City Guide
Palmdale
Moving to Palmdale

When you know you are going to move is when you should begin preparing for the event, because it is certainly an event! Have the obvious necessities ready from the start, which means you should have your identification, rental history, credit history and references, in addition to your proof of income or work history. Those are the basics everyone needs to cover the requirements, since landlords tend to be mostly interested in making sure tenants can actually pay rent. What a concept!

Next you will want to find a realtor or agent in the Palmdale area who is familiar with the housing options here. Prepare a list stating what your specific needs are in a home so that the agent or realtor can begin to narrow the search, saving you some time and trouble. Security deposits are a given, so you will want to prepare to have enough on hand for first and last month's rent, as well as any pet deposits if they are required. Once you have all of this in order, finding the perfect place to live should be a relatively simple step... it's the packing, moving and unpacking that will be the real challenge!

Neighborhoods in Palmdale

Before you move to this city, you should get an idea of the different areas to live in. After all, they're certainly not all the same. Each area has some distinct landmarks, amenities, and most importantly prices!

Sierra Hwy and Pearblossom Hwy: This suburban neighborhood is incredibly affordable, especially by Californian standards! Single-family homes, row houses, some mobile homes and a few apartment complexes are predominantly found in this area. The vacancy rate is about 7% in this area, giving those who wish to find a place a fighting chance!

Leona Valley: The Leona Valley neighborhood is gorgeous. This area is suburban and slightly remote at the northwestern edge of Palmdale. This affords residents privacy without the dreadful commute to and from work each day. In fact, the average commute is only 15-30 minutes, depending on weather and other conditions.

Angeles Forest Hwy and Carson Mesa Rd: This is a very rural neighborhood with moderately average rental prices. The homes here are few and far between. So if you favor wide open spaces, little to no traffic, and a mile or two between you and your closest neighbor, then this might just be the area for you!

Angeles Forest Hwy and Aliso Canyon Rd: Situated below Vasquez Rocks Park and west of Devil's Punch Bowl Park, this remote neighborhood is not only gorgeous, but very affordable! Dotted with single-family homes of various sizes and some mobile homes.

Elizabeth Lake Rd and Godde Hill Rd: If a somewhat remote suburban setting is what you are seeking, look no further! The views, the space and the ability to see the stars at night make this area well worth the cost. The vacancy rate is very high at about 13%. The commute is a short 15-30 minutes on average, making this neighborhood a sweet place to call home!

Quartz Hill: This tiny neighborhood is situated on the northern end of Palmdale. The rental prices are very affordable, but at the same time, they're not exactly cheap. The area is considered very urban, which is nice because the local residents enjoy walking around here a lot.

Sungate Dr and Brisa Dr: Just below Quartz Hill sits this sweet little gem. Densely populated and urban. There are many spacious, well-established homes.

Rancho Vista Blvd and 30th St W: This small but very urban neighborhood is just minutes from the Rancho Vista Golf Course and Marie Kerr Park, both frequently visited and thoroughly enjoyed by the locals in the area. The commute is negligible, nothing to get worried about unless there is construction or a traffic accident.

Four Points: Located in east Palmdale. Predominantly populated by medium to large single-family homes and townhomes. This is stunning, established suburban area.

30th St W and W Ave O: Back up to the northern edge of town, close to the Rancho Vista Golf Course sits this urban neighborhood. The vacancy rates are moderately low at about 6%, and the commute is typically very short. It is considered to be very walkable, and is one of the more favored areas of town to live in.

Living in Palmdale

Important freeways that you will no doubt be using include the 138, 18, and the 14. If you plan to use public transit, check out the Palmdale Transportation Center, where you can catch the Greyhound Bus, Amtrak, or Metrolink, which is the rail system here.

If you have any time left over after that long commute, you'll want to check out the Antelope Valley Mall. It has a movie theater, plenty of dining options, around 140 stores, and get this about one million square feet within the building. That's a lot of shopping to do! Palmdale also has plenty of outdoor recreation, including hiking preserves, trails, golf courses, and more. So this city is worth at least a visit during your search for rentals!

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.
