Tammy: I answered this question over a year ago, and since that time prices have further plummeted in San Diego County. With thorough searching and lightning-fast offers, you might be able to find a home for less than $150,000 in Oceanside, Escondido, Vista and numerous communities in South County. We just put a 2-bedroom, 1-bath home in a nice area of Oceanside into escrow at $130,000. and one of our associates has sold several condos under $100,000 this year.
Homes at these prices are not languishing on the market, though. It is a congested segment of the market that is crowded with investors and first-time homebuyers.
