What to keep in mind when looking for 1 bedroom apartments in San Diego, CA

Looking for 1 bedroom apartments in San Diego offers a variety of choices and price points. 1 bedroom apartments allow more privacy than living with a roommate, and gives you more flexibility to find the perfect space for yourself or with a significant other.

There are a few things to consider when touring 1 bedroom apartments, including the square footage and layout.
