EXPLORE SAN DIEGO
The San Diego communities are as beautiful and diverse as the people who live in them. There are San Diego neighborhoods for every taste and preference, and that’s what makes San Diego real estate so special. Explore each of our San Diego communities, by geographical area by following the links below.
The Central Coastal San Diego neighborhoods North and Northeast of downtown were the original San Diego suburbs. Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and La Jolla are waterfront and beachfront communities that are unlike any others in the world, each with their own unique flavors. The Village of La Jolla is loaded with upscale shopping and dining, known worldwide as a luxury home neighborhood. Pt. Loma is a hilly peninsula, with views of the harbor, sailing, and yacht club on the south side and views of the North County beachfront from the North side. Ocean Beach is a Bohemian’s dream, with a laid-back almost hippie environment that has happily endured for decades. Pacific Beach is an exceptionally diverse beach neighborhood, with quiet neighborhoods along Mission Beach to the South and North Pacific Beach on the border of La Jolla. The action-packed entertainment areas of Pacific Beach are along Garnet Avenue in the center. But not everyone can afford to live in near the beach. On the West side of I-5, but still considered Coastal, the homes are more affordable. Bay Park overlooks Mission Bay and many houses in the neighborhood enjoy views of the Seaworld fireworks. Mission Hills shares zip code 92103 with Hillcrest, which has a much more urban vibe.
The North County Coastal San Diego communities enjoy some of the most pristine beaches in Southern California. North County also has the highest-performing school districts in the area. Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Solana Beach, and Rancho Santa Fe homes all feed into the top-rated Torrey Pines High School. House prices tend to be higher in the North County coastal neighborhoods, with schools and cleanliness of the environment playing big roles in supporting property values. Each of these communities offers something special for residents and visitors alike, including shopping, dining, beaches, and entertainment.
The North County Inland San Diego neighborhoods are also highly desirable for the beautiful mountain vistas, secure suburban atmospheres, and great schools. The Poway Unified School district, which serves Poway, Rancho Bernardo, and Rancho Penasquitos, is a close rival of the San Dieguito Union School District which serves North County Coastal. But home prices in these San Diego communities are lower than their coastal cousins, and quite reasonable by San Diego real estate standards. The weather in these inland communities is slightly warmer than along the coast, more arid, but still ideal my any standards.
The Central-Inland San Diego communities have some of the more affordable homes in the County, while still providing convenient commutes to downtown and the beaches. Along the Interstate-8 corridor, there are diverse residential options. Along the I-8 corridor, there are loads of condominiums and townhomes in Mission Valley that are within reach of most buyers. Explore the hillside houses with views in Del Cerro and the quiet residential neighborhood of San Carlos on the North side of I-8. State University, the relaxed old-west feel of La Mesa, and luxury home living around the golf courses at Steele Canyon in Rancho San Diego. The neighborhoods in El Cajon offer low to moderately priced San Diego homes.
In South Bay San Diego you’ll find that South Bay homes are much less expensive than homes in Central and North County San Diego. The neighborhoods such as Eastlake and Otay Ranch in Chula Vista are good choices for newer homes at lower prices. Earlier South Bay neighborhoods include Lemon Grove and Spring Valley. National City and Paradise Hills are less expensive still. On the other hand, Coronado, which is also technically part of South San Diego, is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in San Diego County.
