City GuidePasadena
Well, well, look at you. You’ve packed your SPF 3000 and year-round summer clothes and you’ve decided to join the ranks of the California-cool in Pasadena. We’ve got to admit, we’re a bit envious. One of greater Los Angeles’s most eclectic and aesthetic areas, Pasadena is a primo living locale for Southern Californians lucky enough to call the “City of Roses” home. Ready to take the plunge and score yourself the perfect Pasadena pad? Then read on because we’ve got you covered …

Each New Year’s Day, millions of viewers whose own cities resemble glorified ice skating rinks tune in to watch the Tournament of Roses Parade in perpetually sunny Pasadena. Why, you ask, do they torture themselves like this? We’re not sure, but our best guess is that it reminds them that, at least somewhere in the world, the flowers are always in bloom and loud, tropical shirts never go out of fashion (So why not retire that snow shovel once and for all and join the eternally sun-tanned in the much, much, much greener pastures of Pasadena?).

The city also hosts the annual Rose Bowl football game, and has hosted five Super Bowls. Because of the city’s idyllic weather conditions, parades (the offbeat Doo Dah Parade each spring is arguably more entertaining than its New Year’s Day counterpart), and proximity to L.A., something big is almost always going on somewhere in the city.

Having trouble with Craigslist Pasadena? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

“Come on Pasadena, do the locomotion …”

Many attractions are within walking distance, and public transportation (Metrolink or the city bus) is available.

Neighborhoods

South Pasadena Anchored by Colorado Boulevard (think of a Bleaker-Beale Street hybrid with a touch of Hollywood Blvd. and a hint of 5th Avenue), South Pasadena boasts the bulk of the city’s entertainment, shopping, and dining options. South Pasadena is the city’s cultural and economic hub and one of SoCal’s most coveted living areas. Studio units in South Pasadena are likely to cost you $1300 or more. Factor in utilities – including air conditioning that you might feel compelled to run nearly year-round – and you’re looking at $1500 minimum for even the most modest living quarters

Plenty of more modestly priced lodgings are available in the city’s northern and eastern districts. If you want to stay close to Pasadena’s southern-based epicenter, you might want to check out the variety of apartments, condos, and homes for rent just north of Highway 210. They are also much more affordable, and renters can often find up-to-date, quality lodgings for $1200 or so.

On the east side, closer to Temple City, apartments and rental homes often pop up for $1200-$1400. Not only are these tree-lined neighborhoods visually appealing but they are often priced to move quickly (sometimes as low as a grand.)

Words to the SoCal Wise

Here a few tricks of the trade that will help you find the perfect place to call home in Pasadena:

Remember that in Pasadena you’re paying not so much for amenities as you are location, location, and more location. So if living in the heart of the city is less important to you than living near the heart of the city, you may want to consider the eastern and northern neighborhoods.

Sometimes crazy-sweet apartment deals do pop up (yes, even in South Pasadena) when landlords need to fill a unit quickly. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to submit an application, because they won’t be available for long.

We get the feeling that once you get to know Pasadena, you’ll feel the same way.

Hope this helps, and welcome to the City of Roses!

August 2019 Pasadena Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Pasadena Rent Report. Pasadena rents remained steady over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Pasadena rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Pasadena rents declined over the past month

Pasadena rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they have increased slightly by 1.4% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Pasadena stand at $1,639 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,106 for a two-bedroom. Pasadena's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.1%, but trails the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across the Los Angeles Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Pasadena, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Los Angeles metro, all of them have seen prices rise. 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 4.2%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,690, while one-bedrooms go for $2,093.
    • Irvine has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Los Angeles metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,738; rents grew 0.4% over the past month and 1.2% over the past year.
    • Lancaster has the least expensive rents in the Los Angeles metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,612; rents went down 0.5% over the past month but rose 1.2% over the past year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Pasadena

    As rents have increased slightly in Pasadena, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Compared to most large cities across the country, Pasadena is less affordable for renters.

    • Rents increased slightly in other cities across the state, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 1.1% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.5% in San Jose, 1.2% in San Francisco, and 0.5% in San Diego.
    • Pasadena's median two-bedroom rent of $2,106 is above the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 1.4% increase in Pasadena.
    • While Pasadena's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Austin (+3.3%), and Boston (+2.4%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Pasadena than most large cities. For example, Houston has a median 2BR rent of $1,034, where Pasadena is more than twice 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.

    Renters say:

    • "I love how walkable the city is. I love the safety and the attitudes of the people. However, not all parts of Pasadena are equally safe." – Shaili K.
    • "It’s a nice suburb, but housing is too expensive." – Namita S.
    • "I love the family-like culture and the community where most people are nice. It is very safe and pet-friendly to live here. But I don’t like the rent prices. They are too high, especially if you are young or in college and working in retail. It’s hard to afford a place by yourself." – Payton A.
    • "I love that I’m local to shops and restaurants. I hate the limitations on street parking, though. You need permits to park anywhere, unless you buy a temporary one and the kiosks aren’t always easy to find." – Marie C.
