What to know about moving in San Diego

How much is rent in San Diego?

In 2021, the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment in San Diego was $1,678. An apartment of the same size only cost $1,560 in 2020, so 2021’s average represents a growth of more than 7% over 2020.1

Unfortunately, this trend isn’t unique to the City in Motion. Many large American cities had similar rent increases in 2021. And though rental prices did go down in a handful of places like San Francisco and Seattle, rent in most of the country is continuing to soar ever higher.

How’s the weather in San Diego?

San Diego has one of the country’s nicest climates. Temperatures in the city rarely go above 77°F or below 44°F.2 When you’re planning your moving day, you probably don’t need to worry too much about the heat, even if you move in the middle of summer. That said, you should still keep plenty of cold water or sports drinks on hand for your moving crew.

For winter moves, rain can be a concern. November to April are San Diego’s wettest season,2 so keep an eye on the forecast if you’re moving during winter. As an extra precaution, pack your belongings into waterproof plastic tubs or wrap your water-senstitive items in trash bags.

How much do utilities cost in San Diego?

The average resident of California only pays $326.88 a month for their utilities.3 This includes the monthly costs for streaming services, electricity, broadband internet, natural gas, and water. So unlike its average rental prices or its average home costs, California’s average utility bills are some of the lowest in the nation.

How’s the live music scene in San Diego?

San Diego’s music scene is one of the best in the country for people who love live music. It only takes second place to Austin, Texas’ legendary music scene.

In fact, San Diego had 1,438 live music venues in 2019, which is roughly 4,000 more venues than Austin had.4 However, since San Diego’s population is much larger than Austin’s, it had fewer venues per capita. Of course, if you love a rowdy rock and roll show, you might appreciate that San Diego’s lower per capita number means venues can be a little more crowded than those in Austin.

No wonder so many famous rock and rollers came out of San Diego.
