Many are surprised to hear that Del Mar, CA has a population under 5000.
Del Mar homes are among some of the most expensive real estate in the world, offering a quaint tree-lined village, a gorgeous California beach, the Del Mar Race Track and Fairgrounds, and a train station that once brought the Hollywood crowd down for the famous race season and year round beach gatherings.
You’ll find a number of fine restaurants here, lodging possibilities, and it’s easy to reach by car or train. Many who visit return year after year to enjoy its beach, its village, the Del Mar Fair and of course, thoroughbred racing. But the search for Del Mar homes tops the list for many.
The lure of Del Mar, CA is a haunting one, and many vacationers end up looking for a second or primary home within its spectacular boundaries. These searchers may not find the precise home or condo they want here, and when this occurs we are usually able to locate beach-close properties in adjacent Solana Beach to the north and in La Jolla to the south. Those wanting larger homes that are still close to Del Mar often find Rancho Santa Fe and Carmel Valley to be excellent alternatives. All of these surrounding communities can reach Del Mar via local roads–and without ever driving on the freeway. The proximity to Del Mar Beach, Dog Beach and the quaint European-styled village make it an incomparable place to call home. (Del Mar is also far more navigable compared to La Jolla)
