If you are young, single, and your financial responsibilities are small, why not buy your own apartment? You can buy a San Diego condominium in the low 200s. With an apartment you don’t have to worry about regular yard maintenance, pool upkeep, or even pay for a gym membership, if the complex you buy into already has one. You can own your own piece of land without throwing money away each month to your landlord. For more information on why you should own your own apartment read Own vs Rent Your Own Apartment and Save.
