We bought at about the peak in South Park back in 2005 and we honestly did not spend all that much more on our new home in La Jolla which closed in May 2012. It is in Mount La Jolla and in that community, 2 homes are connected and then there is a space until the next set of two. We love it here and are thrilled with the move. Check it out!

However time is of the essence, although prices have not increased there are many more buyer's stepping into the market and there is competition on most of the listed properties.<br/><br/>With rates at approx 4% you have more buying power to obtain 'more home for your money' and that will have a greater cumulative effect of your total cost of ownership than slight price adjustments.<br/><br/>Happy to assist share with you the best deals available.<br/><br/>Jay<br/><br/><em>[website deleted by Zillow moderator.&nbsp; Please see our Good Neighbor Policy]</em> Tue, 12 Jun 2012 19:05:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-buying-a-home-in-La-Jolla-What-is-the-market-there-for-homes-under-1M/421227/ 2012-06-12T19:05:00Z La Jolla has many great homes ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-buying-a-home-in-La-Jolla-What-is-the-market-there-for-homes-under-1M/421227/ <p>La Jolla has many great homes under 1M, as well as some fantastic short-sale and foreclosure deals. The obvious advantage is the price difference. As the other agents state, there&nbsp;can be prolonged waiting and risk involved&nbsp;with added approvals from banks and changes in the market. You will also want to consider the condition of the home. Some short sales and foreclosures are left unkept and&nbsp;sometimes damaged.&nbsp;If you decide to go either route, I would be happy to help.

The Math Index is a easy tool to figure if you are making the right deal. Rents will always go up, where prices fluctuate. So if you aim for 10% of more on a purchase you are pretty safe.<br/>Example:<br/>38,000 for a 1 bed condo in Las Vegas, w/$100m HOA<br/>$650 rent- $100 HOA = $550x12months= $6600<br/>$6600/38000= 17.4% minus vacancy and repairs/maintence you are always a profit.
