San Diego Neighborhoods:
Mission Hills

San Diego is a large and diverse area with many varied neighborhoods within its borders. But which one is right for you to call home?

This week on the San Diego Real Estate BLOG, we continue our series of BLOGS that will look at each of these neighborhoods in turn to help you decide which is the best fit for you as search for your San Diego Dream Home!!!

Today we head west from North Park to Mission Hills.




Mission Hills is bordered on the north by the 8 freeway, Old Town to the West, the 5 freeway to the southwest, and Hillcrest to the east, and Midtown to the southeast.



Mission Hills is a predominately white (77%) neighborhood made up of mostly married people with at least a college degree. In fact it is one of the best educated neighborhoods in America with over 33% of the population have a Master’s Degree or higher.

The median household income in Mission Hills is $72,960 per household.



The geography of Mission Hills has a mostly gradual grade rising gently up from west to east, but it is an average of 250 feet above sea level which gives it amazing views of the city, bay, and Point Loma to the south, old town to the west, and all the way over to Pacific Beach to the north west. These views are one of the many reasons Mission Hills is a highly sought after neighborhood. Mission Hills is also very close to many of the city occupational centers which gives its residents and average commute time of 15 minutes, a highly sought after perk in a city as commuter heavy as San Diego.


Real Estate Market

The Mission Hills real estate market is very heavily gentrified and becomes more so with each passing year. The area is highly developed, but not overly populated as many of the homes here are very expensive. The exception is the southeast corner which features a high concentration of apartments, condominiums, and town homes. Mission Hills offers a wide variety of homes including beautiful older Craftsman style homes and bungalows, many of which are classified as historically significant homes. There are also many modern homes, condos, and apartment complexes. Mission Hills is one of San Diego’s most desirable neighborhoods, and the home prices reflect that.

Mission Hills has a median home price of $1,115,410

General Info

Mission Hills is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in all of San Diego. The neighborhood has many desirable qualities including amazing San Diego weather, stunning panoramic views, a robust local food scene, short commute times, and both large, beautiful, historic homes, as well as many modern condos and apartments. The neighborhood is centrally located making it relatively close to all the that America’s Finest City has to offer, and the neighborhood is also very small and walk able, which is the cherry on the top. You can spend an entire weekend here and enjoy dining, shopping, and entertainment, and you don’t even really have to get in your car to do it. There are very few San Diego that offer all of the perks that Mission Hills has to offer, as such you will pay a premium to live here, but many would argue that that is fair price to pay for the value.

If Mission Hills sounds like a good fit for you and you would like help finding a home here, our Buyers Agents Svetlana, Dianna, and Linda would be happy to help you find YOUR San Diego Dream Home.
