Hi April,
I live right by USD in the community of Clairemont. Some of the communities very close to USD are; Linda Vista, Clairemont, Bay Ho, Bay Park, Old Town, Mission Valley, Mission Hills, Pacific Beach, Point Loma and quite a few others. You can start your search on out San Diego Real Estate Website "Top Ranked" to search all homes by map so you can see exactly where the homes are in the criteria and price range you're looking for.
Please call me if I can help in any way.

Lina, Home Owner in San Diego, CA

Lina answered:
Hi there,

I'm a homeowner in this neighborhood and we've been raising our children here for over 15 years.
My kids were 1, 3, 5 years old when we moved here and it's been a wonderful family neighborhood with
great local schools including the Albert Einstein Academy in South Park (K-5.) There's a local park, Golden Hill Park, a wonderful Recreation center close by and of course 1 mile to Balboa Park where we had the
annual membership with most museums free for kids! Freeways are close by for an easy commute but you really don't hear that much noise. My kids are now 14, 16 and 18 yrs and we're still in Golden Hill and we still love it! Best wishes to you and your family!

I'm trying to determine how restrictive the Association is, and whether they allow things like back yard chickens, etc. How intrusive are they regarding what you do on your own property?

Best way I can answer is this:

Hey, let's go browse around the neighborhood and have some dinner. Want to go to Mission Valley? NO! Way to much traffic and corporations. Let's go up to North Park or Hillcrest. The restaurants are awesome, great music too. And, the Hillcrest Farmers market is the BEST!

Welcome to America's Finest City (soon). Seriously, North Park and Hillcrest are among my favorite areas of San Diego.

All my best,

I looked all over -- literally everywhere -- LCG is the best place by far (In my view). My mom has lived there now for nearly 2 years (after living in Minnesota for over 50 years). Yes, the transition was difficult -- she no longer drives. BUT, now she loves it. And, we love it too. We live nearby and, so long as you can afford it, go for it! ... more

Not exactly sure what you mean, but PUD is common interest as condos so the HOA insurance would insure the land/structures of the units. Home owner insures the internal belongings, appliances, anything within the basic structure. ... more
