Hi there...The property options, prices and areas vary significantly throughout San Diego. Urban, Coastal, Luxury, Residential...as far as open plan/lofts most of these are found downtown SD, however there are a few in the coastal areas. I would love to speak with you when convenient to get a better sense of what you are looking for and following a 5 minute phone call I can start putting together some properties for you to consider. I have been licensed for 22 years, and have a good sense of most areas throughout SD.
The city of La Mesa has a lot to offer, especially within your budget: $500,000 won't easily buy a 3-bedroom house in North/South Park, but it will in La Mesa. And La Mesa's downtown is gaining some traction as an entertainment destination. The La Mesa/Spring Valley school district has some very well-regarded schools that your future child may even be able to walk to when the time comes.
I do, however, agree with other posters' advice not to worry overmuch about school districts at this point, since you're 6 or so years away from needing a school. There is one highly desirable district elementary school located in North Park but your budget will not go very far in that particular neighborhood. Quite a few young families in metro San Diego opt for various public charter schools within San Diego Unified. Private schools are of course an option if your funds are not limited...
As to resale, outside of the pricey beach or north city areas your best bet is probably the metro neighborhoods of North/South Park or University/Normal Heights. But any house will sell easily if it's priced correctly!... more
Encinitas or anywhere North of the 8 would meet your requirements. I recommend visiting your interested area during day, night, and on Friday or Saturday night. One thing about city living that most people hate is lack of parking, noise, crimes. In Encinitas you can catch the coaster into town. No need to drive, close to the beach, laid back, and has local bars etc.
Check crime stats of area. Crime of late in San Diego has been on the increase.... more
hmmm...I live close by to that complex...but am not sure I can give you a patent answer. Refridgerators are the individual property of every condo owner - so each unit is likely to have a different fridge.
If you have a specific unit in mind...I can try to help find that out for you. My number is (619) 379-8616.... more
I have seen the other fake questions, and flagged them, and commented on several of them..........but they are posted by a fake person called "Eric" - not someone who clearly identifies himself as a trulia employee.........This isn't one of those questions....and.....there is no way to prove (no idea why you suggest) that trulia is behind those other ridiculous questions..........
And............Yes, I saw the responses on those other threads... ....What's sad is all the agents jumping in because they really think a live buyer in the 1.2-1.5 million dollar price range is actually asking about their city online..........
In addition to the freeway noise, keep an ear out for the jet noise. That area can get some heavy jet fly over noise from Lindbergh Field. What boundaries are you considering Golden Hill? I'm not sure if North of highway 94 is considered South Park or Golden Hill. South Park has seen more trendy restaurants and fixed up historic homes. I personally really like the area North of hwy 94 (I think that's South Park?). To me the main downside is the jet flyover noise.... more
Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos, 4S Ranch and Poway are all part of the award winning Poway Unified School District which will give superior opportunities to your daughter.
These areas consistently hold their value because of the highly rated school district.
Rancho Penasquitos is the most inland and has houses available ranging from $400,000 to $1,050,000. The average price is $655,000. You might like the 4 bedroom 3 bath, 1947 sq. ft that is priced around $500,000.
Most homes have little or no HOA or Mello Roos fees.
We don't hear the jets landing or taking off and we typically enjoy temperatures that are 10-15 degrees lower than Scripps Ranch, Poway or Rancho Bernardo. Penasquitos is about a 15 -20 minute commute form MCAS Miramar.
I'd highly recommend you find a Realtor who wants to help you succeed and start looking at houses. The pictures you see online really don't give you a good idea of the home or the neighborhood. The best way to find where you want to live is to start seeing houses.

As stated, you will need to take it off the market. You will also need to make sure it'snot listed other places online as well. I'm also curious why you wish to refinance with an FHA loan, do you have one now? If you have a current FHA mortgage there may be streamline options available to you.

I am a Father of five beautiful children who have blessed me with almost a dozen gorgeous grandchildren. 6 of my Grandchildren have and continue to populate the Encinitas, Solona Beach school sphere of influence. Enough cannot be said about these school districts. Probably the best in San Diego.
My five children grew up in Vista and we still own our family home of thirty years there. When our kids grew up it was the best school district in San Diego. But soon after they moved on to college the whole district fell apart.
OMG! Whatever heppened?
It surely couldn't have been the quality of students or the parental leadership could it? Or maybe it was the quality of the faculty or the administration? My point is your schools are only as good as the parents, teachers and administration that lead them.
You as parents are the leaders. Take responsibility! Don't rely on the teachers to take on your role as a parent as you drop them off in the morning and expect miracles when you pick them up or see them at dinner when you get home from work that evening.
Our school, Monte Vista Elementary, had the reputation of being the most private public school in the Vista Unified School District in the 80's and 90's where we boasted of 96% parental involvement and participation.
It's time that parents quit worrying about where the best schools are and start focusing on making where your kids go to school the best.
Sorry about the rant but it's time that parents start stepping up and taking responsibility instead of relegating it to the teachers who are only part time babysitters.... more
Where do you live now? Are you looking for something similar or are you "upgrading?" What types of activities and amenities do you want to be able to tap into? Do you want urban or beach? That said...Downtown or Pacific/Ocean Beach.... more
