You had previously asked a question about getting properties in the Poway Unified School District. I had informed you that your needs would best be served by a knowledgeable, professional agent. That same person would be able to provide you a list of all the open houses in the areas that appeal to you. Some things in life are best done on your own some would be so much easier with the assistance of others. In your particular case, engage a professional and make this process as stress free as possible.
Best of luck!

Please feel free to contact us anytime at 760 815-6977 or email me at email@example.com. Or you can log onto any of our user friendly websites:
Most agents who want activity on their open houses advertise on the web. So you would search "open houses in poway" , etc. Also, you want to engage with an agent once you have selected an area(s) where you want to live.
With the internet tools available, you can locate homes. What an agent can do is give you expert opinions on fair market value, property condition, any quirks of the area and help you negotiate the best deal possible. Other advantages of a good agent can be referrals to lenders that produce results, a good property inspector, referrals for contractors and the like.
Do not hesitate to do your own research, use a good agent to further develop the information.
Best of luck,

I think the best way is to get a private home tour from a Realtor. You can go yourself and check out what is out there to get a feeling... but why not work with someone that can put together a list of homes that have all your "wants" on it. I would be happy to take you on a tour to check out homes that you would like.... and you can do it on your own schedule and include the properties that YOU want! Contact me directly and we can go see homes next weekend :)

1) The San Diego Tribune typically publishes open houses in their Saturday edition. It won't be comprehensive but you will find open houses that way.
2) Second, the San Diego Association of Realtors has a weekly list of open houses -
Of course working with a Realtor is important - but I do think there's value in exploring your neighborhoods by visiting open houses. This can help provide you with a sense of what you are and are not looking for and which areas you like.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Craig's list is a good place to start looking for open houses. Also you can just drive around the area that you like and look for the signs. There are not many open houses this time of year.
You can use my website to find homes that are actively on the market.
The best way to find a home is to work with a Realtor. They can help find you the home that is right for you and save you a lot of time and gas driving around on your own. As a buyer, there is no charge for the services that I provide you.
If you would like to discuss your wants and needs please contact me and we can find you the right home.
I am never too busy for your referrals

Be sure to do your searches on http://www.SurfingSanDiegoHomes.com where you can do a search for all three areas by map at the same time!
The best way to look for a home, is to work with a REALTOR. Then you don't have to wait for the open houses, and you get to see houses that meet your criteria instead of just the ones that are being held open the week-end you want to go look. This time of the year, there are not a lot of open houses...at least fewer than normal.
If you would like to start looking for a home in Poway, Encinitas, Carlsbad, or other areas of San Diego, feel free to call or text me at 760-757-3468. I work with a team, that will be happy to help.
