City Guide
Little boxes on the hillside…

One of the few states to have its own architectural style, California housing patterns are predictable but in an aesthetically pleasing sort of way, and Ontario is no different; in simplest terms, Ontarians really like palm trees and nouveau Spanish styling and red tile roofs, so you’ll be living in one whether you like it or not. You may have also heard that property costs are through the aforementioned red-tiled roof here, but you’d be wrong. We’d say they’re somewhere near the third layer of the atmosphere. However, that’s neither here nor there because you’ll be renting in a market where prices are somewhat less painful. Prepare to rejoice at your bargain delight: median rent here is a California pittance at $1000.

If it’s an Empire, who’s the Emperor?

The tough thing about the Inland Empire, as interior California and San Bernadino County is referred to, is that the neighborhoods and towns sort of blend together. If you’re working in Ontario, living in Upland, San Bernadino, Chino or other similar areas is not out of the question by any means, but there are still plenty of good rental options in Ontario itself.


If you relish a nice mountain view, Archibald Ranch on Ontario’s western side may be what you’re after. There are fabulously large and imposing homes! A surprising number are available for rent due to the total bottoming out of the California real estate market. A four bedroom home, if available, will cost between $2,000 and $3,000 a month.

Ontario is basically lacking in a major downtown business district (unless you count L.A.), but there are still numerous historical areas with a number of vintage houses available. The areas off of Euclid Avenue are the oldest. College Heights and Armsely Square goes for around $2,000 - $3000 a month. There are also a small number of apartments available here; but you’ll pay around $1500 for a two bedroom.

Central Ontario is a possibility. There are plenty of apartment complexes to choose from, some starting at $600 and ranging up to $1300 for higher-end varieties.

The Creekside area to the south is by a lake, not a creek, so why it’s not called Lakeside is beyond us. Rents here are a little lower and a four bedroom house will run from $1700 to $2000, but one bedroom condos and apartments ranging from $700 - $900.

Seriously, quit hating on us.

Ontario is admittedly not the country’s next Miami or Chicago and you’re not going to find scads of ballets and operas taking place here, but you will find a Dave and Buster’s, which is basically the same thing except with more burgers and arcade games and less singing and dancing. If you need to rent an abode, there are enough options here that you can more than likely find something serviceable. You’ll often have to put down a large deposit and undergo a background check, but in the grand scheme of things, Ontario is a pretty decent little town with plenty to offer someone who’s looking.

Rent Report

June 2017 Ontario Rent Report

Welcome to the June 2017 Ontario Rent Report. Ontario rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Ontario rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Ontario rents increased significantly over the past month

Ontario rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, and are up significantly by 5.8% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Ontario stand at $1,160 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,450 for a two-bedroom. This is the fourth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Ontario's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 3.9%, as well as the national average of 2.6%.

Rents rising across the Riverside Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Ontario, but across the entire metro. Prices rose year-over-year in all of the 10 largest Riverside area cities that we have data for. Rents also increased in other areas of the state, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 3.9% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro, as well as the rest of the state.

  • Moreno Valley has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 7.8%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,690, while one-bedrooms go for $1,350.
  • San Bernardino has the least expensive rents in the Riverside metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,020; rents grew 0.2% over the past month and 3.1% over the past year.
  • Corona has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Riverside metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,110; rents increased 7.7% over the past year but remained flat month-over-month.
  • Looking throughout the rest of the state, San Francisco is the most expensive of all California's major cities outside the Riverside metro, with a median two-bedroom rent of $3,020; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, San Francisco, where a two-bedroom goes for $3,020, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-1.0%).
  • Sacramento, Anaheim, and Long Beach have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (7.4%, 5.1%, and 4.8%, respectively).

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Ontario

Compared to most large cities across the country, Ontario is less affordable for renters.

  • Ontario's median two-bedroom rent of $1,450 is above the national average of $1,150. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.6% over the past year.
  • While Ontario's rents rose over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Seattle (+5.2%), Phoenix (+4.9%), and Charlotte (+4.3%).
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Ontario than most large cities. Comparably, Albuquerque has a median 2BR rent of $850, where Ontario 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.


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.
