The Encinitas real estate market offers many opportunities to shop, from single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums, and waterfront homes with breathtakingly beautiful views.

Average home prices in the neighborhood typically range from $350,000 to $2.5 million.

Encinitas can be divided into Old Encinitas, New Encinitas, Olivenhain, Leucadia, and Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Homebuyers consider Olivenhain for the extra space, privacy, and a semi-rural feel, as well as several private equestrian-related facilities for horseback riding enthusiasts.

Those interested in living near the water should begin their real estate search somewhere around Old Encinitas, Leucadia, or Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Although the housing styles in these neighborhoods vary a bit, finding the perfect beachside or Encinitas oceanfront home should rarely be a problem for buyers willing to pay the inevitable waterfront premium.
