I rarely complain (in public) about other agents, but I recently witnessed something so incredibly frustrating, that I have to share it. I’m so tired of the lack of knowledge, professionalism and morals in real estate and it kills me to see agents “represent” their clients so poorly. I don’t claim to be the best agent, but I do know what I’m good at and I won’t represent a client if I think I won’t be able to properly assist them.

Have you ever wondered what those tall black and brown towers were over by the Convention Center? Well, they are the Harbor Club towers and they are some of San Diego’s most expensive, most desirable condos downtown, with arguably some of the best views. I recently listed Harbor Club condo #1403 for rent. This 1br/1ba condo is 1,036 sqft and is on the 14th floor of the east tower (100 Harbor Drive).
Without any exaggeration, the views from everywhere in this condo are incredible. You can see the bay, Coronado, the Coronado Islands, the
I just reduced the price on my 2br/2.5ba condo at The Lodge in Banker’s Hill to $499K, which is only $434/sqft. The last three two bedroom sales at The Lodge were considerably higher, at $472, $508 and $541/sqft. Here are a few reasons why I like this property:
Aside from that, the condo is in great shape and is just a good property in general. If you haven’t noticed, San Diego is still growing (especially downtown) and as prices keep rising there, people will look to the more affordable areas like The Lodge. I think this is a great investment and should do well in the future. Having a dual master townhome with 2.5 bathrooms is a huge plus as well. And yes, there are two gated parking spaces with this unit (and a gym).

Currently, there are 257 active listings in downtown San Diego. This is up quite a bit from the beginning of 2013, when we had about 140 active listings…about an 84% increase. So is it a good time to buy now, or are prices going to drop? In the last month or two, the market has cooled off, but the ”good” properties are selling pretty quickly. I haven’t noticed a drop in prices, but we’re definitely not seeing prices rise right now. Listings are sitting longer and buyers are more critical of how much they want to spend – probably a result of the government shutdown, the volatility in the stock market and simply because we’re heading into the holiday season.
If you’re looking for a great deal, I have just the place. The Mark #3102 is a large, 1,878 sqft penthouse with plenty of room for entertaining. It’s one floor below the top floor (which no one currently lives in) and only has two neighbors on the floor. The condo has 2 bedrooms, an optional den (no walls are built out) and 2.5 bathrooms. Additionally, there are three parking spaces (none are tandem!), three balconies (including one off the master bedroom) and a private storage room (right next to one of the parking spaces).

Banker’s Hill is a great location for people who want to be near downtown/Hillcrest/Mission Hills, but not be right in the middle of things. The Lodge at 2330 First Ave is located on the border of downtown and Banker’s Hill. It’s just a few minutes away from Little Italy and has great freeway access.

I just listed a 1br/1ba condo high up on the 24th floor at The Mark. This 905 sqft condo is on the north east corner and has city and mountain views (you can also see the bay/Coronado bridge from the balcony). Unlike most of the other 1 bedroom floor plans at The Mark, this unit has multiple exposures and doesn’t feel cramped. The high ceilings, large windows and open floor plan make it feel open and bright.
I just listed an amazing condo at Bayside. It was the most popular floor plan when Bosa originally sold the building and still seems to be the most desired layout. Bayside condo #2307 is a 2br/2ba+den, on the north west corner of the building. It has city, bay and airport views and most, if not all, the views are protected.

Real estate prices nationwide have risen drastically in 2013. For the most part, there’s no reason why. Nothing changed…interest rates didn’t drop, there wasn’t a significant change in inventory and the economy didn’t take off. The only difference was that people decided to start buying real estate.
