Homes in Oceanside, CA
Oceanside is the northernmost city in San Diego county.
Further north is 17 miles of Camp Pendleton Marine Base, separating San Diego County from Orange County. The city is geographically large, extending from the ocean to Fallbrook.
Oceanside has the only harbor between Dana Point and Mission Bay, and the only pier in north county. Here you’ll find affordable housing with many homes below the county average home price.
Oceanside is the last true real estate bargain along the Pacific Coast. Oceanside offers 3.5 miles of some of San Diego County’s widest and most beautiful beaches, a 900-slip small craft harbor, one of the largest wooden recreational piers on the West Coast, and the “king” of the California missions, Mission San Luis Rey. Oceanside’s coastal location enjoys cooling breezes in the summer, and its climate is part of a region recognized as the mildest in the entire continent of North America.
The city provides 2 public golf courses and operates 26 parks, community centers, and swim centers. Health care is nearby at Oceanside’s Tri-City Medical Center, which is surrounded by many private medical offices and an outpatient surgical center. The city also provides police and fire public safety services, water and sewer services, trash pickup, two libraries, and a recreational program for parks and schools. Oceanside has a commuter train station for the “Coaster” which offers service to downtown San Diego, and is also a stop for the Metrolink train to Orange County and Los Angeles.
The eastern end of town has a beautiful master planned community, Rancho del Oro, which is both newer and affordable, a rare combination in San Diego County. Everything east of College Blvd. is in the Vista school district.
There is also a finger of Oceanside that is south of route 78 sandwiched between Carlsbad and Vista known as Ocean Hills. This area is newer, feels like part of Shadowridge, and has some larger homes that are a real value in my opinion. Ocean Hills is also the home of Ocean Hills Country Club, the premier senior area in San Diego.
So if you’re looking for coastal living on a budget, I would definitely check out Oceanside real estate.
