City Guide
La Habra
Finding an Apartment in La Habra

Remember, the vacancy rate is only 3%, meaning you should expect some competition for the desirable rental properties. Some of the following tips will improve your chances of getting a really nice piece of this beautiful city.

Cost Considerations The cost of living in La Habra is higher than the national average by almost 50%. This means your move to La Habra will most likely not be a cheap one, unless you are moving from one of the super-expensive cities, like New York or San Francisco. The price you can expect to pay for your apartment will largely depend on factors like the neighborhood, amenities and exclusivity of the property.

Where to Rent A little research beforehand (just like the one you are doing now) will help you decide on the best area that fits your schedule, taste and budget. For instance, if you do not have your own transportation, you probably want a place that is accessible to public transportation. On the other hand, if you do have a family, with two or more cars, you might need a place with enough parking spaces. Most apartments have rules regarding parking, such as only one car or two cars per tenant. Some apartments do not have any parking, and tenants have to make do by parking in the street.

Requirements Considering the fact that you will have other prospective renters competing against you for good rental housing, having a plan is definitely the right way to go. One way to make it easier to search for apartments in La Habra is to come up with a list of the things you want in an apartment, with the most important stuff at the very top. Rental managers will most likely conduct a credit check to find out if you have a history of paying your bills on time and to assure themselves that you will pay their rent as well. Fill out a rental application form, and get a copy of your employment letter, proof of income (usually pay stubs) and a letter (or two) of reference, such as from an employer or former landlord. You will also need your security deposit and the first month’s rent.

Where to Live in La Habra

The choice of where to live in any city is a personal one that affects a resident’s general perception of a city. If you live in an exclusive part of town, you will pay more rent but have access to better housing, better security and better amenities. Using the $ symbol, with $$$$$ as the most costly, let's examine some of the neighborhoods in La Habra.

Des Moines: Rental prices here are quite affordable. The rental vacancy in this particular area is quite low at 1.7%, and available rental apartments are mainly composed of apartment complexes ranging from one to four bedrooms, as well as some high-rise apartments. $$

La Habra City Center: This neighborhood is a culturally interesting one, with a mixture of residents of different origins. $$$

S Beach Blvd/W Lambert Rd: Apartments in this area are also in the form of high-rise apartments and apartment complexes. Unfortunately for newcomers, the rent here is a bit on the expensive side. $$$

Life in La Habra

One of the things that makes La Habra unique is the very culturally diverse constitution of the residents. People of different ethnicities call this place home, influencing the socio-cultural life in the city. Most of the residents have their own vehicles, but a sizable numbers use public transportation to move around.

Trying to avoid L.A. but still want a little of that Hollywood lime life? La Habra has a history of successful musicians, including Rusty Anderson, the lead guitarist for Paul McCartney's tours. That's kind of like saying a Beatle is from La Habra, right?

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.
