You may be moving to San Diego to enjoy the Southern California weather, the pristine beaches, laid back culture or maybe to serve in the Navy or Marines.

The San Diego area in general is known for high rent prices, but they have been fairly stable at $1,850 for a 1 bedroom. Rent for a 2 bedroom is more, but having a roommate to help split the cost of rent means a lower monthly payment. This makes it well worth find rooms for rent with a roommate. If you would like to live by the beach, you have a few options. La Jolla Shores, just north of San Diego, or Ocean Beach will cost around $3000 for a 2 bedroom. The popular Pacific Beach is a bit more affordable with $2,500 a month. And If your budget is higher, you may consider getting a room in Mission Beach where rents for a 2 bedroom average ~$3,500. If you prefer a city vibe and to be near the restaurants, shopping and nightlife SD has to offer, there are plenty of options in downtown San Diego. In Gaslamp, Little Italy, Logan Heights, Marina, or Bankers Hill 2 bedroom apartments go for an average rent of ~$2,800. Other areas in Central San Diego that are close to Downtown and the Beaches are Mission Hills, Mission Valley, Oldtown or Hillcrest, where rent ranges between ~$2,400 to $3,000. For more affordable living, you could choose one of the areas in Inland San Diego like Linda Vista, City Heights, North Park, Balboa Park, or Normal Heights where rent will be closer to $2,000. If you want to live on the coast but a bit away from the center of San Diego, there are a few beach towns to consider such as Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas and Del Mar. The rent varies widely between $2,000 to $4,000 in these towns.
