Adam Mallory answered:

Rancho Bernardo ("RB" to those of us who live here) is a master planned community with many different subdivisions. Most of these subdivisions have their own CC&Rs. As such, you'd do well to focus on the specific areas of RB you are interested in, then review their CC&Rs for any specific issues you may be concerned about.

Please feel free to contact me directly for additional information.

Best should be based and defined by personal preferences, finances, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc.; therefore consider visiting areas/places of interest more than once, then determine the best place for you. For any safety concerns, it's always a good idea to contact the local authorities with questions; whenever possible also chat with neighbors/locals... ... more

I have provided a link below for crime statistics by neighborhood for San Diego. Or here is a link to statistics for San Diego county areas.

Be careful when renting as there are some real scams out there, particularly on Craigs List.

Speak to your agent about different crime statistics for that neighborhood. A buyer needs to satisfy themselves as to what they consider "safe". A good resource I use with my clients is

Don Reedy answered:

Well, I'm originally from Youngstown, and came to the San Diego area 35 years ago. I now live in Vista. So, I think I can give you a pretty good idea of what to expect, what you'll find, and how to go about getting what you want.

You CAN accomplish what you're looking for, at least as far as the cost of renting, but we need to do lots of chatting and brainstorming about almost everything else you're written about in your post.

I usually just answer questions here, but in your case I think I might really be able to help. Best way to contact me is by email at Write me off-line, and let's see if I can help you out.

All my best,
Don Reedy

Patti Phillips answered:
Jim- Was this a question? You seemed to have answered it perfectly! We could definately absorb the fire victims into inventory that is already on the market. Many, of course will want to rebuild where they lived originally.

In the fires 4 years ago, I saw many people buy a less expensive home to live in while they were rebuilding, then keep it as a rental investment once they moved into their new home. Of course, the market then was not what it is now. The home they bought for investment had gone up quite a bit in value in the time it took to rebuild their original homes.

It will be interesting to see what exactly happens with our inventory and the relocation of the fire victims.

Hi, I raised 5 children in Coronado. Located between San Diego Bay and the ocean. Pricey, but great schools and walking distance to the bay, schools and the ocean. Small town atmosphere with summer concerts, parades,bands and it is superb for biking and walking. Minutes from all the big city attractions of downtown via the Coronado Bay Bridge. There are many types and prices for homes but they are above $800,000, all the way to multi millions of $$. If you go to and look at the type of property you want...detached or attached, you can see the median and average list/sale prices for every zip code in the county. I have school information on my site Good Luck. ... more

San Diego beaches are open year round, which is one of the features that makes San Diego such a wonderful place to live. In fact, locals enjoy the beaches even more after the summer months have passed because they are not so crowded. ... more
