Like other local markets, the Oceanside real estate market has undergone many shifts in the last several years and continues to evolve, especially with the large number of distress sales. These data do not include any private sales nor manufactured or mobile housing; the numbers are derived from the MLS and are believed to be accurate but are not guaranteed.  Media reports speak in general terms, rather than local, so that information may not represent the reality of the local Oceanside real estate market.

Buyers interested in acquiring waterfront homes in Oceanside California, the most northerly San Diego Coastal community, have a number of options. What you buy, of course depends on budget, primarily, with a range of choices if you prefer a detached home or an oceanfront condominium. The Oceanside real estate market is the least expensive, on average, of the coastal communities, but despite that waterfront homes in Oceanside are still fairly pricey but less so than comparable waterfront homes in the other beach towns of Carlsbad, Encinitas, and Cardiff just to the south.  Waterfront home buyers can choose from both attached (condos) and a good number of detached waterfront homes, depending on price range and location along the Oceanside coastline, with homes along Pacific and The Strand...

Hello and Welcome to Oceanside Foreclosure properties. During the recent down turn Oceanside home prices have experienced declines due to the overwhelming number of foreclosures and the tightening of credit. The region also faces pressure due to the recent rises in unemployment. So the question to ask, Is there opportunity to buy in this market? We believe the answer is Yes, but only with the right approach. The potential silver lining and opportunity here is the following: According to Dataquick, in the month of May, 2009 there were 3,094 sales in San Diego county which represents a 8% increase in sales volume over May of 2008. The median home price for San Diego has actually increased by 15,000 over the last 3 months from a low of 280,000 to 295,000 in May. The median home prices in ...

"May 1st was the deadline for U.S. financial institutions and creditors to comply with the "Red Flag" regulations adopted by the Federal Trade Commission - an extension from the previously announced November 2008 deadline.  Every business that furnishes goods or services on a delayed-payment basis is required to develop and implement programs designed to detect, prevent and mitigate the effects of identity theft. Written by Charles H. Kennedy, Of Counsel, Morrison and Foerster LLP, this white paper clarifies requirements of the Red Flag regulations and offers guidance for how impacted businesses can prepare," says Iron Mountain.

I recently met a wonderful couple who have become clients of mine in the Short Sale process.Unlike so many others out there, they did not buy more house than they could afford, nor did the main bread winner lose his job. Their only down fall came from being in the US Military.The husband was going to retire from the military after more than 20 years, but because the job market in his field dried-up, he reenlisted.Having just recently returned from another tour in Iraq, they are being transfered to yet another location outside of the United States.Because they purchased their home after the 2007 cut off, they do not qualify for the military to purchase their home.This couple has tried everything for trying to sell it themselves to trying to lease out the property & of course the ever pop...

The Oceanside real estate market, like other North County San Diego communities, has undergone dramatic changes in the housing prices in the last several years. Oceanside remains the most affordable coastal community with a wide range of housing available to buyers. Oceanside buyers seeking condos with a budget of under $400,000 have a number of options, although not many west of the 5 freeway and even fewer west of the coast road/Route 101.  Those interested in recently built condos within sight of the downtown area may find Windward to their liking.  The condos at Windward were built beginning around 2005 and lie just on the east side of the 5 freeway. Some condos offer views to the west of Oceanside downtown and the ocean while units to the rear of the complex have views of a canyon ...
