Moving to La Jolla, California?

by Roberta Murphy

Moving to La JollaThinking of moving to La Jolla? Some cities are the embodiment of luxury, and La Jolla, California is no exception.

La Jolla is a paradise for both the traveler and the resident. Sitting just north of coastal San Diego, it offers a breathtaking coastline with heart-stopping views.

Add to this natural beauty a world-class village, designer shopping and boutiques, fine dining and lodging, a top-ranked university (UCSD) and medical school along with a climate that is arguably the best on earth and you have The Jewel, or La Jolla as Spaniards once called it.

Undoubtedly, La Jolla real estate is expensive and luxury buyers from all over the world would like to own some of their own. And with the declining dollar, more and more foreign buyers are considering La Jolla a prime real estate target.

With a population standing at around 35,000, there is a strong sense of community pride and connection with the outdoors, which averages an annual balmy 74 degrees.

La Jolla beaches are some of the most exquisite in the world, and range from the ever-beautiful and seal-populated La Jolla Cove, to the craggy cliffs at Blacks Beach, the sandy expanses at La Jolla Shores and the tide pools and surfing at Windansea. All offer stunning beauty and year-round photographic opportunities.

La Jolla real estate prices stood at a median of $663,000 in 2000-and have since mushroomed to over $1.4 million median, with average prices for a La Jolla single family home standing at over $1.8 million as of April 1, 2007–and likely even more today.

What about day-to-day living in La Jolla for residents? Its a university town, its a world class destination, and its a certain heaven for local residents.

Aside from the cultural offerings, the top-tier shopping, the beaches and the dining opportunities, there are also wonderful educational choices for families with children. The schools in La Jolla, both public and private, are very highly regarded throughout San Diego County:
