Realtor Insight – 4432 Via Amable, San Diego CA 92122
Today I toured 4432 Via Amable, San Diego CA 92122. Built in 1981, this townhome is part of the Vista La Jolla Townhomes community and represents the Walnut floorplan. The listing is quoting 1,716 square feet of livable space but I believe it’s actually closer to 1,657 square feet.
There were certainly some remnants of the 1980s on display, but overall the home was clean and move-in ready, with new carpeting and paint throughout. The highlights included the large functional kitchen, a wet bar for entertaining, the very tall vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom and the attached garage with epoxy flooring. I really liked the large skylight on the 2nd floor above the stairway. This brought in lots of golden sunlight into that central area of the home.
Some of the downsides to this unit include the absence of a separate dining room from the kitchen nook, small living room, the out-dated tile work in the bathrooms, the very small backyard patio that abuts the community pool area, and the lack of a front driveway for parking. With a list price of $659,000 I think that is a bit aggressive for this particular property and community. I’d peg 443 Via Amable in the low low 600s. Comparing this home to the Los Robles floorplan in the Barcelona community, which sell in the same price point, I’d take the Barcelona home any day.

All in all, I think this home is priced way over market, particularly for it’s condition. Wait a few weeks and watch the asking price to fall!
