Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any way to find out who owns a property?
The County of San Diego Assessor's Office can provide information about any parcel of land located within the County of San Diego. The office can also be reached at 619-236-3771. Properties owned by the City of San Diego can be viewed at the Map of City-owned Land.

Can you refer me to a real estate broker, property manager, appraiser, escrow company or title company ?
We do not have that type of information. You may want to consult an organization like the Better Business Bureau or the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS®.

How do I go about getting or renewing a Real Estate License?
Contact the California Department of Real Estate at 619-525-4192 for any question related to obtaining or renewing a Real Estate License.

How do I find out if a property is currently for sale or lease?
The Property for Sale or Lease page contains information about properties owned by the City of San Diego that are currently for sale or lease. Local newspapers and many web sites also advertise properties for sale or lease in the San Diego region.

I am thinking of moving to San Diego, can you provide me with any information?

How do I find out how to acquire land for affordable housing development?
Effective January 1, 2020, Local agencies (including Cities, Counties, and Special Districts) must sent surplus land notifications to the California Department of Housing & Community Development (“HCD”) for listing on HCD's website.

Developers interested in purchasing or leasing surplus land for affordable housing development should notify HCD of their interest by completing HCD's Developer Interest - Local Agency Surplus Land survey.

Beginning January 1, 2020, HCD will post the list of interested developers on the HCD website and will update the list as more developers express interest.
