Schools of University City-San Diego, CA 92122  The schools within University City are typically held in high regard and demand. Most are walkable to the neighborhoods they serve and a short commute on surface streets for those on the outer edges of this San Diego community. Listed below are the schools that are within 92122 or a short commute to it at the college university level. University City of course gets it's name from it's immediate Western neighbor, University of California San Diego (UCSD). The Northern most area of UC is known as UTC or University Towne Centre which can be discerned by the natural division of University City by Rose Canyon, which splits 92122 in half geographically.  University City High School  Standley Middle School  University City Elementary Schools:  Do...

Balboa Park Sculpture  Balboa Park is a wonderful park in San Diego, offering abundant open space, multiple museums, intriguing architecture, the world famous San Diego Zoo, and quite a number of interesting scultures. I thought this was one of the more inspired pieces on one of our visits a number of years ago.

Why I Love San Diego #54 Yosemite National Park When I first went to Yosemite National Park and we drove down into Yosemite Valley I got out of the car and walked around with my eyes towards the sights and mouth wide open at the incredible site that I was seeing. It was unreal. There’s no picture anywhere that can show how large and magical this place is. It’s truly an amazing place to visit. I’ve been here several times and plan on going again soon. From camping on the forest floor to staying at the Ahwahnee Hotel this is a must see for anyone in the world. Living in San Diego puts us at about a 7-8 hour drive. One of my favorite places in California.The Lewis Team San Diego Real Estate Experts - 619-656-0655 - Buying or selling a home or condo call The Lewis Team today!Buying or selli...

Shout-out for Salus HomeCare in San Diego My mother fell, twice, 6 weeks ago and fractured her hip, resulting in a 5 week stay in skilled nursing for some rehabilitation, thankfully about 2 miles from our home. It’s been an intense 5 weeks and many hours each day with visits, various errands, meetings with staff especially physical therapists, taking care of bills, and checking in at her condo twice a day and taking care of her 2 cats, one who gets meds by mouth syringe twice per day for seizures. She was discharged from the skilled nursing facility (Brookdale) yesterday to return home, with a recommendation of 6 to 8 hours of home care daily, in addition to physical therapy, occupational therapy and nursing. Since she must use a walker for now there is a clear need to plenty of assista...

Lack of San Diego Real Estate Inventory in 2017Low inventory has caused the number of home sales in February 2017, which are completed transactions nationwide to drop 3.7% from January 2017. The properties counted in this analysis include single family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops. Although Realtors have been reporting a strong buyer presence wanting to purchase real estate, the problem is the lack of inventory of resale homes for sale. First time homebuyers made up 32% of the total sales in February 2017 compared to 33% in January 2017. All cash sales made up 27% of the real estate transactions in February 2017 and 23% in January 2017.Freddie Mac reports that the average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage is slightly up in February to 4.17 per...
