Things to Know About Life in Fullerton

Commute. Public transportation is very convenient. Buses run all over the city, and the train station in downtown serves two commuter rails: Amtrak and the Metrolink. A quick train ride can get you to downtown LA in just 30 minutes!

Art, Theater, and Rock n' Roll. The culture of Fullerton is full of creative activity. The Muckenthaler Cultural Center and the Fullerton Museum Center all contribute to the art and theater scene. There is also an established music scene, based on a history of Rock n' Roll. Popular bands such as Social Distortion and The Offspring got their start in this growing music center, which continues to entertain and evolve in Fullerton today.

Nearby Nirvana. Every once in a while, a withered soul needs to escape the normal routine. For some, that nirvana is found on a warm and sunny beach, which is just a 20 to 30 minute drive away. For others, it is snowboarding down powdery mountains, or biking through the crisp, cool air of higher elevations, just about an hour away. And, for those who find nirvana in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood or downtown LA, these hot spots are just about an hour away as well.


City Center. There are plenty of art galleries and museums, live music, coffee shops, pubs and clubs, and the train station... all connected by wide bike lanes and walkable streets. It's the perfect location.

Artisan Hills. Simple, charming, and convenient, this neighborhood is near the Brea Mall, and Craig Regional Park.

East University. Close to the train station, the 91 and 57 Freeways, as well as all of the eateries and nightlife of downtown.

North East. Tree-lined streets and adorable homes make this neighborhood very easy on the eyes. It is surrounded by the Coyote Hills Golf Course and Gilman Regional Park, so there is plenty of open green space to enjoy. Plus, the Brea Mall and the Brea Golf course are practically next door.

Sunny Hills. Here comes the neighborhood! Sunny Hills has always been a coveted location, with nearby shopping, proximity to downtown, and the expansive Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve.

West Coyote Hills. In between the Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve and Ralph B. Clark Regional Park, this suburban enclave is a comfortable place to call home with lots of opportunity for outdoor fun. Ralph B. Clark features a large amphitheater, baseball fields, volleyball courts, miles of hiking and biking trails, fire rings and barbecue pits, horseshoe pits, fishing, playgrounds, and a small museum featuring ice age fossils and local geology exhibits... all for free! While there are few rentals within the neighborhood, you can always find an apartment right along the border.

Does This Sound Like Your Cup of Tea?

If so, you better get in while the gettin's hot. Fullerton is filling up quick. With its constantly growing nightlife and cultural scene, its affordable apartments will soon be a thing of the past.

Renters show their community pride in their reviews of City Pointe Apartments. They love the easy access to the pool table, movie theater, outdoor firepit, and air hockey table makes it easy to invite friends over.

October 2018 Fullerton Rent Report

Welcome to the October 2018 Fullerton Rent Report. Fullerton rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Fullerton rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Fullerton rents increased significantly over the past month

Fullerton rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, and are up moderately by 2.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Fullerton stand at $1,560 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,000 for a two-bedroom. This is the eighth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Fullerton's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.1%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

Rents rising across the Los Angeles Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Fullerton, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Los Angeles metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.


Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Fullerton’s results from the third annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. This survey, which drew on responses from over 45,000 renters, provides insight on what states and cities must do to meet the needs of 111 million American renters nationwide.

"Fullerton renters expressed general satisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "However, ratings varied greatly across different categories, indicating that even though renters love Fullerton, some aspects can be better."

Key findings in Fullerton include the following:

  • Fullerton renters gave their city an A overall.
  • The highest-rated categories for Fullerton were quality of local schools (A-) and social life (B+).
  • The areas of concern to Fullerton renters are affordability (F), jobs and career opportunities (D), commute time (D) and public transit (D).
  • Fullerton did relatively well compared to other nearby cities, including Los Angeles (C+), Anaheim (C) and Riverside (D).
  • Fullerton did relatively well compared to other cities nationwide, including Miami, FL (C+), Las Vegas, NV (C) and New York, NY (C+).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction include Scottsdale, AZ, Irvine, CA, Boulder, CO and Ann Arbor, MI. The lowest rated cities include Tallahassee, FL, Stockton, CA, Dayton, OH, Detroit, MI and Newark, NJ.

Renters say:

  • "Love the location. Lots of stuff to do. Wish the neighborhood was nicer and the city of Fullerton would try to spruce things up in the southern parts of town." – Antoinette S.
  • "I love the safety in the neighborhood but dislike the constant spikes in rent."- Delia C.
  • "Fullerton is perfect for nightlife. It’s just too expensive." – Alyssa H.
  • "I love how it’s a peaceful city. The nightclubs and restaurants are mostly downtown, away from the houses." – Genesis E.
