While I may empathize with your situation, this is probably not the most effective way to find a rental. I suggest looking at craigslist for up to date rentals. I would just call on each one the interests you.
Your money might go farther if you search inland instead of the beach areas...best wishes.... more
t is never to early to start exploring your new city. I can certainly set you up for a search of rentals in the neighborhood to give you an idea of the average rental fees. Feel free to email or call. Good luck on your move. Don't miss the San Diego Zoo. It has to be one of the best in the country.
