City GuideHacienda Heights
Hacienda Heights may be the 158th largest community in California, but don't mistake the rank for its popularity or affluence. Rather it just proves that a good life is not for everybody. This stable community, a den of successful professionals, enlivens the precept "small is beautiful.
Hacienda Heights may be the 158th largest community in California, but don't mistake the rank for its popularity or affluence. Rather it just proves that a good life is not for everybody. This stable community, a den of successful professionals, enlivens the precept "small is beautiful.

Don't let its small size fool you. With an area of just over 11 square miles, Hacienda Heights is fairly sparse and spread out. Initially an agricultural town, suburban residential development started in the 1940s. The single-family housing developments at the northern slopes of Puente Hills in the 1970s attracted many educated and affluent families to the community, and the settlement has never looked back since then. Today, most of the 54,426 residents are affluent professionals with advanced degrees, pitching tent here for the community's enviable combination of good schools, low crime, six parks, opportunity to develop social ties with successful families and other finer aspects of civilization. The community ranks among the top 1% for racial diversity.

Finding an Apartment

The bad news for those looking to rent an apartment is that a staggering 78.6% of the available 16,650 housing units are owner-occupied, and just 21.4% of the stock are rentals. Worse, the average homeowner vacancy rate stands at 1.0%, and the rental vacancy rate is just 3.6%. For the mathematically challenged, that means there aren't really that many rental places to begin with, and most of those are already taken.

How Much Does It Cost?
Brace yourself. Houses at Hacienda Heights do not come cheap. In fact, house prices here rank among the most expensive in the nation, and this has a reflection on rentals as well. One-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom apartments start from around $1,000 and go upward to $1,500. It's common for three-bedroom apartments to touch $2,000.

What Do You Need?
Patience, persistence, perseverance--lots of these. You'll also do yourself a favor by starting your search well in advance. Hacienda Heights is one place where the landlord clearly has the upper hand, so it pays if you approach the apartment hunt with the same seriousness as you would approach a job hunt. Dust off that file that you used to carry your certificates and testimonials to the job interview, and use it to carry your credentials, references and checkbook when meeting with the landlord. If you find the right apartment, settle immediately. Remember the adage “a bird in hand is worth two in the bush.”

Finding an Apartment
+

The bad news for those looking to rent an apartment is that a staggering 78.6% of the available 16,650 housing units are owner-occupied, and just 21.4% of the stock are rentals. Worse, the average homeowner vacancy rate stands at 1.0%, and the rental vacancy rate is just 3.6%. For the mathematically challenged, that means there aren't really that many rental places to begin with, and most of those are already taken.

How Much Does It Cost?
Brace yourself. Houses at Hacienda Heights do not come cheap. In fact, house prices here rank among the most expensive in the nation, and this has a reflection on rentals as well. One-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom apartments start from around $1,000 and go upward to $1,500. It's common for three-bedroom apartments to touch $2,000.

What Do You Need?
Patience, persistence, perseverance--lots of these. You'll also do yourself a favor by starting your search well in advance. Hacienda Heights is one place where the landlord clearly has the upper hand, so it pays if you approach the apartment hunt with the same seriousness as you would approach a job hunt. Dust off that file that you used to carry your certificates and testimonials to the job interview, and use it to carry your credentials, references and checkbook when meeting with the landlord. If you find the right apartment, settle immediately. Remember the adage “a bird in hand is worth two in the bush.”
