Pros of Investing in Allied Gardens/San Carlos

Allied Gardens, Del Cerro, and San Carlos are boxed in by highways 15 and 125 on the west and east, and highway 8 on the south. They combine to make what may be one of the most popular rental pockets in all of San Diego, rivaling even the beach towns! Good Life consistently rents properties almost immediately in these zip codes, especially detached homes. It’s no surprise with the location across the 8 from San Diego State University and being sandwiched between the allure of shopping in Mission Valley and the charm of downtown La Mesa. Plus, rental rates tend to be a bit less than some of the more central neighborhoods in San Diego so the affordability is very appealing.

Cons of Investing in Allied Gardens/San Carlos

The only nitpicking that can be done of 92119 and 92120 is that many of the homes are older and have the common maintenance issues that accompany them (e.g., cast iron pipes or ancient single pane windows). When looking for investment properties here a healthy maintenance budget should always be factored in. Expect a hyper-competitive buying environment year round.
