That questions is hard to answer without knowing what you are looking for in a home. Do you want to be in a specific part of town because of work or schools? Do yo need to be close to freeways or public transportation?
One handy tool is the website http://www.yoursdps.info there you can search for homes and find some that meet your needs. Then you can check a couple of websites like: http://mapping.arjis.org for crime stats and http://www.meganslaw.com for sex offender registration. I recommend these sites to all of my clients.
San Diego is not considered a high crime city but there may be areas that are more attractive than others for you. The price range that you are looking should be able to provide you with a lot of options for housing.
Let me know if there is any way that I may be able to help you.

Your budget is actually pretty average and you will have wide range of options from condos/townhouses to single houses. To give you a better idea of housing since you probably lost in zipcodes and lots of areas your $300k can get you a decent house approx 1500sf somewhere central 10-15 min from downtown either way, or a larger townhouse in the same areas. If you will go to more valuable/reputable areas closer to beaches or upscale inland then it would be a condo but little smaller.
It should take you one FULL day with me to pinpoint the right area for you and completely understand the current market!!
This is the right time to buy and find BEST deal within all bank owned and shortsales!
Looking forward to help you settle in sd!
In the coastal communities of Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Cardiff & Solana Beach, there are many safe neighborhoods with attached homes in this price range.
The best thing to do is to make a connection with a couple of Realtors, talk with them and find the one you like the best. Use their knowledge as a guide.
Also, different people have different ideas of what "safe" is, so that is another discussion. Crime stats are available online.

That is a wide open question and can be approached in many ways. First off, you may wish to go to the following link for crime stats by neighborhood http://www.sandiego.gov/police/stats/. Are you looking for a single family detached home, or a condo/townhome? This will have a direct affect on what you will be able to afford and what neighborhood will be appropriate for you. I'm sure that you will find most people who answer on here will direct you to an area in which they know best, which makes sense. Given that, I have grown up and lived in North County Inland for a large part of my life and can vouch for Poway (92064) and Rancho Bernardo (92128/92127) as being great neighborhoods, with low crime levels and an unparalleled school district. Of course, there are several great areas throughout San Diego and it's really a matter of what is important to you. Do you prefer the coast or inland, downtown or the suburbs? No matter what you end up deciding, I'd strongly encourage you to speak to neighbors in the area to get their insight on the pros and cons of the area. Also, make sure you try driving (do your work commute if applicable) at different times of the day as traffic can be an issue in certain areas.
Bottom line is San Diego is called America's Finest City for a reason and there are many different neighborhoods that appeal to people due to a host of factors. Being born and raised here and working in the residential sector, I can definitely offer you more insight. Also, feel free to clink on the link below to search for properties that meet your parameters. Of course, you will want to work with someone who is willing to take you to different neighborhoods and make sure all your needs are addressed.
Best of luck and welcome to San Diego.
