The residential crowd of La Jolla is quite mixed. There are many families that are raising their children here and sending them to both the public and private schools, which are excellent. There are many retirees here because of the great lifestyle that La Jolla affords, including theater, shopping, and dining. Many people own second and third homes here as well. They come to San Diego for the weather with the intent to escape either the heat or cold depending upon where they are coming from.
The average home price in La Jolla is $1,970,000 for the past quarter 2014.
There isn’t one particular building type. It’s quite eclectic with modern, Spanish, Tudor, Mediterranean, ranch and craftsman styles throughout.
