The Inland Empire Strikes Back

Would you have guessed that San Bernardino, California was one of the 100 largest cities in America? According to the last Census, it rang in at number 99, ahead of notable locales such as Salt Lake City, Utah; Providence, Rhode Island; and Spokane, Washington. Along with nearby Riverside, San Bernardino is an anchor of the sprawl east of Los Angeles known as The Inland Empire. In San Bernardino you’ve got gorgeous mountains and National Forest land a stone’s throw to the north and the east, but the heart of Hollywood is just a 60 mile shot due west. Not a bad spot, right? Let’s get you settled in.

Where’s the Value?

In most of the denser areas of San Bernardino, your best value is going to be an apartment complex. Quality varies, though, and not necessarily according to neighborhood, so a good way to get shorthand idea of a property’s level of care is to look at the pool, especially if you’re moving in summer when the water should be most used. A landlord can stage an apartment in short order, but you can’t fake the funk in a pool. Prices will be firmer in complexes because they are typically run by management firms, but there is still room for negotiating in this market.

If you’re up for living on the outskirts of town, or even a little outside, your best value will often be a single family home. In many cases, these homes are recently built. Landlords in these situations tend to be individuals, so rents for comparable situations can vary quite a bit as people tend to over/undervalue their own personal property more than commercial outfits.

Neighborhoods? Sure! We Got a Million of ‘Em!

As a city that grew recently and at breakneck speed, San Bernardino hasn’t developed neighborhoods with the same history and level of definition as some other American cities. You’re not exactly going to wander around a corner and sense you have entered The French Quarter or Haight-Ashbury. Lines here are fluid, and even the locals will give you surprisingly different boundaries for areas they give a common name.

That’s really it. There are some gems in there; you just have to dig a little to find ‘em. In any case, we’re sure you’ll find something that fits you like a glove.

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.
