I did a rental survey in that area this past Feb. for a client and it seems about right. $2100 to $2750, depending on amenities, how the utilities are split with the landlord, the size of the home, etc...

The price is in the range of what homes rent for in Rancho Bernardo. It does depend upon the other variables already mentioned. (Pets, Type of Home (Detached or Attached) - Single Family or Condo, Neighborhood, square footage of home, condition, age, ammenities, etc..)

REALTORS can provide rental comparables for you as a reference, but they will only reflect rentals that are listed in the MLS. You can also check Craig's List as a secondary source.

Hi Anthony,

As everyone has stated, it depends? On the area, whether it is in a complex with amenities such as a pool, etc. Also the condition of the property and the interior amenities.

Best of luck,

Hi Anthony,

If you were to buy instead of rent, your mortgage payment could be very close to that. But, instead of paying a landlord, you could get tax benefits and build equity. If you need help getting qualified, or have issues with your credit that is keeping you from getting qualified, give me call call and I can help you for free

Every landlord will get what the market will bear....I usually get an idea of 'typical' rentals by going onto San Diego Craigslist - in the rental section. Type in townhome and Rancho Bernardo and then see what kinds of price ranges come up!

Hi Anthony,
Does the rental allow for pets? Is the lease month to month? There are always variables involved that move the rent up or down. Just curious where were you living before R.B.? Best Wishes,

It depends on the size, condition and amenities included. I'd say it's on the high side depending on the specific complex and what they offer. It's not necessarily out of the question that they could get that if its large, upgraded and offers a view, and excellent community features.
