The cost of renting a home in southern California is, well shocking. How do most people out here do it? You have the posh, three blocks from the beach, types of homes that fetch $6K to $8K per month. You have small California style bungalows fetching $4K to $6K. And the price doesn’t drop that much moving in-land.
What’s the deal out here?
OK, so we are somewhat picky – no apartments, condos or townhouses. So that makes our search more difficult. But the prices still don’t add up for a couple who have a small, lovely home in Santa Fe with a mortgage at $1K.
Are the benefits of living in San Diego really 4 to 6 times greater? Perhaps, but the verdict is still up in the air for us.
