What should I know if I’m looking to rent in San Diego?

If you are looking to rent, San Diego offers some great options. You can choose an apartment downtown or you can pick a spot outside the city and opt for a more suburban or rural atmosphere. If you can narrow down your search from the start, it will help cut down on the time you spend looking for a place. Downtown living means easy access to a myriad of dining, entertainment and nightlife options. Living outside the city offers more of a quiet feel, along with a feeling of more space. If you feel drawn to one or the other, you will know where to look for rentals.

Cost can be another factor. If you can’t afford to live in downtown San Diego, make sure the suburbs you look at have good transportation so you can get to the heart of the city in a short time. Those who want to live near the coast may have to opt for something more inland if the cost is prohibitive. The key to finding the right rental is to look for places that cost less but still have proximity to the water or city. If you want to live somewhere quiet, take a look at smaller towns such as Fallbrook or Vista, and if you want luxury, check out Del Mar or Coronado. There are some good choices around in the area, and if you have an idea of what you like, finding a rental to match shouldn’t be too difficult.
