The data you reported is coming from your county records, because of this I am unable to edit the information. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and if correct with your county, it will be updated on Trulia when the updated data gets sent to us. My best recommendation would be to contact your county to ensure that the public records are up to date.

If the county records are correct and Trulia has not received the updated data yet, owners have the ability to edit their home facts on Trulia which appear in the 'Owner Information' section. Please know that edit home facts feature is currently removed from the property pages while we improve the feature. While we do not have a specific date for when they will be available, I can assure you this is only temporary. We thank you for your patience.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Trulia moved most of the reviews over to Zillow (Zillow owns trulia) -

So...........Trulia no longer has a review section for agents.

If you want to leave your agent a review, you will have to visit and leave the review there. ... more

Without knowing your current pay structure, it's difficult to say.
If you work on commission, then you should earn a commission.
If you are paid a salary plus a bonus, then a small bonus might kick in.
If you are salaried, then it's just part of the job.

Whichever of these it is, speak up if you feel you are being treated unfairly.
Just as you found this broker...there are others!

Nancy Bergman answered:
I tell all my sellers of rentals - please give a heads up to the tenants that the landlord is selling the property. Its the right thing to do.
With that said, depending how the contract was written, you may get to stay in the property with the new owners as your new landlord, you may have 30 days or 60 days depending how long you have been in the property. I would simply call the owners and ask!!!

Most information from Trulia is uploaded from the MLS and the MLS uploads from tax records. If there are home improvements done without permits, then it doesn't reach the tax records. It is always important to check out the reasons for discrepancies on this types of conflict, as it should be disclosed to buyers whether work was done with permits. ... more

You can try calling around to the main property managers and see if they would entertain that option. I would suggest Mission Sands, San Diego Sunset, 710Br, SDVR and see what they recommend. Trevor Pike Coldwell Banker PB ~ Chris Love Office ... more

Hi , my stove was not working called the manager said do we have entry
to your apartment i said yes five days had gone by no stove was fixed .
I had to call and inquire she said we had emergency sorry we could not fix it .
said monday someone will be there in the process of them coming out to my apartment it took three
days for the stove to be fixed but then my oven stopped working, I had to call again she said do i have a right of entry i said yes but she never states when their coming into my home what day or time
so they just pop up when they feel like it . But in the process the maintenance man when he had came over for the three days my daughter was visiting for a few days the maintenance man took upon him self to report that some female was coming out of the guest bedroom and was there every time he was there so the manager asked me if someone or a woman was living here by the name Jasimine i have no idea who that person is , I said to the manager i have a right to have family or friends come to my home if they want to spend the night the can do so , she said well if someone else is living there you a violating
your tenant lease agreement they can only stay 5 days i was informed when i moved in they can not stay more then 9 days , I said no one lives here and that was the end of the conversation but they have been finding ways to harass me they also raised my rent two hundred dollars when my boyfriend had moved in when i adding him to the lease they said he cant be on the lease only as a guest because he does not have garnishable income since he is on social security so your rent it going up $200 hundred dollars if he is going to be living here? is that legal in the state of california in san diego.?

Daniel: There is a lot of good information from everyone below, and would also agree, with most, that Pacific Beach is one of the best beach cities to live in San Diego. I am a born and raised San Diegan, and PB has so much to offer, especially North PB, and your quality of life will continue to grow living an active beach lifestyle, never driving on the weekends and plenty of great people in PB. Like any town, there are some bad apples here and there, and HOT crime (theft, windows a jar, cars unlocked, etc) has been prevalent in all areas of San Diego over the last year. 92109 is a great area, and why buyers/tourists keep investing and coming back year after year. Let me know if you have any other questions. ... more

Alan Kurpiewski answered:
Just to clarify on the security deposit...

See page 25 on the CA Tenants renters book -

The owner/landlord can require you to pay a security deposit equal to TWO MONTHS rent for an unfurnished unit (two-and-a-half if you have a waterbed), and a security deposit equal to THREE MONTHS rent for a furnished unit (three-and-a-half with waterbed). This would be IN ADDITION to first month's rent.

SO, while the landlord is requesting 1st and Last month's rent, plus a security deposit equal to one month's rent, this IS allowed so long as the contract states you are paying FIRST MONTH'S rent plus a security deposit equal to TWO MONTHS rent. It's all in the language of the contract...

As far as the condition, I echo what has been said before me. Be concerned if the landlord refuses to make the unit "satisfactory" up front, because it's only going to get worse. Also, if you do decide to move in regardless, DOCUMENT EVERYTHING on move in. Don't make it into "he said, she said" when you are having to go to court to get your security deposit back.

Good luck!!

Check Crime stats at and School Stats at because in many cases in coastal SD you get what you pay for and the condos are priced accordingly.

$7,500 per month positive cash flow 4 months out of the year, $1200 positive cash flow the remaining 12 months, NET after all expenses, on a $2200 mortgage pmt with 20% down...

4 months pays the entire expenses of the property in 4 months, try to accomplish that with a standard rental in SD. It cash flows with 0% down, it also cash flows with equity cash out....

Short term vacations rentals in the right areas can be extremely profitable.

I think you answered that, because all of the agencies FNMA, Freddie and FHA will stop lending on the association if the the number of rentals goes too high. This will then destroy your resale value. ... more
