City Guide
Torrance
Neighborhoods

Like most Los Angeles County cities, Torrance's neighborhoods are subject to the prices of the surrounding areas, and the closer you are to the beach, the more expensive your rent is going to be.

West Torrance So, let's start with West Torrance, which is generally considered to be The Torrance Area. Walk to the beach, bike to Santa Monica, live the dream. Though rental types vary from new construction to older rental homes, the cost of beach proximity jacks up rental prices from anywhere between $1400 to $1700 for a two bedroom. If you're dead set on beach living on budget, be prepared to make major sacrifices when it comes to budget and space in West Torrance.

North Torrance It has close proximity to Redondo and Hermosa Beach. Expect to pay between $1500 and $2000 for a two bedroom in this area.

South and East Torrance South and east Torrance border on Long Beach. The area has slightly cheaper rents. A large number of new constructions around Anza and Lomita Boulevards provide living options for a reasonable price, too. Two bedrooms in this area generally range from $1100 to $1400.

Rentals: Types and Tips

Speaking of recent construction, the new buildings popping up have made Torrance's apartment scene variable. Once dominated by outdated 70s style rentals, new construction of larger and more modern condos and apartment complexes have diversified the market. Newer rentals have more interesting floor plans and more amenities, including swimming pools and on-site laundry.

These newer and larger apartment complexes are generally listed with realtors, which charge slightly more in credit check fees and have a more rigorous application process than private owners. Smaller, older units, as well as private rental houses can generally be found without the aid of a realtor on apartment websites (cough, apartmentlist, cough), as well as in Torrance's local paper, which is adorably named The Daily Breeze.

The wide variety of apartments also means that the rental market is less competitive than the surrounding areas. That said, you can’t just waltz into the area and expect to find a place the same day. Make sure you start your apartment search about 30 to 60 days before your move-in date in order to guarantee your beach pad before you relocate.

Public Transport

Torrance is serviced by both its own small-scale intercity bus company -- which operates locally and into Redondo and Long Beach -- and Los Angeles' LACMTA Metro bus that can get Torrance residents to downtown LA.

Good luck out there!

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Torrance's results from the first annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 18,000 renters, provides new insights into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

"Renters gave Torrance extremely high marks for overall satisfaction driven by high satisfaction with safety and access to recreation," says Andrew Tam, Vice President of Data Science at Apartment List. "The US renter population is at its highest level in 20 years, and while Torrance grades quite well across most major categories, renters had slightly lower than average plans for homeownership, which indicates that they may look elsewhere in the longer term."

Key findings in Torrance include the following:

  • Torrance renters give their city an A+ overall, ranking the Southern California city 5th in the nation out of the 100 cities we surveyed.
  • Renters gave Torrance a B+ for confidence in the local economy, with 29% saying it's on the right track.
  • Torrance received a B- for homeownership plans, with 59% of respondents planning to buy in the future.
  • Torrance renters give it an A for access to recreational activities, with 77% saying that they are "satisfied" or "very satisfied".
  • Torrance scored slightly above average with a B+ for quality of local schools: 60% of respondents expressed satisfaction versus the national average of 55%.
  • Overall satisfaction among Southern California cities was led by Torrance (A+) followed by San Diego (A), Los Angeles (B), Anaheim (C+), Long Beach (C), and San Bernardino (F).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for city satisfaction were Plano, TX; Boston, MA; Arlington, VA; Austin, TX; and Torrance, CA. The lowest rated cities were Newark, NJ; New Haven, CT; Bridgeport, CT; Hartford, CT; and Columbia, SC.
