Moving to East Los Angeles

Demand in at least some East L.A. neighborhoods is tight, so don't count on being able to find an apartment quickly. There are plenty of rental properties to look at, but you'll need to be lightning fast to grab yourself a desirable place before another renter snaps it up. To maximize your chances of getting the property you want, you need to get organized! Phone up your previous landlord and ask for a reference - and make sure you ask nicely, as the people you're looking to rent from want to hear good things about your ability to take care of a rental property. Also, get a hold of a letter from your L.A. employer to show that you'll have an income coming in, so that you can pay the rent.

It's also not a bad idea to save up some cash before you start looking for apartments to rent in East Los Angeles. You'll want to have enough left over to meet the costs of moving once you've put down a hefty deposit to secure your place in the city.

Neighborhoods in East Los Angeles

East Los Angeles can be broken down into a variety of neighborhoods. Here are some of the main districts that you will want to consider in your search for an apartment.

East Los Angeles City Center: There are shops, local businesses, and a public library, as well as a scattering of studio apartments and small single-family homes.

N Eastern Ave/E Cesar E Chavez Ave: Located just north of the center of East Los Angeles, this is a lively yet affordable area. The spacious Obregan park is where you can relax in the California sunshine on your off time.

Belvedere/Maravilla: It's likely to be a small-to-medium-sized single-family home, or an apartment in a hi-rise block.

Whittier Blvd/S Downey Rd: Competition for these apartments and single-family homes is strong, but rental prices aren't too bad - by California standards at least.

Eagle St/S Bonnie Beach Pl: This neighborhood, located to the west of the center of East Los Angeles, has a vacancy rate of 5.5%, which is relatively high compared to some other local areas. You'll find a wide range of properties here, from studio apartments to traditional townhouses.

Living in East Los Angeles

East Los Angeles is an urban neighborhood - you'll get all the perks of varied dining options, all the stores you could ever need within easy reach, and bars where you can relax (or live it up) during the evening.

This is one of the few parts of California where you could get away without owning a car. Carpools and public transportation are plentiful. You can get in and out of central Los Angeles relatively easily using the local buses. There is also a light rail line connecting East L.A. to downtown L.A. and Pasadena. East Los Angeles is a ideal place to avoid the headaches and road rage of commuter traffic.

East L.A. is a friendly and warm place where you can get to know your neighbors. Come on over and enjoy the inspired food, listen to the next generation of musicians in the local bars, and tan a beautiful golden brown in the SoCal sunshine. You'll be very welcome.
