Hello Ken, the 1bd 1ba apt start from $1,825 month rent in 90803 zip, from $2,200 for 1bd 1ba condo with 7th floor ocean view and up. The purchase start from 348k for a large 737 sf studio condo on the marina.
You may qualify to buy with less than first, last and security deposit with down payment and closing cost assistance programs and pay about the same payment as rent. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare and decide.
How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve? Are there any other cities you are considering?
If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.
