Are you searching for a San Diego single story home for sale? Whether you are a baby boomer, in the sandwich generation (with elder parents while raising a family), a millennial with a family or thinking of the future, a single story home could be a smart choice.
A single-story home or home on one level offers numerous benefits for those who want to enjoy a comfortable and convenient lifestyle.
Here are the top 10 reasons to buy a single story home in San Diego County:
San Diego single story homes for sale provide the convenience of having all your living spaces on one level, which means no more climbing up and down stairs. There is no need to carry heavy and bulky laundry up or down the stairs!
2. Easy Maintenance
Single story ranch homes in San Diego County are easier to maintain, which means less time spent cleaning and more time spent enjoying your home. And not having to get on a ladder for painting, window or rain gutter cleaning and other exterior chores can be a life-saver.
San Diego single-story homes whether located in 55+ communities or single story homes in all ages communities in San Diego County are the perfect choice for those with mobility issues, as they provide easy accessibility.
Single story detached homes typically have a wider foot print, with slightly larger lots, and depending on location may provide more privacy, as they allow you to avoid having to deal with noise from neighbors or passersby.
5. Energy Efficiency
San Diego single-story homes are more energy-efficient than multi-level homes, as they require less energy to heat and cool. As temperatures rise, it is much cooler to be downstairs than upstairs, as warm air rises, and cold air tends to sink.
Single story homes in San Diego are considered safer, as they eliminate the risk of falling down stairs and reduce the risk of accidents. Also in the unfortunate instance of an emergency, every large window in a single story home represents a potential escape route.
San Diego single-story homes are perfect for families with young children and multi-generational households with seniors, as they provide a safer and more secure environment.
8. Aging in Place
San Diego single-story homes are perfect for those who want to age in place, as they provide a safe and accessible environment as you get older. Not being forced to move out of a 2 story home sometime in the future or having to renovate a home by adding stair lift, elevator, or adding a bedroom/ bathroom downstairs will help save you money, time, and effort. Plus the comfort of knowing that you can remain in your well-loved, familiar home can relieve a lot of stress and concern about your future.
San Diego single-story homes with ocean views or luxury single-story homes offer a great space to entertain or host gatherings, as they provide a more open and spacious environment.
10. Resale Value
San Diego single-story homes for sale are highly sought after, which means they can have a higher resale value compared to multi-level homes.
Why are single level homes in San Diego County valuable?
One of the reasons why single-story homes are highly sought after in San Diego County is because of the demand for these types of homes by the baby boomer generation. As baby boomers age, they are looking for homes that are more accessible and easier to maintain, which makes single story homes the perfect choice.
On the inventory side, you’ll notice that new home construction in San Diego County are usually dominated by 2 story homes or high density condos with 2 to 3 stories as builders maximize valuable land space. Sometimes builders will sprinkle in a few ranch homes but two story homes usually the norm in these new neighborhoods, unless they are homes in new 55+ communities.
So with less inventory of new one story homes for sale in San Diego County, and an increasing demand, you can understand how single story homes can be more valuable.
Of course, there are disadvantages to single story homes as well but it’s all a matter of personal preference.
