Hi, this is my first posting here so bear with me! I don't have too much money and was just wondering what neighborhoods in the city (I wouldn't want to live in the suburbs) would be cheapest to rent a place in but not have really high crime rates (ie. safe enough for a 20 year old female to walk home through at night). I also don't really know how much it would cost to rent a 2 bedroom apartment in San Diego. It wouldn't have to be nice, just livable. Does anyone have an estimate? If you could help that would be great! Thanks a lot!

Everyone wanting to move says "I want cheep and safe."Nothing here is cheep and you need a target number on how much you want to spend.Without a good and specific question,you won't get good and specific answers.

BTW-It sounds like you want to move here pretty bad.Do you?

Welcome You would enjoy North Park, Normal Heights, University Heights, Hillcrest, South Park, Golden Hill ( all fun, funky, shops, restaurants, clubs, boutiques) These are urban areas close to downtown, pretty safe, but just like Minneapolis at night, you have to keep your guard up a bit if you are gonna be out really late. You could check out Yelp.com., the young hip crowd chats there and could be even more help Also, downtown has lots of places for rent right now, very walkable to lots of things. Check craigslist too . Downtown areas where young people live are East Village, Little Italy, Marina district, and Gaslamp.

OHH SNAP!!!
450???I was in Tampa and they said 605 was cheep!!!

The places mentioned above pretty much sum it up.Central City areas in the Eastside and Downtown areas are ok,more hit and miss.There are areas where crime is a little high but other than that they should be good.N.Park,Normal,Kensington,Hillcrest,Little Italy,Golden Hill ect ect.If you wiki San Diego and go to "urban neighborhoods" under climate,places in Eastern,Mid-City,Western,Central are the ones that fit your question.

Your welcome.
We're here to help
Just another tip,searching apartments right?
If so I have a method I use because I am searching in Las Vegas.

My personal thing is forrent.com/rent.com/apartments.com
I use a target price(785-845 for Las Vegas so maybe like 1400-1625 maybe here)
Apartmentratings.com is a good site to see what people said about apartments.But if no one rated the complex,or it's say inder 25% I just skip it.After that, google map it.You can street view or sat. the location of the apartment.I do a lot more,but that is just because Vegas is a lot more dangerous than SD.

Hope this helps too.

Just stay around from Linda Vista,Parts of Clairmont,and a few streets in Serra Mesa.Other than that you should be fine.Like said before,how much are you willing to pay?Have you done research?Do you need amenities?
