That's not a particularly nice property. It's smack dab in the middle of one of the most busy arteries in San Diego, and becomes a logjam during the summer. I believe the HOA's for those condos are around 450 per month as I remember.

It is close to the beach though...

without knowing any figures or what you put in, i'm more inclined to ask, what are wrong with your figures? =)

The NY Times calculator probably assigns a high % of annual appreciation by default. Try changing it to something realistic, like a rate of depreciation. But good luck, I've seen calculators out there that won't even accept the possibility of a negative appreciation rate.
