El Cajon, CA Real Estate

El Cajon is a large city 20 miles east of San Diego and comprises much of the East County. While many San Diego residents flock to the coast, others enjoy the hiking and biking options available the area’s peaks and valleys.

El Cajon real estate features every type of home out there including manufactured homes, condos, entry level houses, and luxury homes on lots of acreage. With a wide array of neighborhoods, home prices vary substantially.
