Rarely available are the apartment rentals that can be found a the "Ocean House" complex located at 400 Prospect in La Jolla, California.  It's hard to imagine a better location for a building that is situated high on a hill that overlooks the Pacific Ocean while being just a few block radius to the sandy beach.   We were honestly surprised to see rentals come on the market here as it's been many years since we have seen any listings for this complex come up in our multiple listing service.  There are currently three rental unfurnished rental properties that are being offered for lease that range slightly in price.

The most affordable option currently on the market is Unit #107 which features one bedroom, one bath with an approximate 746 square feet of

The really great part about living in La Jolla beyond the beautiful beaches and warm coastal weather is the large variety of properties that are available for sale.  These range from smaller residential condos like those found in the Villa La Jolla complex to ocean front condos found at the 939 Coast condo complex.  When looking for a condo in the La Jolla there is nothing better than finding a penthouse unit that often times offers wonderful views and a desirable floor plans.  Over the past several years we have seen some really great penthouse condos that have come on the market and often times sell for a premium price due to it's prime location.

One of the hidden gems when looking for a condo in the heart of the La Jolla Village area is the Herschel Avenue condos located at 7434 Herschel Avenue.  This is a rather small condo building with a total of 9 condos that exist here with a location that is within walking distance to a lot of the great shopping and restaurants found in the Village area.  What I love about some of the condos that are located here is that they can have soaring ceilings which give the illusion of more square footage than was is actually listed on the tax records.  Many of the owners have renovated these condos and a perfect example of this is a newly listed two bedroom, two bath condo listed at $925,000.  It features an approximate 928 square feet of living space and was

One of the smaller gated communities in La Jolla is the Casabella community in La Jolla.  These are residential townhouses located on a couple small streets with approximately 108 attached homes located here.  What I love about these homes is they have the look and feel of a traditional home even though they have attached walls to them.  The community itself looks very upscale when you enter into it with beautiful water features and stunning Mediterranean architecture with lush tropical landscaping.  The homes come with attached garages that gives the look of a traditional home with absolutely stunning interiors that really feel like a very upscale home. 

There is currently one home listed for sale that I'm absolutely in love with.  From the moment you

The Clinton Manor condo building in La Jolla has seen a lot of home sales in the last 6 years with real estate prices slowly climbing up.  Back in 2016 it wasn't uncommon to see a two bedroom condo selling in the high $600,000 to low $700,000 range with the number of days on the marketing ranging from 10 to 120 days.  In 2018, these numbers shifted upward and two bedroom condos begun selling in the high $700,000 to low $800,000 range.  The biggest shift happened in 2021 when these two bedroom condos for $1.1 million and higher with very short days on the market as well.  Of course, the year 2021 was probably one of the best years we have seen in Southern California in the last 20 years with very low inventory and a high demand from buyers who were looking

If you know the La Jolla area well then you know that living anywhere on Prospect street is very desirable due to the close proximity to the approach. Often time many of these condos will offer nice ocean views with a location that is situated in the heart of La Jolla.  This is the case for a condo complex called "Prospect Five" which is located at 322 Prospect Street.  This particular condo had sold back in 2016 for $750,000 and now is back on the market for sale 6 years later for $1,500,000.  The two bedroom, two bath condo features an approximate 1,220 square feet of living space and features ocean views from this 2nd floor location.  What I love about this condo is it's open floor plan that combines the living room, kitchen, dining room and outdoor

One of the common phrases you hear in real estate is that this is a "rare opportunity" for whatever a real estate agent is trying to sell.  One of the condo buildings where this actually may be the case is a small little condo building called Bonair Vista.  It's located at 760 Bonair Place in La Jolla, California with condos that rarely come on the market for sale.  We did a little research on this building was back in 2015 when a four bedroom townhouse with an approximate 2,466 square feet of living space sold for $1,350,000 after being on the market for only 1 day.  This was almost 7 years ago and real estate prices have changed since then with no other homes coming up in this complex of townhomes.  In fact, before then we were only able to find one

One of the more upscale areas to find a rental property is the Country Club area of La Jolla.  Over the last several years we have seen limited number of available rentals while there is still a huge demand for those looking for suitable rentals.  Often time these luxury properties are rented as furnished rentals for short periods of times which makes it tough for those looking for more longer term rentals.  A new Country Club rental home came on the market last month and is currently listed at $12,000 a month.  The property features a total of 3 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths with an approximate 4,643 square feet of living space.  It's being rented and the private remarks on this listing indicate that the owner is looking to rent it from May 1st to October 31st,
