Why renting and property management in Pacific Beach is a good investment

Pacific Beach is a great place for those that like to be within walking distance of the beach, as well as some of the area’s trendiest bars and cafes. Garnet Avenue is filled to the brim with everything you could want–coffee shops, restaurants, brunch spots, grocery stores, and more.

Perhaps one of the most-loved coffee places is Better Buzz Coffee. They’re known for their signature “Best Drink Ever” and delectable avocado toast. Another hot spot is Crushed. While they’re open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, they are best known for their brunch and Instagram-worthy mimosa flights. For an eventful evening, head down the street to The Grass Skirt. This tiki-themed bar and restaurant has plenty of island drinks and bites to keep you entertained for a few hours.

A short walk away is the beach, a popular place for those who like to lay out, surf, and bike along the path (you can go all the way to Mission Beach & Boardwalk). Grab a sandwich from Board & Brew and head down to the water with some friends. If you get there early enough, you may be able to snag a bonfire pit for the evening!

There are a couple schools in the area, primarily for elementary and middle school ages. The housing in Pacific Beach is primarily apartments and condos as you get closer to the beach. There are more single-family homes toward the edge and in north PB.

Pros of Investing in Pacific Beach

There is a very high probability of healthy long-term appreciation in Pacific Beach due to its desirable location. Rentals in the area are highly sought after so there’s less vacancy time in general. You can also switch between vacation and long-term rental models depending on the season.

Cons of Investing in Pacific Beach

Seasonal fluctuation in the demand for rentals during winter can lead to decreased rental income if your tenants vacate in that season (November – January). Transient renters usually only stay a year or two, which can mean more frequent turnovers. The price-to-rent ratio is among the worst in county so monthly cash flow will be far from ideal.

What to Avoid in Pacific Beach Neighborhoods

When choosing where to buy your investment property, you should be on the lookout for a few things. These things can be a red flag for the kind of area you want to avoid. 

  • Trash in the front or backyard 
  • Vandalism nearby (graffiti, damaged property, etc.) 
  • Multiple vacant homes close by 
  • Poor street light; street feels unsafe
  • Foundation issues
