Downtown San Diego Real Estate News

The following section of the website is devoted to news articles that have information or an impact on the Downtown San Diego Real Estate Market. I always tell clients to not “take my word for it”. I encourage clients to do their own research and form their own opinions. These are the same resources that I refer to, in order to collect my opinions and facts on the state of the Downtown Market and lifestyle. In this section, it is our opinion that the articles we include do not only present one side of the story. We include EVERY interesting article that we find not only the ones that shed a positive outlook on the state of the Downtown Market. For your organizational convenience, we have separated the articles into three sections: Downtown, San Diego County, and National Real Estate/Urban Living General. Many of these articles are used in our blogs and monthly newsletters to stimulate thought and debate.

Please feel free contacting us should you have any questions, comments, or opinions on any of the follow articles. We have done everything possible to make this an interactive site for Buyers and Sellers of Downtown Real Estate. To that commitment, please let me know if you have come across an article (published or personal) that you feel needs to be included on the website. If Downtown is, or is going to be your home, then let us share your information with the Downtown San Diego Urban Community!
