La Jolla is One of the Most Expensive Housing Markets in U.S.

Everyone knows La Jolla is incredibly beautiful, privileged, and amazing, but what exactly makes it such a high-ticket home area? How is it that much better than any other part of San Diego?  La Jolla has been ranked as one of the most expensive places to live in all of the country, time and again, so you have to wonder, if people are willing to pay that much to live there, what’s it got going on?

First off, if you’re living in La Jolla, you are basically on top of the ocean. The full name of our lovely city is La Jolla by the Sea. You can purchase homes that face the ocean, where you wake up and can look out into that gorgeous, blue Pacific. You are hard-pressed to find a place to live in La Jolla that will take you longer than ten minutes to fall into some sand, and this prime spot is going to cost more than an inland house with nothing but grass surrounding it’s walls.

The entire vibe of La Jolla screams decadence. The sand is soft, the weather is always gorgeous, the restaurants are perched on top of cliffs over looking the waves. When you dine at George’s on the Cove, you can sit in front of their massive glass walls and watch dolphins leap as you eat your dinner. There are fine art galleries lining trendy streets next to storefronts carrying designer labels and fashionable stylings. Book a room at the Hotel Parisi and see what luxury is really about, or just simply walk down the beach and enjoy the truly unmatched view.

It’s really not a surprise that the average home in La Jolla is around $1 million after spending one day in this glorious city. The beaches are better than any other, the shopping is better than other shopping, and the location is unmatched throughout the country. La Jolla is the place to hang up your flip-flops and don your high heels. While much of San Diego is regarded as a relaxed, beach-bum arena, La Jolla changes all of that the moment you cross over to those beachside bluffs.
