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

There is a nice community in the Oceanside area where you can find homes built around 1990 and located next to a nice park area.  The community is commonly known as Marlado Highlands and we are excited to see a new listing coming on the market soon in this neighborhood.  On average, we only see several homes come on the market each year which has typically been priced in the high $600,000 to $700,000 range for a three to five bedroom detached single family home.  We think these real estate prices are really great when you compare them with neighboring homes in the beach community of Carlsbad, Solana Beach and Encinitas where prices are much higher.  They are often one story homes which seems to be what many buyers are looking for in today's real estate

One of the more popular areas to find rental homes in the Oceanside area is in the planned community  of Rancho Del Oro.  I really like this area since it has so many different neighborhoods to choose from each with it's own unique personality and floor plans to choose from.  For the most part, rentals in this area included homeowners association dues which means you have access to all of the community amenities while the landlord pays for those dues.  Renters typically are responsible for paying all utilities which is pretty standard when renting a home in the Oceanside area.

There are currently two rental homes on the market in Rancho Del Oro.  One is a four bedroom, three and a half bath home with approximately 2,059 square feet and listed at $3,500
