Can someone manage 10.000$ to start and move to California unemployed for a year? Is it cheaper to live in other parts of the state?
#Justin on Feb 06, 2016 :
#SS: part time jobs like that are very easy to get in San Diego. You can expect to start at around $10 per hour.
#SS on Dec 06, 2015 :

Hello, how far will 90k go for a single person innsan Diego?
#Dwayne on Sep 26, 2015 :
I'd like someone to send me some info about renting in the 55+ community areas. Please send to djbronk@yahoo.com
#C on Aug 29, 2015 :
For people that are above 55+, there are some really nice senior communities that requires at least one person on the lease be 55 or some similar rules. The rental price or actual buying prices of these homes are really low compared to the other homes here in SD, so if you're moving to SD you really need to look at that first.
#Beka on Aug 28, 2015 :
I am single, 63, female, moving from east coast to San Diego. Does the city have any special provisions for senior citizens?
#Hoss harb on Jul 16, 2015 :
Please an advise
I am 54 years Ovid,family of 2 kids &teenager girl ready for high school.
How much income is needed to live in San deigo.
#Pat on Jul 09, 2015 :
You'd have to live in one of the outer suburbs and things will be tight, but its doable. A roommate would give you a lot more breathing room.
#Kim on Mar 29, 2015 :
MAYBE, but that is only if you are sharing housing costs with someone. I have barely made it with 40k for years while single, so if you had a roomie you could make it though not in luxoury.
#SD on Mar 16, 2015 :
Hi, is one person can manage with 35 K a year in San Diego? thanks.
