Relocating to San Diego Labor Day Weekend. Will be in San Diego in mid August to look for a rental. Would love a small home 2/3 bedroom 1/1.5 baths.

Asked by Molly Eichenberger, San Diego, CA Sat Aug 3, 2013

Three small animals (2 outside cats/1 5 lb tea cup Yorkie) Need a yard for the critters. Semi retired couple on limited budget so we are open to looking anywhere in the area for a home. Would love to set up some showings while we're in town.

Health issues so need single level home.

Great! Click the link in the web reference below to see the list of homes available. Some aren't single story, sorry I cant sort like that. However, there are pictures with every ad so you will be able to tell quickly if the home will fit your needs or not.

Hi Molly,

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

The best way to search is to put the zip code in the search box and then enter the rest of your parameters. Check often and call/e-mail right away as many rentals move quickly!

Lastly, 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 prior to seeing the property or filling out a rental application. The "owner" usually states they live out of state or out of the country. Other scams involve people stealing pictures off homes for sale with a low rental rate. That is usually when they ask for the deposit up front.

Best of luck to you,

Mark & Kari Shea

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 12,000 Trulia visitors that keep up with my profile as well as the 83,000 that follow Neil Fjellestad's blog.
