Welcome back to San Diego.
As a relocation Realtor, anything west of the 5, close to the beach is going to be on the high side, unless you are okay with a 2 bed condo or townhouse. However, even that is a like finding a "needle in the haystack". Our market is strong and anything under the $600K price point goes quite fast.
I can help you find something if you are looking for that perfect San Diego property. Being from NorCal myself, I know what its like relocating.
Please keep me in mind...
