La Jolla. For Real Estate buyers the words may conjure up images of beautiful ocean views, beachside fun in the sun, and of course the seals. Ah, the La Jolla seals. The words may also conjure up images of higher than normal home prices, exorbitant lifestyles and out of reach expectations. Well, we’re here to help you navigate not just the beauty La Jolla has to offer, but the myths that can scare off the not so “filthy rich” buyers.


First you must imagine seven miles of hilly resort community. Then you must imagine that you, yes you, can be a part of it. Yes, there is an abundance of luxury living, but you’ll also find Multi Family Homes and even Foreclosures. See, when the Spanish named this gorgeous San Diego neighborhood “The Jewel” (yes, that’s what La Jolla means in Spanish) they knew exactly what they were doing. La Jolla isn’t just a jewel to be enjoyed by the wealthy, it’s a paradise for us all. For instance, foreclosures start at $499,000 and up and include everything from beachside views of the white water waves to cozy condos in the heart of what’s happening.

Of course that surprising affordability is not all that La Jolla has to offer. There’s other things to consider as well when purchasing a home in this sunny beachfront community. For instance, if you like to golf you might want to be in proximity to Torrey Pines Golf Course. Torrey Pines is the home of the annual Farmer’s Insurance Open and in 2008 it hosted the US Open. And if your interests are more in line with the finer things in life then you may want to live near The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. There you’ll find over 3500 examples of art from the post 1950’s era.


La Jolla holds the certain kind of Southern California magic that can make anyone feel like a dyed in the wool, surf at dawn, laid back beach bum. And there’s nothing wrong with that. All a buyer has to decide is if they’re ready to take the plunge. So, is La Jolla the perfect “jewel” in your Real Estate cap? Something tells us that the lustrous beauty of this California gem would look good in anyone’s collection.
