Real Estate Market

South Park is one of San Diego’s more expensive real estate market. The area is known for it’s gorgeous Spanish and Colonial Revival Homes, many of which are designated as historically significant homes. There has been a recent push to have the entire neighborhood designated as historically significant. While the homes in this neighborhood are predominantly single family residences, there are also some small apartment and bungalow courts. The area is heavily gentrified and is becoming more so by the day with many of the multi-unit homes being bought up and converted into single family residences.
