Ocean Front Del Mar Homes Make Great Racetrack Rentals

Ocean Front Del Mar Homes Make Great Racetrack Rentals

Del Mar Racetrack's 69th Season Livens up Del Mar's Rental Market

Del Mar Racetrack's 69th Season Livens up Del Mar's Rental Market

July 16th kicked off the 69th season of the Del Mar Races with an opening day filled with the same amount of pizzazz and extravagancy as always. Del Mar, buzzing with the race track vibes, is now filled with all the usual pomp and pageantry spectators expect when they go "Where the Turf Meets the Surf." 

An ideal time for locals to head out of town, however, or put their second home to use, as the value of San Diego rentals, specifically ocean front Del Mar homes, more than double in value when out of towners come to Del Mar for racetrack enjoyment. Ocean front Del Mar rentals are ideal for any and all racetrack attendees as they offer a great beach location while being five minutes or less away from the Del Mar Racetrack.  

Consider the value of owning a ocean front Del Mar home to rent out for race season, and enjoy the races!
