National City Real Estate

The Community Development Commission of National City has a $100 million vision -- a vision that is transforming San Diego County's oldest city into a revitalized "smart growth" community.  Located just five miles south of downtown, National City was founded in 1868 by real estate mogul Frank Kimball who, after scouting more than 17 tracts of Southern California land for new development, happened upon 26,631 acres of pristine waterfront land just south of San Diego. National City thrived, becoming a major California hub for rail lines, industry and agriculture.

140 years of history and some of the most historic Victorian homes in the County make redevelopment in National City a continuing process.  Included in the redevelopment is Paseo del Sol, a $12.5 million neighborhood project that transformed a run-down and dangerous cul-de-sac into a 132-unit affordable housing community complete with community center, landscaped park and swimming pool. The California Redevelopment Association named the project “Best Multifamily Residential Development”. 

National City’s subdivisions include Lincoln Acres and Pasadena Park, communities of mostly 1940s homes selling in the $300,000 to $400,000 range, and Rancho De La Nacion which borders Bonita, a diverse community with homes ranging from the affordable $300,000s to the millions for spectacular estates.
