If now is the right time for you or someone you know to make a San Elijo Hills move, please let me know! I have many buyers looking for homes and little inventory to show them. If you’re planning to buy a home this year, it’s still a great time to get in the marketplace because interest rates are still comparatively low. Let’s discuss how I can help you achieve your goals in the current market conditions, whether that’s buying or selling!
As always, the referral of your friends and family is the highest compliment I can receive!
Housing and business stock are on the rise, and there’s still plenty of potential for growth
In recent years, San Marcos has seen household incomes grow and the already low unemployment rate fall. At the same time, the city is home to high-paying industries and universities that are a pipeline for regional talent.
Those are among the takeaways of a recently released City of San Marcos Regional Profile, which demonstrates with comprehensive data sets the city’s momentum in key economic and education areas.
The regional profile encompasses four sections: demographics, socioeconomics, the housing market and the economy, with major findings that include:
Household income grew by 8.9 percent each year from 2011 to 2015, greatly outpacing the region’s rate of 1.4 percent;
The unemployment rate of 2.9 percent continues to be low, and historical unemployment data show the city weathered the Great Recession better than the region, state and nation;
San Marcos boasts 4,000 businesses, up 10 percent from a decade ago. Local firms’ resiliency in the face of the Great Recession has been a key to San Marcos’ status as an economic powerhouse;
As North County’s education hub, San Marcos produces 10 percent of the San Diego region’s total academic program completions, with the lion’s share coming from Cal State San Marcos and Palomar College;
Higher-than-average median wages can be found in three high-paying industries: manufacturing, wholesale trade and information; and
Between 2010 and 2015 housing stock grew by 10.1 percent—San Marcos has more opportunities for development than other regional cities.
“The numbers in the regional profile tell the story: San Marcos’ growing reputation as a great place to live, work and play is well deserved. Not only do we have 40,000 jobs, an annual GDP totaling $7.9 billion and stellar educational institutions, but the community also boasts 72 miles of multi-use trails, 300 acres of park space, 240 restaurants and eight breweries,” said Economic Development Manager Tess Radmill.
As for the work piece of that trio, the City bolstered its business-friendly reputation through proactive economic development, which in 2012 the City Council prioritized in response to the tough economy and the end of redevelopment funding. City efforts thus far have included cutting red tape from the development approval process and there is recognition that there is room for more improvement.
Also part of this commitment to improving business is the regional profile itself, the City’s first such snapshot that will shape future economic development initiatives.
“This profile provides clarity and insight into San Marcos’ regional strengths, in addition to identifying the fundamental drivers of the local economy,” said Kirby Brady, the San Diego Regional EDC’s Director of Research. “It is clear that the city is an economic powerhouse with a diverse economic base, a highly-educated and talented workforce, and opportunities for growth.”

Stumblefoot Brewing Company isn’t new — it’s been making beer in southwest San Marcos since 2012. However, it’s not exactly the same company anymore. In January, the business changed hands, when founding owner Bill Randolph sold the brewery outright to Cameron Rentch and Cory Schmelzer.
“We’re both locals,” says Rentch. The two friends live in the nearby community of San Elijo Hills. While he and Schmelzer were born in the same northern Virginia hospital just a year apart, they didn’t meet until seven years ago, when they found themselves living in the same community, with children around the same age, and a shared interest in extreme distance running — and opening a craft brewery.”We were originally hoping to do a new brewery inside San Elijo Hills,” Rentsch goes on to say, though they quickly learned zoning made that impossible. “Right about that same time, after really pushing through that, we found out that Bill might be interested in exiting. The timing just really worked out for everybody.” READ MORE via Source: What’s brewing at Stumblefoot? | San Diego Reader
