City Guide
Norwalk
What’s the appeal of Norwalk, anyway? Why would I want to live there?

Three reasons: location, location, and location. Residents of Norwalk enjoy the serenity of the suburbs while also residing within stone’s throw (as long as you can throw a stone 10-20 miles, that is) of L.A., Orange County, Garden Grove, Long Beach, and Riverside. If you want to live on the doorstep of the hustle and bustle of SoCal without having to deal with the utter insanity of the actual big city, Norwalk might be your best bet.

Aren’t the suburbs kind of boring, though?

Generally, yes. However, Los Angeles County isn’t your typical über-sleepy slice of American suburbia. A modest but adequate number of clubs, bars, karaoke joints, and restaurants dot the streets of Norwalk, and the city’s proximity to L.A. makes it an ideal living locale.

I bet traffic’s a nightmare, though, isn’t it?

Well, sort of. If you live in Norwalk and work elsewhere in the L.A. metro area, you’re likely to spend a good chunk of your morning and evening stuck in your car. We’d make a joke about the traffic, but you’ve probably heard it before. The good news is that the MTA and/or Metrolink bus and rail services connect Norwalk to downtown L.A., Orange County, Long Beach, Riverside County, and, most importantly, Disneyland, allowing commuters to bypass the gridlock that plagues the rest of Southern California. Because Norwalk has begun to sprawl, however, you’ll need your own set of wheels to navigate the city itself and shop, bank, dine, and play conveniently, unless you really like walking.

How expensive is apartment life – and life in general – in Norwalk?

For L.A. standards, Norwalk is actually on the cheap side. Apartments average around $1500, but cheaper and much, much, much more expensive rentals are available as well. You’re more likely to come across move-in specials in Norwalk than in Orange County or L.A. proper, but killer deals aren’t exactly a dime a dozen, either.

What can I expect from a Norwalk apartment?

Apartments in Norwalk are as varied as the city’s residents. Rental properties range from basic studio crash pads to pre-furnished luxury apartments offering a slew of top-notch amenities. Most apartments in Norwalk are well-established, though, and less than two percent of the city’s residential buildings were built post-1995. Many have been renovated or remain in good shape, while others have seen better days (to put it kindly), so scope out your new digs carefully before signing a lease.

Any advice for apartment seekers?

There are no special secrets to renting in Norwalk. Just be prepared and arm yourself with the basics, including a list of previous residences, proof of income, and banking statements. Most leases are for a full year, but a few properties offer short-term/corporate leases as well. Peruse your lease carefully before signing it. Also, give your new place a solid inspection before moving anything in; make sure your appliances function, your pipes, sinks, toilets, showers, and drains are up to par, the doors and windows open and lock properly, and the walls, ceilings, and floors are generally blemish-free. And don’t treat your apartment like a 1970s rock star’s hotel room; your move-in deposit is only returnable if you keep your place in tip-top shape.

And now for the fun part: finding you your dream pad. Congrats in advance, and welcome to Norwalk!

December 2018 Norwalk Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2018 Norwalk Rent Report. Norwalk rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Norwalk rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Norwalk rents declined significantly over the past month

Norwalk rents have declined 0.4% over the past month, and are down slightly by 0.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Norwalk stand at $1,520 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,950 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in September. Norwalk's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.4%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rents rising across the Los Angeles Metro

While rent prices have decreased in Norwalk over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 7 of the largest 10 cities in the Los Angeles metro for which we have data. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Santa Clarita has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 4.0%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,600, while one-bedrooms go for $2,020.
  • Over the past month, Huntington Beach has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.0%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $2,350, while one-bedrooms go for $1,830.
  • Lancaster has the least expensive rents in the Los Angeles metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,750; rents decreased 0.1% over the past month but were up 2.0% over the past year.
  • Irvine has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Los Angeles metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,710; rents remained steady over the past month.

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Norwalk

As rents have fallen moderately in Norwalk, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Norwalk is less affordable for renters.

  • Other cities across the state have seen rents moderately increase, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 1.4% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.2% in San Jose, 1.8% in San Francisco, and 1.0% in San Diego.
  • Norwalk's median two-bedroom rent of $1,950 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 0.5% decline in Norwalk.
  • While rents in Norwalk fell moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.2%), Austin (+3.1%), and New York (+2.3%).
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Norwalk than most large cities. For example, Houston has a median 2BR rent of $1,030, where Norwalk is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

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.
