SAN CLEMENTE, CA - "The Sam Smith Team is proud to announce the launch of their new La Jolla website which has a focus on all things real estate related in La Jolla, California. The La Jolla Real Estate market has over 50 established neighborhoods that offer a combination of oceanfront, ocean and mountain views. La Jolla is ideally located in South San Diego county and just 15 minutes to the downtown San Diego area. The beach town offers beautiful vintage homes as well as many upscale neighborhoods.
Some of the most popular neighborhoods consist of Bird Rock, La Jolla Shores, County Club, Hermosa, Wind and Sea and the Village area. The Bird Rock is located at the southwest tip of La Jolla and offers a combination of residential housing combined with local restaurants and retails stores. Living in Bird Rock is truly a lifestyle with beautiful beaches and upscale beachfront residences and beach houses. La Jolla Shores is by far the most sought after area as it shares a large ocean front area near the center of town. There are miles of beaches in this area and is a very popular place for those looking to vacation in La Jolla. The Village area is another popular area due to homes located in the heart of the city. Many of the homes are within walking distance to the shopping and restaurants found in the Village area.
Real Estate in La Jolla is not for those looking for affordable housings as listing prices are significantly higher than surrounding cities. Condos currently start at $300,000 and residential single family homes over $700,000. One of the reasons this is true is the high demand for those who want to live her compared with the limited amount of housing located here. Much of the city has already been developed with little new construction neighborhoods being built. Much of the properties on the market are re-sale homes that come on the market only when a seller needs to sell. Other reasons include top rated schools, large shopping centers, beautiful beaches and easy freeway access as why living in La Jolla is so much sought after.
For the most part many of the upscale homes in La Jolla are not located in gated communities. There are some very nice gated neighborhoods like Crystal Bay and Emerald Cove that provide a secure 24 hour guard gated entrance but the most expensive homes tend to be located in non-gate areas. Communities like La Jolla Farms, Muirlands, Bird Rock, and La Jolla Shores will have some of the most expensive homes for sale and not located in a gated community. There is also a high percentage of single family homes compared to the number of townhouses and condos here. The highest concentration of residential condos can be found in the Village area that also serve as a great place to find vacation rentals.
