New Home Communities

(August, 2016)

New home dealers are usually happy to cooperate with real estate agents. This provides real estate agents with an opportunity to expand their sales portfolios and furnish more home options to their clients. it also gives the real estate buyer a buyer's agent to help ensure that they get a fair deal and help smooth-out the purchase and escrow processes.
Please let us know if you want to add New Homes to your search. Although MLS information is usually not available on them, we will do our best to introduce you to new communities that offer homes for sale that meet your requirements.
Below is an Overview of the New Home Communities in North San Diego County as of August, 2016:

There is only one Active Senior (Age 55+) Community of new homes for sale near North County; Its name is Auberge at Del Sur and it is located near the elegant city of Rancho Santa Fe. Its prices run from $647K to over $1M.

There are however, more than 87 communities of New Homes for people of All Ages in North County and vicinity.

Retirement Rentals

NOTE: We do not provide Retirement Rental leads
but here are some ways to help you find senior rental information

FOR SENIOR RENTALS:

Here is a 4-step plan to help you search for Senior Retirement Rentals (We sincerely hope it is of some value to you):

Step 1.
Click-on >
San Diego Craigslist to get to the San Diego Craigslist webpage. To show only Senior Rentals; first make sure that the top row of boxes contain the words: San Diego > North SD County > Housing > apts/housing for rent. The "Search" box has a hand-held magnifying glass symbol. In the Search box, type ďSenior" and the North County city where you want to live and "CA" (For example type in "Senior Oceanside, CA " or Senior and a different North County city and CA, possibly: San Marcos, Carlsbad, Fallbrook Escondido, Rancho Bernardo, Vista, etc.). Then hit the ENTER key. This should provide you with a list of rentals that are available in senior communities in that city.

Note: You may also "Post" an inquiry on Craigslist- Describe what you are looking for and ask if anyone has rentals available that meet your requirements.

Step 2.

Click-on > The Union Tribune Newspaper's Classified Ads: Look for the "FIND YOUR DREAM HOME BOX." Don't type anything in the "search by neighborhood, city, zip or address" box but type "SENIOR" in the next small box and click on "SUBMIT"..... Good Luck!

If Steps 1 and 2 don't locate a Senior Rental that meets your requirements, we suggest that you consider doing the following:

Step 3.
Click on >
Senior Communities and scroll down to a Senior Community that interests you.

Click on that Senior Community then look for "MAP" and click on it (it is usually located in the "Its Great Location" section. The Oceana Senior Communities are slightly different than the other community web pages. For the Oceana communities, you can access a map by clicking-on the underlined Oceana community name such as "Original Oceana." In the upper left-hand corner of each map, you will find the address of the entrance to the Senior Community. Drive to and enter the community of interest. If possible, check at the gate or club house for rental information and then drive around looking at the available rentals and look for "For Rent" signs. Don't forget to look for signs posted in the windows of condos.

Note: If it is a guarded gated community, go to the guard house and tell the person there what you are looking for and ask permission to enter. If the gate is closed or there is no one available at a guard house, park and wait for a resident to open the gate and then tell them what you are looking for and ask for permission to follow them in. It should be noted that Mobile Home Parks where the residents rent the spaces do not allow owners to offer their homes for rent. Mobile Home Parks where the resident owns the land however may have some rentals available.

Step 4.

CHECK ALL-AGE AND SENIOR APARTMENT RENTALS:

1.  Click on > Apartment Hunterz- Lists apartments for rent in North San Diego County.

2. Click on > Realtor.com/rentals and type in the City, Price Range and #Beds/Baths.

3. Click on > Affordable Apartments in San Marcos, Affordable Senior Apartments in Carlsbad Vista and Escondido.
