Del Mar homes are located just north of the Los Penasquitos Lagoon, just south of the San Dieguito River Lagoon and Scripps Bluff Preserve, and 20 miles north of San Diego. Del Mar is home to two miles of unique shopping, beaches, and gourmet dining.

The city continues that reputation today, as do the residents, with Del Mar homes being in the upper tier of home ownership. Del Mar homes are set in a prime tourist location, as are most waterfront towns, and the city boasts excellent surfing, beaches and parks, and fairgrounds that host the famous Del Mar horseracing track. Del Mar has an approximate population of 4,543, with an approximately equal distribution of males and females, with an estimated median household income of $120,966, and an estimated median house or condo value of $808,870. Del Mar is such a spectacular town that it was mentioned in Time magazine’s “100 greatest beaches in the world,” specifying 15th Street Beach as #4. Del Mar was referenced in the Beach Boys hit “Surfin USA” and has been home to such notable residents as Desi Arnaz, Burt Bacharach, and Tony Robbins.
