May I suggest our interactive website http://www.fbs-pm.com/renter-services/rental-search/ This website can also be uploaded as a mobile version so you can see what's available on your smartphone including video tours of the houses, condos and apartments in which you have interest. This same interactive site allows you to apply online, assist you with our lease documents and get you moved in to your new home. Later you will have a secure place to pay your rent online and thereby never have a problem with late rent penalties. If you have a maintenance issue you can communicate the same way. We provide personal resident care with technological convenience.As you can imagine selections in the price range you mention get a lot of interest and get rented very quickly.
After you have gained some insight from our website please give FBS a call. Our closest office is our San Diego North County Office. It is minutes from your neighborhood of interest. We have helpful professionals that specialize in your rental customer needs. Phone number is 858-487-4004.
Good luck. Neil... more
It's ALWAYS the kitchen and bath (especially master) remodels that add the most value. However, make sure you don't over do it. If you put a $50k kitchen in a $75k house you'll never see the return on your investment.... more
From my office in Normal Heights near 30th and Adams it takes 13 minutes . . . door to sand. The question in San Diego real estate is, usually, "Am I still close enough to the ocean"? In the case of Normal Heights, I believe you are.... more
If you are talking about highest priced area then the Rancho Santa Fe area, which includes the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant as well as Fairbanks Ranch, Del Mar country Club, Cielo the Bridges and other communities, is considered to be the most exclusive.

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.
Lorna...I hope the lenders I posted have helped you...that's a great place to start.
I specialize in 92103 and surrounding areas..please give me a call..or email me for further information.
Why are you focusing on short sales and foreclosures? In many, many cases they are not the best deals on the market. Consider the fact that you have to wait for the bank to respond to your offer, which could be 4 or 4 months and then they tell you what they will or will not pay. On a foreclosure many banks will not pay for termite, pay for a home warranty and the do not pay for repairs, so a physical inspection is for your information only.
Although some Realtors who have REO accounts know that a property will become available they don't accept the first offer - in fact they usually take offers for a 5 days before they select. There are other ways to win the deal and you need to know how to write a clean offer and what the bank is looking for - this will benefit you more.... more
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
Most loans today are not formally assumable. Those that are require the same qualification process as a new loan. Rates are better now than they have been for most of our lifetimes. If you can't qualify, you can agree with the seller to make the payments and create an AITD or wrap around mortgage or buy the home on a contract for deed. There are some potential risks and limited sellers who would be open to this. Give me a call and I will be happy to discuss in more detail creative finance options and what the risks are.

It's a great area - any place in PQ is great. The entire area is families and tots and babies are very welcome. PQ is part of the Poway Unified School District and you want to be in the best school district. I would suggest that you dirve by the neighborhood on different days of the week and at different times of the day. You'll get a good idea of what the neighborhood is really like. You might want to pay attention to the traffic and noise too.
I head the Neighborhood Watch program and I am also connected to the captain in Park Village so I can say that I have a good idea about what is happening in my neighborhood.... more
I've lived here since 2005 and I feel like its safe and friendly. To take a look at the crime use the link that jerry heard posted below and compare it to other areas in San Diego you were looking at such as up north.
As for shopping my wife can tell you that its very convenient. Walmart, Home Depot and vons are very close. San Ysidro outlets are so close that in order to avoid parking and traffic you can drop off your wife and pick them up in a few hours. Bonita, Otay Ranch and Chula Vista malls are close as well. Distance and time were right in the middle between the Costco on Broadway and the one on H street in Rancho Del Ray.... more
