    Default San Diego real estate

    Thinking about buying a house for my daughter in San Diego in the Kensington area. Just curious how prices are now and is this a decent area.

    If she's cute you can rent her a room from me in Carlsbad! Be much cheaper for you.

    Since it is for your daughter, I would suggest that you spend the weekend down here and get a look for yourself's. Some areas are very nice and others not so nice. Talk to people and business's around the area. You might or might not like the area and others well you know. As far as prices, there are a few realtors on here that might be able to help you. Remember, it's your daughter, I'm sure you would only want the best for her. Good luck.

    I have not been in Kensington in years, but from what I recall, it is an older, quaint neighborhood. My concern would be the surrounding neighborhoods in the area. Not so nice....

    Nice town, but it is surrounded by the worst neighborhoods in San Diego. I sold a house down there in 2006, it was expensive and very old, and a fixer upper. As far as San Diego goes North County is hard to beat unless you have to commute south. That is just my 2 cents!!

    Thumbs up

    Kensington is an excellent area. Very charming area with a great little village and excellent restaurants. Homes are on the more expensive side, but the area is worth it and holds its value well.

    Edit: you are bordered by a freeway to the west and north. You will have to travel a little ways to get to the lousy areas in question.
    San Diego!

    Great area. Houses built at the turn of the century - think old Beverly Hills-ish. Entry price would be mid/upper 500's - more like 700's. North of Adams is the best areas, stay further from El Cajon. If you want more info PM me - I live in the area.

    Not too familiar with the SD area, but my sister is about 3 miles north on the 15 and Aero, and its not a bad area there. I know once you start going east on the 8 it gets a little sketchy.

    The only part of Kensington I am familiar with is on El Cajon Blvd, it's not the best area. Go a couple miles east on El Cajon Blvd and it gets pretty bad.

    My brother in law flies for SDPD, and he spends most of his time over El Cajon Blvd east of Kensington.

    Stay North by Adams, looks a lot nicer.
