Oceanside Information

Zip code 92054 offers some great Oceanside ocean view homes and a few spectacular Oceanside whitewater view homes.   But most of the people live in the inland portion of Oceanside.  Homes in Oceanside range from Oceanside starter homes to multi million dollar oceanview estates.  in 2009, according to the North County Association of Realtors, the median price of Oceanside homes inland was $315,000 and the price near the coast was $342,000.  The marine base, Camp Penelton,  provides homes for our heroes, over 36,000 marines and their families and covers over 125,000 acres.  The influx of the marines and their families created a need for many Oceanside homes both on and off base.   These young families mixing in the community make Oceanside’s medium population age 33, one of the youngest in San Diego County.  Gary Harmon, also, strives to help our seniors find great homes in areas like Ocean Hills Country Club.

Oceanside’s location makes it a commuter community to downtown San Diego and to Orange County, which is just north of San Diego County.  Oceanside homes for sale are some of the most affordable in San Diego County. The median price is only about 2/3 of Carlsbad homes and Encinitas homes, the coastal cities to the south.  This lower price is more affordable for marines, young couples, and retirees.  Low property tax and the availability of land are the main contributing factors to the lower prices of Oceanside real estate.  Although property tax varies by Oceanside neighborhoods, it is about 1.1% of the Oceanside homes value.
