Hello Wayne_lane, it will vary depending on what scale and upgrades you are intending. Did you have some damage that is covered by insurance and if so they will do the calculations.

If you want to remodel your home you may consider the 203k loan program which you would have a cost coordinator to assist you.

Every rental is different. Some landlords will include it and some will not.
If it is not included and if you are in a market where rentals are plentiful, you may be able to negotiate with the landlord to have it included if it isnt already. ... more

It depends on the quality of your product, as well as the quality of your pricing. Well priced homes go into escrow within one week.

Hi Joe,

When looking for rentals, your best bet is Craigslist. 85% to 95% of all rentals leased in San Diego County are fulfilled using Craigslist. It is used by owners, property management companies and agents.

The easiest way to search is put a zip code in the search box and then enter the rest of your parameters. Check often and call right away as most rentals move quickly!

Lastly, beware of rental scam listings. Make sure you talk to the person managing the property and meet them to see it. Get an application to fill out and read over the lease agreement.

Best of luck to you,

I think you have some great answers already, and I agree with what has been said. Of course, it is all about location, but here in San Diego not all beach communities are equal either. Oceanside is a great example of a beach town where you can likely find attached properties near the beach for under $500,000. Oceanside has undergone a revitalization in the last decade, and continues to grow and get better. Right next door in Olde Carlsbad you also can find attached homes that are under $500,000. Here you will be able to walk not only to the beach, but into Carlsbad Village, where there is fantastic dining, shopping, etc. If you or your clients have the time you will find some deals in either of these places! No need to put on your hiking boots unless you are looking in some of the pricier communities, like La Jolla or Del Mar.
