Something we tell all of our buyers, and many times will accompany them, is to speak with the neighbors about the area, community, and any information they may have about the house they are considering putting an offer on. We suggest our clients do this before even making the next step as you don't want to waste time and money on inspections if something comes up that is not for you. San Diego County is a beautiful place to live and is made of many cities and towns such as Pacific Beach, Del Mar, La Jolla, and so on. The neighbors, especially those who have lived in the neighborhood you are considering for a long time, have a wealth of information that you may find helpful in making a decision. Infact, we had clients just cancel escrow because a neighbor said that this specific community had a bad eye gnat problem. These specific clients love to entertain and this would have been a huge problem if they completed the transaction. The sellers agent had no idea this was a problem and more than likely had my clients not reached out to the neighbors they would have closed escrow and found out later. These gnats are attracted to the eyes and feed on secretions of animals and humans.

My clients, although some hesitant to just go knock on the door, were always glad they took the time to talk to the neighbors and the majority of the time are met with open arms. Most of the time people speak highly of their community and encourage people to make the move. Buying a home is a big deal and it is our goal to make sure you are happy with your purchase. We believe the best information you can receive about a specific neightborhood is from people who live there, and it does make sense doesn't it.
