City Guide
Hawthorne
It's Come a Long Way, Baby

Hawthorne has come a long way from the 80-acre, one-horse town established by investors attracted by the narrow-gauge railway in 1887. The Hawthorne Land Company positioned the town as a good settlement between the city of Los Angeles and the sea, especially for people who wanted to raise poultry and grow veggies. The attraction still holds, fueled mainly by the year-round Mediterranean climate of the Los Angeles basin and the fact that it is just 5 miles or 10 minutes to Los Angeles International Airport, 20 minutes to downtown LA, and only 10 minutes to the beaches. Add all that to the good mix of businesses, industries, schools, retail complexes and more that this area offers, and it's no wonder 89,000 people chose to settle in the 6.1 square miles of the city of Hawthorne. Most veggie and poultry growers are out by now, though.

Moving to the City/Finding an Apartment

You might have guessed it by now. The ease of finding an apartment runs inversely proportional to the charm and allure of the city. Hawthorne is no different. The supply is rather limited, and take a deep breath before you look at vacancy rates. They hover around 5 to 6 percent overall, but you'll also see as little as 1 to 2 percent, depending on the neighborhood that catches your fancy.

How Much Does It Cost?

If you want to enjoy the strategic benefits of Hawthorne, be ready to pay for it. Average rents run higher than those for the rest of California.

What Do You Need?

Wear your professional hat when you're hunting for an apartment. The task is as daunting and serious as a job hunt. Start early. Decide what you want, adopt a systematic approach, persevere and seize the moment when it eventually comes. Then? Thank your lucky stars.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released results for Hawthorne from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

“Hawthorne renters expressed very low satisfaction with their city,” says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “They gave average or below-average scores across the board.”

Key findings in Hawthorne include the following:

  • Hawthorne renters give their city an F overall for satisfaction.
  • The highest-rated category for Hawthorne was the quality of local schools, which received a B score.
  • Renters seemed somewhat concerned with access to public transit (B-).
  • The largest sources of dissatisfaction were affordability (C-), local job and career opportunities (D), safety (D), and access to parks and community events (F).
  • Renters here are less satisfied than those in other California cities like Santa Monica (A+), Irvine (A+), Glendale (A+), and Inglewood (C-).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.
