City Guide
Looking for a Home in Lakeside

About 70% of residents here own their home. Of course, this means that more than a quarter of the homes here are rentals. Just be sure to act fast on the rental apartments and houses you find that you really like because the low vacancy rate means you might have trouble finding the perfect place right away.

What can you expect to spend on Lakeside housing costs?

Perhaps because this area is a little removed from the coast, the median home value in Lakeside is a little under California's average. Accordingly, the average rent is a little less also, so you might not be as broke as you assumed once you move here.

What should you take during your property search?

The extremely low vacancy rate indicates that you should be prepared to put money down as soon as you find a suitable house, apartment or condo for rent. This means you should bring your last few pay stubs, your checkbook and some thick skin in case you get edged out by another renter.

Lakeside Neighborhoods

Most of Lakeside is made up of one major neighborhood, but there are a few smaller areas that also feature homes and businesses. They include the following:

Foster / Barona: This makes up the majority of Lakeside, and it is located on the eastern side. The homes here are mostly single-family, but you might be able to find a duplex for rent because there are other housing types sprinkled in. The main attractions here are Barona Creek Golf Club and Lakeside County Park. So if you love the outdoors look here for homes.

Town Center: Cactus County Park is just one of the main draws here. Like any other city center, you'll find lots of shops and places to eat, along with tons of city apartments.

Lakeview: Here you'll find lots of spacious houses and townhomes. In fact, that's pretty much all you'll find, because there are few businesses in this neighborhood. But the area has the benefit of being just south of the scenic Lindo Lake.

Eucalyptus Hills: On the western edge of Lakeside is this neighborhood that features a mixture of housing types, including 1- and 2-bedroom apartments. Plus, the area encompasses the gigantic Sycamore Canyon County Park.

Lakeside Living

The San Diego Metropolitan Transit System features two bus routes to help Lakeside residents get around town. If you prefer to drive your own car, prepare to drive often on State Route 67 and Kumeyaay Highway, otherwise known as the 8.

If you like fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding or just sprawling by large bodies of water, Lakeside is perfect for you. It stays true to its name, since it's the home of Lake Jennings and a few major reservoirs. Plus, when you live in Lakeside it's just a 20-minute drive west until you're at the beach!

And if you prefer indoor activities, a trip to nearby Barona Casino will have you absolutely convinced that this is the place for you!
