Some new residents of the metro San Diego, CA area who might be considering Coronado real estate can now make the journey over the graceful, sweeping blue 2.12 mile Coronado Bridge to their destination if they are in search of some Coronado island homes for sale. However that bridge wasn't always a "commute or resident parachute" to Coronado. Back in the 1950's that trip from San Diego to Coronado required that you use one of the hourly "car ferries" unless you drove south to Imperial Beach and the Mexico border, then doubled back on the two-lane Strand highway to downtown Coronado. But even then on that roundabout trip, you could find some older, lovely Coronado homes for sale, many priced under $60,000. Alas, those prices for Coronado real estate no longer exist. With the Coronado Navy Base where Seals are trained, plus the North Island Naval Air station, Coronado island homes for sale are in great demand.
One item that makes Coronado homes for sale unique in the older downtown area is the mildly curvy streets that wind their way down to the sandy beaches all within a short, easy stroll while walking your dog or just checking out other available Coronado real estate of interest. If you're considering Coronado homes for sale, it might be wise to make a list of what you can afford as well as other amenities and features you desire like the locations of shopping, schools, churches, business commute to San Diego or National City via the Strand or local neighborhood parks that provide entertainment for the young toddlers. Coronado Island homes for sale offers many choices in terms of size and pricing. Whether it's a single family, a Coronado townhome or condo; perhaps even a Row home or Co-Op or a new manufactured home development, old or new, two bedrooms to four bedrooms, your Coronado real estate perfect home of your dreams can be found and is waiting for your inspection on Coronado Island. One thing though to take into consideration in your Coronado homes for sale searching is that the available properties that contain anywhere from five to eight bedrooms and other high-dollar amenities will be a bit costly. So make sure you know your budget constraints in choosing any Coronado island homes for sale.
