San Marcos Real Estate

San Marcos is one of the fastest-growing cities in San Diego County.  Located in 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the city's 34 square miles of rolling hills and valleys provide affordable housing and a supportive business environment. The city has adopted a far-reaching master plan for its civic center and future development.

San Marcos has a variety of condominiums, golf course homes, town homes, and single-family residences.  While the area retains its rural, agricultural character with famous sites such as the Buena Creek Nursery, it is increasingly becoming an attractively priced alternative to the coastal communities, offering good schools, great quality of life, and a building boom.

With new homes ranging from the low $300,000s to the millions, San Marcos has something for every buyer and every budget.  San Marcos offers an excellent investment opportunity with many new communities currently being planned and built.  Among them, Rancho Coronado, one of the most affordable options, features urban style attached homes in the Portarosa and Corte Bella communities.  Olive Hills Estates in the San Marcos hills offers larger homes on oversized lots from the $500,000s.  Other new and planned communities include Loma Alta, Campana, Lucido, Silver Crest and Dove Valley.
