Specializing in Downtown San Diego Condos.
This week has been a good one to me and other lovers of the 800 Mark lane building in East Village! After waiting for a while on some new inventory, we finally got three new diverse listings and what’s even more important – in three really distinct different price ranges for every buyer out there.
First to come on the market was a corner unit 2001 in the Mark, 2br 2ba with 1321 sq ft, this one is definitely a great condo with 180 degrees city and perfect ball park views that most have been waiting for. The Mark is located 1 block from Petco Park and 2 blocks from the GasLamp District. Units on the 20th floor and above have 10? ceilings with floor to ceiling windows! Unit is upgraded with GEMonogram appliances, granite kitchen counter tops, remote controlled custom window shades, soft close cabinetry, travertine and marble counter tops in the bathrooms and a custom in the master. This gem has been priced at $764,000 and has been on the market barely 10 days.
Second unit 2801 at 800 mark lane, is definitely a rare opportunity to own one of the highly coveted PENTHOUSE units at The Mark! Located on the 28th floor, occupying the entire SOUTH, WEST and NORTH wing of the building, this penthouse boasts 10 foot ceilings with floor to ceiling windows perfect for watching a baseball game at Petco Park, savoring a gorgeous sunset or enjoying the San Diego Bay view. Includes 2 spacious bedrooms with large customized walk in closets, 2 1/2 baths, an elegant den and 2 large balc
onies perfect for entertaining! The sq footage on this is condo is roughly 2011. The HOA fees for this beat
y are $845 per month.
And third, but not least, here comes the awesome entry level walk up unit 102 at the Mark for $399,000! It’s a 1br 1ba, 803 sq ft and features the largest private patio (250 sq ft) off the pool and spa. 12.5 ceilings, hardwood floors, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, travertine bath (shower), walk-in closet, entry hall, fitness center, 24 hour concierge, Spacious common grounds. This particular unit is also available for lease @ $2600/month.
So we have three completely different listings at the Mark this month for 3 unique buyers! Who is going to get them?.. Can’t wait!
Here and there I get some clients that want to live Downtown San Diego, yet they don’t want to pay HOA’s or settle for a less than 2000 sq ft place!
I smile to those people and say – Banker’s Hill or Golden Hill!
Those both neighborhoods are really close to Downtown San Diego and all that urban living has to offer, but yet aren’t in the middle of all the noise and action and come without a hefty price tags but WITH the large sq ft.
An example of one of those homes would be 2727 Broadway house that came on the market last month. Being three full bedrooms with an optional 4th plus a den/dining room area, it has all that one would want from the house. Absolutely beautiful Craftsman minute from Gaslamp City Square. Kitchen completley redone in 2009. Bonus room can easily be converted to a fourth bedroom. This is a truly special home that you’ll want to see.

DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO CONDOS FOR RENT IN 2012. WHAT’S AVAILABLE?…
Specializing in helping people buy and sell properties in San Diego, especially the Downtown market, I often get approached by folks asking for help with rentals. Now I have to be honest, it is not the most gratifying for agents job and definitely not the most lucrative one, but once you learn the trade and weed out through the looky loose, you can generate some life long clients who eventually either do buy or sell themselves or know somebody who do. So in order for me to expand my reach Downtown SD, I have since rolled up my sleeves and have been helping many realistic renters find their new homes in the chic 92101 zip code. That is my whole priority. I go out there, meet new people, talk, network, practice my knowledge of the buildings again and again, and help people, which after establishing a relationship with me, usually continue it once they’re ready for a purchase.
So the whole reason for this blog is for people who are contemplating a move Downtown San Diego! I get phone calls, emails and just simple questions at social events asked all the time about what what are the prices for downtown rentals. I also get a bunch of request to find a property, and I have to be honest with you around 75% of people who just approach me first time are not realistic about their expectations.. Now I have absolutely no problem with that, since it is not their job, but actually mine to know what you can get, what amount of sq ft, floor, and for what price Downtown and not theirs. But just to shine some light on the average rental prices I HAD to publish this blog!
So let’s talk some real statistics and numbers to give you couple examples. There are currently 85 listings for rent Downtown San Diego.
6 studios/lofts, 37 1bedrooms, 36 2bedrooms, 5 3 bedrooms!!! That’s all we have in 92101 zip code!
First of all it’s not much. Second of all, if you are looking for a 3br, 2000 sq ft AND furnished condo AND for just 3 months AND under $3000, AND that’s accepting pets, you can pretty much forget about that..
Let’s face the facts. An average two bedroom condo Downtown San Diego would be around 1200 sq ft, with the average price of $3500 a month. On the average one br condo price is currently $2200 a month, with the average sq ft being 790 sq ft. Most of them do not accept pets, or will lots of restrictions.

