Hat tip to Eliana for sending this in!

Back in July 1978 the average home price in San Diego was $73,000. That may sound inexpensive but that was still $22,000 higher than the national average at the time! La Jolla was much higher and you couldn’t find much for under $150,000. Scripps Ranch average was between $90,000-$100,000, Mira Mesa ranged between $55,000-$100,000, and the newer community of Rancho Penasquitos average was $75,000. Chula Vista had some good buys and Imperial Beach averaged about the same as the city of San Diego. In this three part series, Dave Cohen interviews century 21 realtor Jay Meetze on the housing market in the summer of ’78.
