City Guide
Garden Grove
Living Affordably in Garden Grove

Garden Grove is a hopping city with over 170,000 residents, wi-fi, and a lot of asphalt. But while you get ready access to all of the shopping and conveniences that modern urbanites demand, you won't pay through the esophagus for them. No, things aren't precisely cheap; but then no place is cheap in California, particularly no place within an easy drive of Tinsel Town. Still, home prices and rental rates here are approachable, especially when you consider the proximity to so many world-class attractions and, you know, the fantastic weather.

Finding a Rental

This might take some effort, because you're not the only one that wants to live here. In fact, of Garden Grove's nearly 47,000 residences, less than 2% are typically vacant. That means you'd better prepare yourself to stand out from the other hopeful house-hunting shmoes. Here are some useful things you can do to separate yourself from the herd.

  • Come prepared with income verification, a copy of your credit report, and two or more glowing testimonials from past landlords.

  • Set up a cell phone with a local number. Landlords smile when they see local numbers.

  • While you're at it, establish a bank account locally, too. Try to pass an out-of-state check and you'll quickly discover why this is important.

Garden Grove Neighborhoods

There are more than 30 local neighborhoods, including one that's not really in the city. You might find it helpful to use an apartment locator service or broker to help shorten your search. Meanwhile, here are some useful notes on some of Garden Grove's popular neighborhoods.

Lampson Avenue/Picket Avenue: Welcome to West Garden Grove. Connected only by a strip of highway to the city proper, this suburban community offers a lower population density, slower pace, and better-performing debate club than its "maintown" neighbors.

Euclid Street/Garden Grove Boulevard: This neighborhood is a good place to find hi-rise apartments, fried noodles, and large garages.

Fairview Street/Downie Place: Stroll down the gorgeously tree-lined streets or enjoy a round of golf in your own backyard. There's a price for this life but, if you can stand the heat, this is one fine kitchen.

Town Center: Life in downtown Grove City is nothing if not interesting. You'll see loads of tourists armed with baskets of strawberries and Disneyland maps, and you'll be able to amble through historic Main Street Garden Grove. Houses and apartments are in reasonably good supply, and rental rates are relatively affordable.

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.
