City Guide
Get Shopping

The first thing any true Orange County native needs to know is how to shop. Yes, people love their materialistic pursuits around here, even more so than in Los Angeles. Consider tanning; fake, real or spread-on, it doesn't matter. And what are your thoughts on plastic surgery? Orange County is a special place. That said, you'll need to make your way to one of the several oversized and awesome retail centers here, including The District at Tustin Legacy, Jonestown Village Center, Tustin Marketplace or Old Town Tustin. Most large malls are master planned to include retail, recreational options, offices and residences.

Get Driving

Perhaps you've heard about Southern California? This, like many states, is a driving state. You won’t find public transportation in any acceptable or useful form here. Orange County may have the worst public transportation in the southern half of the state. Tustin does pride itself on having a number of unusually walkable areas, but you'll probably have to drive to them... and then walk around. That's just how things work here. Speaking of work, your commute will be pretty short, as many businesses are located nearby. But if you're not from the Golden State, prepare for the inflated gas prices. It's a bit steeper in these parts.

Get Living

Welcome to Tustin. The median household income is close to $80,000 and unemployment is dropping swiftly. Housing prices and values are rising, and they never dipped very low to begin with. People tend to take notice of such a desirable set of qualities and, sure enough, Tustin has a very low vacancy rate. It's a sliver-thin 1.3 percent for houses and a still uncomfortable 5.8 percent for rentals, including single family homes and apartments for rent. They're building as fast as they can, so feel free to come early and pick out something nice for the future; you may even be able to specify granite countertops if you hurry. Otherwise, plan at least a month or two in advance. If you're buying, you'll need even more time.

Whether renting or buying, Tustin has plenty of options, and the city makes an effort to build mixed-use housing as often as possible, while maintaining its sleek appearance. Almost 51 percent of inhabitants are owners, with 49 percent renters.

Tustin tries to walk the line between old and new, and it does a pretty decent job. The O.C. likes things shiny and modern, and Tustin's many developments reflect that, but they still try to highlight their humble beginnings, as evidenced by the downtown area, which includes Old Town Tustin. It is super charming, and it offers pedestrians a chance to escape the fiendish pace of progress, if only briefly.


While Tustin does have a few neighborhoods, they are mostly a result of those master-planned shopping districts and therefore aren't true organically grown neighborhoods like you might find in Los Angeles or San Diego. The master-planned locations come at a higher cost, as expected for new developments engineered to have a plethora of amenities. The general admission areas are still lovely; they just aren't situated atop or across from a 20-screen movie complex. Here are a few real neighborhoods near Tustin, so you can get an idea of how things work.

Tustin Planned Communities: There are several neighborhoods with all those planned amenities worth checking out, like Tustin Ranch and Tustin Legacy. They're still building new structures, so you can pick out the perfect place and possibly have it customized, maybe without additional cost. Of course, theres lots of shopping, walkable areas and other luxury goodies, but it'll cost a few extra bills a month.

Tustin Regular Communities: You don't have to go far from the ritzy developments to find a better deal on housing. Just a few blocks away, apartment buildings are competing with the modern luxury options nearby, and offering a fair amount of features for much less. You're not really missing anything but the money. Oh, and many more housing rentals are available.

Lyon Street: Don't let the name confuse you; this is a neighborhood between Tustin and Santa Ana.

Meredith Parkwood: Technically Santa Ana, this neighborhood actually benefits from touching Tustin. Of course, its proximity to the good stuff (Tustin Village) raises the prices considerably.

Lower Peters Canyon: Swinging the other way, Irvine offers this option just across its border. There aren't many renters here, so if you're looking for a studio or one-bedroom apartment, look elsewhere.

Orange County, and Tustin as a result, benefit from near perfect weather, modern developments and a passion for retail therapy. Prices are high, though not so bad as closer to the beach, but it's fairly reasonable considering all the great stuff, from shops, restaurants, and freeways, to colleges and probably plenty more, that comes with the sticker shock. Even Disneyland is just a few minutes drive away. Tustin is a youthful, energetic, fun town.

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.
