SAN DIEGO -- A number of residents in San Diego County are having a hard time finding a place to call home.
One family told FOX 5 they are looking to move from Valley Center to Vista, and even though it is a good ways outside the heart of San Diego it is still hard to find an affordable place to live.
At age of 18 the Navy brought Michale Turner to San Diego and it is where he chose to raise his family.
“I love San Diego for all of the right reasons, like anybody else. I believe it’s a great place to live,” Turner said.
Turner said he does not want to leave, but the cost of living has forced him to think about it.
For the past six months he, his wife and 15-year-old son have been searching for a home in the Vista area.
“We’re looking at rentals, but we’re looking at purchases also in Vista and neither is more rosy than the other,” Turner said.
Turner said the average rental price they have seen is about $2,400 dollars, but other places they have looked at are well over that price.
