It vastly depends on where you are looking to live. Often time, in the city of San Diego, you truly get what you pay for. Have you considered purchasing? Only reason I ask this is because you can oftentimes get a mortgage loan for the same amount, if not less, than what you are paying for in rent. I recommend contacting lenders and Loan Officers (as myself) for projections. Therefore, if you want to see how much you could save, please do not hesitate to contact me. I wish you the best of luck in finding a place.
