La Mesa Homes For Sale And The Market
Hi People. Today we hit up part 3 in the series of La Mesa Homes For Sale And The Market and look at the quality of schools in that zip code compared to the home prices.
First off, according to Trulia.com (I do not suggest you use Trulia.com for getting home values on your property. They tend to be off. Ask me and I'll get you a more accurate value), the median home price in La Mesa's 91941 (from 7/10 to 9/10) is approx $417,000. There are currently 31 single family homes for sale under $400,000.
My good friend Stephen Moye at Crestline Funding said your payment on a home bought at $417,000 would be approx $1,690 (Conventional loan) & $2038 (FHA).
The schools in La Mesa have API scores from 775 all the way up to 907. The API Score is a number between 200 and 1000 that reflects a school's or school district's performance on statewide student assessments administered in 2009. The only other places in the county you will get those type of scores are Poway, La Jolla and the Northern coast of San Diego county and Coronado.
Now, we won't even talk about the beach areas because those prices are a whole different ballpark than La Mesa's. Poway does have great schools (Arguably the best). And, they do have plenty of good home prices with a median home price of $468,490. That comes to a payment of $1,899 coventional & $2290 FHA.
Now, add in La Mesa's charm and convenience and you'll find that 91941 is a sweet zip code to live, raise a family or invest.
