Fjellestad of FBS in 92123 Quotes RE Experts to Emphasize Urgency & Necessity to become a Rental Owner in San Diego County

FBS has over four
decades of real estate experience. This experience and expertise gives
us a unique perspective which is straightforward, direct and
transparent. Well located real estate should be owned as a long term
investment since it is the safest, most productive method for average
people to build wealth. We also believe that property should be kept
rented in order to make long term ownership possible since rent
collected is helping to keep the property well maintained and paying
down loan principal. Eventually the property will be debt free and the
rent can become an excellent safe source of additional retirement income
for the investor. We have taught and utilized this realistic “real
estate doctrine” for decades while keeping our clients on track with

Rents to jump over next five years
By Jonathan Horn


the next five years, rents in San Diego County are expected to rise
almost twice as fast as they did in the preceding decade, according to
projections by CBRE.

From 2004 to 2014, the average rent in San Diego County rose from
$1,242 to $1,542 per month, a 24 percent increase. By 2019, the average
rent is expected to hit $1,830 per month, 19 percent more than the
current average, said Dixie Hall, a CBRE apartment specialist.

“If we weren’t under supplied, we’d have much higher vacancy and we
wouldn’t be seeing the rent raises that we are,” Hall said. “And we
wouldn’t be seeing people paying $2,000 for a one bedroom.”

Speaking to about 200 people at a panel held Thursday by the San
Diego County Apartment Association and the Certified Commercial
Investment Member San Diego chapter, Hall said demand for rentals has
increased because of three major factors: millenials are moving out of
their parents’ homes, previous homeowners now choose to rent, and others
still have credit issues from the Great Recession and can’t qualify for
a mortgage.

The vacancy rate in San Diego County is about 3.7 percent, below a
stable market, which would have vacancies around 5 percent, said
moderator Robert Vallera, senior vice president of VOIT real-estate
services. Another report, released Thursday by Cassidy Turley,
calculated San Diego County’s vacancy rate as 2.6 percent, second lowest
in the nation after San Jose.

CBRE reports that it is tracking 8,600 new units under construction,
with 1,600 of them downtown. That’s where most of the demand for new
units exists, said Peter Burley, who directs the Rosenthal Center for
Real Estate Studies of Chicago.

“The millenials are distinctly urban, preferring public
transportation, walkable neighborhoods, flexible work environments and
easy access to social interaction,” he said. “They don’t drive.”

Hall said the new units being built, while expensive, are highly
amenitized, with fire pits, pool decks, barbecues, large gyms and
clubhouses. “You would want to live in these properties,” she said.
“Residents today want to socialize, they want to be outside, they don’t
want to be trapped in their apartment.”

Marco Sessa, senior vice president of Sudberry Properties, in charge
of the expansive Civita mixed-use community in Mission Valley, said
developers have a hard time responding to the demand for more units.

“It’s almost impossible to get things approved and it takes a very
long time,” he said. “Unfortunately even with the amount of deliveries
that are expected in the next few years, it is by far the demand exceeds
the supply, not because we don’t want to build it but because it’s very
difficult to get those projects actually out of the ground.”
