The Historic Homes of San Diego

San Diego was established in the late 1700s and has had a thriving history ever since then. Remnants of this history like significant houses are still with us because of the efforts from groups like the Save Our Heritage Organization, who have fought to preserve historic sites. All of the following homes are all still standing and are central to our local history.

Sherman-Gilbert House

Now a key feature of Heritage Park, this Stick Eastlake style home was the first home to be saved from demolition by SOHO. Constructed and built by John Sherman, the home famously housed sisters Bess and Gertrude Gilbert, who were significant figures in the San Diego arts scene.

Home Buying for Millennials

Whether it’s about technology, the decline of the napkin industry, or what the acceptable rates of avocado toast consumption are, millennials are commonly at the center of popular discussion topics. So how do millennials fit into the housing market, and if you are a millennial, what do you need to know to make sure that your home buying experience is ideal?

The Modern Home Buying Climate

In articles like these, millennials are commonly discussed as if they are bizarre, mythical beings incapable of being understood. While they/we do have their differences from other generations, that could be said for any younger generation. The main cause for the seemingly low number of home buying millennials isn’t a generation-wide character trait, but rather the state of the market that they are entering.

For one, home prices are high and expected to continue the rise. This forecast isn’t a way for banks or the real estate industry to profit off of predictions, because it is based past history and future economic inflation projections which show that over time housing prices increase (see chart below). Short-term variation and recessions may cause temporary turbulence in ...

Will the New Amazon Headquarters Be Located in San Diego?

One of three campus designs proposed by the city of Chula Vista

On Tuesday, Aug. 10, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted to make a bid for San Diego to become the home of Amazon’s second headquarters.  

Last month, Amazon announced that it was building a second headquarters. The location of the headquarters will be selected through a competitive process. While anyone can submit a request for proposal, Amazon has laid out preferences for their location that favor larger cities. Some of these requirements are things like proximity to population centers, highways, and international airports, population size, economic climate, and sustainability.

There is fierce, nationwide competition over the Amazon headquarters location since Amazon can greatly contribute to local economies. From 2010 to 2016, Amazon’s original Seattle campus provided jobs for tens of thousands of employees and led to a $38 million dollar boost in revenue.

Many cities are offering lucrative incentive packages to Amazon. At the time of this article, the highest incentive package is Newark, New Jersey’s tax-based package that would equal $7 billion dollars in ...

Defensible Spaces – How to Prepare Your Home for Wildfires

A red flag warning was placed on most of San Diego County this week following the onset of Santa Ana winds and low humidity that greatly increase the chance of wildfire. Authorities are on high alert for wildfire activity in California following the increase in vegetation from 2016’s storms combined with the dry conditions we saw in this year’s drought. While October is considered to be the peak month in “fire season,” wildfires are unpredictable and unexpected, so it’s wise to take preventative measures for wildfires. The best way to do this is by creating a defensible space around your home.

A defensible space is a buffer zone between your home and especially flammable materials such as trees, grass, shrubs, and other forms of vegetation. The term “defensible space” refers to firefighting, with homes that have a better defensible space being safer and easier for firefighters to protect. So making sure that your home has a defensible space not only decreases the odds of your home catching fire, it also increases the odds that the authorities will fight for your home if many homes are in danger of catching fire.

Defensible spaces are divided into two different zones with different requirements. ...
