Why Rancho Bernardo Condos Make Great Cash Flow Investments

I have been a huge fan of Rancho Bernardo condos.  Simply put, I don’t know of another location in San Diego County where you get as high quality a tenant to occupy as low priced a property as you do in RB. 

Many are surprised to find out that there are multitudes of Rancho Bernardo condos available under two hundred thousand dollars.  There are not very many other communities of this caliber where you can find such low priced investment properties.  Rent in RB is also going to be higher than in most other San Diego locations that offer such low priced properties.  Plus, the tenants in RB tend to take better care of their properties than in some other low priced neighborhoods.

As an example, you may purchase a one bedroom Rancho Bernardo condo for $120,000 and rent it for $1,150 per month.  Great CAP rates like that are hard to come by anywhere, let alone in such a high quality neighborhood.

Inventory Down Across San Diego County

The biggest surprise for today’s home buyers is the shockingly limited amount of available inventory across the county.  This is something I have been sensing for months but it is now without any doubt a reality.  In fact, I dare say that San Diego is turning into a seller’s market.

Sound completely incongruent with news you hear on TV and in the papers?  Well just ask anybody that has looked for a home in the past few months and you will not believe what they tell you.  Truth is that even the national media is starting to come on.  The April 27, 2012 issue of the Wall Street Journal ran a story on its front page si-highlighting the fact that inventory is own and that bidding wars are back across the country.  This is especially prevalent on the coasts. 

Home buyers today will tell you of how they just can’t find a home they like and once they do spot one there are bound to be multiple offers within days.  Cash buyers...

Up Coming San Diego Neighborhoods

I spend a lot of time evaluating market trends in San Diego County and trying to figure out what the best place is for my client’s investment dollars.  The goal being to uncover North Park or South Park prior to the gentrification process that transformed those communities and added tremendous value to the local real estate.  Imagine buying downtown San Diego real estate prior to the year 2000 when there wasn’t much there.  Or how about purchasing property along the 56 corridor prior to the freeway’s construction?

It is my belief that those of you looking for the next big thing should turn to Normal Heights and Talmadge.  Everything tells me that gentrification is heading into those areas and in a big way.  Interesting to note that neither neighborhood is especially inexpensive now as it is, but I believe that there is still plenty of money to be made there as both are relatively unknown and are benefiting from very interesting fundamentals...
