I am looking to buy my first condo. I mainly don't want to lose money but would not mind insight as to what area you think would appreciate the most.

City Heights?

Talmadge?

I want Mission Valley but I think I will lose money if I buy in Mission Valley.

I will appreciate any input.

Thanks

IMO OceanSide.

Anyway just my opinion.

Chula Vista/SSD?

I dunno about "most" or "5-10 years" but I think Clairmont has very good long-term prospects, particularly the mountain streets. Older houses, true, but large lots, and very centrally located.

I would say for a condo you want walk-able neighborhood, close to transit lines (maybe not for you, but when you sell it is a selling point), close to shopping, so Mission Valley might be a good call. If there is ever a tsunami in San Diego I would not want to be living in Mission Valley. Chance of tsunami is so remote I would probably just forget about that possibility.

For condo, I think Mira Mesa because of proximity to UTC and the tech hub.

Or the college area near sdsu.

Or maybe city heights will become the next North Park. But that's going to be a couple cycles away.

This trolley extension might help West UTC, West Clairemont and East PB. Shame they cannot extend past UCSD into Mira Mesa.

That is in the plan: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Diego_.... The plan has a trolley station at the new Stone Creek development.

Also consider Grantville, east of mission valley. The area is slated for redevelopment.

A few cycles away can be a lot longer than most people think. North Park was "a few cycles away" for a long time. Decades. I have a friend who bought the building his business was in, on Univ ave, hoping that redevelopment would come. Newberry's left the area. REI came and went. He finally sold the building 10 years after he retired, and made a 50% profit. That was in 2012. He bought the building in 1981.
