    Question What housing area do you live at in San Diego?

    Advertisements
    I know this hasn't been asked in a while..

    just wondering!

    Also.. please add any pro's and con's about the area...

    and if you'd recommend another housing area.

    Also... how long did it take you to get housing.

    Thanks!!!

    We've lived in Lofgren Terrace and Serra Mesa. I love both area. Neither one we waited for long at all. Lofgren is a bit worse of a drive to bases because it is south of the bases so when you are trying to get home there is a lot of traffic. However the area was nice. Serra Mesa is great. It is close to lots of different freeways and takes DH only about 15 minutes to get to work. Getting home isn't bad ever either, about 20 minutes tops.

    Lofgren Terrace.. I love the neighborhood, and Eastlake is AWESOME. Very upscale, very clean.... The only con is that if we were to take the bigger house we qualify for, we'd have to move.. DH's advancement qualled us for Sr. housing. The major reason we're not moving is because we don't want to give up living in Eastlake, but can't afford to rent.

    Lofgren was immediately available when we got here in April of last year. We're in a 2 bedroom, and while it has no yard, there are TONS of playgrounds for the kids to play on. There are 2 within 500 feet of my house.

    I've seen Brandi's house on the Orleck side of Murphy Canyon, and it was very nice too.. there's a bit more of a wait since everyone wants to live in MC.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    DH never hits traffic from 32nd... he doesn't go 805 at all.. He takes 54 to Bonita rd. and comes home that way..it takes about 15 mins.

    That's the way to go!!! Also the new freeway(125) will help to ease A LOT of the traffic, if it hasn't already.

    Robert hit traffic living there coming from Coronado and going that way. It wasn't horrible traffic but it was indeed some traffic. We loved that area though, it was very pretty.

    It's open, and looks to be helping.. we took it home from Grossmont center the other day.. The Southbound part is a tollway.
