North County Coastal Real Estate

North County Coastal area is one of the most in-demand real estate markets in the United States. Popular with upper to middle-class buyers, the prosperous beach communities that comprise North County Coastal offer both beach and inland real estate that is primarily made up of single-family homes. Because the coastal communities draw thousands of tourists throughout the year, many condos and townhomes are available for rent or sale near the beaches.

After the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton was established in 1942, Oceanside has gone through a major transformation. Home to thousands of U.S. armed forces staff, Oceanside is considered to have historical value, as many of its homes for sale are preserved and remodeled.

A few miles south of Oceanside is the wealthy resort city of Carlsbad. Home to over 100,000 people, five-star star luxury resorts and quaint hotels characterize the city. Locals have nicknamed their town "The Village by the Sea", thanks to its seven miles of sandy beaches next to a shopping district moments away from the boardwalk. The majority of Carlsbad homes for sale are primarily single-family beach homes.

The quaint town of Encinitas is home to over 50,000 people and its real estate includes single-family homes, condos, and townhomes both on the beach and inland. Perfect for surfing, its beaches including Swami's and Moonlight Beach are rated top 5 in surfing locations in the world.
