There are currently 19 homes available that fit your criteria. The amount of time it takes to find a home that suits you is kind of up to you. It would be possible to see all 19 of the homes currently on the market in a couple of days, then a few days or a week to go the the application process and negotiate a lease. I suggest you start viewing homes and putting in offers 60 days before you want to move.

I'll put a link to the list of homes currently available in the web reference below.

Hi Al, Jackie and I live and specialize in La Jolla. We have several listings on the market now including 526 Westbourne for $999,000-$1,050,000. January-May was very robust and we saw increases in pricing up to 15% over 2012, however, June and July were slow across the board. August has picked up as kids get settled in school and families return from vacations. I would anticipate slow but steady growth averaging 3%-5% annually depending on what interest rates do. ... more

You got your answer below from a Realtor no need to repeat. But why are you not working with a local experienced Realtor. As a buyer you should not do this on your own. Commit and be loyal to one
Realtor who in return will be loyal to you and work in your very BEST interest, and you will then have
one source to provide you with all your answers to all your questions and concerns and the buyers
agent's services are free to you the buyer, as they are usually paid by the Seller's side out of the proceeds at the closing...

All that is required by you, is to be loyal to one Realtor, your personal Buyers Agent.
If you need a recommendation let us know.

I would love to hear back from you.
Most Sincerely yours,

My daughter will be playing for the Tritons Water Polo team beginning this year! I own Top Coast Properties in La Jolla Shores, and I would definitely consider a 5 year window a good opportunity for a purchase provided your son has roommates and you can collect this rent. Zip Codes 92037 and 92122 should both be considered.

You may even decide at the end of the 5 years that this is an investment worth holding on to, renting it out even after your son finishes his program. I am going to consider this option for my daughter after her freshman year (I want her to have the dorm experience for a year first). Congratulations to you and your son and welcome to gorgeous La Jolla!

As someone who has purchased, developed, and managed vacation rentals for nearly 10 years, I do have some experience with these types of properties.

The easy answer, and also the most honest, is "it depends."

Investing in the right vacation rental is probably the epitome of location, location, location. A home right next door to a an existing vacation rental may do better or worse on the market simply due to amenities or lot and home orientation.

It takes an some experience to locate the right property, but when you do, they can be great for cash flow.

Regarding location...I've had better ROI in Mission Beach for vacation rentals over any other location, but that doesn't mean that is a hard and fast rule.

Give me a call if you would like to discuss any of this further, or take a walk around some of the short term rental properties I like or have been involved with.
