For the last 12 years running, the San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper's annual reader's poll has named the master-planned development of Eastlake as the area's Best New Home Community.  Today, the development is comprised of 3,200 acres and more than 1,100 acres of parks, athletic fields, a golf course, hiking trails and a 21.5-acre lake.

Currently there are a total of 55 houses for sale in Eastlake ranging in price from $250,00 to $700,000.   There are 111 homes that are in "Contingent" status, which means the seller has accepted an offer and the bank is considering accepting the short sale.  In order to be in Contingent status, the property is most likely a Short Sale.  What is a Short Sale?  A Short Sale is when the owner owes more than they can sell it for on the open market.  There are currently 83 homes in escrow (Pending status, which means the buyer and seller have agreed upon terms and price and are now in escrow).  There have been a total of 104 homes that have sold since Jan. 1, 2012.   The average sold price for a single family detached home in the first quarter of 2012 was $369,000.

The statistics above can change from day to day.  Eastlake is a very desirable city and a buyer looking in this area needs to have an aggressive FULL TIME Real Estate agent looking for homes every day, 7 days a week.
