Default Moving to LaJolla area - need advice

Hi everyone:

we will start jobs in La Jolla this fall (at UCSD). We would like to buy a house in a neighborhood within 10 miles of the university that (a) has good public schools; (b) has sidewalks; (c) has people our age with kids. Any advice would be much appreciated!

p.s. our maximum price is $850,000.

Based on the info you've given, I bet you'd like Carmel Valley (zip 92130). Specifically an area called Torrey Hills. Good schools, newer homes with sidewalks, and very family-friendly. You'd be about 5 miles (less than a 10 minute drive) from UCSD.

Here's a writeup about Torrey Hills:

Here's a sample house in Torrey Hills:
3975 Corte Mar De Brisa, San Diego, CA 92130 | MLS# 120021427

bunga,

First off, we have no idea how old you are based on the above lol
Secondly, are you familiar with/visited San Diego or La Jolla at all?

Aside from that, cruitr has really good advice.

I'm sorry I forgot to mention our ages: we're in our early 40's and we have children in middle and high school.
