The answer to this could be several depending upon what you mean by 'exclusive' - I would agree that Rancho Santa Fe is the most exclusive with La Jolla and Del Mar being good seconds. Why do you ask?... more
My personal experience is that because of SDSU, you have to be weary of the mini-dorm situation which drove prices down several years ago as investment groups took a stranglehold on the area. Pleasant neighborhoods with families turned into home after home rented to students. The only ones who were really buying anything were the investment groups who were pretty ruthless at the low ball prices they were offering.
These guys were in their 20s and owned 30 plus properties.
Ironically, I feel the City of San Diego did more to help their effort than stop them as the City's attempts to curtail the mini-dorm situation scared off a lot of other would be buyers. The investment groups just dealt with the City and worked around the CIty's mini-dorm laws because they had such a large stake in the area.
I lived there in the Rolando area when I went to State, which is about a mile from Campanile - liked it as a student, but would not go back today even as an investor.
