There are many reasons to choose to live or move to San Diego also known as ‘America’s finest city’. 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. Yes, San Diego is a great place to live and it has a good job market, but it’s not cheap and rent is quite more than the national average. To make living in San Diego more viable, you may want to find a roommate or check out a room for rent.

The San Diego area in general is known for high rent prices, but they have been fairly stable at $1,850 for a one bedroom. Rent for a two-bedroom is more, but having a roommate to help split the cost of rent means a lower monthly payment. This makes it well worth finding 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 two bedroom. The popular Pacific Beach is a bit more affordable with $2,500 a month. And If your budget is higher, you may consider Mission Beach where rents for a two bedroom average $~3,500. If you prefer a more city vibe and to be near the restaurants, shopping and nightlife SD has to offer, there are a lot of options in downtown San Diego. In Gaslamp, Little Italy, Logan Heights, Marina, or Bankers Hill you will find two bedroom apartments for the average rent of ~$2,800. Other areas in Central San Diego that will get you quickly to Downtown or 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 range of rent varies widely between $2,000 to $4,000 in those towns.
