Hi Wendi,

When looking for rentals, we have found that Craigslist is your best option. 85% to 95% of all rentals leased in San Diego County are found using Craigslist. It is used to advertise rentals by owners, property management companies and agents alike.

Start by putting your preferred zip code in the search box and then enter the rest of your requirements, including the check boxes for pets. Check often and call/e-mail right away as many rentals move quickly!

Lastly, beware of rental scam listings and ads that "look too good to be true”. Make sure you talk to the person managing the property and meet them to see it. Scams usually involve people asking for a deposit prior to seeing the property or filling out a rental application. The "owner" usually states they live out of state or out of the country. Other scams involve people stealing pictures off homes for sale with a low rental rate. That is usually when they ask for the deposit up front.

Best of luck to you,

GMcclung1379,

As you can see the other websites don't have the up to date information as we Realtors because we have direct access to the Multiple Listing Service with real time information (most of the time). I would love to work with you and find you a property, here is my process:
1. Get you PreApproved or your letter of preapproval
2. Look for properties that are within your approval amount
3. Write offer
4. Follow terms of the contract
5. Give you keys

It this sounds simple enough, contact me. Thanks
