Overview

About Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach, often referred to as OB for short, is one of the most culturally distinct communities in San Diego County. From the Ocean Beach drum circles to the fire dancers and spinners, you’ll be hard pressed to find another community with such traditions and culture. The locals in Ocean Beach enjoy their unofficial events so much that they even defied public health policies during the 2020 pandemic.

Ocean Beach, located on the coast of San Diego, California, is known for its laid-back, hippie beach vibe. This area is just south of Mission Beach and directly north of Point Loma.

The area is home to the popular Ocean Beach pier, OB dog beach, and unique independent shops and restaurants. There are almost no chain stores in the area, which is part of its appeal. Ocean Beach has become a popular attraction for hippies and those searching for a more laid-back lifestyle.

Even though the neighborhood is somewhat secluded and hidden from regular tourist destinations, it is just a 15-minute drive from the San Diego airport and downtown San Diego.

Why owning rental property in Ocean Beach is a good investment

Ocean Beach’s strong sense of community and fun environment make it a highly sought-after place to live. From the unique restaurants and shops to the community gatherings for music and fire dancing, you’ll be hard pressed to find another neighborhood with such a distinct culture and sense of community in San Diego, California.

Of the 13,507 occupied housing units in Ocean Beach, 62.88% are renter-occupied. Therefore, you can expect a high demand for rental property in this area. By investing in rental property, you can gain consistent rental income. With Ocean Beach’s proximity to the beach and its central location to downtown and the airport, property owners can generally get higher rental rates than the rest of San Diego County. Overtime, San Diego’s generous property appreciation trends will make Ocean Beach real estate a good investment.

With a qualified and reputable property manager, like Good Life Property Management, you can also gain the benefits of an investment property without the hassle and headache of managing tenants. We take care of tenant screening, property inspections, maintenance, and more. Continue reading to learn more about our offerings.
