I’m gearing up this week for a second installment in our new series, The Neighborhood Market. Here’s a recap of our reasoning for the series:
We know it’s tricky to tell the story of the housing market on a county level. We know the data often appears vague when it includes stats from Chula Vista and Carmel Valley and Oceanside and Descanso. And so, like in the Carmel Valley story and in some of the work I’ve done about downtown San Diego, we’re hoping to stop in on some markets, hear from the real estate pros and home buyers and sellers on the streets there, and through it all assemble a mosaic of the San Diego housing scene.
The first story appeared a couple of weeks ago, with Carmel Valley as its focus.
This week, I’m taking a look at housing in Pacific and Mission beaches. And I’d love to hear from you if you’re a buyer or an owner or a seller or a landlord or anyone else with a perspective on housing in those coastal communities in the city of San Diego. Here are a couple of thoughts and questions my research has led me to so far:
- What impact did the flare-up of mini-dorm activity in PB, or the beach booze ban, have on real estate?
- To what extent are investors (some from Canada, I’ve heard, and beyond) propping up values and sales rates in PB or Mission?
Please, send me your thoughts or notes on other tidbits I should be looking for by clicking my name below.
