San Diego Real Estate: Luxury Report

Luxury Report for San Diego Real Estate
San Diego Luxury Home

Whether we can afford or not, it is always interesting to follow the luxury market in San Diego real estate to see how it is faring. And this Luxury Report should be interesting.

We are turning this little article into a luxury report that will focus not only on San Diego real estate which includes La Jolla, but also homes in Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Coronado, Ocanside and Poway.

And when speaking or writing about luxury real estate, location makes all the difference in the world. A luxury home in parts of Houston can be had for $500,000, while Dayton, Ohio might be much less than that. And what we in San Diego County consider to be a luxury home at $3 million might be a modest home in Silicon Valley or Atherton–or a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan or London.

And for the purposes of this article, San Diego real estate will encompass ALL of San Diego County and will arbitrarily include all homes priced at and above $3 million, with newest listings appearing first. Below that, I will list all $3 million San Diego home sales in the past year. One thing is guaranteed: You will see far more luxury homes currently listed than have sold in total during the past 12 months.

This tells us several things:

  • Buyers for $3 million + homes, though not uncommon, are fairly rare. Most buyers of San Diego real estate are aiming for prices under $1 million. 
  • If you own a $3 million+ home, be prepared for it to sell quickly if a rarity, or more likely, sit back and be prepared to be on the market for months or more. 
  • San Diego has some of the loveliest settings for luxury homes in the world. We have oceans, mountains and arguably the finest weather on the planet.

Below, you will see and perhaps be surprised by the number of homes in San Diego priced at and above $3 million. And should you be interested in previewing one, give Roberta or Scott Murphy a call at either 877-818-8197 or 760-613-6190. Or email: scott@sandiegopreviews.com

Almost 4000sf of urban interior perfection transitions seamlessly into what is perhaps the grandest outdoor living offering of 3 massive terraces in San Diego highrise living. Formal and informal entertainment and gathering spaces, dual Primary Suites that have no peer, and views stretching 270 degrees over some of San Diego’s most pristine vistas. Introducing the new look of luxury in San Diego’s prized Bankers Hill neighborhood. This curated collection of residences at 41 West exemplifies the passionate life that is Southern California, with a nod to the easy living feel that is uniquely San Diego. Careful consideration was given to create a product grand in scale, yet smartly crafted for today’s active lifestyle. Each facet of the building has been carefully vetted to provide its residents an ideal urban lifestyle. The developer’s vision and center of inspiration was all about maximizing the indoor to outdoor transitional living experience. Welcome to the NanaWalls. These State-of-the-Art telescoping walls of glass, featured in every residence, provide a seamless experience with minimal frames, sleek clean lines and providing expansive unobstructed views whether opened or closed.

Staying true to Green and sustainability, individual EV charging stations can be installed at your unit’s assigned parking! There is a continuity in this building that flows from the grand two-story lobby entrance, all the way to the oversized Mitsubishi elevators. Speaking of Grand Lobby, the original plans actually had a full residence that was removed from the final design to create this grand entrance. Every person who enters 41 West now encounters a stunning experience each and every time they return home or to visit. 41 West offers the latest in discerning amenities and security. It begins with 24-hour lobby attendant and secure underground parking, FOB controlled doors, elevators and common areas, plus 24/7 video monitoring provides that extra level of security.

It’s the perfect community gathering place. Adjacent to the lounge is a private fitness center that welcomes your personal training sessions (with appointments) and offers towel and water service. Arguably the cherry on top is the pet wash and grooming center with easy access to an alternate exterior building exit. Add to this the best bicycle and storage room you have seen in Metro San Diego and you will be hooked! As you can see, the community amenities are plenty, but the biggest one is being on the doorstep of San Diego’s Crown Jewel playground - Balboa Park! Whether it’s walking, picnics, bicycling, theater, museums or nature walks, residents will have the year-round enjoyment of one of the largest and most diverse city parks in the entire United States. 41 West is not just an address but truly the coveted lifestyle that defines luxury living in San Diego.
