If you are looking for a second home to use prior to retirement you may want to consider a condo close to the beach that you can rent out when you aren't going to be here. The vacation rental market is pretty good and with rates what they are, finding one that meets your budget shouldn't be too difficult. Otay Mesa is not that sort of area. It's primarily single family residential, a little inland of the beach, and not typically suited for vacation rentals.
Oceanside, Encinitas, Solana, LaJolla, Pacific Beach and Mission Beach might be good options for you. Every beach area has a little different atmosphere and more information concerning what you are looking for would help.
If you would like me to set up an MLS search that fits your specific criteria I would be more than happy to do so. This will allow you to see properties that are currently on the market and get updated when new ones become available.
Give me a call or email.
I highly recommend San Diego. Rancho Bernardo is a great community. There are a number of Adult 55+ communities here. With the great weather, excellent health care available and always something to do around town San Diego is the perfect place to retire
You have a lot of options. It just depends on your lifestyle. Do you golf, fish, jog, bicycle, hike play tennis? Do you like to ski? Would you like to start surfing, kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding? Or do you prefer a more sedentary lifestyle i.e. playing cards, visiting casinos, tours. Perhaps your more into the finer cultural things in life i.e. plays, concerts, art museums, etc.
There's a place for any and/or all of these activities just about anywhere in San Diego you wish to live. But one things for sure. You have just about everything and anything you could ever imagine or wish for right here and it's all wiring less than an hours drive from the middle of San Diego.
I'm a very active 66 year old going on 22 according to my kids. My wife and I are very active and do just about everything from surfing everyday there's waves to walking the many vast sandy beaches or riding our bicycles along the coast.
We enjoy theater, music, art and especially love to travel. You can do all of this in San Diego quite quickly and easily. Our very user friendly international airport can put you in touch with the World without a tremendous amount of complication and our great mass transit system, Amtrack, Coaster and the trolly system can get you anywhere you want to go without having to get behind the wheel and get tied up in traffic for hours.
There's myriad choices for senior living. You can purchase your own single family home in any number of very upscale and comfortable neighborhoods, live in a condo, town home or downtown high-rise apartment or condo.
Or you could live in anyone of dozens of very well appointed and exclusive senior communities. The sky is the limit. Just think about the things you like to do and there's a place for you in San Diego. I would love to be your personal escort. Feel free to call me anytime at 760 815-6977 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also feel free to log onto our very user friendly websites.
We have communities which focus on horses, agriculture, golfing, water sports, urban, cities, beaches, art, culture, and more. Being in your age group I can speak to the active lifestyle our beautiful state has to offer you.
Depending on the type of community you would like, I believe California has one to offer you.
Have an amazing day!
What I can say about Otay Mesa is that it is a lovely community filled with newer homes. Being south of San Diego, you will get greater value for your dollar if you buy here than in a more central location.
Otay Mesa tends to be a bedroom community with a lot of families, but if your family is close by, then go for it!.
Let me know if I can help!
It starts with getting approved (if you need a mortgage), the location will be up to you, what are the things you are looking for in your retirement living?

Depending on your budget, you have so many neighborhoods to consider here, I guess it just depends on what you're envisioning for yourself in retirement. Did you want to be in your family's neighborhood or maybe just within a close drive? Were you looking for a house or condo?
I can send you some listings from the area your family is in, and from other neighborhoods if you like, to see what's available in your price range. I'm also here if you just have questions about San Diego or properties you see.

My husband and I choose to retire in the North inland part of the county. We like the warm sun, little to no fog, and the activities of the entire county are no more than 30 minutes away in any direction.
Depending on where your family is, how close you would like to be, and your interests, San Diego is a large area and offers everything (except hurricanes, tornadoes, and snow in your driveway)
Let me know if I can help you further,

There are many different environments in San Diego: Beach, Urban, Suburban and Rural. Which one of these environments would you prefer? Do yo want to live close to your family? Would you prefer a single family home or a condominium?
Now is a great time to buy, rates and prices are both low. This has never happened in the 30* years that I have been active in San Diego real estate.

But it all depends on what you are looking for. If you are a golfer, you can golf every day of of the week, or enjoy the beautiful beaches, and so much more.
I'd be happy to tell you more about San Diego, feel free to contact me directly or by email.
San Diego area is the best for retirement, I think.
