City Guide
La Quinta
Moving to La Quinta

If you want to move to La Quinta, it’s like a permanent vacation spot. Rental property in La Quinta is widely available simply because there are so many people who want to live here. Yet despite the desirability of living in a resort town, the population here is still small enough that there is plenty of room to spread out. This is not a place for urban sprawl.

Considering that La Quinta and nearby Indio are in a resort area, it’s surprisingly affordable. One-bedroom La Quinta apartments are priced comparably with many Midwestern cities, so you can spend more of your time enjoying the palm trees and mountains than working just to pay your rent.

Finding an apartment that has all bills paid can be a challenge, but you may still be able to find other incentives that make your apartment even more affordable. Some apartment complexes may offer move-in specials or discounts on security deposits.

If you have pets, you may be able to find a rental home that allows them. Landlords and property managers may allow certain types of pets, though they may require additional security deposits or increased monthly rent.

When you want to rent an apartment anyway, including in La Quinta, you’ll have some things to line up first. Make sure you have good rental references from previous places you’ve lived, so that new apartment managers won’t be worried you’ll trash the place. And of course you need a legitimate job, because you’ll need to prove that you earn two to three times the amount of the monthly rent.

Life in La Quinta

La Quinta is in the middle of the desert, so there’s no way around saying it: it’s really hot! Summer temperatures regularly get above a hundred degrees during most of the summer. It’s definitely a dry heat rather than miserably humid, but it’s still just plain hot. Some people prefer this kind of climate, but if you’re not one of them, almost every place has air conditioning and you can just hide indoors from the weather like Midwesterners do during the months of snow storms. But if you’re moving here because you don’t like the cold, you’re in luck: even the average winter temperatures are above 70 degrees. Leave your parka behind, because you won’t need it here.

Like most other cities in the desert, you’ll need a car to get around. La Quinta has very few public transportation options. Fortunately, commute times are pretty short because the area isn’t that large, so you don’t have to worry that you’ll spend a lot of time stuck in traffic.

Living in La Quinta really is like a permanent retreat. The fact that you can live among such beautiful views for such a relatively low price makes this a great place to call home.

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.

Methodology:

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.
