How much will it cost?
Renting in Adelanto is very affordable. In fact, it has some of the most affordable rental prices in the nation! This is a rural and rustic area, so the prices are set to draw residents to the city to help foster growth. It is easy to find all types of rentals, from 1-bedrooms to 4- or 5-bedroom spots for a good price.
How long is the commute?
Remember, this is a town that is located in the high desert just east of the Angeles National Forest and south of Edwards Air Force Base. So, unless your job is in Adelanto itself or nearby Victorville, you can count on commuting at least an hour to and from work.
When to look, when to rent?
Adelanto is in a growth cycle, with new subdivisions being developed at a rapid pace to keep up with the blossoming population. So basically, anytime is a good time to look! From small studio apartments to large 4- and 5-bedroom homes, there is literally something for everyone in this town!
Should I use an agent?
Finding an agent who is familiar with the neighborhoods and who can gauge your needs in order to properly match you with not only a good rental but a good area of town is essential. Pick their brains for advice. Why not, right?
What do I need to bring?
Most importantly, bring the basics with you when you meet with the agent to look at places. This includes your list of must-haves (home size and amenities to be included), your identification documents, deposits for first, last, and security deposit, rental references, and proof of employment. If you have these bases covered, you will have no trouble finding a place to live in Adelanto.
Mojave Heights:This is a suburban neighborhood with medium-sized homes (3 to 4 bedrooms) to small single-family and mobile homes. Rental prices are lower than average in this area compared to the rest of California, a bonus for many of the residents. This neighborhood keeps you on your toes when you're out and about.
City Center:The rentals in this neighborhood are affordable and made up of complexes, high-rise apartments, and single-family homes. In the heart of Adelanto there is all kinds of night activity, so you can go to the theater to deal with the chaos, or just watching DVDs at home for a quiet night. The rental prices are low and that is a big draw, as well as local parks and playgrounds.
Daisy Rd/Pearblossom Hwy:This is a very walkable area filled with medium- and large-sized, single-family homes. Most were built after 1970, but there are a few historic homes still standing that were built before 1939. Way before Wi-Fi.
Melody Pl/Daisy Rd:Modern, medium to large homes make up this suburb.
North Adelanto:A newly developed, well-planned suburban area with excellent home prices.
The good news about Adelanto is the desert sky provides inky black skies that show off the Milky Way in all of its splendor! No big-city lights to destroy or impede the view, you are far enough away to not have to deal with SoCal's light and air pollution. The bad news is also the fact you are far away from the big city: We are talking commute here. If you don't mind the drive, Adelanto is a wonderful spot to pay small-town rent or mortgage. This is desert life.
