One of our more frequent requests from those knowledgeable about San Diego real estate is: Please show me a beach home or condo (more commonly known as “west of 5 homes”) where I can walk to the sand.
It’s a request we gladly grant if for no other reason than the fun of showing homes and properties west of 5 near the beach!
And because the stretch of beach territory in that corridor is pretty narrow from Oceanside through Carlsbad, Encinitas, Cardiff by the Sea, Solana Beach and Del Mar, we are offering a daily update on homes in these areas sitting between the Pacific Ocean and Interstate 5–hence the name and desire: West of 5 homes.
If you have questions about San Diego beaches or homes located near the ocean in Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach or Del Mar, call or text Scott Murphy, our San Diego beach home expert at 760-613-6190 or email email@example.com
