We get a lot of calls from manufactured home buyers that are attracted to the low real estate price points especially those that can be purchased for around $200,000.  Most of the times there is a catch and many of these homes are located on leased land where you don't own the land where the home is located on.  Under this scenario you pay a monthly space rent fee to the owner of the land which in recent years has become very expensive.  Often times these space rents can be around $2,000 a month which is on top of any mortgage costs that you may have on the home.  The Lakeshore Gardens community in Carlsbad is a perfect example of this where you can find homes for under $300,000 but many of the space rent fees can be $2,000 or more.  The buyers are always

One of the most popular place to find furnished rentals is located near the Oceanside Pier area in a place called "San Miguel."  There are actually several buildings and locations that make up the San Miguel complex which all offer an unbelievable location that is a very easy walk to the beach.  Due to it's prime location that large majority of rental properties located here are furnished rentals which means they can be rented for a short period of time.  For the most part, these must be rented for a minimum of 30 days and often rented by the month.  The best time to book these rentals is during the off season which is currently the fall and winter months.  

I truly believe the month of February is a great time to book as the rental rates are lower

We recently received a call from a client who was excited to see a new condo listing come on the market in the North Coast Village complex listed at $263,000.  One thing the client didn't understand was that this condo was not selling for this price for full ownership, rather it was for 1/8 ownership of the condo.  Fractional ownership is something we have seen in the past but It really never seemed to gained popularity until recently.  It basically works around the concept of 8 different buyers who buy a share in any particular property.  All 8 owners own a 1/8 percentage of the property and work together on when they will occupy the property.  Any 8 owners may sell their percentage in the property at any given time and the cost of managing the home or

Oceanside is a great place to find beach cottage style homes in Oceanside, California.  Back in the early 1920's is when we saw some of the first beach cottages being built here.  In essence, a beach cottage is typically a smaller detached single family home that features under 1,500 square feet and was often built as a secondary beach home.  It was until the 1950's when we started to see a large number of these types of homes being constructed which many of them still exist.  They are ideal for those looking for a vacation or rental income property as well as those with a smaller household size.  Oceanside is widely known as being one of the most affordable beach towns in San Diego County and many of these beach homes still have attractive price points.

One of the things about a hot real estate market is that some of the best properties come on the market since owners realize they can get top dollar for their homes.  We saw many examples of this throughout the Oceanside area and especially for ocean front properties which made up many of the most expensive homes sold in 2021.   Up to this date the most expensive home sold was located at 1819 S Pacific Street which closed escrow for $6,590,000.  The home had a lot to offer which was built brand new in 2020 and featured a total of five bedrooms with an approximate 3,862 square feet of living space with an attached two car garage according to our multiple listing service.  It was originally listed at $7,800,000 and sold after being on the market for 52

Oceanside has always been known for having some of the most attractive price points for homes located near the beach in San Diego county.  Lot sizes in many neighborhoods can be very generous size with lots over 10,000 square feet.  For Southern California this is considered a large lot as land is very valuable and expensive, especially near the beach.  There are certain neighborhoods that we recommend to our clients who are looking for homes with a little bit of land attached to them.  Different neighborhoods will have different price points depending on the location and condition of the home.  One of the places near the beach is the Loma Alta neighborhoods that has many homes that were built in the 1960's and 70's.  These are typically one story ranch

For years real estate agents use to deal privately with other real estate agents and clients about any upcoming listings that they might have.  In order to circumvent this from happening the board of realtors have introduced a new status to all listings.  Now clients will be able to see what kind of listings will be coming up for sale or for lease before it hits the market.  This is perfect timing as we have seen record low inventory in Oceanside with a higher demand for housing than what is currently available.  So how exactly does this work?

First, the listing is posted on our multiple listing service that is available for the public to view no matter the current condition of the home.  Often times a real estate agent will take a listing but there
