Condo Foreclosures Downtown San Diego
Downtown San Diego was hit so hard by foreclosures because the majority of condos were released between 2004- 2006 and sold at the peak of the market. Prices were inflated and have since declined 35-55% and there are some really great deals being bought up.
East Village, the ballpark district saw the most foreclosures in 2010 predominantly because it had the most new construction around the new Petco Park back in 2004. Cortez Hill and Little Italy followed up in second and third slots for most foreclosure condos. Cortez Hill is generally the least popular of the downtown neighborhoods with second home buyers because of the distance to the Gaslamp and Little Italy dining and entertainment areas.
With foreclosures hitting 4 year lows, we expect to see more short sale take their place. So far this year, invetory has been limited and we are seeing a rather competitive market. We see good deals come up, but they all seem to have a buyer or buyers waiting. The lower priced deals seem to go more quickly, but we are seeing condos in the $1M-$2M dollar range sell as well.
