It is called Oceanside for a reason.
Oceanside is completely rebuilt as of July 2013 and values are back at pre-sandy values. There were some very good values to be had from Jan 2013 till like May 2013. I hoped you nabbed a bargain.
Most owners did extras while they had walls down and homes look better.
For instance I gutter my lower level and while I was at it moved walls and added upgrades I never would have done. Oceanside is not like Long Beach very few rental homes and vacation homes mainly primary residences. Folks either had flood insurance or got 31,900 payout from FEMA, it is zone AE so no homes had to be raised.
Oceanside is a HUGE value, great schools and great commute and low taxes and NEW inexpensive homes. My home is much better than pre-sandy. BUY BUY BUY