For larger size condos, like 3 brs, we have only 5 units currently available in the whole Downtown San Diego 92101 zip code!. The prices start from $2900 and go up to $6900 a month.
Now, please don’t get disappointed right away. There are absolutely cases where you can get a Downtown San Diego condo that rents way under above price range, but you have to either compromise on the number of bedrooms, or the length of the lease or the min sq ft, etc.
Please let me know if I can help you or somebody you know rent or buy/sell a condo Downtown San Diego!. It is my neighborhood and my specialty so I would love to be your go to agent here!

1. Two Extra Days to File! This year, April 15 falls on a weekend, so that pushes the deadline into the following week. But, that’s not the end of the story. This year, Emancipation Day–which is a legal holiday in the District of Columbia–will be observed on Monday, April 16. And since the tax deadline cannot fall on a holiday, it means the due date for filing your tax return is extended to Tuesday, April 17, 2012.
2. Extension to Make IRA Contributions! In addition to the tax deadline being extended by two days, the deadline to contribute to your IRA is also extended to Tuesday, April 17, 2012. Along with this announcement, the IRS put together a list of 10 things you need to know about setting aside retirement money in an IRA.
3. Options for Paying Uncle Sam! If you’re experiencing money troubles and you owe money on your taxes from last year, you may be eligible to receive a 6-month extension on your payment. And you may be surprised to learn about the details of this program! Read about the important qualifications and implications of the IRS announcement.
Here are the top 10 things the IRS wants you to know about setting aside retirementmoney in a traditional IRA.
- You may be able to deduct some or all of your contributions to your IRA. You may also be eligible for the Savers Credit, formally known as the Retirement Savings Contributions Credit.
- Contributions can be made to your traditional IRA at any time during the year or by the due date for filing your return for that year, not including extensions. For most people, this means you must make contributions for 2011 by April 17, 2012. If you contribute between Jan. 1 and April 17, you should designate the year targeted for the contribution.
- The funds in your IRA are generally not taxed until you receive distributions from it.
- Use the worksheets in the instructions for either Form 1040A or Form 1040 to figure your deduction for your IRA contributions.
- For 2011, the most you can contribute to your traditional IRA is generally the smaller of the following amounts: $5,000 for most taxpayers, $6,000 for taxpayers who were 50 or older at the end of 2011 or the amount of your taxable compensation for the year.
- Use Form 8880, Credit for Qualified Retirement Savings Contributions, to determine whether you are also eligible for a tax credit equal to a percentage of your contribution.
- You must use either Form 1040A or Form 1040 to deduct your IRA contribution or claim the Credit for Qualified Retirement Savings Contributions.
- You must be under age 70 1/2 at the end of the tax year in order to contribute to a traditional IRA.
- To contribute to an IRA, you must have taxable compensation, such as wages, salaries, commissions, tips, bonuses, or net income from self-employment. If you file a joint return, generally only one spouse needs to have taxable compensation. However, see Spousal IRA Limits in IRS Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements, for additional rules.
- Refer to IRS Publication 590 for more information on contributing to your IRA account.
Form 8880 and Publication 590 can be downloaded at www.irs.gov or ordered by calling 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
Hope this helps!
