Almost every home buyer relocating to San Diego asks at one time or another: “What is the best public school district in San Diego.” Of course, not everyone cares, buy everyone should. Buying a house in a good school district is a great strategy for making a safe a real estate investment. Even if you don’t have children of school age, when you go to sell a home the market of prospective buyers is much larger in good school districts. It is a simple axiom that higher demand supports higher real estate prices.
In San Diego, the San Dieguito Union High School District has earned a reputation for solid performance. Torrey Pines High School in Carmel Valley is one of the top performers in all of California. It is a big school, with more than 2,500 students who come from Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Solana Beach, and Rancho Santa Fe. All of these are affluent neighborhoods with parents who take pride in supporting their children and their local schools. And, as expected, house prices in these neighborhoods are also well above average.
There are some relatively affordable options for homes in Carmel Valley. Here’s an example: The Pines in Carmel Valley is a lovely neighborhood built in the mid-to-late 1980’s. This three-bedroom twin home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, including a full bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The orientation of the house creates privacy and an open feel, with outside living space, gardens, and patios on two sides. Priced at $615,000, this is a wonderful entry-level option for anyone looking to buy a house in Carmel Valley, in the heart of the top school district in San Diego.
