Properties For Sale Under $300,000…

Downtown San Diego

Going, going, GONE!

Well, here we are approaching June 2012; and as predicted, entry level priced properties in the Downtown San Diego Zip Code 92101 are almost totally extinct!

Soon we may be talking about $200,000 condos in the Downtown area in the same context as the skeletal remains of the wooly mammoth that were found in the East Village a few years back….   Both topics make for great conversations from a snapshot in Downtown’s History.
