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

A large majority of homes in the Oceanside area are built on smaller size lots and often times don't have the room for a swimming pool.  Lot sizes are typically very small in Oceanside where many of the original homes were built here are located close to each other.  Often times the larger homes found in the Oceanside area are the newer construction homes built further away from the beach where there is more land to work with.  There are several neighborhoods where you fill find homes with their own private swimming pools and here is your guide on where to look.

One of the great things about living in Oceanside is the wide diversity of homes that can be found throughout this beach town.  From residential condos that overlook to the Pier to detached single family homes located on the east side of the freeway there tends to be something for everyone.  We have some clients that have very specific needs which sometimes includes finding a home that also comes with RV parking.  Oceanside has a lot of older neighborhoods with larger lot sizes that are ideal for exactly this.  Many of the newer homes are built very close together and typically would not accommodate those who are looking for additional parking spaces like an RV.  We always recommend looking in some of the more established neighborhoods which Oceanside

Whelan Ranch is one of the best kept secret neighborhoods when looking for a home in the Long Beach area.  The area is predominately filled with residential single family homes but also offers residential condos as well.  What I love about this community is that it's well established and has many homes that have a lot of character and charm to them.  The location is one of the biggest selling points and is located just north of the Oceanside historic Mission and west of the 76 freeway.  Because of this location it's very popular with those in the Military who work at the nearby Camp Pendleton since it's just a short distance to the entrance gate.

One of the latest trends for real estate buyers is buying a home that has been completely remolded.  We started noticing this many years ago as buyers were no longer interested in taking on a project of a home that needed some work.  Savvy buyers are looking for homes that have a lot of upgrades and that are competitively priced as well.   COVID19 has really changed a lot about the real estate market in the last several months.  There are a lot of buyers out looking for homes since interest mortgage rates are some of the lowest that they have ever been.  The biggest problem right now is finding a suitable home.  Because of COVID19 the inventory of Oceanside homes has gone down which causes more buyers to be interested in any new properties that come on
