Where in San Diego can I buy a house that can rent out easily?
For that price point on a single family house you probably won't be in a prime rental area. But you could do OK in South County and East County.

What are ways to increase credit scores? We are >680 but believe that's not competitive enough to get a great interest rate.
Your rate with a 680 will be the same as someone with a 720, you will just have higher closing costs due to the fact it costs more points to get you the same rate.
