Anyone know anything about Ramona, California? I’m being transferred to MCAS Miramar and looking for a house. Freaking 3br houses are STARTING at $500,000 in SD and the surrounding area. Found Ramona, about 20 miles east of the base, with some more reasonable priced houses. The wife and I are going out there the beginning of April to house-hunt.
Any comments on Ramona?
Yes…Did they Triple your pay to relocate to SD from Georgia?
No. Not even close. Pay stays the same, but housing allowance went up about $1000. In SD for my rank, housing allowance is about $2200/month, which will RENT you a decent 3br, 2ba house. My max purchace price is in the $350,000-$375,000 range, which will get you a 2br, 1ba condo.
Ramona is the only place that we MIGHT be able to buy. For rentals we are looking at Poway, Escondido and Oceanside (good school districts).
