Some cities are the embodiment of luxury, and La Jolla, California is no exception.
Coastal La Jolla is paradise for both the traveler and the resident. Sitting just north of San Diego, it offers a craggy and breathtaking coastline with heart-stopping views.
Add to this natural beauty a world-class village, high budget shopping, fine dining and lodging, a top-ranked university (UCSD) and medical school--along with a climate that is probably the best on earth, and you have The Jewel, or La Jolla as Spaniard explorers once called it.
Granted, La Jolla real estate is expensive and luxury buyers from all over the world would like to own some of their own. With a population standing at around 35,000, there is a strong sense of community pride and connection with the outdoors, which averages an annual balmy 74 degrees.
La Jolla beaches are surely some of the most breathtaking in the world, and range from the ever-beautiful and seal-populated La Jolla Cove, to the craggy cliffs at Blacks Beach, the sandy expanses at La Jolla Shores and the tide pools and surfing at Windansea. All offer stunning beauty and year-round photographic opportunities.
La Jolla real estate prices stood at a median of $663,000 in 2000-and have since mushroomed to over $1.4 million median, with average prices for a La Jolla single family home standing at over $1.5 million.
It might also be remembered that when times get tough, wise money shifts to quality and blue chip real estate investments. And La Jolla is a precious jewel in that world of real estate and investment.
