TAKE A LOOK! Here are some examples of our recent listings. There are 50 photos, but these are just a small sampling. How about if we add your home photos to the next photo album?

How can we help you decide when to sell? Do you need to discuss how to get your home ready for sale? And where you will move to? WE can help you with all of it. I bet you didn’t know this, but we also pay to have a housekeeping company clean your home just before it hits the market.

We love listing San Diego homes for sale, getting top dollar for our sellers, and are ready to talk to you about YOUR home’s value, your timing and how we work. Let’s get started!

92111 is hotA local magazine recently ran a big annual article on the “hottest neighborhoods” in San Diego. We read it with interest, but the article didn’t explain how it is to live in those neighborhoods. And it really didn’t have a real estate point-of-view. To that, we are highlighting what we feel is THE hottest neighborhood in San Diego. Yes, this ZIP code was coincidentally in the article, but it was lumped with others. This ZIP code, 92111, singularly and by itself is the hottest neighborhood in San Diego, according to Blend Real Estate.

What to call this area though? Clairemont? Clairemont East? Maybe, but we think of it as more Kearny Mesa. The perimeters of this neighborhood are in this link.

The residential portion is everything south of Clairemont Mesa Boulevard and north of Mesa College Drive. Its western edge is Genesee Avenue, and it goes all the way east to the I-163.

It’s a mix of commercial & residential and the homes are really amazing. Smaller, typically. Always single story, always with a big garage. Sometimes a second story is found if the house has been modified. 3 to 4 bedrooms maximum. Typically 2 bathrooms maximum. This is an older neighborhood of well-kept single family bungalow-style and ranch homes. Most were built in the mid-to-late 1950s and into the early 1960s.

What do we love about 92111? That most people haven’t discovered it, and you can buy a home here and really make it your own. The front and backyards are really sizable and usable. (The post photo is one of our 92111 listings). And we like that the neighbors aren’t typically party animals who will respect your privacy, your quiet enjoyment and your lawn. People are kind, really interesting and often very longtime residents. These are not million dollar properties. These properties are the heart of San Diego.

The area isn’t really in full gentrification mode, which is good. It can be a bit of a hodgepodge in terms of commercial options, but there are several Starbucks, so the big corporations are here and thriving. Grocery store options are good, transportation is also very reliable once on Balboa or Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, and freeway access is good.

We love taking listings in this area because we already know the homes, the floor plans, layouts and the values so well. We know how to list and stage and sell them. We know some of the pitfalls (potential termites) and some things to watch out for (raised foundation plumbing issues come to mind — but most of the homes are well-maintained).

Here’s a chart on the real estate action and pricing in the last two years in San Diego 92111:

92111 Homes

This chart is from Sandicor as of March 2, 2016, and all 2016 data is year to date. With regards to 2016, our prediction is that the average sold price will be over $530,000 because the heavy summer selling season hasn’t yet started. Winter 2015/2016 was a slow time to list in San Diego and that’s only now changing in March.

We love this part of town, we know every street, shortcut, where to shop and where to eat, and can tell you the absolute best price for the house you want to BUY or SELL!

Are you ready to sell in 92111 or learn about buying options? Reach out! Call today (858) 268-4733, or email kerry@blendrealestate.com to get started!

Kerry Final PNG if listed owlBlend Real Estate is pleased to announce its new partnership with Cleanology of San Diego. Cleanology is a fantastic and serious housekeeping service located throughout San Diego County. CLICK THE PHOTO TO THE LEFT!

Now, when listing your home for sale with Blend Real Estate, we will pay Cleanology to come to your home and clean it top to bottom before it hits the market! This cleaning can occur right before the professional photography, so your home is truly sparkling for the photos! San Diego real estate never had it so good.

You as the home seller will enjoy your clean home while we are marketing it for sale. Cleanology uses its own products and tools, and everything will smell natural and fresh. There is nothing for you to do. Just say yes!

(This service does not include hauling away any items from your home or trash removal.)

Sellers VERY often have a hard time getting ready to sell. So we will pay for the “getting ready” part. And there’s more!

After the cleaning, Blend Real Estate steps in with its free Surface Staging program, really turning your house into a show place.

Surface Staging is something we invented and it means we buy new items and accessories for every surface of your home. It puts the right polish on each listing and explains why we sell our listings so fast, for such top dollar prices.

We are ready to meet you and schedule your free house cleaning and answer any questions. There are no catches!

In the meantime, we have a new secondary website devoted to home searching. Look for your new home or sign up for our newsletter here, at BlendHomeSearch.com.
