Poway is a city of 47,811 people. It's located in San Diego County. But don't be fooled; this isn't exactly a coastal community. It's a little bit inland, which means you'll have to drive a whole 30 minutes to get to Carlsbad, La Jolla, Oceanside or any of the other little cities near the beach. If this doesn't exactly deter you from looking for property rentals in Poway, you're certainly not alone. Once you get to know a bit more about this city, you should start your search for places for rent.

Looking for Housing in Poway

The vacancy rate in Poway is 2%, so your search for housing for rent might be challenging. Whether you're looking for an all utilities paid place or pet-friendly housing, you should begin your search as soon as possible for the best results. As pretty as Poway is, its streets aren't exactly inviting enough for you to live on them, so you need to work quickly to find a home here.

What are the housing costs in Poway?

Because this city is located slightly inland, the prices here are not as astronomical as you might assume. The median rent is only a little higher than California's average, which is a pretty nice surprise for a San Diego County community. The price to purchase property is also just a little higher than the state average, though to be fair, it's about triple the national average.

What should you bring on your search for a home?

Since there are not many vacancies in Poway, you need to be prepared when you start your housing search. The typical owner of a rental property requires prospective tenants to show proof of income, such as their last few pay stubs. They also usually expect a deposit, so come prepared to spend a little money when you reserve your spot. Of course, this being Southern California and all, you probably expected as much.

Neighborhoods in Poway

If you are considering moving to Poway, you should get an idea of the costs, housing types and amenities in each neighborhood. Whether you want an apartment or a rental house here, you should be able to find a place that exceeds your expectations. The following are just some of the most well-known areas throughout Poway.

Rancho Bernardo/Green Valley: This neighborhood is among the most expensive, maybe because it's on the western edge of the city and therefore slightly closer to the coast! You'll find lots of single-family homes and some townhouses here. The housing is situated along Pomerado Road and Espola Road, just south of Valle Verde Park.

Poway Road and Route 67: If you want slightly more affordable housing, head over to the southeastern side of the city. This is another suburban area with mostly single-family homes. As you might guess, this area is next to State Route 67, which can take you north and south through San Diego County. When you live here, you will be just north of the very large Sycamore Canyon County Park.

Poway Road and Blue Crystal Trail: This is yet another fairly affordable area made up of mostly single-family homes in the northeastern part of the city. Just a few of the amenities here include the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve, Lake Poway and Lake Ramona. Be sure to bring your swimsuit and a desire to get a little closer to nature when you move here!

Camino Del Aguila and Highland Valley Road: If you want to be at the northern edge of Poway, very close to Interstate 15, check out this neighborhood. Here you'll find a number of spacious single-family homes, plus a few townhouses to choose from. You will also have easy access to Stoneridge Country Club, Maderas Golf Club and Cordiano Winery. What more do you need in a neighborhood?

Espola Road and Summer Sage Road: This is practically in the middle of Poway, so only move here if you're not claustrophobic! Plus, you will find nary an apt for rent here since this area basically only has single-family homes. But if you do end up here, you'll be rewarded with close proximity to Lake Poway, Espola Road and Poway Center for the Performing Arts.

City Center: If you're looking for apartments, you need to check out this area, which has the exciting urban feel you typically find in the center of any city. Here you will have fast access to everything from Old Poway Park and Dearborn Memorial Park to Hamburger Factory and Caf Lily.

Danielson Street and Scripps Poway Parkway: This is among the most affordable areas of Poway and is located in the southern part of the city. This is where you will see a mixture of apartment complexes and single-family houses. Sprinkled among the housing, you'll also find a Costco, Rolling Hills Boarding Stables, Poway Plaza Shopping Center and Sportsplex USA. Clearly, you will have pretty much everything you need in your neighborhood if you choose to move to this area!

Living in Poway

Before you move here, you should know the kinds of recreational amenities available to you. The first thing to consider is that the weather here is nice, just like it is in most parts of Southern California. Residents here spend a lot of time outside. If you want to get a workout, for example, head to Iron Mountain for a hike, or walk along Twin Peaks Trail. You can also hang out at Old Poway Park and even ride the Poway-Midland Railroad around to get a great view of the greenery here.

For those days when you prefer to stay indoors, you can catch a movie at the local Digiplex or watch a play at PowPAC Community Theater. In addition, like most cities of a decent size, Poway has at least one Target, Walmart and Kohl's. Plus, there are several shopping centers with a variety of stores. You can shop and eat at places like Creekside Plaza and Old Poway Village Shopping Center.

Of course, if you want even more variety, you can travel to nearby cities in San Diego County. For instance, Escondido features North County Shopping Center while Encinitas has Rancho Santa Fe Plaza, and San Diego itself is home to Westfield Mall University Towne Center.

If you get tired of shopping and eating - which does happen, believe it or not - you can head to one of the nearby beaches. Sure, Poway doesn't have its own coastline, but pretty much all the cities within a half hour west sure do. You can choose to drive to Carlsbad, Oceanside, La Jolla or Encinitas in the North County area. Or you can head down south to San Diego and check out Imperial Beach, Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Pacific Beachthe list goes on. But the general idea is that there sure are a lot of beaches just a short drive from Poway!

