San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood is quickly becoming one of the most desirable neighborhoods for Downtown San Diego Real Estate. Known for its rich history, Little Italy is one of San Diego’s top tourist destinations. Take one trip up India Street and you will see the authentic architecture and hint of culture that gives Little Italy its charm. The Little Italy Mercato, held every Saturday from 8am to 2pm on the corner of India and Date, is a fantastic Farmers Market with vendors specializing in: vegetables, fish, bread, sauces, pasta, and more. Even if you’re not in the mood to pick up any supplies, the Mercato is a must visit for any residents of Downtown San Diego.
Since the 1990’s, Little Italy has seen a steady increase in new residential housing options. Most of the newer options have a bold, contemporary look which has a lot of appeal to Little Italy’s largest growing demographic… young professionals. Many people, working at the edge of Downtown in the Financial and Core Districts, have taken refuge in Little Italy Condos for the opportunity to find great housing deals with great Downtown San Diego location. World renowned architect Jonathan Segal even undertook a new project in Little Italy. The Q Lofts, on West Fir and India St, were completed in 2011 and have been a fantastic addition to the modern look of the Little Italy skyline.
The available inventory of Little Italy Condos for sale has seen a steady rise since this time last year and is a strong indicator that the housing market has begun to rebound from record lows in 2012. Little Italy condos for sale made up 18 of Downtown San Diego’s 76 condo sales in February 2013, tying the Marina district as the second most active neighborhood for purchases. With current condo options including: Palermo, La Vita, Acqua Vista, Aperture, and Breeza, Little Italy Real Estate appears to be poised for a successful 2013.
