In San Diego County, would someplace like Ramona, Harbison Canyon, Dehesa Valley, or Jamul have something in the appropriate range? I don't know these towns except that they are pretty far inland, but still on the west side of the mountain range. And they don't seem to have a negative repuation that has preceded them. Look and see if something can be found out there.

If you want to have great weather, lots of beaches and rent in that price range, just move to Florida.

Default Why not move to Tennessee?!

Not sure if there is such a place anymore in CA.
I lived in San Diego the last 25 years and just pulled the plug and moved to Franklin Tennessee!
Its wonderful...........there really is ~southern hospitality~
The quality of life is better, cheaper and slower...and the weather is not bad at all!
You can buy a brick 3500 sq ft house for 250K..amazing!

If you'd like any more information....email me @ shellybroward@yahoo.com

I have a home in Hesperia, CA (high desert - near Victorville) that is for rent. It's a little above what you want to pay, but it is new and clean. It is 5 bedrooms 3 baths. PM me if you are interested.

I live in North San Diego County at the moment. You will not find rent that cheap for that kind of property unless you are willing to live with bars on the windows and your finger on the trigger. our last apartment was 850sq ft 2bd and ran for 1700mo. It was the cheapest we could find in the areas we were willing to live in. You can definetly find cheaper than that but it is a very typical size to rent expectation. In our area a home like you are refering to would not go for less than 2500mo. Good luck to you though. You have to consider that by all rankings on housing costs all but 2 are in Southern California. Take a look at the list.

I have lived in so cal my whole life....right now I live in Temecula which 10 years ago was a pretty nice place to live. Now it's been overrun by people trying to escape LA and SD, trying to get into a "newer, bigger and better" Stucco-box! Anyways, we pay $1210, plus utilities, for a one-bedroom apartment. It is newly remodeled, which is nice. If you want to spend $1000, you will most likely be in a place that is not-so-safe, ie, drugs, loud music, theft, ect. If you are not totally bent on MI, my advice would be to sell your house, assuming you own one, and buy when the market hits rock bottom. The hope for first-timers owning any sort of desirable property in SoCal is, at the moment, lost.

Good Luck!

We are $1Billion in the hole and economists are recommending everyone move from here! That is sad. I've just always wanted to live in CA, if you ever lived where I live, it would seem like paradise compared to MI!
did you say under $1000 per month in southern cali!!!!!! let me know if you find it? good luck with that

Default rent in SoCal

I live in the Conejo Valley (just northwest of LA) and pay over $2000 for a 3/2 1500 sq ft house, and this is the entry level rent here.

$2500? There are 3-BR DH rentals in Carlsbad advertised for under that. We rent a 2600 sq foot house in San Marcos - built '01 - for $2000.
