A couple of you asked for more info on the Neighborhood Market series after I solicited your help with my El Cajon story the other day — stay tuned for that story this evening.

Here’s why we do this series:

When examined on a county level, a housing market is nearly impossible to diagnose with much precision. Schools, noise and even what type of tree is planted in the median of a thoroughfare can attract or repel buyers, many of whom care only about the price performance of one house: the one they’re buying.

We don’t have a comprehensive index page for our neighborhood market series since they’re meant to be a snapshot in time for a particular neighborhood.

With that caveat in mind, here are some links to the last few stories in the series:

  • In Oceanside, Stalled Coastal Projects, Frenzy Inland
  • In Julian, Removed from the City, But Not From Its Housing Slump
  • In City Heights, a Housing Market of Juxtapositions

A couple of random notes:

If you happen to be watching TV around 4:30 p.m., tune in to our media partners on NBC 7/39 to catch me on the weekly Survival feature.

And I’m headed out of town for a little vacation for the rest of the week, so the blog will be quiet until Monday. As always, I’d love to know what you’re thinking about in this economy and housing market. Leave a comment below or drop me a line at kelly.bennett@voiceofsandiego.org.
