San Diego Real Estate is broken down into 6 areas of the county. These areas are; North County Coastal San Diego Real Estate, North County Inland San Diego Real Estate, San Diego Coastal Real Estate, San Diego Central Real Estate, East County San Diego Real Estate and South Bay San Diego Real Estate. Within these areas of the county are the San Diego communities that make the different locations unique. Breaking the community down by these locations makes it easier to know where you want to purchase real estate, homes, condos, investments, land, multiunit, etc… Do you want to live by the coast? Do you want to live close to Downtown San Diego? Do you want to live in rural San Diego in the outlying country areas? 

San Diego is very diversified and has so many unique communities and neighborhoods that you need local Coronado San Diego Real Estate and Homesexperts like The Lewis Team to show you areas that you never even knew existed. There are older neighborhoods and newer neighborhoods with a diversification of home styles and sizes. Every community and neighborhood has its own personality and vibe. The shopping, dining, recreational areas, parks, public areas and so much more create the character that makes it unique. Let us show you.

You may want to consider buying a brand new home in San Diego or you may want to purchase in a master planned community built in the last 25 years. There are many new home master planned communities in North County San Diego and South Bay San Diego in particular. New home builders like; Pardee Homes, KB Home, McMillin, Shea Homes, Lennar, Ryland Homes, Brookfield, DR Horton, Pulte, K Hovnanian, CalAtlantic Homes and more are either building or have recently built many homes and condos in San Diego. Some of the main areas of new or newer constructions are; 4S-Ranch, Carmel Valley, Carlsbad in North County and Eastlake, Otay Ranch, Rolling Hills Ranch and San Miguel Ranch in East Chula Vista located in South Bay. We can give you our opinion and expertise on all of the newer communities. 

Knowing where value is in San Diego can help you see the best areas to get the most bang for your buck. Sometimes trying to buy real estate in a community that is ultra-desirable means that you will be paying a high price tag for it and there’s nothing wrong with that if you want that exact community. There are areas that may not have the ultra-desirability factor but are still desirable and that’s where you can find value, a good price for a good home in a good neighborhood. Close to the ultra-desirable area but without the big price tag. There is also value in San Diego short sales and San Diego foreclosures which we closely monitor for our clients.

Commuting time to work can be a big factor when buying a home. You wouldn’t want to buy a home in Chula Vista if you worked in Carlsbad, the drive time in traffic may drive you crazy. Traffic has increased in San Diego and some highways flow better than others. Once we know where you work then we can show you communities to buy a home in that are within a realistic commute time that is within your tolerance. 

Because San Diego is a Military Town with many Navy and Marine Corp Bases we are specialists in helping San Diego Military and their Families buy a home. Mike Lewis on The Lewis Team is a Marine Veteran that loves working with Active Military and Veterans alike. We have a “Get it done” attitude at The Lewis Team that we know you’ll like. We have many 5 Star Reviews from Military and Veterans that we take pride in. Depending on where you’re stationed if your Active Duty Navy or Active Duty Marine we can show you neighborhoods that are a close distance to the San Diego Military Bases you are stationed at. We have helped many VA Home Buyers in San Diego, we’d love to help you too. Semper Fidelis! 

You have to ask yourself, what is important to you when buying a home? From working with buyers for many years we’ve found that some of the most important criteria for buying a home are;

  • Location
  • Neighborhood
  • Schools
  • Size of Home
  • Right amount of Bedrooms and Bathrooms
  • Yard
  • Pool
  • Commute Time to Work
  • Views
  • HOA or no HOA
  • No Mello-Roos

Once you know what it is you want or at least basically what you want, we can start emailing you properties that fit your requirements. It’s not like searching on your own for a home on sites like Zillow and Trulia, which many of the homes may not even be for sale on these websites, or homes that are for sale may not even be on these websites, it’s an accurate, defined and filtered search only emailing you homes that fit what you want to buy. Once you preview these homes you can discuss them with your Lewis Team Agent and then go see the ones you like by meeting the agent at the properties and walking through them and actually seeing it in person and not online. Sometimes pictures don’t show the property as it really is and the only way to really see if the home is right for you is to go see it in person. 

Recently there have been a plethora of flipped properties in San Diego County. Many older communities in San Diego, homes built in the 50’s and 60’s are getting new life from the flippers, a makeover of sorts. Many of flipped homes “renovation real estate” are being remodeled very nicely and some are even complete head to toe remodels. Some real nice product if I do say so myself. These flipped homes in San Diego are a real boost to the communities they’re in. I see a lot of flipped homes in, Clairemont, La Mesa, Poway, older Chula Vista, Spring Valley, Escondido just to name a few. 

We can also recommend excellent lenders in San Diego that can assist with your home loan. We have an excellent relationship with lenders that can really get the job done and get you the right loan at the right interest rate. If you have a lender already then that’s great, if not we can help.

I’ve included some of The Lewis Team agent Reviews so that you can see that we take pride in what we do and will work hard for you to help you find that perfect San Diego Home or Condo.

Yelp Review 5 Star

San Diego Real Estate Yelp Review

The Lewis team was nothing short of phenomenal.  I worked mostly with Mike, as he was the agent who helped me purchase a home.  Mike is professional, personable, and incredibly knowledgeable of the San Diego area.  Not only was he prompt in accommodating my requests to see properties and provide comps, he was generous with his time as he dedicated the entirety of a day more than once to seeing properties.  On numerous occasions, he made a special trip out to my property to either check on appliances or be there to help me show the property to my prospective roommates (for when the property closed).

My property was particularly challenging in getting the financing squared away and Mike and his team did everything they could to provide me with the information I needed to make decisions.  In particular, Dawn was incredibly helpful in dealing with my mortgage broker, who was admittingly a serious challenge to work with.  She was able to work with him to solidify the details of my loan, push through the documents that were needed, and provide me with a clear explanation of what was happening throughout the process.  Her knowledge of the home financing side of the transaction was way above and beyond a typical real estate team.  It made a huge difference for my personal sanity in dealing with my mortgage broker.   

I would work with the Lewis team again in a heartbeat.  They come with my highest recommendation.  Thanks for everything - it was a real pleasure. 

Zillow Review 5 Star

Zillow Review for San Diego Real Estate Agents 

As a military family transferring in from another state across country, Dawn and Shylia were very conscientious about our situation and urgent time line.  They worked very diligently to find us exactly what we were looking for, and walked us thru all the details of the California Real Estate laws   and processes.  Dawn and Shylia were very professional, knowledgeable about the area and school districts, and very friendly.  Our family would highly recommend them with the utmost confidence to anyone lucky enough to obtain their services.
