Need Help Finding Your Dream Retirement Home?
We Can Help! Our Business is- Helping Folks Retire to North San Diego County

It Helps to Plan Ahead for Your Home Search:
First define what is really important to you. Then, begin an intensive search for a home in a community that fits your personal retirement lifestyle requirements:

Your Price Range-
If you must finance your new home, try to get a loan approval ahead of time so you know how much you can spend and so you are prepared to make an immediate offer if you find the right home for sale.

City or Cities of Interest-

 You can find help here by clicking on OUR CITIES.

Type of Home and Communities of Interest-
You probably already know what you are looking for but it may be helpful to go back to the top of this webpage Top of Page and to define the types of homes and communities that may be acceptable to you.  Are you 55+ years of age? If so, you may be interested in both Active Adult Communities and All-Age Communities. If you are younger than age 55, you may need to restrict your search to All-Age Communities. Have you driven by homes for sale, through communities that you really like or have you found homes for sale that look interesting on the internet? Please tell us about them to help us understand the types of homes and communities that appeal to you. Remember, we work throughout all of North San Diego County and are familiar with all of our towns, cities and Active Adult Communities as well as many All-Age communities.

 Requirements for the Home You Are Looking For-

Style, Size, # beds, # baths, lot size, garage size, pet rules, etc. You may find our blog:  A Check-List of Considerations for Selecting Your Dream Retirement Home to be helpful.

Your Time-Frame for Purchasing a Home-
If "Later," focus now on investigating our cities and communities and the types of homes available in those communities. That information is available under the "Location:" and "View Communities:" headings above. If "Now," bring a pre-approval letter from your lender or bring a proof of funds statement and be ready to make an offer. Nice homes sell quickly.

Please Tell Us if You Are Presently Working with a North County Realtor-
We ask that if you are presently working with a realtor, you request all information from him or her.


or call (760) 473-4647 and tell us what is really important to you in your search for a home.
