A new client had asked me awhile back about why it would be better to purchase a starter home now instead of continuing to rent in the San Diego market. Although there are a lot of factors that can play into making this decision, this article from the Union Tribune provides a great overview.



Ultimately, purchasing a home in the San Diego market in more established neighborhoods or more trendy neighborhoods can be difficult due to market availability and higher costs. However, if you are ok living just outside those areas or are flexible to live within a few driving minutes of those areas, the stability and return on investment cannot be overstated for what purchasing a home in San Diego can provide.

If you’re looking to buy or sell in the future or even if your just curious, feel free to reach out. My dad always said there’s no such thing as a bad question.
