About 40 miles from the utter chaos of Los Angeles is the town of Ontario, California, named by two brothers who escaped the barren hinterland of Ontario, Canada and found the complete opposite place in California, but decided to give it the same name anyway. Go figure. Hey, creativity isn’t everybody’s strong suit. Sure, it may lack a tad in the trendy California culture, but it definitely still has the sickeningly perfect weather and scenery. And isn’t that half the reason you’re moving here, anyway?

Little boxes on the hillside…

One of the few states to have its own architectural style, California housing patterns are predictable but in an aesthetically pleasing sort of way, and Ontario is no different; in simplest terms, Ontarians really like palm trees and nouveau Spanish styling and red tile roofs, so you’ll be living in one whether you like it or not. You may have also heard that property costs are through the aforementioned red-tiled roof here, but you’d be wrong. We’d say they’re somewhere near the third layer of the atmosphere. However, that’s neither here nor there because you’ll be renting in a market where prices are somewhat less painful. Prepare to rejoice at your bargain delight: median rent here is a California pittance at $1000.

If it’s an Empire, who’s the Emperor?

The tough thing about the Inland Empire, as interior California and San Bernadino County is referred to, is that the neighborhoods and towns sort of blend together. If you’re working in Ontario, living in Upland, San Bernadino, Chino or other similar areas is not out of the question by any means, but there are still plenty of good rental options in Ontario itself.

Neighborhoods

If you relish a nice mountain view, Archibald Ranch on Ontario’s western side may be what you’re after. There are fabulously large and imposing homes! A surprising number are available for rent due to the total bottoming out of the California real estate market. A four bedroom home, if available, will cost between $2,000 and $3,000 a month.

Ontario is basically lacking in a major downtown business district (unless you count L.A.), but there are still numerous historical areas with a number of vintage houses available. The areas off of Euclid Avenue are the oldest. College Heights and Armsely Square goes for around $2,000 - $3000 a month. There are also a small number of apartments available here; but you’ll pay around $1500 for a two bedroom.

Central Ontario is a possibility. There are plenty of apartment complexes to choose from, some starting at $600 and ranging up to $1300 for higher-end varieties.

The Creekside area to the south is by a lake, not a creek, so why it’s not called Lakeside is beyond us. Rents here are a little lower and a four bedroom house will run from $1700 to $2000, but one bedroom condos and apartments ranging from $700 - $900.

Seriously, quit hating on us.

Ontario is admittedly not the country’s next Miami or Chicago and you’re not going to find scads of ballets and operas taking place here, but you will find a Dave and Buster’s, which is basically the same thing except with more burgers and arcade games and less singing and dancing. If you need to rent an abode, there are enough options here that you can more than likely find something serviceable. You’ll often have to put down a large deposit and undergo a background check, but in the grand scheme of things, Ontario is a pretty decent little town with plenty to offer someone who’s looking.
