“North County” is a general term referring to communities generally in the northern half of the County. 50 or so years ago, there was little development south of Escondidio and Rancho Bernardo inland from the coast. Gradually the area south of Escondido developed and now is almost continuous south of these communities.
While North County Associated Brokers can represent you anywhere in the County or even north into Riverside County, we generally consider North County as including the communities listed below.
For our purposes of giving you general information on the area, it is probably most helpful to you in your “search” for the ideal community to look at North County in relation to its climate, so we have listed the communities in four zones: “COASTAL“, “NEAR COASTAL“, “INLAND” and “MOUNTAIN” based on climate.
