San Diego Housing Market Appears to be Sizzling​

The current housing market in San Diego is “very healthy” according to real estate site zillow.com. Currently, the average house value in San Diego is approximately $529,000. San Diego home prices began slipping slightly in the Fall of 2015 but now, compared to last year, home values have increased a tremendous 6.6%, and it is predicted that they will continue to rise another 3% within the following year. There was also an 8.3% increase in the average price per square foot in since a year ago at this time. The increase in home values is due to the overall good economic conditions of San Diego, which are supporting the gains. One key positive factors is the recent increases in residential construction, including single-family housing. Despite many of the positive figures, there are some experts who believe that San Diego is currently in a bubble, and trouble is on the horizon. But still, thirteen analysts in the recent San Diego housing study believe there is no real threat of a bubble or danger or collapse, not anytime in the next five years. The housing market of San Diego will most likely continue to flourish, or at the very least not hit the rough patch that it did two years ago.​

Buying a Home Makes Financial Sense​

The achievement of buying your own home is the epitome of success. The ability to buy and own one's home has been at the apex of the American Dream since the early 20th century. In fact, the position of owning property or a home has come with a sense of entitlement and inclusion into the upper tiers of society. Throughout history, owning property has given people the right to vote, the right to run for an office, given people a voice, and among other things respect and security. While buying a home in the 21st century may not carry the same weight, and given the option to rent may not be for everyone, it actually makes sense financially to buy a home in 2016.  Purchasing a home isn't just investing in a shelter of some sort with walls and a roof, buying a home is about investing in oneself. Instead of renting a home, where you are paying a certain amount of money each month to line a landlord's pockets, paying their mortgage on your hard earned dollar. That is money you will NEVER see again! What a waste! Buying your own home, and paying your own mortgage will eventually lead to you owning that home, and it gives you the option to make it a rental yourself in the future. There are also a number of tax benefits that come with owning a home. When you own your home you have the ability to deduct the interest you have paid on your mortgage from the total tax bill at years end! In addition to the tax incentives, owning a home increases your equity each year. So let go of any fear, hire a real estate agent, and buy a home in 2016. Not only will it be a smart financial decision, but it will bring with it a feeling of freedom, stability,and for your family for years to come. ​
