San Diego Real Estate News – North County Prices

Solving the Real Estate Puzzle

There’s a saying in Real Estate.  No, I don’t mean “location, location, location.”  The saying I’m referring to is that “all real estate is local.”

This means that even though prices may be going down in one neighborhood, they may be actually going up in others.  Usually we think of price differences like this being influenced by classic supply and demand.  If, for instance, a particular  school is in high demand, homes in that neighborhood might therefore be in similar high demand, and priced accordingly.
