Preparing to Rent in Rowland Heights

The bad news about Rowland Heights is that the vacancy level for unoccupied rental properties in this community is exceedingly low, around 2%. You know what that means! The competition for available good rental housing is quite fierce, so you must have a method to your apartment search to increase your chances of success. Write down a list of your top three priorities, or essentials, in a rental property; you know, the stuff that you absolutely cannot compromise. Say you have two dogs, one of the requirements in your new rental home would be a good pet-friendly policy. If you do not have a car, the proximity of your apartment to public transit points would be a plus, and so on. Knowing what you want makes it easier to settle on the right apartment without delay. Make diligent inquiries into the types of amenities the rental apartment offers residents. Will you pay for utilities like gas and electric, or is coverage included in your rental agreement?

Use the Right Channels: If you can afford to, a reputable real estate agent might be a good investment to help you scout the different neighborhoods for that perfect apartment. Where cash is not exactly flowing, exercise caution so that you don’t fall for con artists who offer you an apartment with defects or try to hightail it with your hard-earned cash.

Background checks: Most rental managers will conduct a background and credit check on prospective renters. Present yourself in the best light calculated to impress during your rental interview. Letters of reference from your employer or your previous landlord might also come in handy to pave the way for you to get that apartment you want. Another thing you might be asked to provide is some form of proof of income, such as pay slips, or a letter from your employer. Also, having your security deposit ready to seal the agreement is always a good idea.

Rowland Heights Neighborhoods

Just like any other community, Rowland Heights boasts some neighborhoods that are more popular or exclusive than others. These considerations will affect the price of real estate in that particular neighborhood. We have put together a highlight list of some Rowland Heights neighborhoods and have included the cost of living in these places, represented by $ signs. The more $ you see, the more expensive the neighborhood.

Otterbein: This is a somewhat established neighborhood, with many homes that were built from the 1940s to 1999. Real estate prices here are quite pricey. The residents in this neighborhood are very culturally diverse, with more people of Asian and Armenian ancestry than most other neighborhoods in the country. $$$

Fullerton Rd / Mescal St: Even more expensive than Otterbein, with a fairly low vacancy rate. Apartments in this area are very scarce because the majority of homes consist of single-family homes. $$$$

Marne: The rental property prices in this area are still expensive in comparison to the rest of the U.S., but somewhat reasonable for the LA area. As culturally rich as most of the other neighborhoods in Rowland Heights, this is a moderate income neighborhood. $$$

As a family-oriented community, there are lots of things for the family to do, with amusement parks, art centers and other activities. Even those who enjoy a vibrant nightlife will find bars and other forms of entertainment. With this said, we wish you all the best in your search for an apartment in Rowland Heights.

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.
