroup.com site, you will see a free seminar that we do on buying real estate (on the right side under my http://www.trulia.com connection). You might benefit from attending.

Hi Kelly,

Well, there are several areas in central San Diego that are both decent and have great investment potential. It's a great time to buy and there are tons of great opportunties to take advantage of. In today's market it's very important to get your financing in order first. Do you know what price range you will be looking in? If it'd be benefial to you, I'd be happy to send you a list of properties for sale in these areas. All I would need is a brief description of what your criteria and price point. Let me know.

Happy House Hunting!

Do you plan to live in it or is it for investment only? Also, what is your budget and do you need a property manager?