If you are concerned about getting around this city, know that the Metropolitan Transit System has three routes that service Poway by bus. If you prefer to drive yourself, you can expect to take the Interstate 15 at some point. That's because it goes north and south, connecting to several other freeways that include Interstate 5, Interstate 8 and State Route 163. You can just hop on any of these and get off at one of the many Poway exits to start looking for the rental property of your dreams!

What should you bring on your search for a home?

Since there are not many vacancies in Poway, you need to be prepared when you start your housing search. The typical owner of a rental property requires prospective tenants to show proof of income, such as their last few pay stubs. They also usually expect a deposit, so come prepared to spend a little money when you reserve your spot. Of course, this being Southern California and all, you probably expected as much.

Neighborhoods in Poway

If you are considering moving to Poway, you should get an idea of the costs, housing types and amenities in each neighborhood. Whether you want an apartment or a rental house here, you should be able to find a place that exceeds your expectations. The following are just some of the most well-known areas throughout Poway.

Rancho Bernardo/Green Valley: This neighborhood is among the most expensive, maybe because it's on the western edge of the city and therefore slightly closer to the coast! You'll find lots of single-family homes and some townhouses here. The housing is situated along Pomerado Road and Espola Road, just south of Valle Verde Park.

Poway Road and Route 67: If you want slightly more affordable housing, head over to the southeastern side of the city. This is another suburban area with mostly single-family homes. As you might guess, this area is next to State Route 67, which can take you north and south through San Diego County. When you live here, you will be just north of the very large Sycamore Canyon County Park.

Poway Road and Blue Crystal Trail: This is yet another fairly affordable area made up of mostly single-family homes in the northeastern part of the city. Just a few of the amenities here include the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve, Lake Poway and Lake Ramona. Be sure to bring your swimsuit and a desire to get a little closer to nature when you move here!

Camino Del Aguila and Highland Valley Road: If you want to be at the northern edge of Poway, very close to Interstate 15, check out this neighborhood. Here you'll find a number of spacious single-family homes, plus a few townhouses to choose from. You will also have easy access to Stoneridge Country Club, Maderas Golf Club and Cordiano Winery. What more do you need in a neighborhood?

Espola Road and Summer Sage Road: This is practically in the middle of Poway, so only move here if you're not claustrophobic! Plus, you will find nary an apt for rent here since this area basically only has single-family homes. But if you do end up here, you'll be rewarded with close proximity to Lake Poway, Espola Road and Poway Center for the Performing Arts.

City Center: If you're looking for apartments, you need to check out this area, which has the exciting urban feel you typically find in the center of any city. Here you will have fast access to everything from Old Poway Park and Dearborn Memorial Park to Hamburger Factory and Caf Lily.

Danielson Street and Scripps Poway Parkway: This is among the most affordable areas of Poway and is located in the southern part of the city. This is where you will see a mixture of apartment complexes and single-family houses. Sprinkled among the housing, you'll also find a Costco, Rolling Hills Boarding Stables, Poway Plaza Shopping Center and Sportsplex USA. Clearly, you will have pretty much everything you need in your neighborhood if you choose to move to this area!

Living in Poway

Before you move here, you should know the kinds of recreational amenities available to you. The first thing to consider is that the weather here is nice, just like it is in most parts of Southern California. Residents here spend a lot of time outside. If you want to get a workout, for example, head to Iron Mountain for a hike, or walk along Twin Peaks Trail. You can also hang out at Old Poway Park and even ride the Poway-Midland Railroad around to get a great view of the greenery here.

For those days when you prefer to stay indoors, you can catch a movie at the local Digiplex or watch a play at PowPAC Community Theater. In addition, like most cities of a decent size, Poway has at least one Target, Walmart and Kohl's. Plus, there are several shopping centers with a variety of stores. You can shop and eat at places like Creekside Plaza and Old Poway Village Shopping Center.

Of course, if you want even more variety, you can travel to nearby cities in San Diego County. For instance, Escondido features North County Shopping Center while Encinitas has Rancho Santa Fe Plaza, and San Diego itself is home to Westfield Mall University Towne Center.

If you get tired of shopping and eating - which does happen, believe it or not - you can head to one of the nearby beaches. Sure, Poway doesn't have its own coastline, but pretty much all the cities within a half hour west sure do. You can choose to drive to Carlsbad, Oceanside, La Jolla or Encinitas in the North County area. Or you can head down south to San Diego and check out Imperial Beach, Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Pacific Beachthe list goes on. But the general idea is that there sure are a lot of beaches just a short drive from Poway!

If you are concerned about getting around this city, know that the Metropolitan Transit System has three routes that service Poway by bus. If you prefer to drive yourself, you can expect to take the Interstate 15 at some point. That's because it goes north and south, connecting to several other freeways that include Interstate 5, Interstate 8 and State Route 163. You can just hop on any of these and get off at one of the many Poway exits to start looking for the rental property of your dreams!
