Is there a website that can help me get a rough estimate of rent average by neighborhood?

Hey Rick,

I usually use Rentometer.com or Zilpy.com to find rents and then cross reference them with a CMA from the MLS. You could also look on Craigslist and see what other people are renting out similar homes for. If you need a CMA let me know. Contact me at 760-583-2735 or go to http://MikeKnowsSanDiego.com

I kind of like the site RentoMeter (http://www.rentometer.com). You plug in an address, number of bedrooms, and (because of the way it works) the rent you're paying, and it tells you the range of rents for the area, and whether your rent is too high or low.

It's not perfect, and any numbers should be verified by a CMA from a Realtor (you can do CMAs on rentals, too). But I've found it actually gives a pretty good answer most of the time.

Hope that helps.

I'm sure you've found the answer to your question by now - since you first posted this several months ago. But for future users, I strongly second Scott Schroeder's suggestion to use Craigslist as a real-time, no frills resource in determining local rents. With a little investment of time both Landlords and Tenants can learn a lot about their local market via Craigslist activity.

The web sites that the other realtors have listed are good. Another resource is Craigslist.com. I find that most people with properties for rent are posting to Craigs, and it takes just a few minutes to identify the sort of property you want, and compare pricing.

As a general rule, the bigger the house, the lower rent per square foot. In other words, a 1400 sq ft will rent for more per square foot than a 3200 sq ft house.

Best of luck to you!

Rick....you can find average rents by zip code on the Redfin site. If you want neighborhood specific information, your agent can run reports directly out of the San Diego Multiple Listing Service or can set you up with a web-based account that you can use to access more specific information.
