There are some agents and real estate offices which will help tenants find properties. However, there is little to no money in it for the agent and it is time consuming. You can start by contacting the listing agent for any rental you find at and see if they can help you.
Craigslist is still the biggest source of rentals around here, but you don't know if you are dealing with an agent, owner, or scammer so you have to tread carefully.

Absolutely there is someone that can help. You need FBS. Rentals are what we do. Rentals are all we do. Rentals are who we are in San Diego for more than 4 decades. We currently operate rental properties in 69 zip codes throughout the region. We have become the best center for resources essential to renters by choice as well as independent rental owners. We bring industry Best Practices to both. I appreciate the nearly 13,000 Trulia visitors that keep up with my profile as well as the 173,000 that follow Neil Fjellestad's blog. However, my perspective is only one thing that makes FBS the industry leader it is. Our unsurpassed team, our systematic approach to leasing & rendering service to our renters, our daily incorporating technologies that others are just talking about are all reasons for our leadership. But our leadership only matters when it matters to you. First, visit our educational blog website Then it is on to our virtual office (we have a full site and a mobile site for those that visit from a smart phone or pad) to understand how easy we are to work with by giving you a place to view available rental homes; apply on line; pay rent online and communicate maintenance concerns. Finally, contact one of our Rental Centers. For rental homes located north of 52 we have a North County Office. 858-487-4004. For the homes south of 52 there is our Metro Office 619-286-7600.

Hi Chris,

We suggest you take Tony's advice when considering a "rental agent". 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 property 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 if needed. There is also a pull down menu for the type of property you are seeking (apartment, house, etc) Check often and call/e-mail right away as many rentals move quickly.

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 in order to see the property. The "owner" usually states they live out of state or out of the country. Other scams involve people stealing pictures from homes for sale and then posting it as a rental with a low rental rate.

Best of luck to you,
