  • Housing Statistics The median cost of homes in San Diego is about $360,000, which is more than double the US median. Of course, the cost of living in this city is also higher than average, so you can expect to pay more to live here. More specifically, if you want a condo, you'll probably pay about $253,000, while the median cost of single-family homes here is $390,000. The good news is that you will have lots of options, whether you plan to rent, buy, or rent to own, since about 48 percent of properties here are rental homes and 45 percent are owner-occupied. The vacancy rate is only about 6 percent, which is no surprise since so many people are eager to enjoy the pleasantly mild climate of San Diego.
  • Weather and Climate Whether you're tired of the constant heat where you live or want to stop shoveling snow, San Diego will delight you. The high temperature in the summer is usually no more than a cool 75 degrees, and the winter temperature rarely dips below 48 degrees. T-shirts, shorts, jeans, and bathing suits largely make up the typical San Diegan's wardrobe, with maybe with a light jacket thrown in there for the slightly chilly nights. Don't expect much rain when you get here, either, since precipitation is about 10 inches annually, compared to the national average of about 37 inches. Just be aware that the coastal areas of the city are susceptible to what is called June gloom, which consists of lots of clouds and a cool, humid feeling for part of the summer. If you live a few miles inland, you can avoid this, and you will actually notice slightly warmer temperatures year round compared to the coast.
  • Nightlife San Diego has plenty of nightlife options, with one of the most popular locations being the Gaslamp District. This area is made up of a few streets lined with historic buildings that house everything from newer bars and trendy nightclubs to relaxing hookah lounges and family-friendly restaurants. For example, you can watch sports on TV at the cozy Dublin Square Irish Pub and Grill, listen to live bands at Hennessey's Tavern, or smoke hookah and have a drink at Pasha Lounge. Many of the buildings in this area were constructed in the late 1800s, when this part of San Diego was known for its saloons and brothels. But thanks to some remodeling and revitalization efforts in the last few decades, the Gaslamp District has become a popular place for both residents and tourists who want to party, and the many hotels and lofts near the bars prove this. If you'd prefer to socialize along the beach, though, you can head to Pacific Beach to take advantage of the bars there, which are known for being casual and appealing to mostly college students. Just one example is the Pacific Beach Bar and Grill, which goes from a casual hangout during the day to a rowdy club at night. Mission Beach also has some bars and restaurants along the coast, drawing mostly tourists, while Ocean Beach's tiny beachfront bars - including the Arizona Cafe and Shades Oceanfront Bistro - appeal to laid-back locals.
  • Neighborhood Guide San Diego has more than 100 neighborhoods of all sizes, and each one is part of a larger region in the city. What sets the regions apart is mainly the proximity to the beach. Take a look at some of the most popular areas of this city before you start looking for rental houses and homes for sale.
