Hello Angella, have you heard of the Homes for Heroes San Diego program? It is a local organization and works directly with all service members, firefighters, police, nurses, and doctors just to name a few. Their Real Estate Agent contact would be Johnny Perez, and I am the primary Mortgage Lender, we have done more than 6 transactions for service members just this year.

The rentals in Carmel Mountain start from $1,650 for 1bd 1ba apt, $1,960 for 2bd 1ba apt and the single family homes start from $2,600 for 3bd 3ba home.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

If you decide you want to buy you will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 424k.

You may consider 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million. You will need 20% down to purchase over 2.5 million.

There are no 2 bedroom apts that rent for only $1650 in PB, OB, or anywhere else close to the beach. Most 2 bedroom homes are $2,400 per month at the low end at the beach. Most properties do not allow smoking and the new laws will be coming into effect in 2 years in most states banning all smoking in residential zones. Also, most places do not allow pets. Get your pet certified as an E.S.A. as a service animal. That will allow you to rent with your kitty.

Also, I would look at 1 bedrooms for that budget. If you can quit smoking, that would save you a ton of money ! It's just not accepted in CA and you will feel a bit ostracized. Just keeping it real. You can also share a 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom with someone for about $1,200 ; but again the kitty and smoking will eliminate most possibilities. Perhaps try looking out in east county or down in imperial beach areas. Try the Clairemont area in San Diego because it is very central and within 5 miles of the beach. That is your best bet. Craigslist, Trulia, Zillow, or Hotpads (sharing) are the best places to look. Good luck to you !
